Dinner at Taj Falaknuma Palace for our 10th Anniversary on 14th July 2014. I booked a table at the Taj Falaknuma Palace a few days before (48hours notice is needed). Called them and the response was smooth and was given all the required info. I wanted details on mail and again received a prompt response. There are 3 restaurants non-residents... More

Often one is set up for disappointment when prior stories and recommendations are so good...but the Taj Falaknuma Palace exceeded all expectations! Extremely professional staff with exactly the right degree of friendliness, wonderful room, great food, history galore and a magnificent spa. Overall the experience was simply sublime in every respect! My only gripe was the extra charge for internet... More

My profession enables me to sit on various awards adjudication committees.In one such committee, earlier on in the year, dealing with HR and business we decided to give the Award in the services category to Taj Group of Hotels.This was not without some vigorous discussion among seven leaders of the profession,ferociously independent minded.The key arguement against it was that they...

WOW! My husband and I booked for afternoon tea on the terrace after reading all the wonderful reviews on this Taj owned hotel. We were not disappointed. It was truly like stepping back in time 200 years. We were shown to our terrace table with the city of Hyderabad laid out before us in the distance. We were the only... More

Went to the Faluknuma on 26th June with a group of friends, blocked the Adda for dinner and palace tour at 7.00pm. We were promised tour with a palace historian - at the appointed time there was no historian but a staff from TAJ who was the guide for a group of 25 people. This group was too huge in... More

Beautiful palace hotel; located on the outskirst of the city, hence more suitable for tourists. Airport to hotel: 30 minutes; hotel to city centre:30-45 minutes. Nice welcome; with an initial ride on a horse carriage from the hotel entrance to the lobby, and golf carts thereafter. Excellent period furniture, extraordinary 100 seater dining table, and miscellenoeus heritage allows for a... More

Pros: Great heritage property Meticulous restoration and attention to detail Well maintained lawns in a very old part of Hyderabad Cons: While the Indian restaurant was not a con per se, the food was underwhelming. Prices seemed exhorbitant Hats off to the Taj group for working with the Nizam's family on restoring this piece of history. In most western countries... More
