The Grand is located very conveniently for the railway station: about two minutes' walk. It's not the most picturesque area: most of Amritsar, apart from the Golden Temple, is pretty ugly, and this seemed to be in the auto / mechanic district. The Rough Guide criticises it for "only having inward-facing rooms" although that's a plus point for me: outside is not nice, but the Grand's central courtyard is a pleasant, quiet green space. Staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are basic, clean and comfortable, though more a budget standard at a lower-mid-range price, so not great value. It's not very close to the Golden Temple, but easy to get an autorickshaw there. The hotel also organise a combined trip: Mata Temple, Wagah border ceremony, and Golden Temple at night, which is recommended. Overall, a comfortable stay in a very convenient location.
