Okay, okay. Don’t all come jump down my throat at once. Read this review and see the pictures, and then you can let me know if I’m being too harsh. I’m giving the Primus Lounge Amritsar a 1 star at the very max. When we hear the word ‘lounge ‘, we often associate it with luxury. However, my experience at the Primus Lounge Amritsar was a stark contrast to that. It was a significant letdown, and if you’ve been to Amritsar airport, you’d likely share my sentiment.

Primus lounge Amritsar entrance:

Located on the 2nd floor of the ATQ airport, the Primus lounge is right in the middle of the boarding area, set up with four awful-looking panels. The Primus lounge is part of Priority Pass, and frankly, I don’t know how they are not even ashamed to be associated with this horrible-looking place.

Primus lounge Amritsar food:

The food’s tired appearance and dry texture perfectly matched the lounge’s lacklustre energy. I refrained from eating, fearing the possibility of food poisoning, a risk no one wants to take in an airport lounge.

Primus lounge Amritsar bar:

Again, the fact that this bar seemed like it never even saw a bartender is beside the point. Apart from the fact that you need to pay for a drink, I don’t think I would’ve had a drink there even if you would pay me.

Primus lounge Amritsar seating:

There were some seats, tables, and fans, but the place just didn’t feel very inviting. I didn’t want to sit there long, and I’m sure you wouldn’t either.

I didn’t spend much time in this place because I’d rather sit in a coffee shop and enjoy a flat white. However, I paid £20 for this because I wanted to see this lounge, and I can safely say that this was the worst £20 I’ve ever spent. I’m sure you wouldn’t want to feel like you’ve been overcharged for a disappointing experience.

  1. I’ve. Seen worse.
    India is generally a non-drinking nation so alcohol mostly for foreigner s is expensive, hence the charge. In terms of. Decor, have a. Look at the photos of the JFK T4 PrimeClass Lounge. That’s embarrassing. And for amenities, the IASS lounge in HNL is a joke.
    This lounge doesn’t seem great, but it might be a little nicer than the public areas.

    1. wow the iass lounge in hnl is terrible i’ve never seen it but now i must go there and see for myself… the jfk lounge though is DEFINITELY EMBARRASSING for ny airport for sure.
