“Decent standard and convenient location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

Easy to get to from the railway station and a few minutes rickshaw from the bus station, this hotel was fine for our short visit to Amritsar. The staff and receptionists were always very courteous, smiling and interested to help. We paid less than 1,500 rupees per night for our room.

We were not impressed by the meal provided by the hotel garden restaurant- it was overpriced and stingy. After that, we always ate out.

The room quality was good - a decent standard. The free wi-fi didn't initially work, but after the first day it was really good. Unfortunately our shower didn't heat up, so we only ever got a luke-warm shower even though it looked like it was working. Slightly frustrating, but in spite of that we were happy with the level of comfort. There was a flat screenTV in the room.

The guided tour provided by the hotel proved to be good value and worth doing. For less than 600 rupees we saw the Mata temple, made a trip to the Attari border crossing ceremony and the Golden temple all in the first afternoon.

I would be happy to use this hotel again in future.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the entrance are quieter when people arrive late at night.

Stayed at Grand hotel Amritsar for two nights 23rd & 24th Oct. 2013. The distance from railway station to hotel is just two minutes walking. I reached to the hotel with my wife from station without taking any vehicle. Nice stay. Rooms & bathrooms are enough spacious and clean. We booked super delux room, where AC worked properly. They arranged Wagha border tour, which include Mata temple and night vision of Golden temple. The hotel arranged one big luxury 7 seater Innova cab, but we were only 4 tourist inside the car, me my wife and a couple from Sweden. The hotel has a bar and restaurent, where draught beer and tasty food is available. After a long gap i took 4 mug chilled draught beer which was a great relax mood. Tried tanduri iteams there, very tasty and stomatch friendly. The hotel is very safe to stay with family.

Great location: across the road from railway station. If you enjoy exploring on foot, within walking distance to all major landmarks in Amritsar. Stayed here 2 nights. Appreciated garden courtyard off street: a quiet, calm, plant filled oasis in which to recoup after a day of exploring in the city. Hotel restaurant food good, typical northern India fare. Close to other restaurants if you want alternatives. Room was large, plentiful hot water. Good value.

I stayed here with my family. It was very comfortable. The owner was very kind and helpful. I appreciate the amazing service.we enjoyed the lovely garden and had our dinner here which was good and value for money.the best of the hotel is its walking distance from railway station. The hotel organizes tours to the border,Golden Temple,Mata temple at 590 only per person. Staff were friendly amd were ready to help on any of our inquiries. Will recommand this hotel and would be happy to stay here again.

Great location. Nice, large clean room with hot water, Aircon and TV. Fast wifi.
Lovely and peaceful, somehow managed to be quiet even when full.
Staff helpful and good food.
Not sure where the fault was but we booked a taxi for 03:30 to catch a flight and it was 25mins late-leave plenty of time!

We have had 3 great days here. Ok its not Grand but nor is the price. Ideal for the station, bed comfortable, plumbing that works. Not a sign of a mosquito (shutters have netting), bedbug or any other fauna bar the 2 cats playing in the garden and a friendly lizard on the ceiling. We are beginning to get a whiff of disinformation from some earlier posts that may be plain malicious and not posted by true guests. Seems an unlikely spot to take VIP's,unless you are a complete cheapskate & they are neither V or I P's. We have had 3 dinners and 2 lunches, all of which delicious and plentiful and gave us no problems.

The temples and border trip was great fun, not a guided tour, as others have said, but efficient transport to the Mata Temple, crazy place, well worth a visit, the rather bizarre border closing ceremony (worth it for the people watching alone) and the Golden Temple at night (stunning). Don't know how much a reliable taxi would have cost.

Would recommend rooms on upper floor for the trough draft and they are currently being repainted, not before time we agree, our room was neither overly clean in the corners nor was its decoration in its first youth. Nevertheless we found the staff friendly and helpful,including the manager, recommended for all those on a budget.

PS, Hotel sign is visible from outside the railway station but taking the bridge over the road is definitely the safest way to cross even if its a little further.

Room Tip: Would recommend rooms on upper floor for the trough draft and they are currently being repainted, aw...
