“BANJARA BEGUM”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

The Taj Banjara has stood the test of time, having presided over Road No.1 Banjara Hills for over four decades. The location overlooking a small lake is unsurpassed and provides for a good view from the lake facing rooms.A little clean up of the environs would be welcome.
The hotel itself is small but well maintained and the rooms are large and comfortable.The coffee shop, where breakfast is also served, and the lakeside restaurant serving a range of tandoori items are both very popular with guests.
The elevator to the higher floors is key operated only for security and the room service and in-room dining were uniformly good. Rooms on the top floor are recommended.
All amenities are available and the car rental service for visit to the HiTech city and airport drop was efficient.
The association with the Taj Group has given this "old lady" (Banjara Begum) of Hyderabad a
distinct makeover.

Room Tip: To floor rooms for the view.

Spent a weekend recently at Taj Banjara. Rooms are good ( its Taj after all ) . Everything is nice . But what remained with me is the friendliness of the stuff and the smell of bakery . Its just fantastic . I will be back soon.

Room Tip: Extend your business trip with a weekend stay

Usual Taj hospitality and good staff. The rooms are large but a little dated now. The breakfast is good . The location is bang on target . Good place to stay You can try some hotspots nearby like hard rock cafe for an evening out. The check in and check out is pretty smooth however, not as great as you would expect from a Taj property.

Located at the center of the city Hyderabad, food is good, staff is good. Good ambiance. it could be said a very good option for stay in Hyderabad at good location with good service and comfort. Entry to hotel is very impressive, a lot of green cover outside the hotel make you feel good. Ask for a room with good view and not towards market area if staying for more days.

The hotel is located in one of the best locations in Hyderabad. But overall, its unlike Taj in terms of rooms, food options and quality. also, its a pretty old setup, only the service is good. beware of the mosquitoes as well from the adjoining uncleaned pond.

The hotel was poorly light to my surprise , the rooms were lacking consumables and had to call couple of times to get basic stuff. Need some major improvement in terms of service, ambience. Though the loaction is very central
