“Good rooms, poor food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2009

Was at MK hotel for 4 nights for a friends wedding. Decent rooms - fairly new. Bathrooms too were clean and well equipped. On welcome they were to give a fruit basket. So we called room service and they sent a platter of cut/soggy stale fruit. The restraunt was just about OK. Food was average. The balck dal, staple of punjabi cusine, was too salty.

To summarise. Very good accomadation. Poor cuisine. But you don't really need to be bothered about that since amritsar many eatery options to chose from - including the momos & kulchas that you get in the small food court opp the hotel.

Stayed three nights while visiting the Golden Temple. Comfortable clean room with airconditioning. This hotel hosts dinners & weddings every night we could hear the thump of music in the background. Sometimes 3 events on the same night. Nice to see the parade of guests dressed in their best!

MK was the second hotel we looked at in Amritsar the first (Ista) would not accommodate and extra bed for the third person in our party. We were a little pushed for time so it would have had to have been truly hideous for us not to stay. We arrived in the middle of one of three weddings being held on that night so the entrance was all but blocked for a good wee while. The lift had broken down due to all the activity with the guests and impatient people pushing all the buttons. The room was spacious and there was room for a third bed but there was an awful smell in it, we finally tracked down two different scented "air fresheners" and disposed of them as the combination of smells was not great. However these were obviously masking an underlying smell which we never quite identified but did cause us to cough and sneeze most of the night resulting in minimal sleep. The restaurants were ok and not expensive. We were pleased to only be staying one night.

We visited Amritsar with my extended family from ages 87 to 30. It was a clean well lighted place, not luxurious but well maintained and hospitable.

It is not as expensive as international chain but still provides good facilities.

It is not that close to Golden Temple so if you plan to visit the temple either at late night or early morning, you should be prepared for 30 min ride.

I stayed at this hotel for one night with my mother. Nice and comfortable, but still a lot of scope of improvement. The rooms look luxurious at the first impression, but many items were non-functional. Examples:

1) The hand-held shower was not working.
2) The bedside lamp was not working.
3) The electric kettle was not working.
4) Water drainage in the bathroom was not proper.

With the rates of almost 5K per night, these few items make a lot of difference. The food is average ...not too great.

  • Liked — Comfortable beds
  • Disliked — The water logging in the bathroom
