I'd recommend this visit to anyone looking to celebrate a special occasion or have a wonderful, warm, royal experience! Taj did spectacular job at giving us a memorable experience. The palace is resplendent. And, as always there is no hospitality like that of Taj! If you're visiting, get ready to get charmed! :)

Visited for High Tea during with family. Its a palace converted into a hotel. Entry is restricted to guests with bookings only and the entrance it feels like you are entering a fort. Its a beautiful property and still has remnants of the Victorian times and its influence in British ruled India. The tea and tea-time accompaniments were served in... More

The experience at this hotel was excellent, from being met at the main gate by a horse and trap to take you to the main entrance. The staff were extremely helpful, the room was excellent and liked walking around the grounds and looking over the city. Excellent food and the waiting staff were helpful and attentive without being obtrusive. Was... More

Stayed 2 nights at the Taj Falaknuma. It is a heritage hotel that belonged to the Nizam (ruler) of Hyderabad state. It was in a state of disrepair for many decades till it was taken over by the Taj Group of hotels and refurbished at a cost of $50 million. What an amazing refurbishment! The Nizam was reputed to be... More

This was an excellent experience staying in the palace of the last ruling Nizam.Much to my surprise it was a late Victorian mansion, which was exquisite. Having said the we felt it was over priced, but we couldn't fault the hotel.

Stayed for a night enroute to Kolkata from Tirupati to bring in our wedding anniversary. The Taj Falaknuma is a beautiful palace and give guests an opportunity to experience the lifestyles of the nawabs / maharaja's of pre independent India. The Rooms and suites are so tastefully done. The dining venues and parts of the palaces are simply out of... More

Went for dinner at Gol Bungalow. It is much more than food and drinks. It's a sneak peek into the lives and riches of erstwhile Nizams. Reservation is a must and should be done at least a week in advance. The food was excellent and the entire experience was overwhelming.

Faultless. This hotel is in the most magnificent setting with beautiful gardens and the most fantastic view all round. Hyderabad sparkles below at night and one is high enough not to be disturbed by the sounds of the subcontinent. The Indian food was delicious and spiced according to your taste. The rooms beautifully decorated and the staff could not do... More
