Taj Falaknuma Palace, Hyderabad

4.3
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.

  • This is by far the best Heritage Luxury Hotel I have had the privilege of visiting!! I mean, words just can't describe the beauty that lies within. Every single thing is a piece of art. The food, the service, the palace tour by Mr. Faiz, the palace itself is an experience which is beyond imagination if not visited and seen for yourself. It pleases your eyes and soul.
  • One of the marvellous structure and a beautiful palace I have been to. It's so mesmerizing one cannot get enough of it . The interiors and the design carved in it is so fascinating. And if you can afford it, I would recommend a must visit to this palace if your in Hyderabad :)
  • Excellent place. The effort in the small touches to maintain authenticity of the ambiance is amazing. The staff is excellent and are extremely courteous and proactive in their service. The food is delightful and scrumptious
  • Have high tea here and joining the tour at the palace. The guide was great in explaining the hotel history, the building in good shaped and clearly maintain well. Is good to visit, bring back the history of the past
  • Good tour of Palace, staff nicely explains history of Palace, nice spread of food. Overall experience makes one feel royal. (shortlived though :))
