It was a short trip to amritsar for a visit to the golden temple, jalianwalah bagh and wagah border. i had book 2 deluxe rooms in the hotel and as expected the hotel was full on the weekend. this helped us get an upgrade to a dimension suite in exchange of one of the deluxe room and it was simply awesome. we stayed at the 3rd floor and the rooms were just awesome. we had dinner at the hotel and the biryani, fish tikka and methi malai murg was to die for. the breakfast (included in the package) was elaborate and lived upto our expectation. they even allowed us for a late checkout on one of the rooms as we were late coming back from the temple and it helped a lot. the only issue was with a confusion on having a person per room instead of 2, which happened when i booked the rooms on agoda. agoda has changed there website and they have stupid icons which describe the number of people per room and i missed that. the hotel should have informed about this when i was checking in, instead of adding charges for 2 extra beds in the bill. though the manager i guess named "abhishek" helped us in getting out of that sticky situation and i payed the difference directly to agoda. overall a great experience..
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Please ensure that you do not visit the temple on a Sunday as it would be impossible for you to enter the Shrine due to the humongous crowd. For Wagah border, ensure you are on the VIP list through some source in the millitary or you would not be able to enter the Arena. For foreign travelers, please carry your passport to Wagah Border for a smooth and a free entry to the VIP section of the Arena.
