Lebua Lucknow - Saraca Estate built in 1936 is a luxury boutique hotel located in the heart of the city - Lucknow. It’s a heritage bungalow with 41 rooms which is carefully restored into a boutique hotel maintaining the blend between the heritage and the contemporary setup required for a hotel.




About the rooms:

Clean, hygienic, non-smoking rooms represent the Lucknowi heritage and art and architecture through its courtyards and terraces. You will find every basic amenity like air conditioning, WiFi at common areas, television with cable connection, electric kettle and some complimentary tea and coffee satchels.


We had booked ‘Executive Rooms with Breakfast. The rooms were not very spacious though, but we loved the complete interior setup. The rooms opened in a common courtyard where we spent most of our time during our stay at the hotel, especially during evening tea and dinner.
