“Out of this world”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2014

We were there for a family wedding and had the entire hotel to ourselves. I have to say that the staff at the TAJ outdid themselves. I prefer the Taj when there is one, and so have very high expectations, but the Falaknuma, WOW....

Falaknuma as the name suggests is superlative in every sense! From the time a chauffeur driven vehicle fetches you from the airport to the buggy ride and rose petal welcome to the rooms and deliciously delectable food, you are treated like Royalty. The property itself is full of antiques from the Nizam's era but every modern amenity is available. The gardens are meticulously maintained.
The staff is not only knowledgable about Hyderabad or the palace but ever so friendly and wanting to please. It is hospitality at a superior level. All in all returning to regular grind takes some effort!
I would recommend a stay here as a lifetime experience...

Room Tip: try for a historical suite if budget permits or for a room in the courtyard near the Nizam's sui...

This is a heritage hotel that has been converted from a palace to a hotel. Loved the place, the whole arrangement, the staff, the decor and the food. The kids had a wonderful time playing around the open spaces.

Sumptuous food in nawabi style!
Not to miss the guided tour of the palace, the buggy ride and their cocktails atleast!
Lamb preparations are good!
Dahi ke kebabs (if i can say) were the show stopper.
All in all a good place to visit atleast once if you are in hyderabad.

Wonderful historical place beautifully preserved. The service is perfect and everything is cured in any little detail. I loved the huge breakfast on the terrace and the sweet sound of the sitar at sunset.

Have stayed at mostly all the Palace hotels in india and Falaknuma is clearly the best amongst all. Everthing in the palace is original and the hotel guests can explore and feel exactly the way the Nizam's lived, nothing is out of bounds. The jade room , the longest dining table which can seat 101 people, the library , chandeliers etc are just the perfect setting . The sufi music in the evening at the terrace with the background of the city has a magical effect . The food especially the Indian was excellent . The swimming pool has a great location and very relaxing.
They have a champagne palace tour everyday and the palace historian explains each and every aspect of the palace in great detail, they also have a Hi tea daily at the Nizam's suite which is very impressive.
What makes it special is the Taj Service , the staff is exremely polite and efficient and every need of yours is taken care of .. we loved our stay and will be back cerainly again .. a must visit for anyone who want to spend a good long weekend ..

Room Tip: We were upgarded to a suite so lived like royalty
