Only about 3-5 min drive from Amritsar train station. Very friendly, polite and accommodating staff. The rooms were large, bright and clean. The breakfast choice was excellent, from hot prepared dosa's, puris, idlis and omlettes to cold continental selections. Our son fell ill during our stay in Amritsar and the staff very helpfully prepared a special mild khichdi (mild rice) for him, they also arranged for their car to take us to the hospital.
Location was excellent as only 15min rickshaw ride and then short walk to the Golden Temple as cars/rickshaws not allowed beyond a certain point. We paid approx Rs.80-100 for 3 adults one-way after bartering the price. The hotel does offer a car for Rs.800 that drops you and waits to bring you back.
Be sure to visit Golden Temple by day and by night if you can as both experiences are different.
Wagah (Attari) Border was 30km away (about 40mins drive) and well worth a visit, and its free! Actual ceremony started at 5pm but the lead up music and entertainment started at 4pm so get there in good time to get good seats! Apparently if you have a foreign passport and show it you can get priority seats. Video cameras not allowed but cameras are.
