“excellent location to stay in Amritsar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

You can compare this property to any Hilton Garden Inn or the Marriott Courtyard hotel in the US. In the US, we are accustomed to huge properties with garden etc in a nice surrounding. This place is in the main center of town so to speak, if you are an Indian like me, you would not mind the location. There are multiple eating options within 5 minutes walking distance - Crystal being one of them. Also dont miss the Kulfa shop couple of shops next to the hotel while walking towards Crystal restaurant.

The hotel itself has a good restaurant, but the prices are little bit on the higher side, but then you get the crowd free environment within the confines of the hotel. The hotel itself is excellent, as I said can compare to any Courtyard or Garden Inn from the States, the staff super friendly and helpful. Very clean.

Only thing is found missing was a English news channel in the hotel cable TV. At least they should have BBC World Service, CNN, or Al Zazeera English.

Distance to Maharaja Ranjit Singh Museum - 5 minute walk
Rickshaw rate to the Golden Temple - Indian Rupees 30
Time taken from Airport - 35-40 minutes

As others have said, they also can organize a cab to go to the Wagah border for the evening flag lowering ceremony. Read my reviews on that too!

If you are visiting Amritsar make sure you understand that this hotel is literally built on a busy road with no space around, you open the curtain and you will find a wall or some dirty looking building. Any way I stayed in this hotel for a night, rooms are spacious and clean, staff is helpful, breakfast is good if you are not against the hot pepper. I was pleased with the overall service and attitude of the staff, they also have a car you can hire to go back and forth to the Golden Temple and the prices are reasonable as well.
It is not a five star property........ Just a simple hotel with bad location but good services. My praise for the hotel management for keeping this property look and feel nice with in the premises.

A good clean hotel with helpfull staff and nice rooms at a reasonable price. Not much within easy walking distace around it but the hotel will help you book a car to go to the golden temple or nearby wagha border at a reasonable price or its easy to flag down an auto rickshaw outside.
Food was good and well prepared.

We spent a total of 5 nights in this hotel and it was (almost) the best one of our trip. The rooms (We had two because our visit was interrupted by a trip to Dharamsala.) were large and clean, the beds very comfortable, the sheets and towels clean and new, the bathroom impeccable. The restaurant is quite good also.Definitely recommended. Although it is north of the Old City, a tuk-tuk down there or to the Golden Temple is less than 100 INR.

Arriving at Country Inn & Suites Amritsar to a warm welcome. The location was within walking distance to the magnificent Golden Temple. The room was comfortable and clean. The staff could not have been more helpful during my 2-night stay. Kindly organizing my trip to see the 'lowering of the flags' ceremony at the Wagah border and various other forms of transportation. The restaurant food was delicious (I am not one for hotel food, but this was good). Thank you for the pleasant surprise.
