Arif Castles Hotel, Lucknow


With the excitement of visiting the city of Nawabs, I got up at around 7’o clock in the morning. Most of my co-passengers were still asleep. I was also lost in the thoughts of learning about some fascinating chapters of history. My thoughts were interrupted by the morning tea from the train pantry. With the refreshing tea, I opened my travel guide to Lucknow and started making a tentative schedule and placed I would visit on my trip. At around 10:15, I reached my destination. I disembarked the train and looked for my pre-booked cab which then took me to the Arif Castles Hotel. The hotel was located very close to the railway station and was beautifully architected into a three story building. I was ushered by the affable staff that carried my luggage to my room after the necessary paper work.

My room was on the third floor, as I like heights. It gives immense pleasure to look at the city spread around when I am at heights. Don’t you?

I was pleased by the beautiful interior of the room when I entered. The decently sized room was facilitated by all the basic and modern amenities that a person on vacation would like to enjoy. I made myself comfortable and then made some coffee from the provided coffee maker and enjoyed it while watching television. Wow, what else one needs on a winter morning!! Well, I was on a vacation and didn’t want to waste it by sleeping or watching TV in a luxurious hotel room. Rather, I had great plans for the day. So, I quickly got ready and looked for the breakfast menu which had a number of options. I ordered my breakfast in the room.

After filling up myself with the delicious breakfast, I started exploring Arif Castles Hotel. It was well designed, more inclined to give the Nawabi feel. I was feeling happy about the choice of the hotel that was value to money. I asked the staff members about the nearby places to visit. They were very co-operative and guided me by the places and maps. The hotel also arranged for my travel within the city.

"Hi there, my name is Lalit Chandran. I currently reside in ‘Pink city’ i.e. Jaipur where I run a garment export business. Having spent all my childhood in Rajasthan, I fell in love with Indian history and all its glory. So, whenever I get an opportunity, I travel to various places all across India exploring old cities, museums, forts and historic monuments. This blog will catalogue all the places I have visited, people I have met along the way and different cultures I got a chance to experience.

I am hoping sharing all my adventures will help raise awareness about our ancient heritage and maybe help preserve and protect these remnants  of India’s glorious past. Feel free to leave your comments. "
