We booked Grand Hotel after a lot of research online and especially after reading mixed reviews on bookings and trip advisor.
Really it’s just 5mins walking distance from Amritsar station. With the garden attached it gives a very comfortable feeling when you stay. Rooms were ok as it was an old hotel. Owner Sanjay(firstname.lastname@example.org) was in touch with me through emails for all my queries regarding room selection and as per my request he had kept 2 rooms separately (one on ground floor and the other on first floor). He was even too active in the daily matters of the hotel.The daily trip provided by hotel to Wagha Border, Kali Matha temple and Golden Temple was worth the value. It costs 580INR per person for the trip which leaves daily at 3.00pm from the hotel. Around the hotel there are lot of authentic paratha and lassi serving restraunts. Amritsar as such a very nice and peaceful city. One must spend more time in the Golden temple to the peaceful environment. Staff was very nice of the hotel. Please do have amazing parathas at Kesar da Dhaba in Shastri market which every cycle rickshaw person will know. Tandoor chicken lollipop and chawla special creamy chicken at Chawla restraunt at Lawrence road is just too good. Surjit chicken on the same road is a well known place to have, known as it is expensive but due to time constraint we couldn’t manage to be there. Do go to Baba Deepjeet Singh Ji ka Gurudwara, which is again a peaceful place to pray. You can do some shopping in the old Amritsar. Not to forget as we were shopping we ended up in a hand bag shop (Riddhi Selection – from Grand on the way to Shastri market) and the shop owner was too friendly to talk to us and we were treated like guests. When I went to pay for what I purchased he even refused to take money and trust me this is the first time in my life it happened. We paid him the money finally and he was too helpful to direct us to the Gurudwara and for the rest of the local shopping. On our daily travel we even met a good rickshaw driver called Sanju (91-8568876379) who charged us 150 INR to go to airport from Grand. You can contact him for any kind of travel in Amritsar, as such the cycle rickshaws around are really cheap to commute.
