Review: The BRAND NEW Le Meridien Hyderabad: The Best Hotel in the City Yet?

Background: My place of residence in Hyderabad (during visits) has been the Westin Mindspace (find my review here) for the past 6 years or so. I’ve never really ventured out to try new hotels because this hotel is by far the closest one to my aunt’s apartment and I didn’t …
