“A good hotel with good staff and the all-important free wifi everywhere”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

Our stay was quite enjoyable. The reception staff were good. The young woman in black at the customer relations desk next to reception was fantastic. She was by far the best in the hotel and better than staff in other hotels we stayed in. She was just wonderful with advice and taxis and info about Hyderabad.

We had a very good day sightseeing trip by taxi from the hotel travel desk and the driver was brilliant. Their prices were high and 1050 IR for a taxi to the airport was ridiculous. We got a yellow cab for 550 IR with the help of the woman in black mentioned above.

Room was a good size for two - twin beds. Housekeeping and room service were good though some of the boys were a little forgetful. The main reason I chose the hotel was the not-too-far-out position and the free wifi everywhere.

Breakfast and breakfast staff were good. But I saw two live cockroaches in the breakfast room one morning. Very dangerous. The staff were apologetic.

Room Tip: High up overlooking pool ( away from the flyover)

We had a very nice overnight stay at this hotel. While the check in was quick, the staff was very friendly and courteous. Front desk staff are ready to help you going extra mile. Rooms are large and spotlessly clean and very well equipped. The food at the restaurant was of a very wide variety and very good and we really enjoyed our meal. The staff in the restaurant was very attentive and courteous and the service was excellent. Overall, a very pleasant stay and very good value for money.

After 15 years I got a chance to stay again at Golkonda again. It is truly an amazing feeling, The hotel staff were very warm and courteous as they were earlier too. Look like rooms are renovated and looking much better like any other 5 star hotel. The food is great and you get good authentic chutney for break fast. Over all it was a fantastic experience.

It's the second time during my annual trips in India I stay in this Hotel.
I had the possibility to have a diner with friends , selecting a good buffet and special steack-beef. Good breakfast and this time a quieter internal room. It's my intention to select The Golkonda Hotel for future stay in Hyderabad.

For a business purpose, my organisation had put me up in the hotel... stayed there for around 3 days (from 17th to 19th Feb), and I narrate below the salient features of my experience ('+' for good, and '-' for negative aspects of the experience):

+ The location is really good, and is centrally connected to most parts of the city. Also, because of a flyover, this place is now close to the airport as well.
+ The property is in good condition.
- The staff is unresponsive. If you ask for something by calling the operator, please be assured that you'll have to wait for at least 1-2 reminders before u get it.
- Maintenance isn't good. E.g., the electric kettle in my room wasn't working, and so I clearly asked for a replacement. First, they took ages to send a person. Even when the person came, he came only to 'check' if the kettle was working or not! By the time I got a replacement, the kettle didn't make sense as I was already running late for a pre-scheduled meeting.
- Their telephone directory doesn't have a mention of '4' being the 'room service'. This leaves an occupant to call up '2/5' (no one ever picked up '2'). Without exception, their standard response on calling up '5' would b that they have informed the room service. This circular loop was really annoying.
- Even after I had informed well in advance (approx 30 minutes beforehand), the reception desk was not ready with all paperwork while I was checking-out. After I voiced discontent to my employer's representative (already present there) and he intervened, that things were settled fast, and I could finally leave for the airport.
