      Nice stay, helpful staff, good location”

      I booked a private room for 1 day. Pros - Very nice staff, specially the owner lady. I had to visit Atari border and they allowed to keep my luggage after checkout till evening. and let use common bathroom in evening as well. Thanks for that - 5-7 minutes away from golden temple. Just 50 meters away from partition museum. - whole property was neat and clean and room was tidy. - restaurant in front of hotel is also nice. Cons - Geyser was of low capacity and had to wait in between shower to get hot water again. Overall value for money.

      Budget Stay with the Best Location”

      The hotel is situated in a very nice area and is accessible very easily. It is hardly 2-3 mins walk from Golden Temple. The staff was very helping especially Manju and Ravinder. They served very delicious parathas and Kulchas from their kitchen. They responded quickly to my request of changing the blankets as they were dirty. I would ask the staff to kindly replace some linens as they are not usable anymore. Overall 5/5 stars from my side. Please do visit.
