“Pretty but old”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

This is a very pretty Taj property located in the heart of the city and is probably everyone's favourite when visiting Hyderabad but doesn't offer the modern facilities and utilitarian value of the Westin. The television sets are old, without any USB port and the breakfast is edible at best with not much of a selection. The staff and service, as with most Taj properties, is spot on though. I tried the Haleem with sheermaal which came highly recommended, and while appetizing, it didn't match up to the Haleem I've had at the Oberoi in Mumbai.

If you are the kind of traveler who prefers modern interiors, functionality and high glass windows sans heritage property type frills and thrills then I'd recommend the Westin over this hotel.

Room Tip: Try not to pick the room next to the elevator. I was given one even after announcing during check-in...

Best Taj Hotel. The lobby is simply nice with a spaces lobby, elegant, stunning. In the lobby there's a bar where you can just sit by and listen to the live music and spend a quality time. The room's are very good. The morning breakfast is splendid. Hassle free and quick check-in out check-out. Quite an exotic place the Taj Krishna. And the hotel is located centrally in the city and is quite near to the famous places of the city.

The Hotel is clearly one of the better ones in Hyderabad. The lobby and the rooms are very nice. Rooms are business friendly as well with the placement of power sockets on the work-table, etc. The general service level continues to be at the level expected of a Taj e.g. I had sent them my boarding pass to print and the same was delivered to me in my room in less than 10 mins.
The location is also very good, right in the middle of Banjara Hills.
We had dinner at the GOlden Dragon which was a disappointment - for the quality of food and more importantly the quality of service. I have eaten at the other Golden Dragon restaurants in Mumbai and Chennai and the food is far superior and the service standards such that you cannot find a fault. Whereas here, the staff was not willing to accept their fault but argue back with the guests.

In the lobby there's a bar where you can just sit by and listen to the live music and spend a quality time. And the enitre hotel if you would explore you would be just amazed to see how beautiful it is. The sculptures are so beautilful to look at.

The old times look of the hotel will just simply want you to stare and explore. The room is very good. Its obvious that there won't be any flaws because its Taj.

The morning breakfast is splendid. Do try the sausages they're just awsome. Their service is just what you would expect. Hassle free and quick check-in out check-out. Quite an exotic place the Taj Krishna. Everything about this hotel is so charming that it will leave you spell bound especially the lobby. And the hotel is located centrally in the city and is quite near to the famous karachi bakery of the city.

Its just splendid and in my opinion the best Taj in India.

I was travelling on business, and my spouse was enjoying her short vacation with me. So I chose TAJ, a lot heard and talked about hotel chain in India. The room was Okay, (probably we were expecting something Grand after seeing their lobby) and the service was good but at $200 per night we were expecting something ecstatic. To fill in this gap, came the breakfast. They had a wide spread of Indian and Continental foods at "Al-Fresco". The "Alu-Paratha" was out of this world. We ordered for room-service one night, and there too they amazed us arranging romantic candle light setting in the room. The complementary hand made chocolate after dinner added to our enjoyment. There is also restaurant called "Firdaus" in the hotel, which serves a delightful platter of "kebabs" and "Hyderabadi Biriyani" by the cool blue pool lit by tiki torches. So, over this stay of one week; even if have put on few pounds extra, there is no guilty feeling for it. There is one shop for art and crafts called "Taj Khazana" which keeps beautiful miniature Mughal dynasty paintings, if you have house that good, your walls will love themor sure. They also keep authentic replicas of "Amrapali Jewels" designed by the queens of royal families. The walk down to the shops, terrace gardens and wide lobby, with Marble statues, gives a very palatial feeling, and where you can treat yourself like a king with good food and wine.
