Faletti’s Hotel Lahore has a long history. The hotel was originally constructed by Italian person named Giovanni Faletti in 1880.
There was a clear demand at that time because many British and foreigners used to visit India during the British Raj. Europeans at that time had developed a fascination with India to explore the land which had completely different heritage, culture, cuisine and languages from their own.
This was a very exciting aspect for other nations to explore. In addition, since British were ruling, foreigners found it very safe to visit India for excursions.
Mr. Faletti capitalized this situation with his business venture by setting up a high end hotel in Lahore. Since then the Hotel was named after its founder Mr. Faletti and became the leading hotel for many politicians, foreigners as well as celebrities.
