“it'a virtual real world!”
Reviewed February 11, 2012

I had attended a conference there in march 2011 and this was in fact my second visit, the first one's way back in 2005. This particular hotel sitara, Dolphin Hotels LTD., Ramoji Film City, Hayatnagar Mandal, Anajpur Gramam, Ranga Reddy District, Hyderabad 501512, India never fails to impress me.

Rooms are spacious, comfortable, airy with lot of natural light filtering in. Our room had a flat screen TV, a mini bar and refrigerator. Room service was excellent and there were many English speaking hotel support staff. The food was excellent as well as the choice. There were two pools on the front lawns, one for children and beginners and they sell swim gear in case you forget yours. The pools are open only for a certain period of time.

The front lobby is excellent, spacious and very grand. There are lots of fun filled activities for children. We can visit the film sets and if your are lucky you might bump into famous movie stars and can see a live film shoot in progress. This hotel experience is rejuvenating and relaxing and different from the hustle and bustle of every day's life in the inner core of the big city, Hyderabad.

Room Tip: pool side rooms are sunny

The hotel is located in the sprawling campus of Ramoji Film City. The hotel has impeccable gardens, great pool and even a glittering lobby. However, the rooms are the dampener. The furniture and furnishings in the rooms are quite outdated and need a complete change. There is a flat screen TV in the room but the choice and clarity of the channels is poor. On the positives, room service and laundry are quite cheaply priced compared to other 5* rates. Wi-fi is not free and costs Rs.100/hr or Rs. 500/day ... speeds are quite average and just about good enough for browsing and emails.If you are at Ramoji Film City, this is best hotel to stay at.

We went on a 2N3D holiday. Its good for relaxation and great fun for kids. The spa is good and the attendance at the pool ( trainer ) is something which i never expected. The food is very tasty and the overall warmness of the staff make you feel like you are an VIP. The staff escorting for the tour are very helpful. At places you dont know where to go and from where the line starts but we need not worry they will serach you and take you to the right place. The evening diwali celebration in the open garden was a real fun. The best is fun rides for the kids and are not that expencive as compared to other metro cities. Childrens and even elders loved it. All the places are well connected. Very neat and clean place.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the pool has very good view

So, I stayed for almost 5 months in the hotel. and that should make my review very valuable but also makes it a bit biased because I knew everybody from the housekeeping staff to the shift managers. Apart from being a business trip, I was also doing this trip solo, so this review should also be helpful for single female travellers who I actually didn't see in the hotel much.
I'd rate a hotel first by the ease of booking which is amongst the very few things I can complain about for Sitara. I don't think their online booking facility is any good.
They don't offer a free pick-up or drop but have an excellent travel desk that offers you the most reliable drivers round the clock.

Reception:The reception is an unusually 'quotidian impersonal small-talk' free experience. Some of the managers will really make you feel like it is their most real interest to ensure you have a good stay and not just practise rehearsed, "How was your day Madam" lines on you.
The hotel looks excellent. The reception area though a bit too grandiose immediately catches your attention and as you go up to your room in the wood-crafted lifts through the customised corridors on every floor to rooms that again look different on every floor.

Rooms: The rooms are good and the hotel is more than willing to pander to your specific little choices about say shampoos, choice of bottled water brand, choice of newspaper, ways of arranging your stuff in your room etc. I must say I was spoiled crazy by the housekeeping and I now have a tough time dealing with any other hotel! The toilets are sized just about enough but I have been more than comfortable with the basics like hot water, clean towels etc.

Clean Linen: It must take a lot for Sitara to ensure I had spotlessly clean sheets and towels every single day of my stay and I can still not believe how they achieved this feat!

Food: The food is great, whatever is there on their menu, they know how to make it perfectly. Especially the Hyderabadi cuisine and the Continental dishes. Amongst my must recommends is the Mulligatawny Soup! The restaurant- Galaxy also offers the most friendly service possible and you can meet the chefs any time for any specific requirements, complaints, raving.. And, the complementary breakfast is no sham, they offer all kinds of quality, quantity and a good deal of variety.

The Gym, the Pool and the Club House: Kept exceptionally clean and so well maintained by very good trainers. I will miss the gym forever I think.I am also reminded of the cycle-rental service which allows you to tour the film city on 2 wheels.

Connectivity: The hotel is now about 45 minutes from the airport but really, you wouldn't go to Sitara or the Ramoji film city for 'connectivity to Hyderabad'. Apart from the hotels taxis, there is almost no public transport. You would go there to escape Hyderabad or like me to visit a place outside Hyderabad on the Vizag highway.
Internet and wifi: This is my biggest complaint for the hotel. They have poor internet connectivity and it is available at exorbitant rates.

Fan Brigade: For all of us star-struck fans the hotel offers a lot of opportunities to bump into stars from the film industry and rub shoulders with them as most of them who shoot in the Film City choose to stay there.

I could write on and on about the hotel!
All in all, I'd heartily recommend the hotel! Enjoy your stay!

I stayed there for 3 nights. I loved the location + accessibility to their attractions. I liked their pool pls banquets. We had a party at their club house. It was nice. Perfect for a family weekend gateway.
