I was not lucky enough to be staying here, but instead came for a rather sumptuous Indian lunch and then the tour of the grounds. Thoroughly delicious food, extremely nice cocktails, and a real feel of luxury. My extended family (Hyderabad locals) all enjoyed it as well

there is not much that I can add to previous reviewers. This Taj hotel was faultless and the only hotel form many around India that we have stayed in that really felt like being in a palace. The furnishing and ambiance is exquisite . It was hard to believe that the furniture was all for us to use.. Nothing was... More

I have stayed at the Falaknuma many times, and can say it is one of my favorite hotels in the world. If you are in Hyderabad, you are missing the experience if you do not stay or at least visit the Falaknuma. It is a beautifully renovated true palace where they treat you like royalty. The service is amazing and... More

Having stayed at most of the other Taj Palaces, this was our last 'big one' to visit and we were struggling to see how it could possibly match up to Rambagh Palace, The Lake Palace or Umaid Bahwan. We were, of course, not disappointed! These palaces are all very different - Falaknuma is more colonial with some amazing antiques (including... More

One of the finest hotels in India! You are made to feel like royalty, the minute you step into the property. From the chariot ride to flower shower, the hospitality is awesome! The food (other than Indian) can probably be improved! Chicken Biryani is a must try... Overall, they really take care of you...

This place is a "must do" in Hyderabad. Front the moment you step in you are made to feel like royalty. The ride in the horse drawn carriage, rose petals being showered upon arrival are just tasters of what is to follow. Its a fascinating palace, restored to perfection!! It's to be experienced to be believed!! Ensure you get the... More

We stayed here 4 nights and could have done longer. The position of this old palace is excellent with views over Hyderabad city and the Decan plain (both now full of buildings!). Nevertheless quite a sight especially at night. The hotel itself is spectacular in the daytime and at night. Wonderful to sit out at night for pre-dinner drinks in... More

We stayed two nights here, in the middle of a 3 week journey across southern India. It was by a long way the most luxurious and spectacular hotel we stayed in (and that goes for all our other trips around the world). The ability to stay in a place of such heritage and beauty should not be missed. The room... More

This was my second stay and I only came back to Hyderabad to show this unique hotel to my wife. There is simply nothing negative I can say about this place. It oozes class and you feel privileged from the moment you roll up in horse & carriage till the moment you leave under a shower of rose petals. The... More

I went to Taj Falaknuma along with a guest for tea. It was an amazing experience. The ambience, the royal treatment, the palace rooms and the view from the top was just unbelievable. This is definitely a must do if you are visiting Hyderabad.
