When you are in Falaknuma, you are the king !!
Superb experience of living through the yesteryears of Hyderabad's rich culture and history! The guided tour that was part of the stay was very informative but the only comment that I have is that pronunciation of the guide was very thick, making it not very clear especially for the foreigners who are not accustomed to Indian accent

Awesome experience!!
This place makes you feel like royalty. Takes you back in time.
Naresh Reddy, us1 night trip
Good 6.0
Service was excellent, but the property was a bit run down and not up to the expected standard of a Taj palace. The palace part of the property was excellent, and the interiors of the guest rooms were decent, but the rest of the property had mold, peeling paint etc. Having stayed at the Taj Lake palace and Umaid Bhawan Palace, Jodhpur. I expected more. This property is not nearly up to the standards of the other two. Still, the staff is excellent, so if you happen to be in Hyderabad it may be worth giving it a try. But don't do as we did. We flew to Hyderabad just to stay at this Taj property. It is not worth the flight.
