“Nice but not praise worthy”
Reviewed April 4, 2014

I think I may have come here with expectations slightly too high as I felt overall it was an OK hotel but nothing to rave about. The sheets were clean, both the TV and fan above the bed worked. The shower was pretty good for a lower star hotel and the room was clean.
It's about 20-30 mins walk to the Temple. There are some hawker markets about 2 mins walk down from the hotel which are a great place to eat at night. Overall for a 2 star hotel, it was OK and reasonable value for money.

But...

The bed was solid rock hard. In all the years I've travelled in India I am still at a loss as to why Indian hotels, catering to Westerners, do not provide slightly softer beds. The pillows also were very hard and uncomfortable.
Staff were OK, neither overly helpful or unhelpful. They rarely smiled though and I often felt I was an imposition with basic questions on how to get to the Golden Temple, booking a tour to Wagah Border or even asking where I could eat other than the adjoining restaurant.
The fridge was turned off and couldn't be switched on which was a bit strange; the noise from doors slamming and people in the hallway was really loud and I managed to get stuck in the lift on the 5th Floor when it died though admittedly only for 20 seconds.

Location of hotel is good. Not very far from Golden Temple. Rooms and toilets are clean and have basic amenities. Staff are cooperative and quick in responding. Food quality is also fairly good. A fairly good stay at this budget.

Shiraz Regency is conveniently located near the train station and just a short ride away from the Golden Temple, though not particularly close. The hotel is very reasonably priced and provides good value for money. We had a pleasant experience: the room and bathroom were clean, the staff were always helpful and was quick to respond to any needs. The hotel offers free pick up and drop from the train station, which was helpful. There are always autos or cycle rickshaws outside the hotel, so it was easy to get around, during early mornings and late evenings as well. Most importantly, it felt safe, as a woman traveller. The room has AC, TV and a kettle - the room service was decent, especially breakfast. The wifi was a bit of a problem as only one person can use it at a time. Overall, a conveniently located hotel with good basic facilities, helpful staff and a safe and clean environment.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms face the main road and hence might be too noisy during the day.

The staff were very friendly and helpful, I felt very safe and well looked after. The rooms were great for the cost, the wifi was good and fast. I would highly recommend staying here if you are travelling on a budget and would like a clean and comfortable place to stay.

The hotel is centrally located and has some parking in the front.
Prices are reasonable and frankly the service is not that great.

Specifics:
Beds are uncomfortable.
Bathrooms are clean without being fancy.
Rooms are fancy while attempting to be luxurious.
Has its own resturant which I did not try and hence can not comment on.

I found the manager at the front desk to be unhelpful especially in a tourist / pilgrim destination like Amritsar.

Other hotels we have spoken with did have far more to offer like discount coupons to resturants also within the same price range but not as well located.

Essentially, if you are on a limited budget and Amrtisar is a weekend trip, this place is not bad.
But look at a few other options as well.
