The Grand Hotel is an old hotel near the train station in Amritsar. It looks a bit shabby in places but the room itself was very nice and spotlessly clean. There didn't seem to be hot water in the room but you could call reception and ask for a bucket of it I believe, which is what the people in the room next to me did. All rooms are on the inside of the hotel so it is quiet and there is a garden, with lawn which is nice to sit around. I had dinner at the hotel every night and the food was good. In fact I had one of the best chicken tikka masalas that Ive ever had there. The hotel has WIFI which is a real bonus in India. It costs two hundred rupees a day but it is worth it in my opinion. My room cost twelve hundred rupees a night which included taxes. There are rickshaws outside the hotel who will take you to the sights including the golden temple for around fifty rupees each way. The hotel also organise a tour which takes in the border ceremony, the mother temple and the golden temple at night for a total of five hundred rupees. The final bonus is that this hotel has a bar! Kingfisher is available on tap for seventy rupees a glass - a schooner for you Australians reading - which was great for me as I hadn't had a beer in three weeks in India.
All of the staff I came into contact with were very professional and friendly and I would definitely stay there again if I was in Amritsar.
