“Colonial ceilings in the brutal heat”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2009

1355 Gt Road lies between the main street and the railway link. A bit off the spot but close to the main bus station and the railway station. It´s 15 minutes to the Golden Temple by rickshaw.

Distanced but helpful staff. They´l organize any trip You like, especially good to see the Indo-Pak border ceremony at the Attari-Wagah border post. Don´t miss it!

More expensive rooms have TVs, hot showers and private bathrooms. One or two rooms have brutally high ceilings. Buildings must be from the colonial area.Considered A/C was a huge fan in an old window blowing warm air into the room but it was quite better with than without.

Th roof is great to sit out and have a beer (if You find some in Amritsar) and a chat with the other backpackers. Restaurant is basic and average but their range of indian breads and raita is tasty and great!

All in all, it´s a very nice and comfy place compared to other guest houses in Amritsar or Inida in general. The astonishingly high number of geckos shouldn´t bother You as well as the easily breakable room locks (from the 1940s or so)... so bring Your own. Even Your small bag locker would be more secure ;)

More than I expected and truly atmospheric! And if You love indian circumstances, You´ll love this! Seems to be THE thing for backpackers since decades...
