I stayed in a super luxury room in this hotel during 26-29 April 2013. I booked the room over telephone. There was no difficulty in booking. Before starting my journey I had read reviews on this hotel, and it was 50-50. So when I reached Lucknew I prayed to good that I did not end up in a dirty place. On reaching, eventhough from outside it looked delapidated(not painted!), on entering the room, it looked cool!. It appeared like a house converted into a hotel. And receptionist did mention about it. The room was clean. Lenin was also clean, and AC was great. The commode was modern. Otherwise the room has only basic amenities, but was clean. The best part is all the rooms(costly ones) are in the ground floor, and room service was good. Eventhough the hotel does not have the amenties of a modern hotel, it is a great place to stay. I would stay there next time I go to Lucknow.
