Hotel Samrat
Ranked #11 of 40 Hotels in Ludhiana
Reviewed February 4, 2014

I stayed in the Super Deluxe room (the best one they had). Rooms are clean. Bathroom/Toilet/Washroom is a bit small. The owner is very helpful. No Kitchen. It is near the station and on a busy market road. The room doors are not quite sound proof so one could hear noises from the outside (our room was next to the reception and we could hear everything going on there). Overall it is a good economical budget hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms away from the reception. Have option for split and combined beds. Charges for water...

I planned stay in Hotel Samrat for 2 days and 2 days in a fully furnished Govt guest house on an official visit in Ludhiana. However, I extended my stay 2 more days in the same hotel, due to the excellent service quality, which was similar to a home stay, cleanliness, significant location of the hotel for shopping, ATM, transport facility, tariff, etc. Since, the lodge is personally taken care of father-son-respectable senior attendant; the service quality was so excellent that every customer is taken care individually and helping the best way possible. Since, I am new to cold winter region, he reminded to take outer jacket, provided slipper to use in the room, arranged call taxi and more importantly, advised me to approach airlines to make alternate arrangement, as they cancelled flight in the final moments; airline arranged car to send me to Amristar to take Delhi flight. Although, in house restaurant not available, food and tea are arranged any time at the lowest cost. Free WiFi and all the television channels are made available and more ethical in business that given discount, when the room heater in not used. The owner maintained the relationship like brother that even updated my Galaxy S3 and taught me to use certain useful applications. I strongly recommend to everyone who search accommodation at Ludhiana, especially women, foreigners, families, etc. Unmatched service and price with a satisfaction of staying in our brother’s house. Even, contacted after checking out to know that I have taken the flight at Amristar. Thanks Samrat, please keep up the same quality of customized service and customer will not attempt other hotel in the next visit!

Room Tip: Deluxe AC is comfortable

I got trap with the 5 star rating reviews from the others. There is absolutely nothing any facility which can be compare to 5 star facility. I took the Deluxe room and at first I saw there is missing some basic amenities like no drinking water, no hand towel, missing kettle for tea or coffee and even no toilet roll in the washroom. Although I got later most of these on request.
I stayed here in last week of December and room was very cold and needed worm jacket even in the room hot air blower was provided later on request.
Internet was OK

It is a small hotel in civil lines with market located nearby.The owner of this hotel is cooperative and tries to assist you in everything.The rooms are above average,but the bathrooms need an upgrade. Wifi works very fast and but there is no in house restaurant though you are provided with a menu from which you can order and it will be delivered in your room.Staff is a problem,I did not see any hotel staff apart from the owner ,it seems most of the staff is part time.It is located close to the railway station and local market is very close which is definitely a plus point.

Overall ,it seemed to be a homely hotel with few rooms,few staff ,but an honest effort to assist you in everything they can.It can be considered for short official trips .

Room Tip: super deluxe rooms not facing the road are good as there is less of traffic disturbance.

We stayed at Hotel Samrat during a business road trip across India. Two things were important: access to the highway and wifi internet in the room.

PROS
- Internet here clocked 4MBPS download speeds on speedtest.net.
- Owner pinged us on whatsapp as soon as we called him for rates and availability, so he could guide us to the hotel.
- Reliance Fresh, the grocery store, is right next door.
- Rooms for Rs. 1100/night were large and comfy. The owner himself suggested rooms that are closer to the wifi router

CONS
- Nothing really, for Rs. 1100.
- Dont come here if you are looking for stuff like gyms or in-house restaurants.

I had an excellent experience at this hotel. I am western woman traveling alone in India and as such it can be difficult to move around. The owner kindly recieved me at the train station (at no additional cost) and saw to it that all of my needs were provided for, including a very nice, well stoked supermarket directly downstairs.
The air conditioning, wi-fi and cable were excellent. The hotel also provided a phone where I was able to call internationally at a very good rate.The room was very clean and reasonably priced.
Even after I have left this hotel it continues to be a resource for me and the owner continues to assist me with my needs like booking onward travel.
I would certainly recommend this place to any traveler, especially lost foreigners.

Room Tip: I chose a delux room because I was looking for some comfort however I feel like even the low budget...

hotel samrat in ludhianna is located about 2km from railway station easily accessable by shared auto or cycle rikshaw or walk.(single auto/taxis are also available but may be costly).
If from railway station, shared autos are available from the clock tower(150m from Station) at 10rs/person
its typically an old hotel.The semi deluxe room is bath attached with a/c & tv. the two coats are not so broad but the bed sheet pilow covers were all clean. the bathroom(its floor,wall,closet,bucket,washbasin) was also clean.the mosaic floor of the room and the crevaces of the cot,tv,shelf had some dust accumulated though.
there were also items like a double sofa, chair, mirrors, hangers.soap, bath towel, kinley water will be provided on demand.
the only difference between this room and a deluxe room is that the latter appears brand new with an lcd tv, newer a/c, new floor tyling, lighting, newer pipes and shower and also a king size bed.
But it has no attached restaurant. parcel food wil be provided for extra money, on demand.
there are also some small dhabas nearby and also a reliance fresh stall directly below the hotel

Room Tip: rooms facing away from the main road may be quieter
