As I said in the last post, here's my view of the hotel we stayed at - Novotel Hyderabad Airport. There are 2 Novotels in Hyderabad - Convention Centre & Airport. To begin with the best thing was its access...
At just 5km from the airport, located in the outskirts of Hyderabad, its perfect for business travellers. However for tourists it may not be that convenient coz from the hotel, the city is about 20km away. Free shuttle was available almost twice an hour all day to & fro Airport. The free wifi had a reasonable speed and high speed wifi was available upon an extra pay!
Apart from this another unique here was these huge bed like seating arrangements. See, the check-out time is 12 noon, however the luggage can be left in cloak room for the day. After getting back from work/sightseeing, these lounges can be used to rest for a while before heading to airport!!!
On either side of the reception are the restaurant 'Square' and a smaller banquet hall with open garden to its side. The food was just impeccable. When you're in Hyderabad, you have to have the authentic Hyderabadi Dum Biriyani. I'd rather say you haven't had a life if you haven't tasted an authentic Hyderabadi Dum Biriyani and here it was awesome!!! It was the 2nd best I've ever tasted (the best was at Nizam's Kitchen in Bangalore).
And when in Hyderabad dessert would definitely mean Shahi Tukda and Double ka Meetha! There weren't any eggless cakes though. I know I have some high expectations!!!
P.S: I was invited by Indiblogger on behalf of Tata Motors to experience Tata Hexa and stay at Novotel. However the opinions are my own and this post does not to advertise the product/service. A very big thanks to Indiblogger for this wonderful opportunity.
