“Best place to stay in Amritsar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2009

We stayed here for 2 nights in May, 09, paid $58 (2750 INR) per night for a suite and were very pleased with the hotel overall. We liked the room we had, it was one of the top floor suites and was quite spacious; it had 3 single beds, a bathroom and a sitting area with a couch, table and chair. The hotel is right across the street from the Golden Temple and we could see the Temple from our window and even hear the singing. The AC worked well, the bathroom fixtures worked well, the beds were comfortable, the room was clean and the service was excellent. The hotel staff was friendly and efficient; it seems they know how to deal with Westerners as we had no problems communicating with them, which was a great relief to us. We ate at the little cafe located on the first floor of the hotel most of the time because it was convenient and the food was affordable and tasty. It was really a relief to stay at a place where everything works the way it is supposed to. We liked this place a lot!!

C J Intl. Hotel is so close to the Golden Temple... that you feel like you are staying in the Shelter of God itself..... You get Majestic View of Golden Temple and hear the Kirtans (HYMNS) that soothes your SOUL...... The Hotel is well maintained, Staff is Cordial, warm, friendly.. SERVICE IS QUICK.... FOOD IS EXCELLENT.... I visited during hot summer month...though I wanted to see the city around i didnt feel like leaving the Hotel Room....during the day due to the Heat Outside, even in the Late Evening when I came back to the Hotel after Sight-Seeing.. I FELT I was BACK HOME.... This Hotel is Spic & Span, NEAT, CLEAN, TIDY.. PERFECT.. HOTEL IS OF INTERNATIONAL STANDARD.. and you get every bit of what you pay... IT IS WORTH PAYING............

I was staying at the CJ International for 2 nights. The location is fantastic, in some rooms you can hear the singing from the golden temple and the hotel is so close to the golden temple (across the street) that you can visit the temple several times a day and see it in daylight and at night (well worth it).
The cheap shared taxis for the border spectacle leave also right from the temple and virtually almost in front of the hotel, another big advantage.
The rooms are well equipped (some more expensive ones are just fantastic), great hot showers, comfy beds and very clean. Staff is friendly and helpful.

Stayed here about 5 weeks ago when taxi driver recommended it and I can honestly say (after having to bring family to visit border crossing and golden temple every time a new member arrives from overseas) that it is the best hotel in Amristsar- paid about 70 US a night for a triple room and it was just so nice to come in off the dusty streets of Amritsar to this haven. I am a princess traveller living in India for 2 years and love my comforts and this was at least 4 star standard spotlessly clean, tiled sparkly floors, WHITE clean linen on beds, bar fridge, wide screen TV, tasteful bright decor and the best part- literally right across from the amazing golden temple. We looked out our window and were so surprised by how close we were. Also it was the Sikh new year so we were treated to fireworks display above the temple which was cool. The owner is really charming and all of the staff are uber professional. Highly reccomend this place if you want to pay mid range and have peace and comfort (soneeded after a day in dusty but beautiful Punjab).

This hotel was a very pleasant surprise. After some hard traveling in Himalchal Pradesh, I was ready for some comfort. at a reasonable price. CJ International provided that. The rooms are very clean, well-maintained, and comfortable. I chose a room in the category above standard (maybe called a deluxe room; I can't remember), and it was well worth it. Surprisingly the rooms are very quiet even though the hotel is directly across from the Golden Temple. I was able to negotiate the price of the room. The staff was friendly and helpful. One evening the owner himself drove me to a restaurant on the other side of town on his way home. The location cannot be beat - the Golden Temple is directly across the street, which allows you to easily visit it at different times of the day.

as a first time british visitor to amritsar the hotel has a rooftop view of the golden temple which for me is a big bonus. The rooms are very comfortable with very attentive housekeeping and reception staff. They went out of their way to ensure that we had everything we needed and have helped organise taxis and other visits. thank you! and until the next time
