This is a socalled Luxury hotel and is definitely worth its 5 stars. For Indian standards it's very expensive! The staff is very friendly and very service oriented. There are three restaurants in the hotel (Chinese, Indian and mixed) especially the Chinese is recommended (shredded chicken in garlic). Recommended in the area: Golconda fort, Birla temple, Salar Jung Museum, Qtub Shah tombs. With the city tour of one day you see them all.
