Reviewed 20 July 2013

We stayed in Super Deluxe room, room was descent enough for a budget hotel but a bit small for super deluxe category but we usually wont stay a long in room in Amritsar.

The location is the best so you wont much about space etc... it's bang opp. Golden Temple so we could visit Golden Temple whenever we wanted to.

Even Jalianwalla baug is just 5-7 mins walkable from the Hotel

Food was good, overall a nice experience. Would recommend.

To start with I would advise all the pilgrims/tourists visiting Golden Temple to not get influenced by any agent who would promise you to get a Hotel Room the moment you arrive here. Instead on your own you can search a decent hotel in the area or better before coming do a basic search on websites like tripadvisor.
One of the decent hotels in the vicinity is Hotel Indus where I had a comfortable stay with my family, for one night, in June 2013. Though to reach the said Hotel you have to carry your luggage for half a kilometer (from car parking to Hotel). Hotel Indus is very conveniently located (right outside the gates of the Temple) with some rooms and Terrace having the clear view of Temple.
Tariff wise its marginally on the higher side but still affordable. Staff is very co-operative and food needs to be ordered an hour in advance.
Overall a decent budget hotel and would surely stay here on my next visit :)

Room Tip: Always ask for a deluxe room, facing the Temple, on the second floor.

We stayed in a 'deluxe' room (standard room, nothing too deluxe about it). Was clean, simple, had the amenities we expected). We checked in about 10pm, so it was dark. It wasnt until morning that we realised our room was internal/windowless....we slept in until 10.45am (must have needed it). We stayed 2 nights, both sleeps were equally as blacked-out, which we enjoyed (working mon-fri in delhi so weekend sleep ins are desired). Needless to say, we also had no need to use earplugs, no external noises were heard.
There were many short powercuts. Overall it was not a problem for us. The room had cooling, we slept in a comfortable temperature (nice after spending all day putaide in 40oC etc).
We wanted to stay here for the central location.
We ate and drank at the rooftop cafe (only ones up there at the time) and enjoyed the peacefulness and Golden Temple views. Veg only and no beer. Food was fresh and tasty.
Staff were attentative and friendly.
We opted to use the stairs to get up to our room rather than the lift, the stairwell was used to store rubbish/washing (for hours/all day, not just an hour or so) from rooms being cleaning. Would have been nice to not have to watch our steps in the stairwell and dodge rubbish.
We were content here. Would stay again, however, dont think I will visot Amritsar again (too many other places to visit in the world!).

I stayed at the "Hindus" in January. It was freezing, and there was only a floor fan heater that could not help much. The windows are just part of the wall without knobs. Thought the temple view is great, we could not breath fresh air for 3 nights.
Stuff is nice, but service is quite chaotic and slow.
It's overpriced. 70$ for a tiny room and bad service is way too much. Reservation was easily done on the internet. no breakfast.
It's central and convinienty located (3 min. walk from the temple), but nothing much, unless you consider the view of one third of the temple worth your money.

Room Tip: Only look for upper rooms facing the temple.

We stayed in this Hotel on 28th and 1st march 2013. I had selected this Hotel after going through all the reviews of many hotels in Amritsar, mainly for its proximity to the Golden temple and also for the great view of the golden temple from the hotel Room. I specifically selected Room Number 304 as it was mentioned in a review as the best room for the temple view from the Room. I was not disappointed in my expectation. A big glassed window overlooking the road below and the temple. The room was not big but was enough for the two of us. The maintenance of the room and linen was excellent. I found water stagnation in the bath room after my bath and when I complained it was attended with in minutes even though the time was 22-30 in the night.
Another best thing is the best quality of food made by the hotel restaurant and pleasing manners, of the staff. Over all it was a very good experience of stay for the money we pay as room tariff. I am uploading the photo i had taken through the window of the hotel and also from the restarant in the fourth floor.

I stayed here in month of Feb 2013 with my wife here and the experience was pathetic. I had booked Deluxe room which was without any window. At check in they provided us a room on 1st floor which was just painted and had a very strong smell of paint, we refused that room and then they showed us the basement room which was interconnected with another room, the large wooden door was the separator for other room. We requested to give us another room on upper floor but the owner and the receptionist said they were fully booked. I believe since they had foreigner visitors they them the preference. Also since we have done an online booking and could not get the money refunded we had no option but to take that basement room. We felt quite claustrophobic in that room with no fresh air, only thing which provided some air was air conditioner which also was not working very well. The noise from the next room didn't allowed us a good sleep either.
The only good thing about this hotel is its location and the view of Golden Temple from the terrace of this hotel.
Wouldn't recommend this hotel to any of my friends.

Room Tip: Choose upper level rooms with window.

The hotel staff was very pleasant and nice and also helpful, but the rooms are cold, smells like mold and just plain disgusting. Food was very good cook is exceptional. The view of the golden temple was gorgeous but the cox and kings lady from Gujarat took double the amount of money and never paid the hotel until the manager of the establishment complained to us. And made us sign papers saying that they didn't. Receive payment even though we paid cash. Do not go on tours with cox and kings .. Worst experience ever. Plus we are foreigners and didn't know that their was a limit of 20 kg per person on flight. So we ended up paying over 5000 rupees just for our luggage next time they should let us know.

Room Tip: Not on first floor
