“Amritsar Visit 16-19 July 2013”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

Hotel is good in sense of facility ,service . Very near to Darbar Shahib, good location. Service desk, reception are very polite and cooperative, specially the Hotel MD Mr. P.S Sethi was also very helping regarding details at Amritsar. Non availability of restaurant in hotel is bit dis-advantage but they arrange food on demand.Overall nice for family and staying near to Darbar Shahib.No swimimg pool and fitness centre.Location in a congested lane is a disadvantage..little away from good and famous eateries of Amritsar

I went to Amritsar for the first time to visit the Golden temple with my family. I booked Akaal residency after looking up reviews online, and I was not disappointed! The rooms though small, are very clean and hygienic. Being summer, the staff took care to switch on the Air-conditions to our room beforehand, so that the room was pleasantly cool by the time we arrived. A complimentary basket with snacks, complimentary tea coffee sachets with an electric kettle in the room were also provided. The bathroom was clean and well equipped with toiletries and towels. The staff was eager to provide us with information on shopping, good restaurants to eat (you can also order in if you want), and places to visit. They were very courteous and accommodating in not charging us extra for using the rooms for a couple of hours more after check out time since our flight was late afternoon. All in all, a very pleasant experience staying at this hotel. I would definitely go back to the same hotel if I happen to visit amritsar again. The willingness of the staff to help and the efforts put in by the management are very impressive.
The hotel also provides with an excellent pick up and taxi service to and fro from the airport, and to other places you might want to visit, if you are not into sharing rickshaws for the border and other places.
PS- The hotel is at an excellent location. It is literally within a 2 min walking distance to the Golden Temple, and a short walk to Jallian wala bagh.

I stayed at Akaal residency for 4 nights during Diwali 2012. I am a single female traveller and my main purpose of visiting Antistar was to spend Diwali at the Golden temple and hotel Akaal residency was the perfect choice. It is just two minutes walk to Darbaar sahib and has all the facilities that u need. It's not a luxury hotel but is very clean and comfortable. I would definitely stay there again because of the location and great hospitality.

Hotel is situated very near to golden temple as well as very near from railway or bus stand. We arrived in the morning to the hotel and they told that as check-in time is 12 noon, we will have to pay extra for early check-in and to my surprise they charged almost full day charge!!

This hotel is a great find in Amritsar. Near to the temple, clean, wifi, good food and arranges tours to the border. Very helpful staff. I felt cared for and safe as a single woman traveler. It's also very affordable.

We had a short stay here - arrived late in night and left next day afternoon.
But we found this place really nice and comfortable.
Its location is a plus as well as it is just 2 minutes walk away from Golden Temple.

The owners/staff were very helpful and professional as well.
I would recommend this place to other travellers.

this hotel was recommended by a colleague and as always i searched for it on trip advisor. to my surprise it was ranked 1st under b&b. I called the hotel & got to speak with the owner Mr. Prabhjeet whose words assured that this should be our place of stay.

they sent their auto for pick and drop to railway station for just Rs.150 and when we reached at 11 pm we were welcomed with a smile and shown our executive room which was fully furnished with lcd, fridge, ac, dresser and comfortable beds. the room had clean spacious bathroom, toiletries and ample hot and clod water. in morning we wanted to go to golden temple for the opening ceremony and it was located at 2 mins walk from the hotel. so we visited it 4 times in 2 days.

the food ordered was reasonable in ample quantity and tasty.
the complementary snacks offered were fresh and ample.
the room service was prompt and catered to whatever we asked for with a smile.

if you are new to amritsar, the receptionists and the owner will accurately guide you if u want to eat outside at a good dhaba, they will suggest modes of transport and places to visit. the hotel is close to all the locations and there is a cheap suits market in the next lane where we shopped in bulk.

overall it is a value for money hotel which solves its purpose by being close to golden temple and hall gate market jaliawala bagh 3 other gurudwaras etc.

Room Tip: the rooms have no balcony just shafts outside windows so all executive rooms are equal.
