The Golkonda Hyderabad
Ranked #33 of 330 Hotels in Hyderabad
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 16, 2014

Golkonda has large rooms with very comfortable beds. For about $80, it was a great deal. The hotel provided us with a free breakfast, with a huge spread. The restaurant also offers a good fare, though it is a bit expensive. The location -Masab Tank- is very close to all tourists attractions in Hyderabad. I will definitely go back there.

Pros: great rooms, relatively cheap, central location, free breakfast, quiet (top floors)
Cons: pricey restaurants, rather old building.
Suggestions: Paradise Take-away next door is a good choice for typical Hyderabadi food with huge servings. Checkout also Chutney, a good South Indian restaurant,

Room Tip: Top floors are quieter.

A group of 7 (2 families) spent three nights at this hotel in early 2014. The hotel itself is high quality and the food, security, hotel provisions and service and very impressive. In fact, it was one group member's birthday and the celebration was arranged by the hotel. It was a special time and we felt like family the entire visit.

We stayed at Golkonda hotel for 4 days.
Its a nice hotel with well appointed rooms.
Room was not too large but certainly not small. The bathroom requires a special mention, in that it has a transparent glass on one side facing the room :) well, they have the curtain you can pull, but a nice touch I thought.
Toiletries include the standard stuff.
Room has coffee maker and the usual mini-bar with food items that cost multiple times the MRP. No complaint that as thats's pretty much standard fare in all 4+ star properties.

The bed was comfortable and the beddings clean.
The overall hotel property is well maintained and clean.

Breakfast was complementary in our package. The breakfast spread was impressive with Live counter makings eggs to order and dosas.

The restaurant has dinner buffet, priced at 600+. Not bad for the choice. They also serve a-la-carte multi-cuisine recipes. I ordered soup and one Falafal dish and liked it too.

My only small grudge was the service at the restaurant which was inconsistent at best.
On couple of days, it was prompt and very attentive. On other days it simple fell apart. It took 3 reminders to get things.


The hotel is located around 4-5 km from major tourist attractions like the tank bund, Hussain Sagar and the NTR and Lumbini gardens. Beware of the local auto-wallas though as we found they charge ridiculous. Not ready to come on meters and asking fare of Rs.100 to start with. We needed to negotiate hard, not always successful!

Overall, I would rate this as a nice hotel to stay with the family.
