I booked this hotel for one night stay after I read all the reviews for other hotels. And I did not regret it.
We were 3 women travelling to Amritsar . I booked a room for one night stay alone. Although the room was not very spacious, it was comfortable. We had booked a super deluxe room with extra bed. The hotel is right opposite one of the gates of the Golden temple which was very helpful as we could visit the temple in the night and walk back to our room. Jallianwallah bagh was next to this particular gate of the temple and therefore we could walk in to it the next morning. This aspect is not advertised on their website though!
They also provided complimentary breakfast which was ok. For dinner we went to the famous Bharwan Da Dhaba which was again only 10 minutes away. We hired a cylce rickshaw. It was one hell of a ride - we had to hold on to our dear lives!
The service was good and the room servive staff were courteous (though at the time of check in, the front desk staff seemed to be disinterested and rude at times). We had checked in at 2pm and they let us check by the same time the next day. That was very helpful as we had enough time for our shopping :)
The room had a good A/c which is so needed in Amritsar. And the bathroom was fairly spacious. A double room should be ideally good for a couple.
I would definitely recommend this hotel for pepple visiting Amritsar mainly for Golden Temple, Jallainwallah Bagh and ofcourse loads of shopping. (the nearby shopping area was very good for juttis, salwars, papads, pickles etc)
