    I am going to Amritsar and will be staying there for 5 days. I would like to find out what 5 star hotels in Amritsar are available to stay at.

    It would be good to have the hotel close to the shopping places, as it would be convenient for the wife and mother to travel.

    The home of the Golden Temple, Amritsar, is a city filled with lots of history and heritage. Aside from the beautiful and revered religious site of the Sikhs, it also the location of the Wagah Border, one of the only two open borders between India and Pakistan. Though the city has a tragic past, highlighted by the Jallianwala Bagh Massacre, it was able to pick itself up from this harrowing event. Amritsar is a very welcoming city which is why it is one of Punjab's most popular tourist destination. The selection of hotels in the city is quite a lot, ranging from budget ones to luxury ones. However, five-star properties aren't as plenty, especially as compared to other metro cities like Delhi or Mumbai.

    This ends our guide on the list of the five-star hotels located in Amritsar. Both the Hyatt Hotel and Radisson Blu Hotel are good options for those who simply want to visit the Golden Temple. They provide for free shuttle services to staying guests to and from the temple. If you want to stay away from the city centre, the Taj Swarna Hotel and Holiday Inn Hotel are good options. If you don't have your own vehicle and want to stay close to the major attractions, there's the Ramada Hotel.

    Good luck and I hope this helps you!:)
