What a huge disappointment Taj Falaknuma! After reading all the rave reviews on trip advisor and hearing it from friends we decided to try the Falaknuma instead of visiting our favoured hotels like the Udai Vilas or Leela Lake Palace. It all started at the check in when the hotel tried to palm off the worst possible room in the... More

Taj Falaknuma is one of the best property at Hyderabad and our stay was made comfortable and memorable with great hospitality by courteous staff . Two restaurants Celeste and Adaa served all types of food . Mr Nasir was really nice to serve us well and I give my wishes .

This is the second time, I am staying in this breathtakingly beautiful, four year old palace. The most unforgettable experience has been the 70 minute performance of the Qawali singers at the Gol Bungalow. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the same. After a whole day's non-stop work, I was so fatigued. But, listening to the Qawali songs has been... More

I live in Hyderabad and so I have been to the Falaknuma on several occasions, for meals and I have also stayed at the palace recently for a weekend. The main palace building is really nice! However, what ruins the entire experience is the service! Really terrible considering this hotel is one of the more luxurious properties of the Taj... More

We arrived at the Taj Falqknuma Palace at the end of a great two week trip through Southern India. Although the hotel is very luxurious and grand, it still retained the feeling of being very welcoming and looked after us beautifully, The entire staff were helpful and attentive, without being overbearing, and our accommodation was excellent, as was the food,...

This extraordinary hotel certainly puts on a show, Arriving by car up a long drive, one reaches the gate to the inner grounds where a four seater carriage drawn by two horses of a local breed with cute crinkly ears await, driven by an immaculately dressed coachman. The ride up a rising driveway to the impressive Italianate palace prepares one... More

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
