Hotel is building site, I work for TUI, Lonely Planet rates it 3 stars, I wouldn't rate it 1 star. One of the worst hotels we stayed in India. Everything is overpriced from the cost of the rooms till the cost of a bottle of water. The rooms are dark, smelly and damp. Stay somewhere else.

We were going to be at Amritsar only for a night, so wanted to opt for a not too-expensive, but near to station option.... The Grand fit the bill completely!
it is less than a 5-minute walk from Amritsar Railway Station.... & inspite of being in a crowded area, its amazing how peaceful it is once inside...
a lot of backpackers from abroad used this as base, thanks to the Lonely Planet recommendation :)

- room was good, overlooking the lawn..... no complaints.
-the '24hr unlimited' wi-fi connection was slow, we thought that was a waste of money.
-Mr.Kumar, with whom i was in touch for the booking details, helped us with a car to the Wagah Border - Golden Temple, & McLeodganj the next morning.... at decent rates, can vouch for it..
-nice food at the restaurant, can safely recommend the butter chicken & lager beer :)

will go back? why not!

Though well located and charmingly designed this hotel is terribly dirty. No such thing as housekeeping exists. Dirty pre-used bed linen, cobwebs in all the corners and wardrobes, dirty bathroom with no fittings to speak of, water tumblers caked with muck, furniture never dusted. To top it all some major pipe bursts in this old building have left stains and marks on all the walls of most of the rooms - this however was being rectified and old pipes were being replaced.

Ideally situated opposite the station which after 6 hours journey from Delhi is a boon. The garden courtyard onto which most rooms face prevents noise from station and road. Rather faded and large rat visible in dining area but rooms basic though clean. Good value for a very cheap hotel and made up in convenience for what it lacked in glamour. Arranged car journey to Border Crossing ceremony an advantage too. I would stay here again as so reasonable.

The old famous Grand has seen better days but if you are on a budget its still alright to stay at compared to many places l've stayed in India.
The position is perfect, the foods not bad but the rooms are just average.
The Hotel was probably great 20 years ago but sadly it's on it's way down now but there is a lot worse out there.
l would stay there again for a safe clean place with good well priced food but l would not recommend it as a palace.
