Hotels in Lucknow

Interesting history and a vibrant culture make the capital of Uttar Pradesh an excellent destination on a trip around India. It’s less touristic than other cities like Agra and Varanasi, making hotels in Lucknow a great option for those who enjoy getting off the tourist trail.

Lucknow was once home to the Nawabs of Avadh, Muslim rulers who were known for their high tastes and love of culture. During the 18th and 19th Centuries Lucknow was known for its arts, and was famous for music, poetry, dance, and food. Those traditions remain today, and while you’re in Lucknow you will find plenty of opportunities to indulge your inner culture vulture. The city is still considered to be the cultural capital of Northern India.

Lucknow is a fantastic city for history buffs. There are lots of beautiful buildings, monuments, tombs and temples to see. The city sprawls quite a bit, and unfortunately most of the big attractions aren’t grouped together. Thankfully it’s easy to get around Lucknow by rickshaw. The fantastic Bara Imambara and Bhool Bhulaiya tomb complex offers wonderful examples of Mughal architecture, and has an intricate labyrinth. Rumour has it some of the tour guides even get lost in there.

The Ruins of the Lucknow Residency has an interesting museum in the basement. This was where the 1857 First Battle for Independence took place, when the Indians rose up against the British. Other important sites in Lucknow include the Chhota Imambara Musuem, the peaceful Buddha Park, and the Dilkusha Ruins.

Although alcohol is readily available, Lucknow doesn’t have much in the way of nightlife. Most Westerners choose to drink in their hotel bars instead of venturing into the city. The best way to spend an evening out in Lucknow is by sampling the local cuisine. The Mughal tikkas and kebabs are particular delicacies.

There’s a great range of accommodation in Lucknow to choose from. There are some excellent high end hotels and some lovely mid-range ones too. Plenty of international chains have outposts in Lucknow, so you can enjoy European home comforts. Most of the accommodation in Lucknow is geared towards budget travellers, and it’s easy to get some great bargains on rooms in the city centre.
