Fabulous experience
Reviewed 6 hours ago

Very good facility highly enjoyable The gala dinner that was arranged for my 50th marriage anniversary was excellent food and service was excellent. I am happy that I opted for Falaknuma Palace for my celebrations. Thanks Falaknuma and it’s staff for making my stay memorable. The place tour in particular was a great experience and introduction with royalty you are given royal treatment.

Excellent experience for Hi-tea
Reviewed 5 days ago

We went for hi-tea and it was the most luxurious experience ever. First there was a tour of the palace which has many british influences, then we were brought to a cosy restaurant where our hi-tea was served. There was piano playing in the background and the servers were very attentive and provided wonderful service. The food was tasty and pretty filling. Recommend not to eat before that. A great way to experience Hyderabad if the outdoors heat is too much, while learning about the history of the Nizam at the same time.

An unforgettale experience.

Last year we stayed at the Taj Lake Palace in Udaipur and I wrote, one of the best hotels in the world and unforgettable.
This year I can say only the same about this hotel. There is no lake, but the palace is located on the top of a hill with phantastic views over the city of Hyderabad. The whole hill is the property of the hotel, so you have to leave your car at the main gate down the hill. They bring you up to the palace with a horse carriage, where you were awaited with a shower of rose petals and a warm welcome. This palace is so nice and huge, you have to make a guided tour to see all the beautiful places inside and out. Our room was only perfect, huge and beautiful, with a huge bathroom with seperated bathtube, shower and toulet.
After dinner we were awaited by a beautifully prepared bathtube with rose petals. For dinner we took the terrasse of the restaurant with a phantastic view over the illuminated city, a dream location.
Food and red wines were very delicious and all the people of the staff were as perfect as expected. Not to forget the very nice and quiet pool for relaxing in the afternoon.
One of my highlights was the last breakfast before we checked out. It was 3:50 am and 3 people served a complete breakfast including omelettes, salmon and a glass of champagne, unbelievable.

IS THIS VALUE FOR MONEY?
Reviewed 1 week ago

my son booked a dinner for me and my wife on my birthday on 11th May 2019. I think he paid some Rs.24000 for two of us. We were received well by the Hotel staff.. the horse cart ride was good. There was a palace tour at 7 pm. The place was like a furnace. by the time we fished the tour we were sweating very bad. Though were booked in Gol Bungalow for dinner it was impossible to sit as the air coolers were an excuse for cool air. The staff was kind to move us into the restaurant. There is no drink served. Upon asking they gave a glass of Indian wine. The 6 course meal was good. khawali was very shot but entertaining.
When I left the place, I was wondering if the whole experience was worth the money? Somewhere I felt that the whole experience was overpriced. I am not saying they should reduce the price but somewhere the guest should feel that it is worth.

Excellent property
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

The most beautiful property by the Taj so far with the most courteous staff. We had an infant along and they all went out of their way to ensure that we were comfortable.
There is a special menu for kids which was of a great help. Exceptionally beautifully place with the kindest staff. Definitely recommended for those who are considering this as a holiday option.
