HOTEL AKAAL RESIDENCY

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 22, 2012

I was travelling to Amritsar for the first time with four of my friends , unfortunately we didn't booked any hotel before hand and I and my friends going through various sites and searching for the hotels , luckily we got Akaal Residency's number . We immediately got our room booked and the lady staff on the phone was so polite and humble that she understood our situation and reserved a room for the us immediately and she herself has arranged for a vehicle to pickup us from Amritsar Station as we were new to Amritsar. Even next day they have arranged a vehicle for the sightseeing with very much reasonable rates. Very impressive thing was that we had a train in morning at 5.30 to Delhi and they have arranged a vehicle for station drop and the staff in the night shift was following up with the driver to come on time so that we would not be late for the train. Very much dedicated and very helpful. In all experience was very very good , enjoyed the stay in Akaal Hotel Amritsar

Though this hotel is in a 5 feet width lane, it deserves full credit for its facility, location, cleanliness and staff courtesy. all types of transport are either at the hotel entrance or just a shout away. Stayed in a Super Deluxe room for a thrill price. For a small extra sum, they arranged airport pick up as well. Small and cozy rooms. amazing internet speed and tasty breakfast. they just don't reveal from where they get the breakfast paranthas :) . 3 mins walk to Golden temple, Jallianwala Bagh. Hotel arranged a very dependable transport to Beas and Wagah border. We stayed during peak winter (-1 / 0 deg temperature) and hot water was not working properly. The front desk was so sorry about it that we got embarrassed of raising it with them ! This hotel is certainly a benchmark for other hotels. Will stay here during next visit as well.

I just stayed in Akaal Residency for several days with a friend. The people there were extremely helpful and nice, the rooms were spotless, the prices were very reasonable, and the location was unbeatable (an easy walking distance to the Golden Temple). The place was quiet, yet central, so getting anywhere was not a problem. Unlike in many hotels the people in Akaal Residency did their best to suggest cheaper (though equally good) options to whatever we required (transportation, dining, shopping). They were also, very delicately and unobtrusively, taking responsibility for our safety when we went out at night (always offering to arrange transportation with people they knew - and no, it was never more expensive than if we made the arrangements ourselves - in fact it was cheaper). Places such as Akaal Residency are the reason I usually prefer to stay in guesthouses rather than in a large hotel.

Hotel Akaal Residency is in a nice, quiet location back from any main streets, yet close enough to the Golden Temple and the main streets where you can choose from many restaurants and cafes. We stayed in an executive room and were given a complimentary basket of chips and biscuits and a couple of bottles of water each day. The room and bathroom was really clean with hot showers. A real highlight of our stay was the warm, friendly staff who were happy to help whenever they could. It was probably a little pricey compared to other budget accommodation around, but it was a really comfortable three-night stay for us.

I am a UK resident and was planning to visit India with a 1 day trip for Amritsar with my family (2 small children) and parents. I looked up the hotel details over the internet and decided to call them up to enquire regarding accomodation. I got a call back from the hotel providing me all the details required and I could book the two executive rooms on the phone. I got an email confirmation as well. The hotel staff were also very helpful in arranging a large car to pick us up from the railway station when we arrived. In the interest of time we proceeded straight to Wagah border and got there just in time to see the beating retreat ceremony. The driver then took us to the famous Bharawan Da Dhaba for some yummy dinner. We then visited the Golden temple in the night and the next day morning. The accomodations were very comfortable and the complimentary herbal tea was refreshing. Kids had a good time playing in the kids area. We had yummy Amritsari Kulchas at the hotel for breakfast before setting off for Jallianwala Bagh. We then returned back via train to Delhi. The hotel owner, Mr Sethi was very helpful in pointing us to local shops providing specialist produce and gave helpful directions to see Amritsar in the best possible manner in the short time we had. A nice hotel ideal for both families and singles or couples and located 5 mins from Golden Temple. Thoroughly recommended!

We arrived very early and to our surprise, they allowed us to take our room.  We were very impressed by the hotel's design and the rooms were beautiful.  The bathrooms were clean and the showers were hot!

Mr. Prabhjot Singh Sethi, the owner of the hotel came around to meet us personally.  He and his team of excellent service staff helped us with all of our arrangements including consulting a pharmacist, booking excursions and booking our train tickets. I highly recommend you check out the border closing ceremonies at the Indian/Pakistani border too while there!

After travelling around India for the past few weeks, this hotel was an oasis. If you need a rest, this is the place.  There is a reason why this place is rated #1, it simply is.

Located a very short distance from the Golden Temple, the Hotel Akaal Residency met and exceeded our expectations. The owners of the hotel and all their staff went out of their way to welcome us and make our stay a memorable one. Complimentary water and snacks each evening, plentiful, hearty and tasty breakfasts, and helpful tips on the tourist sites were provided daily and we are glad we spent 4 nights.

But what really stood out for us was the husband and wife tandem who own and manage the Akaal. They were so proud of their city and nearby Temple and wanted us to experience a large helping of their joy. When a cooking lesson could not be found, Aman spent all afternoon and into the evening teaching us how to cook Punjabi cuisine. On another occasion her husband had a parade stop outside the Akaal so we could see a demonstration of Sikh martial arts.

The room was clean, the hot water on demand and it was super quiet despite its proximity to the Golden Temple. The Akaal has been a family property and hotel for many years and judging by our stay they will continue to provide exceptional hospitality for years to come. Top marks
