Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This place is fine to stay if you are planning a one-day stay. Because none of their washrooms have any ventilation so on day 2, your room starts smelling from the washroom and there is no provision for room spray or housekeeping, till you check out. They would hear you at the reception and say they are sending someone to change sheets/clean washroom but nobody turns up! 🙄

It's walking distance from Golden Temple. To get a room you may walk in and request for room. We reached on Tuesday so we got 2 rooms on request. They charge 1 k per room. If you are planning to stay here, do remember to carry toiletries and towels with you. No hot water kettle, mini fridge etc. in the rooms.

Booking starts 15 days in advance before your date of residence, is ONLY online. By and large, convenient if you want to visit the Golden Temple. AC Rooms are large, clean, but no other facilities. Lock, roam around, eat out, sleep peacefully !

We booked online the Saragarhi Niwas. It is just like any 3 star hotel. Centrally AC. gushing hot water. neat and clean bathrooms. clean bedsheets. Only thing is that you have to carry your own bath towels and soaps and drinking water. You only get an accommodation for the approx price of Rs. 1100/- that you pay. Kirtan on all the time on low volume brings positivity to every room. They are strict with the check out timings and the card key gets deactivated. You have to request entry if you get late for darshan at the Golden temple and then you have to manage in the room without electricity. 7 minutes walking distance to the Golden temple. Overall, very good experience. Highly recommended..only booked online.

Hi,

I booked this online as we were visiting India and spending one night at Amritsar. As this is close to the gurudwara & pictures online are so deceiving, we decided to book this place.

On arrival, it wasn’t what we expected or seen in pictures. There was mould on the walls and it wasn’t immaculate as we expected.

We checked in and wanted to have a shower before we go out, there was no hot water in the bathroom. We bought this to staff attention and they said hot water only comes at set times and is only centrally controlled. We waited couple of hours but still there was no hot water.

Whilst we waited, I saw something small crawling on the white duvet, after looking closely I was shocked as it was a bed bug. I looked around the bed and saw loads of them sitting and crawling.

I called someone from the reception and showed them and they took pictures. However, they did not refund us the monies as I just couldn’t stay there knowing the place is infested with bed bugs.

There is an extremely nice place much closer to the temple which is also NRI and is immaculate. It is 3 times more the price at INR 3000 per night for 4 single beds but all worth it.

We booked a room and stayed here for 2 nights. One can book for a maximum of 2 nights through online booking. The room was neat, spacious and the bathroom was clean with provision of hot water. The staff at the reception gave us a good room facing the main road. Room needs a bit of a whitewash and the curtains need to be replaced. The location is fabulous and their is no other best place to stay other than this niwas.

This place is extremely filthy, bed sheets are full of stains an hair. Walking into the room you are greeted with a heavy smell of chemicals, mold and something very rancid. When visiting the golden temple it is better to sleep in your car compared to the rooms here. The bed sheets are as if they have never been washed and pillows are full of stains. I have no words for the conditions of the washrooms. The pictures speak for themselves.

My recent visit to Saragarhi Sarai turned out to be a deeply disappointing experience. My wife and I, a newly married Sikh couple, were excited to stay here while visiting the Golden Temple for darshan. However, the staff's behavior shattered our expectations.

Upon arriving at the sarai, we were promised a room reservation. To our shock, we were denied the room later on the grounds that we were a newly married couple. I did provde our Adhaar cards but it wasn't enough and the staff even had the audacity to make an offensive statement questioning our authenticity as a married couple, saying "Eh guru da ghar hai paaji," implying we were not genuine.

We are deeply hurt by the staff's disrespectful behavior and their inappropriate comments, especially as Sikhs who understand the sacredness of a Guru's place. We presented over 4000 pictures from our wedding, where more than 300 people gathered, in an attempt to prove our marital status, but it fell on deaf ears.

I'd like to address the false behavior of Kulwant Singh, who initially agreed to provide us a room and then abruptly denied us. Such flip-flopping only added to our frustration.

It's worth noting that they requires a marriage certificate to accommodate married couples. Unfortunately, we were unable to provide one as we had been married for only 10 days.

This incident has left us disheartened and frustrated with the unprofessional conduct of the staff. Our intention is to share this review as an informational post to warn others about the potential mistreatment they might encounter at Saragarhi Sarai. Discrimination based on marital status is unacceptable, and no one should have to face what we experienced during our stay.

We hope that by sharing our unfortunate experience, other couples will be better informed when making choices about their accommodations.
