With a stay at Taj Falaknuma Palace in Hyderabad (Falaknuma), you’ll be close to Nehru Zoological Park and Charminar. This 5-star hotel is within close proximity of Chowmahalla Palace and Sudha Cars Museum.

I am a tad late with this review, I visited a month ago, but this just goes to show how memorable my stay at Taj Falaknuma in Hyderabad, India was. The former palace of the Nizam of Hyderabad, once regarded as the richest man in the world, the estate is gorgeous. It is an exceptional hotel and provides an exceptional experience. The breakfast is lovely, the restaurants in situ are wonderful, I tried the Indian cuisine. The staff is fantastic, they are obviously proud to work at the Taj and contribute to creating the exclusive atmosphere. I would Iike to express my gratitude to the reception staff for being exceptionally kind on my last day there: I received sudden news about the loss of a family member, and the staff went out of their way to be helpful and accommodating! I felt profoundly touched, thank you!

Has been a dream to Dine at the Taj Falaknuma Palace since I heard the Story of the Greatest Ruler of Deccan-Hyderabad.
Have read in books about the palace and the Royal Life of Nizam. No words to describe the beauty of this Palace and the Imported Collections from throughout the World.
Amazing view of the City from Gol Bungalow and the Ancient Sculptures adds beauty to this amazing Palace.
Nevertheless the 101 Dining Table, unfortunately we couldn't see it as it was booked for a Private Party.
Great Hospitality by the Taj Falaknuma Staff starting from the Entry on Horse-Drawn Carriage till leaving the palace in style.
Now, Special Thanks to "HemaSantosh" for his Service throughout the Dinner. Cool Person with Great Experience and his suggestions for food were all awesome.
Thanks Everyone for their Kind Hospitality.

Sharing few of the clicks taken at the Palace.
