Taj Banjara is at an Ideal and most preferred location at Banjara Hills, Hyderabad . The rooms are clean, wuite location , staff very helpful . Checkin and checkout was smooth . Will stay again for sure !
This is a pretty old property by the looks of it but what makes it great are the people. Warm, hospitable, eager to help.. all the things that make your stay extra special. The rooms are pretty good as well but what probably is the only negative is the lake. It smells pretty bad and despite all windows and doors being closed the smell permeates into the room. Not the fault of the hotel but is definitely an issue.The hotel is pretty central and about 40 mins from the airport. Most parts of the city are also pretty accessible from the hotel. OLA is convenient to use as well. Most cabs are 10 to 15 mins away. Breakfast spread is good. Overall great value for money.
The Taj Banjara is possibly a property that the Taj group hotels have forgotten about. The check in was smooth. The ambience of the hotel was very average. The carpeting in the corridors leading to the room are all worn out. The rooms are is bad condition. The upholstery of the sofa and the beds in the room really need to be changed. The taps and showers are really old. They should at least clean and polish these. Even one or two star properties have better interiors. The saving grace is the hospitality offered by the staff. They are helpful and the warmth of the hospitality extended by them is the only reason you could consider staying at Taj Banjara. I hope the Taj group either rebrands this hotel so that it does not carry the Taj brand name (which stands for a particular standard) or improves the interiors of this hotel asap.
The hotel is centrally located in the city, opposite the Banjara Lake. The lake itself is a shadow of its former self and as I understand is currently being revamped and cleaned. The hotel is old and needs a major renovation but for now, what it lacks in infra & amenities is made up by the staff’s hospitality. Its no surprise its pricing is so aggressive given its age and the presence of Taj Krishna and Taj Deccan nearby. Food is just fine, though may not WoW you.
I stayed at Taj for the first time at the Taj Banjara hotel. It was a great experience for the whole family and we were very well taken care of by the hotel staff. We are offered a room upgrade as well.
I have come and stay here again and again because my sister comes stays here for shooting films ...first of all I just don't like the idea of a five star hotel at least in India not having a jet spray in the toilet and this is one big example of it... main entrance thankfully is wheelchair friendly and they have one floor the first floor which is wheelchair friendly I have not been to the other floors so I don't know much ....you cannot get onto the poolside as there are steps ...you can go towards the back yard because there is a way from the kitchen through steep slopes which can get you to the back yard... you cannot even visit there kabab e Bahar restaurant because they have steps to go down there otherwise everything is so great about the hotel ... there is a way through the pastry counter for you to get into the restaurant for your breakfast and lunch without a step so that is not a problem ...the staff is amazing they have good amount of choices for your meals and they take the feedback very positively and do rectify the dish if you say there is a problem... so all in all its a great hotel to be in but everytime I have come here I have told them to make it more wheelchair friendly and yes they could have more activities for kids maybe some rooms with games or something for the children ....there is a pond outside the hotel building which is so stinking I am sure they could do something about it and spray some aromatic perfume or at least have it cleaned very regularly so that it does not stink so bad... if you want to go for a walk around that side don't even think about it.... they have a small temple which is really beautiful if you are religious person you can go every morning
A very nice, cosy hotel. Service from the reception to dining to security personnel is very helpful, cordial and good. If you want to swim regularly, this is not the place. Old fashioned pool is cute but there is a nauseating odour from the lake next to the hotel that is terrible. You get hit by it as soon as your car boot is opened for checking at the gate. Wish they would clean up the lake. Breakfast is decent. Could add some variety. The rooms are also old and in need of some touchups. The location makes it all worth it though. Very central location considering travelling time in Hyderabad. All in all not really a "Wah Taj" experience but not bad since sightseeing takes up a lot of your time in Hyderabad.
It would be improper to name any one person good at service. Everybody is so polite, respectful and service oriented that one gets spoilt of getting attention. The housekeeping make the room always welcoming. The breakfast spread is elaborate and has many items for everybody. The meals are equally well laid out. They have a good haleem available everyday at night. Though this is not part of buffet, it must be tried if one is haleem lover. Not to forget, they overshot my expectation by giving me very early check-in when I just requested to keep my luggage in custody until check-in. Icing on cake, they office late check out before I could request. This may not be norm always but it give clear indication that they offer it whenever they can accomodate based on availability. The water body adjoining the Hotel does have stink of stale still water but I guess, it does not belong to Taj. And it does not really bother as the stink does not come is the closed area of hotel or at reception. It is only when one goes closer to it. The municipal corporation should either hand it over to Taj or make sure(high expectations) it is maintained. Taj Banjara is highly recommended.
A true 5 stat hotel that is aging.. lake outside smells and thats what made it lose its one star. Else the hotel offers you everything that you can possibly ask from a true 5 star hotel. Rooms were spacious enough.
I visited Taj Banjara on Oct 16, 2017 for two nights. I can not describe how bad the property is! The room was smelly, the toilet was bad. There were no hand towels in the toilet and when I asked housekeeping about it, they said that it can only provided after 10am in the morning. Actually Housekeeping doesn’t know what they are doing. When I told hotel guys about these issues, they changed my room for one night and did try to do a few things. However I feel that there is serious training & monitoring issue at this property. I am not visiting this hotel again and I will not recommend this property to anyone.
