2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

this hotel is among the list of worst i have stayed over. you can feel that it is like a guest house not a hotel as only with small staff it is being managed.the staff is very untrained. absolutely poor service, sanitation was not upto mark , location is not so good , airconditiong of room was very poor , i think they purposely switch off ac in midnight to adjust their cost.Abolutely cheap hotel.

Room Tip: try to have other option

I checked in the morning into this Hotel and Oh what I found was that the AC was not working. After complaining three times, they said that by the time I would return in the evening they would get this checked and repaired. Even after returning, to my surprise the AC was not repaired and my frequent complains were not taken seriously.

When I lost my patience, I had to go to the reception Desk to have a heated argument. After a lot of yelling, they charged me non-ac charge of Rs. 800/- NET and I had to spend the night without AC since they were unwilling to give me a another room or give my advance back.

One of the employees told me that the AC has not been working for many months now and the management is not getting it repaired. Very pathetic service. Never checkin to this Hotel.

Just a normal hotel, location is quite good and service also. Good value for money I spent. Cuisine in restaurant was tasty enough. I visited local Aminabad Market- was impressed, very cheap and great variety of fruits. Railway station is also close

This is not a luxurious hotel but for the money, you get good value. We got some good deals on a hired car, by using the front desk. The hotel is well decorated and we found the room to be huge. The air conditioning was a little fierce until we found how to adjust it.Breakfast was good and plentiful,

Just a Budget Stay. Not much to mention. It can only be classified as modified version of rest houses that we find near railways stations/bus terminals. Nothing like Hotel. Reception managed by 3-4 local boys and same goes for support staff. The old style shutter lift won’t work if the spitting marks of Paan / left over tea cups waste/gutka wrappers all around and on roof top were not enough. Hotel mentions about parking available but you can park on the roadside only as the hotel is on road side only with no boundary Not many people found to be staying in the hotel. Hotel is big no no for family stay. One of the travel portal’s feedback compares this hotel with TULIP that is beyond reasons. The rates at hotel is un reasonably very high, perhaps that can be said about most of the hotels at Lucknow where hotel rates are on a higher side as to other comparable cities. You can have morning tea only after 7 a.m. as the said chef reports at that time. You get one soap and get towels when you ask for it, some proble definitely. All can be concluded by classifying this hotel as alternative option to rest house that we find near railway stations/bus terminals. So the Name SIMLA Palace is as foreign to a Lucknow Hotel as the Professionalism at Hotel.

Room Tip: Top Floor Would be very Hot.

Hotel is decent and professional, looks a spacious and star property atleast from outside, located right on main road but still calm from inside. They have contacts with many auto drivers and autos are always waiting just outside the hotel, and manager was more than happy to fix the rate. I went to Gomti nagar by auto in decent fare. They have own car too. So, as a budget traveller one will like. I had booked Luxury Room by makemytrip in 1324/-. Room was average in size (neither big nor small), with LCD TV, window AC, double bed, dressing table, chair, Almirah. bathroom was spacious, clean, western style with geyser. Towel, soap was there. They provided good B/F (paid)....So, its a good hotel, though you will get other decent hotels too (mainly around railway station) in 1324/- for single person....

Room Tip: Will not recommend to go below the level of Luxury Room in this hotel

I used to stay in Hotel Tulip Inn One of the best hotel in Lucknow, but could not find accommodation due to last minute Travel plan to Lucknow

Hotel is centrally located with near to Tulip inn only. From Outside you will find this hotel very attractive -but once you entered in hotel you will find special feature of this Hotel.
ROOMS ARE REALLY SPACIOUS and wooden carvings

service is good and i stayed here in nawabi style-Worth to stay
