MK Hotel Amristar
Ranked #30 of 112 Hotels in Amritsar
Reviewed April 1, 2008

Luckily, we didn't see any bugs like another recent reviewer. Instead, my husband and I found the place to be a welcome relief in Amritsar. We stayed a total of 3 nights in two different rooms with 2 nights in the beginning of a week, and one night at the end of the week.

The rooms were both large. Nice sitting area. Coffee maker. Hairdryer. Clean bathrooms. Hot water was no problem. Room service was also good. The staff was also very friendly and helpful. The AC was wonderful.

Could the rooms have been cleaner for what the place bills itself out as? Yes. But that's true of most of India.

Comparing to other hotels we stayed in during our trip through India, it was a good value for the money. That can't be said about a lot of hotels in India it seems, which advertise as being much better and charge you for that, but turn out to be really nothing more than a 2*.

Bottom line: Frankly, unless I was going for work and my employer was paying the bill for a 4* or a 5*, I think the MK is a perfectly respectable option for a tourist who wants some Western comforts.

Having been to Amritsar a couple of times on business, Amritsar is crying out for a 5* hotel, or even 4* such as Hyatt, Taj, Marriott or something.

MK Hotel is the best of a very bad bunch. Room had bugs (I asked for bug spray and they brough air freshner) and cockroaches gallore in the bathroom.

I cant recommend this hotel, but, if you have to stay in Amritsar (and dont fancy crossing the Pakistani border to the wonderful PC Hotel in Lahore) MK is your best bet.

Amritsar is not known for its high end hotels so the MK probably is the best on offer. The room was large and comfortable, if the bathroom perhaps was ready to be refurbished. But perfectly acceptable and beautifully clean with a good powerful shower.
The breakfast was probably not the best in town, but again serviceable with coffee and toast as bottom line if the buffet hot food is not to your taste. Limited but adequate.
The reception desk is businesslike but don't expect gushing welcomes but efficient enough.
I would stay in this hotel again, as it is comfortable, clean and very pleasant.

As soon as we arrived at the hotel we were met up with a staff member at the front desk who sat my elderly parents down while they took care of the checking in formalities. I thought that was very kind as my parents were quite tired from the trip to Amritsar.

Met the manager Jasdev Singh, who was amazing the way he operated as he was so involved in almost all the departments. Meeting guest upon arrival/departure, going round the banquet hall to ensure all was in order, making sure the internet was functioning well and going round the F&B outlets to speak to guest and ensuring they were enjoying their stay. A gentleman who was so involved in making sure his guest were comfortable........phew got tired just watching him. Definitely an asset to the hotel.

Location of the hotel is also very cosmopolitan with great spas and bookshops around the area. Just make sure that if you are going to the town area you get the doorman to arrange the transport, picking up the transportation from the outside can be quite expensive.

Would recommend this hotel to anyone based on the high service levels. Kudos to the manager and his staff.......

I stayed at MK from 1st of Jan 2006 to 4th of Jan 2006. Although it has been more than a year, I recorded my trip in diary. So I have no problem for recalling my experience. Internet booking rate for each night was US$ 50. It was 25 mins drive from Amritsar airport. Opposite of Kasala Boy school and close to Pizza Hut. After checking in at 6pm, I had my first meal at Pizza Hut. Taste were very different from Syd.

Staff are well organized and well dressed. Carpet was green color and writing table provided in the room. The room was warm at night however no fresh air. I can use the Internet at 'S" floor business room. Downside was sharing PC with accounting staff. There were no separate PCs for guests when I was here. Jan is coolest month in Amritsar. I did not see anyone swimming in the swimming pool.

Breakfast were served in the green room beside the lobby. Waiting staff paid the great attention for everyone needs. Although Indian food were OK, continental were not my standard. When I was there, I used the room service with ordering Sizuan fried rice once. Rice was Basmatic indian rice. It was pretty hot and the whole night I could not sleep because I got a stomach problem.

I have to admit that It was my fault for ordering something hot and spicy food. I also had some snack and tea from street vendor before. For non locals need to research the food hygine standard and ingredients. Otherwise, they may get bad experience like me. This hotel location is convenient for visiting golden temple and Jalianwala Bagh.
