Radisson Blu Hotel Amritsar
Ranked #8 of 100 Hotels in Amritsar
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

I'm the kind that starts off with the negatives n then cushions the blow with the positives.
Not that good:
1) I stayed at the Radisson blu for 2 days in the end of august. I guess there was renovation/repairs going on hence there was too much noise of hammering/drilling going on. This went on from 8 am till the evening! Was too much of a disturbance.
2) I can't say whether it's a positive or a negative but the location of the hotel is far from the main city. We had visited amritsar for sightseeing and hence it took us atleast 30-45 mins to get to places like the golden temple.
3) Since we had to check out very early in the morning and had to travel thereafter, we requested at their 24hr restaurant, if they could pack us breakfast, which they did, but they had not given us wat they said they would. We were left with only 2 sandwiches for a group of 4!
3) The minibar was understocked n price was a tad high. Come on, you guys are the Radisson! You sure can afford to stock a few complimentary cookies to go with tea and coffee
The good and the great:
1) The rooms were simply great! With a very comfortable bed, study desk, cupboards, lockers, great bathroom with bathtub.
2) The service was great, and all the staff members were courteous. Even though we had not reserved a table for dinner, we had one arranged in minutes.
The person who waited on us at the restaurant, a tall fair bald man( very sorry, didn't notice his name! ) was very helpful and courteous!
3) THE FOOD! We had both, the dinner and the breakfast buffet, which were amazing! The chicken tikka starter and the Dal makhani were the best I've ever had.I had a craving for pancakes that day, and they served me hot pancakes even though I did not see them on the menu!

Overall I had a pleasant stay, barring the few disappointments.

The Radisson Blu at Amritsar is a comfortable modern stay at Amritsar...

We were a group of 4 girls traveling across the north of India and we chose the Radisson at Amritsar. WE were right about the fact that the hotel didnt seem at all threatening - we felt safe and welcome.

The rooms are clean and the beds comfortable... in fact the staff was patient and even arranged for a connecting double room for us... made the trip very enjoyable... :)
They also allowed for a (very) late check out since we were delayed at the Golden Temple...

The breakfast buffet was good too - the fresh puris and kulchas with the amritsari chole and aloo sabzi completely won me over - plus they stocked the famous Verka brand of curd :) :)
These items were the stars on the buffet - the regular fare i didnt even look at!

Over all an experience that made me want to go back and stay another weekend

Room Tip: If you are a family of 4 then ask in advance for 2 double rooms with a connecting door - that really...

Overall, a modern and comfortable retreat from the heat in a stones throw of the airport. As part of a global chain, it is excellently managed and throws shabby local Amritsar competitors out of the water. What it inevitably lacks in heritage and charm, it makes up for in comfort, convenience and service. Definitely worth splashing out on a night here to recharge the batteries and catch an early flight.

Room: We were given a free upgrade and enjoyed a spacious suite, bathroom and view of the countryside. We had 2 plasma TVs, wifi, shower and bath tub. Mini bar was a little understocked and overpriced (15 rupee snicker bar cost 150rupees plus tax - should stock homebaked treats) but we did have own own tea making facilities and complimentary water.

Restaurant: excellent selection of fresh produce at both restaurants and the breakfast buffet, was outstanding. Staff are really attentive and the grill chefs go to every effort to create a bespoke order on request. My husband actually became very ill during our stay here (we're unsure of the exact cause, but seemed to be food related). We didn't accuse the hotel as these things are impossible to deermine, but they were gracious and offered to prepare a complimentary snack to help with the sickness, which was hugely appreciated.

Swimming pool: well maintained rooftop pool which catches the sun before 3pm at this time of year, before fading off behind the building. We were well looked after, with fresh towels and upon request, my lounger was moved into a more discrete position after catching prying eyes of other male guests. Would advise other Western ladies to keep sarongs handy even for the more liberal rules of the poolside in this part of the world.

Slight disappointments:
*Unfortunately the spa is still in construction, which was a draw to the hotel so that was a shame.
*The airport shuttle, contrary to other reviews (perhaps corporates) was not complimentary. After tax, it cost us 400 rupees, was 20 minutes late and took only 4 minutes to reach.

Room Tip: Request an upgrade: you may get a suite with a view. Request a view, opposite of the airport.

I just stayed at the Radisson Blu at Amritsar and found it to be an excellent hotel. The rooms are well done and the service is impeccable. The most impressive part was the extremely high level of efficiency of the staff at all levels. The cuisine was most satisfying, the ambience wonderful and the entire stay a very pleasurable experience. The location is indeed very wonderful being placed withing a couple of minutes of the airport. I would recommend Radisson Blu as the hotel of choice for any stay in Amrtisar.

If you are looking for a team to make your stay, this Radisson is the place to stay. Everything from the pick up to the drop off went flawless. The driver during our tour of the city and Golden Temple was very knowledgeable. He also escorted us to the border for the evening ceremony. The buffet dinners and breakfast were superb and the staff were excellent and well trained to handle international travellers. Five out of five.

This place is just superb with great hospitality from the staff and the facilities make it one of the best hotels in Punjab.

We stayed there for one night during our visit to Amritsar in August, as our plane arrived early on Wednesday morning they allowed early checkin which allowed my children to rest after the early star in Delhi.

The breakfast spread was out of this world highly recommended and we even had an evening meal there which was of a high standard - a place we will definitely come back to when in Amristar.
