This hotel is an oasis amid the chaos, tumult, and horns in the city of Amritsar, Punjab in northwest India. Even I think the best way to manage the first few days of your stay in the city - until you get used to it (if you ever do) - is to split your time between the Grand Hotel and the Golden Temple. Between these spots, you can recover your well-being. I hope that in this way you will understand how I was welcomed by the Grand Hotel, and the excellent service they provide. Always served and received by an adorable (thin) layer of dust, sneezing or between staff sneezes or other funny sounds of the employees. Always with the best intentions, I highly recommend the Grand Hotel, steps from the central railway station of Amritsar.
In the complex that surrounds the Golden Temple in the populous city of Amritsar, and the temple kitchen and beautiful gardens there is a pair Ashram, what has become a shelter of a lifetime. It is run by devout Sikhs, and in addition to temporarily accommodating the pilgrims who come to their holiest shrine, it has a room for travelers. Several units are available for travelers. Everything is free, however, most travelers will offer some form of donation. There is a very long fourth floor, full of beds, all together (enter barefoot), a pair of smaller annex rooms, with 4 or 5 beds, also together, and a shower room (single sink and shower ). The baths and more showers are communal and are on the other side of the courtyard. For what you might expect in India, the place is spotless, especially the bathrooms, which are constantly cleaning. Of course we need bag / sack-sheet (seasonal), but have a pillow. And the toilet paper is a must. An inexpensive way to stay in Amritsar.
