Taj Falaknuma Palace, Hyderabad

4.5
Relive the grandeur of days gone by during a visit to Taj Falaknuma Palace, an ornate old building that now acts as a luxury hotel. Completed in 1893 according to a design by an English architect, the building has several interesting external features, including the fact that the whole thing is meant to look like a scorpion when seen from above, with two wings acting as the stingers. Take a tour of the erstwhile palace to see the Italian and Tudor influenced interiors, then treat yourself to a spot of high tea--a meal much enjoyed by the upper classes during the colonial era. Put Taj Falaknuma Palace into our Hyderabad online holiday planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • One of the best Taj properties I have visited. The sheer charm and feel of royalty makes this place stand out. Not to forget the famous Taj hospitality. So was there for my birthday lunch and they took care of every request. The food, the tour, the ambience everything lived up to the name. Finally they got me a surprise cake and bouquet of roses...just made it so special!
  • One of the excellent palaces in the city of Hyderabad, Taj Falaknuma makes the guests stay pleasurable with its authentic service and matchless hospitality. It has 60 rooms which are rendered with tea/coffee maker, electronic safe, mini bar, intercom and satellite TV. The hotel also features conference hall, swimming pool, health club, spa and library. It is indeed a perfect place for both leisure and business tourists. Having excellent dining options, the hotel brings the best taste of both the worlds to satisfy the craving of the visitors.
  • Very good place. Cane here for a birthday celebration and everything went correct. Awesome place. They provide a heritage walk before the dinner and later cake is complimentary if you are celebrating any occasion.
  • If you ever wondered how the royalty must have lived in years gone by. This place will make you feel like a royal king/ Queen/ prince or princess. Taj hospitality with the regal set up. It’s breathtaking and the experience is over the top comfortable. Team Taj will go above and beyond to ensure your stay is impeccable.
  • Wonderful place. Enjoyed a lot. The food was awesome although expensive. The place has its own roots deep in history. The place depicts an excellent work of art and craft. Each small corner has been created with care and patience. Overall it was a mesmerizing experience
