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.

  • 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
  • A truly amazing hotel with staff that are amazing. We celebrated a double birthday and the hotel could not have done more. We had birthday greetings written in flower petals, cakes and special menus for our celebration dinner. The heritage suites are huge and totally private, you have a whole wing of the building to yourself. The pool encircles an old banyan tree and is very relaxing. But it is the staff that make it perfect!
  • Best luxury heritage hotel in city. You can feel like NIZAM during the stay here. Beautiful view of city from 2000ft above. Best time to visit this place is post monsoon, September to January. During summer time this place will be very hot. If you want to just visit the place better to book for a lunch or dinner, than staying in the property. They charge around rs4000 per person for dinner during weekends.
  • Visiting the Taj Falaknuma Palace is a once in a lifetime experience. You will never forget. We especially recommend the tour through the palace. The overall experience is the best. You are taken to the palace by horse cart. They shower you with rose pedals, every where you go, they ask you, if you are okay, what you need. We can highly recommend the hotel - it is unique. The breakfast on the Terrasse is unforgettable. They have two restaurants- Italian and Indian - we tried both - very good. The pool is romantic. Overall very satisfied.
  • This is the crown jewel of Hyderabad! Opulent, awe inspiring and authentically antique. Arguably this is one of the most well-maintained /restored palace hotel of the world. Every corner of the place oozes luxury and history. I am sure Taj knows about this and does not leave any page unturned to make your visit special. A guided tour to the place by absolutely well-informed hotel staff is their way of showing off! Of course in a good way 😄. Food is just fabulous but the best thing is overall experience. Sunset is the time to be there to see Hyderabad disappearing in dark and replaced by those twinkling stars on earth. Though, the steep cost may prohibit many,guys this should be one of those bucket list items. High tea, sitting at the balcony of Taj Falaknuma! Followed by a personal gourmet dinner....
