The Falaknuma palace exceeded all expectations. The staff is exceptional, and went out of the way to ensure our comfort. It was my fiance's 30th birthday, they surprised us with flowers and cake and happy birthday written in flower petals outside the room. The palace itself is quite opulent, extremely well maintained considering how old it is. Not a tile... More

I have stayed at various hotels across the world but Taj Falaknuma provided a unique experience. Right from the entrance with the royal welcome and the ride on the horse drawn chariot untill the checkout it was an exhilarating experience. The rose petal shower as you climb into the main lobby makes you feel royal. The lobby area with its... More

I have stayed at many luxury hotels over the last 30 years but the Taj Falaknuma far exceeds all of them in terms of the sheer magnificence of the property, the consistently excellent service, and the very generous room amenities The breakfasts were also amazing . It was wonderful being treated like royalty! The only downside was the very poor... More

A beautiful palace once a royal guest house made into an opulent hotel in 2012. The architecture a potpourri of different styles, Neo- Renaissance, Baroque, Tudor, Italian and Art Deco! but a successful combination. A coach and horses will take you from the arrival gate to the main reception entrance. The rooms are comfortable rather than palatial. The service in... More

My teenager son had great expectations having already stayed at some fab hotels like Taj Oberoi, Schönburg Hotel Oberwesel on the Rhine, Niagara Hilton Fallsview. I think we were a bit disappointed, although the Carriage ride was great the guy who took the picture was rubbish!! As he was using the Digital camera he could have easily noticed that the... More

I was super excited about the idea of staying in palace and so is the rest of the family. We had booked two rooms and one being the Jahangir Suite. The road to the palace was a rough ride and the palace itself appeared to be anything else but a palace. Don't go by the lustrous and gorgeous photoshopped pictures... More

once everyone should stay at falaknuma. try the rooms in eastern side garden. upgrade is rarely given, but i expected more upkeep of the gardens and the area in the eastern garden side, a dining option in the old building area is much needed. the hotel needs to add the hyderabad as an attraction. overall outstanding.

Like most people, I was blown away by the property. The folks at the Taj did an amazing job at bringing the property back to life. I was impressed with how so much of the original was kept in tact. The man cave on the 2nd floor is amazing. I was also pleased by the food, the restaurant Adaa had... More
