Amritsar is not exactly flush with better hotel accommodations. There are only a few higher star hotels but they are 10-15 minute drive to the Golden Temple. There are several budget accommodations very close to the temple, which was why we selected the Hotel Royal Inn.

Overall I would say it rates somewhere between a 2 and 3 star. Our room - the Royal Executive Suite (in name only!) - had 2 queen size beds, a refrigerator, desk & chair, wardrobe, couch, AC, flat screen TV, bathroom with shower. It was pretty clean but white towels were a little grungy and sheets had holes in them.

There was no continental breakfast as advertised. (We actually drove to 2 other hotels for breakfast during our stay.) There was a limited veg menu (room service only - no dining room). The only internet available was at the front desk which you could use briefly - not as advertised or as we were led to believe. (This is a work issue for us, so we would have chosen someplace else based on this.)

The best thing about the hotel was the proximity to the Golden Temple and Jallianwala Bagh - within a few minutes walk of each place. Our room also had a decent view of part of the Temple Complex.

We used the airport pickup service from the hotel and the charge was twice as much as it should have been. We also used the hotel car and driver on several other occasions. (Normally we would not do this but with a small child and my elderly mother-in-law, it was the easiest way to travel.) There are plenty of cycle-rickshaws to get where you can't walk.

There are so many of this type of hotel within 5 minutes walk of the temple that I think I'd shop around.

Address: 49, Brahm Butta Market, Near Sarai Guru Ram Das, Opp. Punjab National Bank
Directions: From the Golden Temple Clock Tower - walk to first street, make right, go down about 2 blocks.

Stayed with my family in this hotel.Rooms are very small ( Smallest of all the hotels i have travelled). There is no place to keep you clothes or unpack your bags. The wash room is not clean at all. I reached hotel late night,,,but checked out next morning. The only advantage is that it is very near to Golden Temple.

I would recommend not to stay in this hotel,there are chaeper and better options available in Amritsar.

The location is very good - The Golden Temple is literally just around the corner. Shabby, but I believe is safe , at least safer than it looks. Managers are helpful, but be careful: may be they'll try - as they did to us - to put you in their "best " room, which is exactly the same as ordinary , just little bigger and with more beds and much more expensive.
Overall - suits for one-two nights stop.

The hotel is located in good condition. By seeing photographs we have booked hotel for 2 days. But after visiting we realised that we are duped. A Small room which may be of size 6'x7' and with 3'x5' bathroom (?). We really horrified by seeing this we cut short our visit for one day and left Amritsar very next day.
It has partially operated AC, with loose electrical connections to be handled carefully. Very Dangerous stair Case, be careful if you are going with Children.

My advise please take opinion of the friends who already had a visit to these hotels.

the hotel is located very near to the golden temple, guru arjan dev niwas gate. the suite was good with extra bedding on the floor. The room service was ok. The terrifying part was the staircase without any railing or support. For families with small children it would be very scary. They also have lift service and it was very cramped as with all small hotels. The view of golden temple from the room was very nice and also the proximity to the temple from the hotel.

We have been to the Hotel previously as well. They treat there guest in a very good matter.
The way they talk and provide you of the services is simply awesome. The Hotel is in its best location just 1/2 minute walk from the Golden Temple main gate.

The food at the Hotel was mouthwatering but the price was bit high. The only disadvantage is that they do not provide toiletries except a small soap.

They would help you out with the best possible advise on everything. I would surely recommend it to my friends & family.
