“DECENT HOTEL”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

Arrived Amritsar on 9.8.13 and checked into the hotel which was prebooked and stayed 1 night.The rooms are large and clean with A/C.The location is within a stone throw from the Golden Temple. The hotel provides you with 2 mineral water bottles,free titbits and also can mix your hot beverages.Amritsar and whole of Punjab you cannot smoke cigarettes but can smoke ' beedi '.But what I dont understand is that both emits smoke,I have to play hide and seek with the locals when smoking.I was caught by a Sadarji on the same night at about 11pm smoking cigarette in front of the hotel in a dark alley. He was making hell of noise and I threw the cigarette in the drain and walked into the hotel,what a joke! Anyway, I have no bad remarks about this hotel, you will enjoy it.You can hire a shared taxi from here to Durga Temple and Wagah for the border march.

Room Tip: choose rooms on higher floor,less noisy

Since our trip was suddenly planned, we were looking for a decent hotel as a walkin customer and were lucky enough to find this hotel..we realised later only that this hotel has been ranked as no. 1 in B&B category and also realised why this is being No. 1...Location of the hotel is perfect...very near to Golden temple ..less than two minutes walking..and that too in backside of temple which is less crowded giving you access to temple peacefully. ..Hotel is nicely maintained and have excellent interior in its category...room are clean and are with decent toileteries which you generally do not find in these rates...Hotel staff is polite and very helpful..only limitation is that hotel does not have its own restaurent but they have a big menu and they arrange the same from somewhere outside..( This is mention on Menu card itself) but in any case food served is good and nicely prepared...best part of the hotel is hotel staff and owner are humble enough to recognise immediately if something goes wrong and try their best to get it correct very pleaseantly instead of just getting away from it..thus to say it was a pleaseant and memorable experience...

Room Tip: Take out some time to sit with owner of the hotel in evening and get to know some interesting facts...

This is the perfect place to stay in Amritsar if you want a peaceful calm ordered environment 5 minutes from the Golden Temple so that you can pop in to experience the temple at different times of day or night, with friendly helpful staff who arranged a very well priced excellent driving trip to local sights of Wagah border, Ram Tirath, and the unmissable puyja mata lai Devi temple? Also well placed from a lovely low pressure market.

My wife and I spent two nights and three days in this hotel during our trip to Amritsar in April. Outstanding service, very courteous staff (Special thanks to Seema), the owner of the property was around for a nice chat and gave us a good insight about Amritsar and its glorious history. Hotel's location is a great plus, a real short walk to several must visit spots like the Golden Temple, Jallianwalla Bhag, etc. Homely food made to order, good restaurants in the vicinity of the hotel. Overall, great value for money, could not have asked for more!

Room Tip: All rooms are good, but ask for the ones at the end of the corridor, as they have two windows and he...

Very clean, safe, excellent value hotel, near the Golden Temple. Very helpful staff. Mr. Daniel was very helpful. Stayed in Hotel Akaal Residency, due to prior high ratings at Tripadvisor. The hotel lives up to its rating. Very close walking distance to the Golden Temple. Took a tuk-tuk from the train station to the hotel. And was able to arrange transportation on the way back to the train station. Was able to arrange other excursions via the hotel receptionist, ordered food etc. Thanks again for the excellent service.

Location: it is only 2 minutes from the Golden Temple but situated on a relatively quiet street. I appreciate it might be difficult to find, but the hotel organised a taxi to collect us up from the airport as they will for you too at a competitive rate, if you request. Our flight was delayed by 2 hours, yet the rate was the same and our driver patient, so I would definitely recommend this option for those that fly to Amritsar.

Room: We had a delux room. It was clean and comfortable with A/C. There were complimentary coffee making facilities, bottled water and a few snacks which was a nice touch. There was also a fridge with additional chocolate treats and fizzy drinks at an extra cost, if you so wished. The bathroom was basic, but clean with hot water and cleaning products. We too had a TV, but channels were all in Hindi, so unless you speak it, perhaps not worth the upgrade.

Food & Service: we arrived in low season and the hotel are taking this opportunity to train new staff. For which, I think it unfair to judge as inevitably, service was a little slower and our expectations higher than the staff are yet able to deliver. I'm sure in time, service, standards and food will improve as the staff better grasp English and familiarise themselves with typical guest expectations. Their willing to help and wanting to please, was however, unquestionable. However, contrary to this as a general rule, I clumsily left my mobile phone behind. The manager was quick to call my onward guesthouse and organised for one of the team to escort my phone, in rickshaw back to me almost immediately, for this I am hugely grateful.

Would gladly recommend this well located option to future Golden Temple seekers.

Room Tip: Back of hotel, off the road is peaceful.
