“Nice place in the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

First, one needs to have the right expectations. The Banjara is not a full fledged Taj Resort. It is not a Vivanta either. Its a unique property managed by the Taj.

Secondly, there is a lot written about the lake adjoining the hotel and how its dirty and stinking. Well, it is indeed dirty but we didn't really feel the stink although we spent a lot of time at the swimming pool which is beside the lake.

We (2 adults + 5 year daughter) were on a holiday in summer. We knew that the Hyderabad heat was bad but we actually had a good trip. Hyderabad has many attractions like the Laser Show, Snow World, Golconda Fort, Salar Jung museum and of course Ramoji Film City.

The Banjara was centrally located. Had good food options within the hotel and outside. The staff was very helpful and the swimming pool was much better than expected. The rooms were slightly small, but that's probably if you compare with Krishna - which was much more expensive.

Room Tip: We were scared about the "lae issue" but it really doesnt matter.

If you have stayed some of the good Taj properties, this is quite average.
The property itself needs some maintenance now.
You definitely experience the Taj hospitality though.
When I stayed here, there was also a wedding that evening. So lot of people around. There is no difference between the entrace for the banquet hall and hotel so it is a challenge. I could also not enjoy the pub as it was booked for a private party. Though overall, this is good but not the best.

Located in the heart of the city yet very calm.Staffs of the hotel ( front desk,room service ,housekeeping restaurant,gym) including the manager are very good and helpful.Hospitality of the hotel is excellent.
Spread of the buffet breakfast and dineer is excellent.
Trainers in the gym are very good and attentive.Trainer Neil in the gym was specially very cooperative and helful..
Yes the hotel needs renovation and the rooms need to be upgrated but overall experience was extremely good.Quality of service was high and the taste of food too was excellent and the hotel tariff is very reasonable.value for money hotel

Room Tip: Rooms with view of the lake is good.All rooms are calm but rooms with lake view are better

The hotel is centrally located in the posh Banjara Hills area.
Service and cleanliness are very good
Dining is excellent with variety of food choices. You can have both continental as well as hyderabadi biryani.
Variety of restaurants are there for you choose from, based on the occasion for the partying.
Rooms with great view of the lake. Excellent view at night with the area lit up.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view towards the lake. Lots of them are available.

You come to expect a certain quality from a Taj hotel and this does not disappoint.

The staff were absolutely fantastic. Buffet lunch was plentiful and tasty.

The bar area outside was lovely at night, especially with the fans (a nice touch)

Generally a good hotel with pleasant decor.

Very good hotel. Convenient to go to airport. Value for money. Special deals and rates for offseason make it very attractive. Good facilities. Very close to shopping area. Not in crowded place. Ask for lake view rooms. Good food varieties.

Room Tip: Lakeview rooms are good.

After having spend a few days in a more rustic property north of Hyderabad, the Taj Banjara was literally an oasis. The staff are across the board incredibly friendly and helpful. The food in the restaurant is great too, especially the breakfast. The room was wonderful -- no view but quiet and we got an upgrade to a junior suite, which was nice. Would stay there again in a heartbeat!
