Spent 3 days at Taj Falaknuma. The Taj has does a wonderful job restoring this beautiful palace. A must do here is the palace tour. Very interesting. The hotel also has wonderful view of the old city as well. Do go to Charminar, an iconic symbol which is not too far from the hotel. Don't miss the wonderful Hyderabadi food!

Let us share with you some more interesting information about the Palace.

The restoration has almost took ten years, and the Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces has infused new life into the Falaknuma Palace, which is ready to resume its status as Hyderabad’s most exclusive address to offer its guests a glimpse of the regal lifestyle of the Nizams who governed the legendary city of Hyderabad. After 10 years of extensive restoration, and preserving the priceless art and artifacts, Taj Falaknuma Palace now welcomes guests – completely restored, renewed and reinstated to its former glory.

Went there for marriage function and lunch ceremony. The palace is exquisitely decorated in its old charm and grandeur.
We took the entire tour of the palace and were stunned to see the luxury and interiors that have been painstakingly restored by the TAJ group ever since they have taken over the management of this palace.
The highlight was the 101 seat - loooooong - dining table and the room having been built with acoustics so that the seat number 1 could easily converse with the seat number 101 guest !!!!

Room Tip: walk-ins are not accepted and hence it is mandatory to book and visit.

Experience the nawab life in this gem of a palace . Meticulously restored by taj group , it takes you in a different world away from the chaos of old Hyderabad streets .

Service is attentive , although some of the staff could do with more training considering that this is a palace property charging top notch bucks

Check if there are no conventions at this place during the stay , it's a total put off and the palace looses its charm with so many of these people around . We were fortunate when we checked in as the convention had got over the same day .

Rooms are nice and spacious , personally even the basic palace rooms are much better than the royal suites or historical suites

Italian restaurant is okay but the indian restaurant has excellent food .

Experience the check in with the horse carriage , rose petals etc . Superb stuff .
