“Awesome friendly hotel”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

As a five star Taj Property really nothing to complain, great lobby, wonderful room. The hotel is on a lake front which gives the lake a nice character. The service is awesome. After a long time I tried swimming and the swimming pool attendant was very helpful. The lobby restaurant where the breakfast is served is a little small. The road to the hotel is a shopping centre so that is nice too.

Room Tip: higher floors are better

The location of the property is its biggest advantage,situated in the middle of the city overlooking the banjara lake which is now in a sad state , of course synonymous with the taj brand staff serves with a smile and the rooms are clean and tidy .The rooms on the eight floor giving you something to look at, outside the window , with karachi bakery situated across the street and paradise restaurant at a throw away , it is the best place to stay if on a short trip to Hyderabad.

Room Tip: rooms on the eighth floor

Have been staying in Taj Banajara for more than 10 years now .. started in 1997 and used to be a regular here for many years :-) ... City has evolved and this property from being premier has become a old & quaint one :-)

Is Located in a central locality and makes travel within Hyd easy & effective. Rooms are clean and checkin / checkour process is smooth . Bar is decent and breakfast buffet is quite adequate :-) the lake used to be a big pull many years back but is in a sad state now ... Taj has to do something about this !!!

Room service & overall service is pretty good and overall a worth while place to stay ... However the rates is something that you should consider .. If you are a regular or have a corporate tie up then this is a great place to stay as it becomes cost effective as well

I have a great memony trip whenever i visit this place and so have been staying here over the years

Room Tip: Try and lake a room with a lake view .. inspite of being dirty the view is good and makes for a grea...

For my Hyderabad visit on Feb 25-26, 2013, my office travel desk booked me here. The reviews at Tripadvisor were not that all good for this hotel. I still decided to trust in Taj brand.

To be honest, it was not all that bad. Room was clean and the food was very good. On the downside, the property is very old and evidently visible everywhere, light musky smell at the corridor and inside the rooms "if you look for it", and the lake in front is dead and highly stinky. Wifi internet is charged at about Rs.200 an hour and I could not find a LAN port inside the room. A local call from the room is charged at Rs.7 a min and STD attracts a charge of about Rs.55 a min!!

Room window was locked, and that was good considering the stinky lake and insects.
Service response was quick. The biggest advantage is that it is situated at Banjara Hills, a prime location at Hyderabad. The room rent for this is lower than other TAJ in the city, but not significantly lower. For a few hundred extra, you could get a room at the newer properties such as Marriott.

Taj Banjara is situated right next to a lake like water body that is pretty green with algae and looks like it might be infested with mosquitoes, however proper fumigation ensures that the mosquitoes dont bite you. The lobby looks absolutely like that of a business hotel!

Now the rooms.....The size of the room was pretty decent (just like a business hotel), had a fairly large closet, bathroom was spacious too!

The breakfast spread could have been better, however the indian food i ordered (cottage cheese made in red tomato gravy and garlic naan) was quite tasty.

Hotel's location is very central, the staff is courteous and extremely helpful. Would however prefer staying at Taj Krishna next time.

Room Tip: Take a room facing the main road, the view is better than overlooking "green" lake.

This used to be the name of the Hotel until it was taken over by the Taj Group. The hotel is almost 30 years old and the first 5star hotel in twin cities. This hotel was the favourite destination of all filmstars&cricketers once upon a time. The property looks a bit old though.The rooms are good and the room service is also nice. It has a Nightclub"Underdeck"which is a bit crowded over the weekend. The best part of the hotel is its restaurant"Kabab-e-Bahar"which is next to the lake. We have been to the restaurant numerious times as the food over here is really delicious. However, the foul smell from the lake is a bit disappointing. This hotel would need a bit of renovation and things would fall in place.

Stayed for three nights and must say the property is not of Taj group standards. To begin with the location is in Banjara hills which is central and the property is located next to dirty stinking lake. The service was fine, be it checkin and checkout, room service, housekeeping etc. all smiling and effficient. The rooms are run down , quiet old style and all the linen , Tv etc was outdated. The buffet breakfast is also average ,not a star hotel spread.
