MK Hotel Amristar
Ranked #30 of 98 Hotels in Amritsar
Reviewed 30 June 2011

This was the first trip to Amritsar for my family, and my first after 20 years... so wasnt up to date on which hotel to use... we settled on MK (note - its now called MK International) after trawling through a number of websites.
The location is better than we expected - we drove from Delhi to Amritsar, and actually entered the city, then found our way to the hotel through rushhour traffic... but theres an easy entry involving turning off (right, drive about 12 km, then looking for turnoffs to the left) before the city starts onto a new bypass road which connects almost directly to the hotel from the Chandigarh/Delhi highway.

The hotel itself is a bit old and shows it... but its well kept and clean... and staff are willing to go the extra bit to help you get settled in... Punjabi hospitality!... :-)

Rooms are big and clean - we had a package which got upgraded to a suite, which was great since the place was huge - service was quick and smiling.


In case you're in town to get to the Golden Temple the location isnt very good since you have to drive quite a bit and get stuck in traffic in the markets near the Temple (there are a number of multistorey parking lots near the Temple) ... the best thing is to leave your car in the hotel and hop into a 3 wheeler.. it wont save you time but at least you dont have the hassles. There's a 3 wheeler stand right outside. You'll need to bargain.. the standard starting asking amount is Rs100... settle for Rs60-75.. which is still high by local standards.

Hotel Mk is located in Ranjeet Avenue, which is nice area wide open and not crowded. Hotel MK is a good size hotel with even the base category room preety large.
Staff is a bit bent on tip culture but hotel is nice with clean rooms, good buffet breatkast. Hotel lobby has a travel shop and also a souvenier or general convenience shop.

Price for food was slightly on hogher side for me.

I was refrerred to this hotel for it does have a good reputation locally.

It is well located in the commercial end of the hip part of Amritsar. Would suit travelers who come here for pilgrimage, for the ride to the Golden Temple is short while the location is away from the madding crowd.

The rooms are old though. The beds comfy but the plumbing has its idiosyncratic noise.

Room service was prompt, although the Club Sandwich has its own version, albeot delicious. I think with non-veg food, hotels such as this would not get it wrong.

There are other new properties and ergo, choices cropping up in Amritsar. But at a competitive rate, this will always, I reckon, have its own share of clientele - both among business and leisure travelers.

MK Hotel is perhaps the oldest star hotel in Amritsar and that is perhaps why it is also a landmark in Amritsar. The hotel itself is not pretty impressive in the first sight and you might wonder if it really hosted several celebrities over the years.

The rooms are comfortable. The carpeting is ordinary and the furniture and fittings are almost perfectly working. The pool is too small to do any meaningful activity and the gym is meant for only a cardio workout. The breakfast buffet is good with a decent spread and reasonably good taste.

If one has lived in star hotels in other cities of India, MK Hotel may seem pretty ordinary and may even seem overpriced.

I will give it 3 stars out of 5,

Room Tip: Ensure that you get a room with a view of the road

I liked the idea of a notice in the room saying they would give you a complimentary fresh fruit platter on request. Cuts out on wastage of providing fruit basket in the room which a guest may not want. Location is very central. Food is good. Free wi-fi is a boon for the business traveller. Swimming pool not great.
Breakfast buffet not up to the mark.. Food cold, South Indian dishes felt like they were leftovers from the previous day.
