I stayed three days in Grand hotel, after visiting the Golden Temple or just a chai in the train station (just look at people in full swing is an experience) or shopping in the bazaar to reach the hotel's garden and feel peace and tranquility is quite a relaxing . The service is friendly and attentive and the menu excellent.
I met other travelers at the hotel (a couple from New Zealand who had a year and a half traveling around the world, many Indians with their families and some Europeans) and advised me not to go to Varanasi (my next destination) as it was so hot that I did not know where to go. I asked to the owner of the hotel, Sanjay, he was concerned about my trip and we saw several alternatives, at the end decided to go to Srinagar in Kashemir. Sanjay got me the way by car to Jammu, plane tickets and a houseboat in Srinagar. The trip was organized with great care and attention and for a very reasonable price (take this opportunity to recommend Srinagar, the landscape is wonderful and is a very different environment and culture to the rest of India).
I also made a trip to the border with Pakistan (10 USD) to see the changing of the guard, all a show, you laugh and it is really quite a party.
Excellent place to stay, very nice people to meet, good memories to share.
