“Good Hotel”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

I stayed here twice, while was on my Business trips. Location is great, as its Opposite to famous Sahara mall, where all top brands are available for shopping and Eating.
The Complimentary Breakfast Buffet is yummy with varities of snacks available.
Front Office staff is really polite, courteous and helping. Rooms are well- designed.

Hotel is right in front of the Sahara Mall, if you are willing to stay in the city. this is one of the most convenient hotels. If you like to go out just walk to Sahara Mall, Mcd, KFC, Tunday Kababi all available. a nice wine shop called Model shop is very near to have drinks. No girls are allowed to sit in the model shops however. Hazrat Ganj Rs 20 on cycle rickshaw. Good staff and nice management, very helpful. Recomended.

The Royal Cafe also owns a guest house at 13, Madan Mohan Malviya Marg with rooms on rent. This is not a hotel but a guest house or inn (as indicated by the name). I have stayed twice at this ground plus first floor property over the past few years and had a comfortable stay. It is far from being a hotel as it is not intended to be one and also because it is in a residential locality. This property is not much publicised and is known mostly to the patrons of the Royal Cafe group and is used during family occasions such as weddings. There are limited number of rooms and the furnishings have been done a while ago and thus not in the best shape but are functional. Room service with food preparation on site has been added recently and thus the menu is now a full fledged one (there is no restaurant on site and all food has to be ordered from the room and consumed inside). This is a small establishment with limited number of staff but all of who are courteous and helpful. The staff do interact politely with guests and do go out of the way to keep the guests comfortable. If you are not too fussy about the location and look for value for money accommodation at Lucknow, this establishment is worth a try. As with their other property at Lucknow, food is good; it is well made and served quickly after orders are placed. There are open areas in the inn where one can entertain guests either on the ground or the first floors.

Room Tip: Choice of rooms is limited. Rooms away from the kitchen on the ground floor would be preferable. B...

Good location. However too loud as function hall thumps it's music into guest rooms.

Ac not really functioning during parties in hotel as it's centralized and people staying in hotel suffer.

Food ain't great.
Promised discount for poor service but never did it as usual.

Good location is the only advantage

Booked the hotel after reading reviews about this Hotel on Trip Advisor.

Although the booking was confirmed and also the pick up was also confirmed since I had already passed my arrival in Lucknow to the Hotel Management, but on arrival there was no one from the Hotel for pick up. Had to call up the Hotel as well as Mr. Ashish, General Manager of the Hotel, and then the pick up arrived after waiting at the Railway Station for about 45 minutes…….Not a very good welcome.

Also was informed that the room is not available since their check-out time is 12 noon, this was surprising as we had confirmed our Arrival two months in Advance……Not Acceptable.
We were first taken to their other property i.e. Modena Inn, but since insisted on staying at Royal Inn only, we were later shifted around 10.00 am to Royal Inn.

The Hotel is located in an very convenient location, The staff was very courteous and helpful.
Room was spacious and clean except for the Bed linen (This is a minus point) had to ask for change, which was changed after reminders. The Bathroom was clean though the drainage had some problem, whenever we took bath the water stagnated leaving dirty bathing area. This was not rectified even after we pointed out this issue thrice.

Another issue was that as we had to check-out early morning at 6.30am, The discount confirmed at the time of booking was not offered, we pointed out the same to the Front office person, but he expressed his inability to do the same, since we were getting late for our flight, had no option but to accept and pay whatever was asked for but under protest.

Would advise travelers to re-check at the time of check on agreed discounts and packages.

Good Points:-
1. Clean Room.
2. Good Service.
3. Descent food.
4. Excellent location.

Bad Points:-
1. No pick-up even though confirmed in Advance.
2. Accomodation not available on time.
3. Discount was offered at the time of booking but not given at the time of check-out.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less noise, and are more comfortable.
