As I entered the elegant reception of the Novotel hotel located a stone's throw away from Hyderabad airport, I first noticed the airline Kiosk for flight check-in which I found so convenient for any traveller/tourist. Well, the only hotel in India to have one, Novotel Hyderabad Airport has several other unique takeaways making it an ideal venue not only for business travellers but also for families on a holiday.
Situated in the Shamshabad area of the city, Novotel Hyderabad Airport is definitely one of the best bets to stay when in the city of Nizams. The hotel offers a total of 305 rooms, about 7000 sq feet of flexible space for meetings and conferences, dedicated areas for outdoor and indoor activities as well as multiple superlative dining options.

All rooms are spacious and equipped with all modern amenities along with free high-speed internet access. Apart from an ergonomic work area, the rooms also have a satellite TV, coffee/tea making facilities and a mini bar. Details of the room, bathroom and security features available can be obtained here.
The best part of the hotel is the availability of the suite room as well as interconnected room(s) that are apt for large families. Also, there is a Premier executive room that is the epitome of luxury wherein guests can access the Premier Lounge with complimentary refreshments, happy hour etc.

With multiple options, guests are treated to a delectable variety of cuisines that can be enjoyed in a pleasant, friendly setting. The Square is the hotel’s multi cuisine 24 hour restaurant serving a lavish buffet with a plethora of live counters.
The amicable nature of the staff and the additional alfresco seating only complement the whole experience.

There are also cycles available if you want to flex those muscles and enjoy the large expanses of green outdoor spaces that are available extensively within the premises.
One of the best aspects of Novotel Hyderabad Airport for me was that in spite of all the luxury, there is a great focus on eco-friendly practices including the practice of recycling and energy saving techniques. There are eco-friendly products to clean the rooms, recycling of batteries and paper is taken up on a large scale and food waste is recycled for compost.
In fact, there is a whopping 3000 sq feet organic vegetable garden that has flourishing crops of banana, mint, herbs, chillies, guavas, lemons, tomatoes etc.
