HOTEL AKAAL RESIDENCY
Ranked #3 of 143 Amritsar B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 15, 2013

Hotel Akal Residency is the best hotel to stay in Amrisar. It's just 5 steps away from the golden temple. Hotel service is excellent. We reached there at 2 AM (midnight) but still we got good service from hotel staff. Morning breakfast was also good. Room was also good. They provide you room heater free of cost, and heaters are of double coils. So it maintains warmness in the room.

So I would suggest you please go for this hotel.

Akaal Residency’s location is ideal for those wishing a short .4 km walk to the Golden Temple.

Room 104 was small, clean, with basic décor and, uncomfortably from a safety perspective, no window. It held a short length, queen width bed with crisp white linens, wardrobe with 4 hangers, bar fridge, luggage bench, small wall desk with mirror, a slatted chair, air conditioning and flat screen tv; no wifi. The clean bathroom featured western toilet and sizable shower with curtain. The room’s individual hot water tank guaranteed limited hot water. No toilet paper, no soap.

Bend low if you are of average height or taller entering the breakfast room. Our advice is don’t bother with the breakfast room at all and seek meals outside this hotel. Your wait will be shorter, the food will be better, the utensils cleaner and the service, if but mediocre, will top Akaal’s. When asked for feedback, we shared our findings (including the actual dirty cutlery) with the owner/manager but she appeared to be in a deep state of denial.

If you plan to stay only one or two nights, don’t mind a windowless room and refrain from eating here, we can recommend this establishment.

Room Tip: Rooms we had did not have windows. Ask when booking so you are aware.

The Akkal Residency is literally located around two corners of the Golden Temple. It's a five minute walk. That's the unbeatable plus of this hotel. So it's very easy to walk to the temple at different times of the day. That's a great advantage against many other hotels somewhere in Amritsar. Rooms are basic (not very big, limited day light etc.), even the best category we booked (which dont' cost much more), but very clean, water was hot etc. You don't need more because You are here for sightseeing. So beside location the very good relation between price and what You get is the second plus of the Akall.
Breakfast - You order via phone to somewhere, choose one dish from the menu - is very simple, took some time to be on the desk. That's no plus. Not everybody of the friendy staff speaks good English.
And to get to the Akaal by car is a little adventure. Very narrow street, lot of turns etc.

The selling point for this hotel is its location within a three minute walk to the Golden Temple. We stayed in a superior room and it was quite simple with the basic necessities but really cold in late December. Ask for more blankets and bring warm pajamas. The food was delicious - try the gobi paratha for breakfast. Friendly staff that politely responded to requests and questions. Our driver was unable to take us directly to the hotel due to traffic restrictions on the street. We had to haul our luggage by rickshaw from a parking garage a half mile away at night - rough start to our stay at the Hotel Akaal Residency.

I used this word Best for hotel Akaal , becz i feel Best is a word suitable for Best Hotel; Best Location; Owners; Staff; emanates ; culture;Food;Support..etc..etc. I stayed in this hotel on 5-6-7 th dec and believe me i could not get a better option than this. Though i booked this hotel well before time but i had ample of time comparing this hotel just for my knowledge. I was on business meeting so i opted some place near to my work place. Extremely Nice down to earth owners Mr Sethi's (son and father) and very charming decent and polite Mrs Aman sethi full of knowledge , smiling face and great support. Clean rooms; great food, wi-fi, complimentary welcome drink and basket i relished it. Overall i must say if u want to be at home away from your home it is the best place. I wish to visit again and again .....Golden Temple is stone throw distance from this hotel, one can hear holy shabad's all day in this hotel...I would say This Place Have Respect

Room Tip: Just Go For It u wont regret

The biggest plus is that this hotel is truly walking distance from the Golden Temple. Jallianwala Bagh is another short walk away. The market is also nearby. This hotel is impossible to find if you are driving there, so please call them so that they send somebody to the main road to guide you. The rooms are clean and cozy, with complimentary snacks, and a hot water geyser. One problem we faced was that both nights, other guests across the hall talked rather loudly until about midnight. The service provided was good, from the front desk to the room attendants. Parking is provided right in the front. We ate all meals outside the hotel. The next time I go to Amritsar, I am definitely going to stay at this place.

Room Tip: Executive rooms are a good deal.
