My husband and I were traveling from US to hyderabad and decided to have dinner at Taj Falaknuma property on 8th Feb 2024. We were asked at the gate if we had reservation for that evening , unfortunately we didnt have and so the doorman said we could not enter the hotel without reservation.(We had tried booking for the high tea on the website but werent able to due to some error on website hence didnt have a reservation ) He continued to say that dinner per person is approx 8000 Rs per person. since we didnt have reservation we left. It is very unfortunate to know that a property like Taj hotels would have such a mediocre reception at the gate of the hotel wherein we are told the cost of dinner, never heard or seen such behavior at any other hotels.We can afford to spend hence we were at Taj. Highly disappointing and will not be returning ever and definitely will be conveying liberally this experience to our friends and family.

Hotel's Favorite
As the name suggest my trip was an Jewel in the Sky experience. We were taken care of like celebrity. The love and care given by each individual was outstanding. Want to mention few Name Aditya and Naseer had done some outstanding job and gone beyond what is required to make us special. Sajjad and Ketki helped us lot and done some super job. Chef Nair was too good. Housekeeping staff made hot water tub bath ready with rose petal by the time we were back from palace tour which was so so good and came as a surprise. there are many name those who had helped and taken care of us and made it a life time memory trip. Dinner with Sufi singers, morning with peacocks dancing freely in garden lawns, buggi ride for welcome in palace, couteously royal hosts and mogra fragerance throughout thr stay. Will last long in our memories. Once again you people stand to your name you all are Jewel in the Taj properties. Love and Thanks Nair Rakesh 8435233333

Our 15th anniversary stay at the Falaknuma palace was a delightful affair in every which way! Right from the arrival at the buggy to the check in at the palace, the historical tour of the palace, to the mesmerizing sufi musical evenings, to the warmest attention at mealtimes....the amazing breakfasts with sparkling wine and extraordinary dinners with stars for company both over head and under feet....every moment spent here was sprinked with magic dust! Special thanks to the most amazing staff who made our stay a super special and memorable affair! Nasir ji, Pritha, Santosh, Jwala, Aditya and others at the F&B, Neil at the lobby, Kailash ji at the pool, Srikanth ji at the clock tower, the buggy riders, the team of musicians for the sufi Qawwali and the flutist sir....big thank you to all of you for all your small and big gestures for making our holiday an affair to remember and cherish always! Big big thanks to KV Rao sir for being so super patient with me for my photography requests! He the man you need to seek out ....to take some of the most amazing pics of a memorable holiday! We might just have to return for a stay at the Falaknuma soon again just to get him to click some more of our family portraits! Thank you so much once again Rao sir! Cant wait to be back again soon!

Super awesome stay and experience at Taj Falaknuma Palace. Right from the time one’s car arrives at the main gate until departure, the entire team displays the warmest par excellence hospitality in the true sense of the word. They make you feel nothing short of royalty. The word “no” doesn’t exist in the Falaknuma dictionary, no matter what the request, the team has been taught to only say YES!! Kudos to this wonderful team. Mr. Nitin and Mr. Shubham in particular who looked after every single aspect making it the most exquisite, memorable and comfortable stay, Mr. Rao who takes the most amazing photographs, the F&B team who went out of their way at Gol Bungalow for both dinner and breakfast!! The team at the poolside took special care to keep fishing out the falling leaves to ensure a pleasurable time in the pool. All in all, fabulous property, top notch hospitality and a superb experience. A place worth visiting over and over again!! Thank you Falaknuma!!

Wonderful stay at Taj Falaknuma. From the reception at the Clock Tower, the Horse carriage ride to the main building, the warm reception, the rooms, the food and of course the warm hospitality of the staff everything was perfect and just as we had imagined it to be when we planned this stay! Special mention to housekeeping staff Shubham and Shreeshail for their creativity in towel art and quick and efficient service. Also to Santosh and Gaurav in the restaurant for some excellent cilinary suggestions. The driver Rahman was a treasure trove of knowledge about history, acted as a de-facto guide and made our sightseeing trip with him worthwhile. Also thanks to Aabid for the very fast check out process !

Booked this hotel for 2 nights to celebrate our anniversary. Mentioned this in our booking. Prashant from the hotel reached out and provided many good suggestions. The incredible hospitality extended by this hotel and their extra-ordinary staff have to be experienced to be believed! Upon arrival at the gate a princely horse carriage takes you up the hill to the hotel. The hotel GM Vijay Shrikent personally made the effort to meet us and walk us to our room ( Jehangir Suite) - which was bright, spacious and decorated specially for our anniversary. In the evening they organised an outdoor cake cutting ceremony ( with a sword!). Thank you Nitin for all the arrangements.Our dinner at the patio of the Gol Bungalow overlooking the lights of the city was magical - thank you Aditya for your attentive service. The recognition by the staff and attention to detail was exactly what you would expect from a leading luxury hotel. Would highly recommend it it for anyone looking to experience old world charm in a historical venue with all the modern amenities.

Prior to reserving the opulent Falaknuma Palace, it is imperative to be cognizant of certain nuances. Regrettably, the demeanor of the staff, including security personnel resembling bouncers, has been reported as less than amiable. During events, supplementary staff may be requisite; however, a caveat exists - if your staff possesses a modicum of self-respect, their presence may not be welcomed. The sprawling distance from the main gate to the palace, approximately 500 meters, poses a challenge as only guests are afforded access to buggies and electric buggies. Remarkably, the establishment lacks provisions for supporting teams, precluding vehicular entry and restricting parking privileges solely to valet palace drivers. Moreover, an austere policy prohibits the consumption of snacks or beverages by team members on the premises. The culinary offerings at their restaurant, albeit luxurious, stand as a financial impediment, with charges that surpass the caliber of a typical five-star establishment. Delving deeper into the intricacies, the post-event experience unfolds with unforeseen charges akin to a bombshell. Having organized over 30 events in the past 12 years, my personal counsel would steer clear of this venue, and I refrain from recommending it to others. Notwithstanding these challenges, the palace exudes an undeniable elegance and beauty.
