“Grand hotel, centrally located”
Reviewed August 11, 2011

Large public areas with a couple of schmancy restaurants and raj-style service make this old property a standout.

Breakfast and wi-fi are usually included and the rates are pretty good for this class of hotel.

The rooms have hardwood floors and crisp linens. The bath is attractive and there are a number of little amenities there, like toothbrush, that aren't often found.

Quiet a/c, enough outlets, outdoor pool, fitness center, room and laundry service.

Since it's an older hotel, not everything is brand new but it's a very nice place.

You won't go wrong with this hotel.

We went there on a business trip. The checkin was smooth and we were shown our way to the room. The hotel is newly refurbished 3 years back. The rooms are neat and crisp. The baths are very inviting and perfect. The sleep quality was also satisfying. We had one lunch at theor muglai restaurant with famous dum biryani... it was YUM, tasty and with lost of aroma and flavour though is little spicy for my taste.
Were were there mostly for the breakfast and the layout was stupendous with nearly a 20 dish layout. One of the best idlis I ever had. The hash browms and crossints very excellent. Hats off to the chef.
The staff is courteous and helpful.
The top floor gym and pool side is quite relaxing after a long days work.
a good value for money @ Rs. 4000/ night with breakfast.

This is the nearest 4 start property from Airport, which hardly takes 25 minutes from Hyderabad airport, and almost situated in city centre with nice & cozy rooms along with good dining... Rooms are very spacious with nice interiors specially in bathrooms. Its value for money for a business traveller for 2-3 days stay...

Decent hotel....prompt service...slight improvement required in the air conditioning!

I stayed at The Golkonda for about 3 days on my business trip to Hyderabad.
Its recently been renovated and is a very comfortable hotel to stay in.

I think the location was very convenient and it was easy to commute from the airport as well.

The facilities were pretty decent. The reception, the lobby, the business lounge, the restaurant and the rooms were tastefully done. Not a luxury hotel per

se but pretty neat for a business trip. The best thing that i liked was the warmt of the staff and the ambience
The only glitch that I faced was in the air conditioning. I had to switch room thrice but the hotel staff was extremely helpful and accomodating.

The room service menu is pretty elaborate and the food is quite decent as well. So absolutely no complaints there! Even their main restaurant 'Jewel of

Nizam' was done up very well and the food quality was good. N the breakfast buffet was quite good as well.

The usual In room facilties were satisfactory. However, in terms of Television channel options, I did find the choice slightly restrictive.m
Overall the war

Overall a decent experience and I would recommend it for a business trip

I stayed at this hotel for 10 days while doing research in Hyderabad. The location is great as it is pretty much in the middle of the city and right at the end of the flyover that takes you toward the airport. The Old Town is about 15-30 minutes away by autorickshaw and the Hussein Sagar Lake is just 10 minutes away.

I had a standard room which was really nice, not big but for one person it was fine. The bed was really comfortable and I loved the bathroom with the spacious shower cabin.
The only downside of my room was that it was facing the little garden on the back of the hotel where some evenings there were parties going on with loud music that literally made it impossible doing anything in the room - I couldn't even hear the TV when I turned it on. On the other hand rooms on the other side of the hotel face a very busy street so maybe the occasional party is to prefer... There is free wireless internet in the room which is great!
The swimmingpool is also a nice place to relax although it is a bit exposed (people in nearby buildings can see you while you sunbathe or swim, and it feels a bit awkward as in India normally I like to cover up as much as possible when out in public so as not to offend anyone...).
I usually had dinner in the hotel (room service), the food is good but the vegetarian choices were a bit limited. I do recommend the biryani from the "Jewel of Nizam" restaurant in the hotel, very good!
Overall it was a good place to stay in while in Hyderabad and I recommend it to anyone planning on visiting the city that is looking for a nice, clean and friendly but not super luxurious place to stay.

Oh and a tip for the hotel management: TURN OFF the music in the corridors, it is extremely annoing as you can hear it also from inside the room...after a few days it will drive anyone crazy.

For me as a busness traveller free Wi-Fi and parking is enough to make my self happy.Above this a restaurant, bar, outdoor pool, fitness center and a 24-hour front desk.

Air-conditioned room with a minibar and coffee/tea making facilities adds up to my busness work.

You must try Hyderabadi Dum Biryani in restaurants

An outdoor swimming pool, and provides BBQ, as well as laundry and dry cleaning facilities. Airport shuttle takes you to the airport without any truble.
