In Hyderabad’s Banjara Hills, the Taj Krishna is an opulent retreat that has played host to the likes of Princess Diana and the Dalai Lama. The traditional interiors feature plenty of chandeliers, heavy (remote-controlled) drapes, dark wood furniture and intricate fabric details on cushions and beds. Deluxe Rooms are geared toward business travelers, with spacious work areas, while Taj Club Rooms include butler service and access to the club lounge for all-day drinks and snacks; some have views of Hussain Sagar Lake. Dining options cover Indian, Chinese and international cuisines in three restaurants, and the bar offers live music. Relax by the hotel’s outdoor pool or tee off at a nearby course; a round of golf can be arranged by the concierge.
In the Area
Hyderabad, “City of Pearls” is the place to shop for fabric, at the Pochampally fabric stores, and, of course, pearls. If you’re in the mood for history, you’ll want to explore the 16th-century Golconda Fort and the Salar Jung Museum, which has a varied collection of art and objects from around the world. It’s one of only three national museums in India.
How to Get There
Stayed there for four nights. Check in was average. The lobby is very well decorated with beautiful paintings and fresh flowers. The room was good and the housekeeping staffs were courteous. The food was of highest quality particularly the restaurant GOLDEN DRAGON was excellent. The view from our room was superb. We could see the Hussain Sagar Lake from our room. The sleep quality was superb. Only thing that i missed was the personal touch, which i got in Taj Chandigarh.
normally this hotel is pretty expensive but since I was staying over a weekend, the rates were affordable. it has a huge swimming pool lined wit 3 jacuzzis, warm and cold. besides, they have a steam room near the gym.
The hotel has a royal feel to it. The 24 hour restaurant’s multi cuisine buffet spread was mouth watering as well as the pastas made by Chef Shreyash . Chef Shreyash was also helpful with the choice of food we wanted according to our palette.
The pool area is really beautiful with 3 jacuzzi’s. Coming back soon just for the sheer royal feel of the hotel.
A good luxury hotel in the heart of the city with good Hyderabadi cuisine. Though a old property, the room was refurbished and was elegant and cosy. The lobby area is spacious and looks grand. Very spacious property with all facilities.
Overall, very unlikely I will stay or recommend Taj Krishna to my friends. Staff has a very poor understanding of English. There was a constant banging on the walls and drilling throughout the stay until 10:30 pm each day. Food is ok but extremely expensive. Finally, I’ve asked to charge me in rupees and they charged me in dollars which caused over $100 overpay. Totally aweful experience.
