I'd made a reservation with this hotel based on their website, where it describes their super deluxe rooms as having
"a direct view of Golden Temple from their Balconies". However, none of the rooms we were shown had a balcony - just a smoked-glass window.
The rooms were small, passable, but quite how we'd imagined.
Furthermore, what the website called a 'Terrace Garden Over Looking Golden Temple' was the flat unshaded roof, whose only decoration was a pile of cigarette butts in the corner.
We expressed our disappointment to the hotel staff, but they refused to return our passport and insisted that we talk to the owner over the telephone. This repeated three times before my wife managed to snatch our passports from the receptionist.
We beat a hasty retreat and stayed at the hotel next door - whose prices were similar, rooms slightly larger, but which hadn't mislead us.
