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.
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.
