5oth birthday lunch at ada

I had my 50th birthday celebration lunch at Ada on 13th sep 2019. The entry in the horse carriage was awesome ! the carriage is surprisingly strong and sturdy and hence people with disabilities or old age can also give it a try !!! the only negative is that they only have one carriage operational during lunch so if you are 15 - 20 people, the carraige will have to make many rounds as at one time only 4 people can be accommodated in the carriage. the view and the central vista etc are spectacular. The restaurant was so so in terms of decor but service was great. Food was awesome ! each item in the set menu was cooked to perfection ! there was also a tour of the palace post lunch which was lovely. A must visit place at least once

Best hotel I ever stayed

The only thing better than the view and amenities is the service. The staff makes you feel like you are royalty visiting your palace. Everyone is friendly, respectful and goes out of their way to be helpful. If you ask for directions to a restaurant, you will be accompanied. When we told the staff we were sorry we were leaving the next day and would miss breakfast (which opens at 7 am), they delivered a complete meal to the room at 6:15 the next morning.

We spent each day we were in Hyderabad with friends, so we missed hotel events such as tours and special meals. However, the meals we had included breakfast and several dinners. The food was first rate and the service, first rate plus.

We plan on returning.

Am amazing royal experience !!

Exceptional visit to the Taj Falaknuma Palace!!

This is a sensational property overlooking the city. We were upgraded to a historic suite with modern amenities. We frequently dined at the two fine dining restaurants and the bar. We felt that the service was attentive and with a smile. And the spa and gym were adequate for our needs. We also used the hotel car for touring and excursions. Amongst the best hotel experiences in the world.
