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.
