Getting There


The hotel is located close to the main business centres of the city.

 

Lucknow the capital city of Uttar Pradesh, extends along the banks of River Gomti.  It is also popularly known as "City Of Nawabs" for its courteous hospitality and mannerisms.

 

The city is a maze of ancient monuments, expansive parks, crowded markets and narrow lanes. The Nawabi culture still remains and is seen even in the culture of today. It is this culture that has earned it a tag of Cultural Capital of India. The huge mosques and big Imambaras add to the old-world touch. Food and clothing are other things here that have kept the Nawabi style alive. The Chikankari work has always been a pride of fashion. The Mughlai style food is loved by people of all walks of life. Lucknow surely has a lot to offer to all those who visit the place.
