I loved staying at this place. It was very luxurious compared to other places we had stayed for a while.
The place seemed new and sparklingly clean. Our room was large with a huge comfortable bed, flat screen TV with a list of English channels, kettle with tea and biscuits, complimentary toiletries, juice, water, Pepsi, and daily English language local newspaper. There was also a fridge and heater to keep the room warm. Shower was very hot and powerful and was in a separate area within the bathroom with a shower curtain which we hadn't seen in anywhere else we stayed.
Wi-fi was free and was one of the best connections we have come across.
Reception staff were amazing, they were very friendly and courteous and I felt that they really wanted us to enjoy our stay. We were allowed to check in to our room early and an hour later as we had booked a taxi to take us to our next destination at 12pm. We also booked a car to take us to the Wagah border ceremony. All taxis seemed reasonably priced to us although the driver made it clear that he wanted a tip at the end of each journey which I thought was a bit unprofessional. He was also sulky when we ended up giving him a 10% tip presumably as he wanted more.
Location is okay and close to the Crystal restaurant and useful shops selling toiletries as well as ATMs. It is very close to train station - pick up is expensive for such a short journey presumably as they have to pay for parking and wait for you so I would just get a taxi or auto rickshaw myself if I was arriving again by train.
On tripadvisor the map co-ordinates put the hotel very close to the Golden Temple which was one of the reasons we chose it. However, it is much further away and you need to get an auto rickshaw to visit it. We paid between 80-100 IRS for each one way journey to the temple part of town. We visited several times so the journeys added up.
We only stayed one night but should have stayed two. I really wanted to stay for longer and will definitely recommend and stay again if we come back.
