This is my second stay at The Golkonda. Even though its a bit further away from my area of business while in town, i prefer staying here. As usual I liked my stay at the hotel. The room was perfect. Staff was courteous as usual. Missed out on using the swimming pool this time though.

What I like about the place is the close proximity to The Paradise joint which serves really good Briyani and other delicasies.

Would most definitely recommend this to travellers who visit Hyderabad for business stopovers.

This is a good hotel for business travelers and family too. Only negative point is the location. Just outside is a v busy road and you cannot take a walk easily. The fitness center closes at 9.30 pm and I asked but they did not allow later than that. The hotel is an old hotel but they have redone and renewed the rooms. The room was a large one and comfortable. The towels were just OK and few. The breakfast is good and you have quite a few varieties. Staff is friendly. Room Service is good.
There is a very good restaurant at the lobby level and you get good meats and Hyderabadi Biryani too. I ate two dinners.

I have been using the hotel on a regular basis and would like to mention that the front desk team is extraordinary with an acute sense of guest sensitivities and requirements regarding the product & services on offer . They ensure guest comfort from the time the guest registers with ready assistance available wherever required .

The rooms are tastefully decorated with all modern amenities and free access to the pool and well equipped gymnasium for the in house guests provide absolute value for money.

The Zanzibar and the 24 hour coffee shop with a variety of dining and wining combinations and offers make for a great place to hang around with friends and family .
The Indian specialty restaurant with an array of awards on display which it has won for the authentic signature Nizami theme is a great place to entertain guests with a soothing Indian classical instrumental rendition every evening .

The Business center and the Lounge at the Klub floor offer exclusive privacy ideal for business meetings , parties and get together . By all standards I would say that this hotel is at par with any world class hotel with knowledgeable and friendly staff willing to go out of the way to ensure guest comfort .

The hotel has a dedicated travel desk with warm and professional drivers who take you around with pride and pleasure and are polite and informative . The desk also organizes guided tours and fixes itineraries as per individual suitabilities . Service is prompt , reliable and reasonably priced .

All in all . a world class hotel highly recommended for business and leisure stays and gatherings with amazing staff , excellent food , comfortable rooms and multiple conference and banquet facilities .

Best part is that the hotel is strategically located at the center of the city equidistant to the airport , old city , markets , hi-tech city and railway station with easy transport and convenient logistics readily available.

I booked The Golkonda Hotel from the hotel website just for location and price. It was a last minute booking . The price was the same as MakeMyTrip + tax.
The airport pick up was smooth and the driver, Raju, was very courteous.
Lobby is modern and bright. Check in was efficient and hassle free. Reception staff are excellent.
Premium Rooms are average size and well appointed. The sound insulation is good. The toilet is modern .
The included breakfast buffet had a large variety of western and Indian fare. I personally preferred the South Indian vegetarian section.
Note: There is no hand shower near the w.c. ( something that has become standard these days )
There is no shelf to keep a shampoo in the Shower area.
The wi-fi was erratic ......we did not have internet for a full 12 hours.
What makes up for these inconveniences is the excellent staff who were always prompt in their responses to requests and complaints.
Food and service at the Jewel of Nizam and the bar was very good.
Location is great but the travel desk has only half day ( Rs 1150) and full day ( Rs 1800) ac car hire. Would have been nice to have an hourly service.
Having said that, autorickshaws are parked just outside the gate and work both by meter and negotiated deal. Ask for the price before you sit :)

Room Tip: Avoid rooms on the second floor, ...they have ugly cables visible on a ledge outside the windows. Ro...

Decent hotel, standard business and leisure hotel - centrally located. Reasonably maintained. Nothing good or bad to speak about.

If you stay at the property, you can walk up to Paradise take away nearby and get your food packed. On first night i opted for the dinner buffet, however next evening it was packed dinner from paradise.

My trip to Hyderabad began with a disaster when I was booked at one of the so called 4 star hotel which was dark n empty with restaurent closed at 11pm (was my check-in time).

That's when my cabbie took me to The Golkonda, and I breathe a huge sigh of relief after getting a decent room after a tiresome journey from Bombay.

The rooms are clean, very decent with good lighting. Wi-Fi is complimentary for 1 day which fulfilled my requirement to work from my room. Staff is extremely friendly and customer centric and will ensure that all your needs are taken care off at the wildest hour of the day. It was one of the quickest customer service I'd seen in any of the 4 star hotels I'd stayed before.

The breakfast at the Cafe is par excellence; you'd not wish to move out of the hotel for anything else. I savoured the great Hyderabadi Biryani at their very own restaurent "The Jewel of Nizam" and every grain of the food served was indeed a jewel.

Overall it was a nice stay, in fact I extended my stay by one more day with a thought of working from my room... That when I realised I found peace at "The Golkonda"...

Room Tip: Rooms with the backside view are quieter....
