“worst worst Hotel - ever in my life”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

Joking .... as by telling International nothing was an level of Indian hotel only international is so far.Very very congested rooms on very high rent.I have paid Rs.2500/- for One night stay.rooms doesn't have the fresh air from anywhere,terrible bathrooms also.firstly they give me room no.303 the room I have never seen before that size only one feet space around the bed we can put our legs only in that space and nothing else,after that I have change to room no.306 littel but big and have window.At the time of check out I tell him for credit card but he told that we don't accept payment by card the swipe machine is only for showkase,I am get shocked beause i am check-out at 4.30am in morning and don't have enough cash to paid,after that firstly I have to go ATM by taxi & after collecting cash we are finally check-out.Thanx god that ATM was nearby neither our train was missed.I have chosen this hotel because of golden temple was near to this and we can spent more time in it.But in amritsar we can reach from in 15 minuts from any where to temple by taxi,rikshaw and cycle rikshaw and they are not so much costly.
Don't think this hotel at any time & any discount because there are lot of options we can choose.

The location was ideal. We could walk out of the hotel barefoot and head to the temple. No shoes allowed in the temple:) Sunil was the restaurant manager and was so helpful and accommodating. Thank you.

No problems whatsoever, and I can't imagine a better value!! The service was remarkable - the front desk and restaurant staff were very accommodating, especially Sunil!! Very enjoyable experience - thank you to all! Highly recommended.

My husband and I stayed here 2 nights on a G Adventures tour. The location is fantastic, right near the entrance to the Golden Temple, so you can leave your shoes in your room to go and visit. Our room was comfortable, and clean enough. The electrics were a bit temperamental, but the a/c worked fine, and there was a fridge too, both of which were much needed in May! The staff were mostly friendly and helpful (though we were grossly overcharged for breakfast, which we had to rectify, and our passports were kept overnight because we arrived late, which wasn't good). On the whole, I would recommend this hotel for a short stay in Amritsar to visit the Golden Temple, because you can come and go as you like, and should get a good night's sleep.

My sister and I wished to see the Golden Temple with my daughter (of 4 years). Checked into the Indus Hotel first, they were polite and professional (IMHO) over the phone. The room provided was dirty; the sheets seemed like they had not been washed, there was dirt under the bed, an old cold drink package, a biscuit amongst other 'bits'. We requested an alternative room to which they stated there was not one available. My sister decided to check out this Hotel, she came back stating that she would like to move. One of the Indus Hotel staff, hearing that we may potentially be moving next door, decided to offer us 2 alternative rooms. My sister reviewed them however they were unsatisfactory.

We moved to CJ International.

This was around 4 o'clock in the morning. The room provided was comfortable. The service offered was grand and the food was enjoyable and reasonably priced (Chana Bathura/Puri Bhaji @ Rs. 110). Clean towels and a toiletry set (Soap, shampoo, bubble bath, moisturiser) were provided. The check out was great, we were charged half rate for the first night without a request. All in all...a comfortable experience...and what a fantastic location for the Golden Temple.

CJ International is one of the best hotel near Golden Temple. A good hotel to stay as rooms are spacious and service is also good. This is only the good hotel near by and easy to commute. Food and service is also good.

Our main Purpose of chosing this hotel was to stay near Golden Temple. We had a comfortable room on the lower ground floor with 3 beds and was clean. Room was spacious good enough to accomodate family. Gian chand at front desk was very helpful in organizing the tour to Border and organized a Golden temple visit with english speaking guide. This hotel is located right infront of the Golden temple and we had no complaints. There were some discounts offered to us since we booked through email. My husband really liked the Lassi of this place. Overall a good stay.
