Going to Lucknow, I asked a friend for a decent hotel. His reply was AMBER. I decided to check in. The hotel is a 10 min walk from the Char Bag railway station and about 15 minutes drive from Amousi Airport. Although the area is congested but ask any person on the street and he will guide you to the hotel.
The hotel has a decent parking lot but I did not find a guard at the enterance. The hotel is basically used by sales officers travelling to Lucknow. Upon arrival i saw quite a few, who were travelling with me from Delhi. Check in is smooth if you have prebooked and a wait if you did not contact the hotel before entering. Most of the AC rooms are booked for days as it is conviniently located and does not sport a high price tag.
Rooms are spacious (atleast the one I stayed in) I heard guest saying, that the conferance rooms in the hotel are always booked. The hotel does not provide acess to internet but you have a basic telephone working. The staff is good and works best on a small tip.
My first impression about the pan stains at some locations was not good but then nearly 4 out of 5 people I met were chewing on some pan or tobacco, so the stains are everywhere but luckily not inside the rooms.
My two days at the hotel were good but an advise on the food. Please do not ask for exotic or western food, try Indian, mughlai, lucknawi food. Thats the best available. Though not expensive but you may not like to disturb the taste buds with a russian salad.
All in all a hotel good for a nights sleep at a budget price.
