“Good value again - my second stay.”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

On balance, I've enjoyed my second stay. The location is perfect, at the edge of Banjara hills and with good access elsewhere too. The staff are lovely and whilst the service is sometimes haphazard there are individual staff that genuinely seem to go the extra mile to help. The pool area is a lovely retreat, and the pool was spotlessly clean. Food was good, nothing special in the breakfast and it was hard to get attention to get top ups of coffee and water. I was disappointed with the "club" room, firstly for the badly stained carpet but secondly because the "club lounge" had no amenities whatsoever. But overall, a nice hotel with nice staff and I do hope to go back again.

Room Tip: As the "club lounge" is just a room with no additional amenities, I see no point in paying...

A well-appointed hotel, clean and quiet. However check-in was slow and it took much longer than anticipated to get an iron and ironing board and a plug adaptor. The rooms were pretty standard size and the beds comfortable. The laundry service was very speedy and good.

The staff is extremely courteous and helpful, rooms are clean, water pressure is good but the towels are really tattered and should be discarded for new ones. The included breakfast was lavish with fresh dosha made to order and other goodies of all kinds. elevators were very efficient. There is no in room safe but the front desk can store your valuables. Their restaurant named after Nizam serves the authentic and delicious Hyderabadi dishes which is worth trying for carnivorous guests. The traffic outside is just horrible and one can't walk or cross the street for fear of getting hit by multitude of unruly vehicles. There is park in the vicinity but one has to bet his life to get there.

Room Tip: Get a room on the higher floor to avoid the highway and street noise. Try the restaurant with at lea...

Excellent hotel, I enjoyed my stay here. Location, facilities, food, service all were top class. Especially the dum biriyani was one of the best biriyanis I ever had. A small negative experience, not significant though, was the not so pleasant smell in the corridor in the mornings. Highly recommended.

We visited Hyderabad for a family trip and we stayed in this hotel 2 days. From outside it looks like a some development centre. But inside it is completely different pleasing interiors and staff who are well trained. Rooms were neat and clean. Corridor in the 6 th floor had a typical musty smell.

While it doesn't look too inviting from the outside, this is a good hotel. I checked in early morning and the staff were very helpful.I kept a lot of luggage in the cloak room and they helped me.

The first thing i did while checking in was going o the morning buffet which i must say was delicious. They had the usual south indian fare which was good of course besides cold cuts, cakes and the usual continental breakfast fare. Delicious.

The rooms were clean, relatively luxurious and so were the bathrooms. I was happy with the room, it looked good and it was comfortable. Room service was good too sometimes they take a little while to deliver food but that's what i have seen at every hotel in this country. The food is good depending on what you ordered.

I had perhaps the best Mutton rogan josh at this place. I insist that you try it. It's in the dinner buffet or you can order it at the room but it's fantastic. As good as some amazing delhi food.

There's nothing more to be said here, the hotel is good, the staff helpful and the food delicious. I would stay here again !

Centrally located hotel very nearby to major attractions like lumbini park, Birla Temple, Necklace Road etc. Good Rooms but smaller in size. service is also nice. The biryani served in Jewel of Nizam restaurant is very tasty. The coffee shop is also okay. Airport is almost 20kms from the hotel and it would just take 30-45 minutes.
