I have lived in Lucknow for 2 years when I was pursuing MJMC from Amity University. Going back to Lucknow after such a long time was really a good feeling. I was there was a cousin’s wedding. I stayed in Novotel Pune which is in Gomti Nagar area of the city. Gosh! This is the area where I stayed for 2 years as my college & PG both were in Viraj Khand, Gomti Nagar.

Yours truly!

And you know what? My college building was visible from the window of my room. Ahh! I know I am being super nostalgic right now but can’t help!

So, I stayed in Novotel Lucknow for 2 nights. The location is of the hotel is really nice and one can easily reach the hotel. Though, it being situated in Gomti Nagar, it is about half an hour drive from the airport. The hotel is situated at a walkable distance from the Sahara Hospital. There is also a shopping complex and a mall within 2 kms of the hotel. This makes the location of the hotel really good, especially if you a tourist.

The property is huge and has 106 well ventilated rooms & suits. I got a supreme king sized room which was simply apt for 2 adults. Here’s my room photos!

The room had all required amenities like TV, AC, Wi-Fi, Tea/Coffee maker, fridge, makeup mirror, office essential, ironing board, money safe etc. I really like the couch setup in my room as it becomes bed, so just in case you are 3 adults, you can simply ask the staff to turn the couch into a comfy bed.

Hotel provides facilities like 24-hour room service, airport transfer facility, concierge service, laundry and dry cleaning service etc.

It also has a roof top infinity swimming pool giving you a view of Gomti Nagar.
