One of the finest experiences one can have as a 5 star vacationer or a business traveller is one I had at Radission Blu Plaza, Banjara hills. Based around 15 kms from domestic airport and right at the heart of the city and half a kilometre from GVK One, Hyderabad largest shopping mall, the 5-star Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel has 3 dining options and an outdoor swimming pool on the 2nd level. Our room on the 3rd floor 304 was overlooking the pool and had a great ambiance. It is the first experience where we enjoy the interior space more than the concern of the overlooking sights from the room window. Guests enjoy free WiFi and free parking. The lobby is tastefully decorated, the luxurious rooms have stylish modern interiors and large bay windows. All of the rooms have a flat LCD TV, a cozy sitting area and a private bathroom with a bathtub with clear view option of enjoying the room view from the bath Tub and vice versa and the rooms in itself has a luxurious space. Recreational choices include spa body massage. Travel and sightseeing plans can be made at the tour desk, which is particularly good with Samson doing the job decently for our Ramoji Film city and other locations sight seeing. Available for all-day dining, Chill restaurant serves a spread of local and international dishes, and Pan-Asian cuisine is featured at the Holy Basil. For light snacks and refreshing beverages, guests can visit Bar 41. The buffet dinner spread was enchanting with South festival on for a week and we had some sumptuous cuisines in Red Grape saran and Apan for the first time ever and it was a delight. The staff is very courteous and is ready to help and be there for your any need right up to baby sit our 2 year old child running haywire shows the warmth and cordiality of the staff. Kudos to the team Radisson. If I am getting the name right the lobby manager Sanju is in particular very apt and practical and very prompt to address one's need. We stayed for 2 nights from the 30th to 1st September 2015 and wished a longer stay, such was the hospitality. We will visit Hyderabad again just to enjoy the further warmth and a great room feel ever at a 5 star property. Just Perfect Radisson Blu Plaza is just over 1. 6 km from Hyderabad Shopping Mall and 4. 8 km from Hyderabad Train Station. It is 8. 9 km from Hussian Sagar Lake and 30. 6 km from Rajiv Gandhi International Airport If it is Hyderabad the you ought to stay at Radisson Blu Plaza and just relive our perfect experience.
We had a confirmed reservation for 2 rooms and 3 nights at the Radisson Blu Plaza, Banjara Hills. Upon arrival at the hotel we were told by the staff at the front desk that the reservation was only for one night. After showing him the copy of the reservation he said " ok I will take care". We were then asked to sit for a while until our room was ready and just to mention it was 3:30 pm and check-in starts from 2 pm. After a good 15 minutes we started to get annoyed with the service and on asking the front desk we were told it would take another 30 mins for the room to get ready. This was absolutely shocking! The staff were pretty lax and not too bothered about our situation. We were finally given our rooms after another 15 mins of waiting. Room service takes painstakingly long and they aren't even honest about it. All they say on the phone is " it's on the way sir " and it takes ages to arrive. On day 2 I left the hotel at about 11am and returned at 4pm only to find my room not made. This was absolutely unbelievable. I think even a 3 star or a budget hotel would have better alternative. Overall, I'm absolutely not satisfied with the experience. Maybe it was a one off one but I can only speak for myself. Sorry to say but I wouldn't be recommending Radisson to any of my friends/family and wouldn't stay there myself on any future trips to Hyderabad.
I love staying at this hotel. The hotel is beautiful, clean, and spacious. The staff is always friendly and helpful. Actually this is my first visit in Hyderbad. It was a really wonderful and satisfying experience staying in this hotel. First thing I liked about this hotel was it's front view. The front view is quite interesting with a blend of traditional stuffs and modern prompts, which I really liked. Then again hotel rooms are very cosy, comfortable and safe. This hotel has very good room service. All the working staffs are very nice and they always approach with a smile.
I stayed in this property for a night on 15th Sep while on a business trip to Hyderabad. I was in a business class room # 436 on a non-smoking floor and it was a wow experience. Though i had stayed there once before a few months ago and liked the place but i had not decided that i would always stay here whenever in Hyderabad. I am now sure that i would always stay there when in Hyderabad. Only the approach to hotel could be rated as average and rest everything is very good / excellent.
I visited Hyderabad for the company official meetings and all the expenses are borne by the company. It was a great experience in it. The hotel was too big. I have seen this first time. They have provided various facilities, else we can say it as all the facilities which are required. Wifi is working well. The bedroom was also big and clean. The staff was cooperative to the visitors, as they are helping in every aspects. There is also a traveller's guide which will help you in your near by travel locations. Surely, I will visit next time with family.
