What is a budget friendly hotel in Amritsar that is close to the railway station and the golden temple?
Asked by Mohan, 10-04-2018
Treebo Dee Intercontinental is a good option. The bus stops and railway station are within a 2km radius, and the golden temple is walking distance. The hotel also comes with a courteous staff, complimentary breakfast, on-site parking and fast and free Wifi.
