“Old World Reflections”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

I travelled to Hyderabad for a workshop that was designed to be explorative and stressful on an emotional level. At the end of the day, a quiet place to retreat to was highly recommended. For that purpose, I dont think I could have asked for a better place. I loved the old world feel of the rooms - they were bright and airy and housekeeping was conscientious of keeping the rooms clean and tidy.

On a personal note, I love a cup of hot cocoa first thing in the morning. I have to rate their cocoa as the best I have had in any of the other places I have been in across the country :)

The staff was courteous, helpful and pleasant to interact with. There are places much higher on the modern "stylised" factor, but this place struck a chord with me with its "old" feel.

Good value for money for personal or professional trips. I recommend a stay here.

Room Tip: If you are taking a smoking room - you might want to request them to help getting the room aired out...

I stayed at this Taj property in June '12 and I must say that I did enjoy my stay. I had a comfortable stay. Staff was very helpful. Breakfast was a treat. Sunday brunch was also great. Lunch and dinner at times used to get repeated which was a bit let off. But apart from that I had a good time. Definitely recommended for a short stay.

Room Tip: Try to take the rooms on the top floors. If you can get a pool view room, then its all the more bett...

This hotel shows its age - from the look and feel of the property down to qauality of furniture provided. Specifically, which hotel today provides a small CRT television in room and call itself a five star property? TIme to change the decor thouroughly. This hotel should have Gateway branding, not Taj branding.

Saving grace is the quality of service - similar to any Taj property. Also the room tariff is quite low. However, given the number of new hotels opened in Hyderabad in recent past, difficult to recommend this one to anybody.

I was there for two nights in the month of April . I really enjoyed my stay here . The service was excellent , location fantastic , the food was great . Rooms are spacious and has a old world charm to it . If some body is looking for a ultra modern , spic & span hotel you will disappointed . If you are looking for a comfortable , relaxed , spacious hotel with old world charm , then this is the place to stay . It has got lovely well manicured gardens .

Overall a great value for money , I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Do Not take the garden facing rooms .

The check-in process, was slow however without complications; Hotel staff was OK, not really adding any value..

From the lobby the hotel looks nice, unfortunately it stops there. When you reach your rooms you can see that these require a well overdue renovation. The decor, furniture & appliances need to be up dated, all seems from the 80's. (early 80's)

The wi-fi besides being charged & overpriced, it was very slow and intermittent..

Food at the hotel was OK. I wouldn't stay here again.
