Simply spectacular experience
What an amazing experience we had at the Taj Falaknuma Palace Hotel. From the second you set foot in their premises, you can sense they want to make it very special for you, and the hospitality is above and beyond. The welcome with the horse carriage, the drink and rose petals shower, everything was truly enjoyable. The building itself, beyond its history, is spectacular. The different courtyards and garden areas are gorgeous. Our package included dinner at Celeste and the restaurant manager was incredibly kind and accommodating, we had a superb dinner with no restrictions. Next day for High Tea they made sure that our special occasion celebration was beyond what we ever imagined. The special tour for guests is definitely a must (we did both, the resident and the non-resident with friends who visited the next day) From the first welcome to the last good bye and all the time along the way, everyone was incredibly kind, friendly and attentive. We stayed at the Golkonda suite, which is a very nice room and has breathtaking views. However I must point out that it's not suitable for those sensible to noise, as over the night there is constant city traffic noise and call to prayer from surrounding mosques was loud all night long. The quiet rooms in the courtyards seemed so appealing the next morning! The farewell gifts were a lovely touch that we will treasure forever. A truly remarkable experience that we will want to repeat for sure.

A once in a lifetime experience. The hospitality has to be experienced to be believed. Made us feel like royalty, with each of our wishes thoroughly taken care of, sometimes even before we expressed it. The hospitality in the dining rooms is beyond belief. Truly a magical stay

Be a king and a queen from arrival to departure.
We have been to 143 countries in the last 35 years and we must say that this hotel has the absolute best feel from beginning to end when it comes to making you feel like a king and a queen.

When you are in Falaknuma, you are the king !!
Superb experience of living through the yesteryears of Hyderabad's rich culture and history! The guided tour that was part of the stay was very informative but the only comment that I have is that pronunciation of the guide was very thick, making it not very clear especially for the foreigners who are not accustomed to Indian accent
