Very exotic spread of comfort, and hospitality. Hotel management institute next door ensures plenty of trainees eager to please you thoroughly. Washroom was run of the mill kind, a facelift is needed. Food is average, service at the restaurant needs improvement. Overall a good place to stay, could be better after a little renovation, and better food quality.

Truly an amazing experience. Friendly staff eager to help. jitesh travelled that extra mile for us-we being senior citizens-and packed light snacks for us to take with us to the Ajanta Caves. At first it seemed unnecessary. But, after visiting the caves we really needed to refuel and this came in handy. Thanks Jitesh, very thoughtful of you. Yes there... More

Vivanta by Taj is a nice and comfortable place to stay in Aurangabad. We stayed there for 4 nights and it was quite comfortable and enjoyable. Our request for a king size bed was accommodated easily so was our request for a late check out. The room was big enough for a family of three, the mattress was confortable and... More

The hotel is located in what I would call nearly the centre of the town. The hotel looks nice and pretty. Although the lawns and gardens are of Vivanta category, the rest of the hotel service quality is more of upper end Gateway class. The buffet spread is quite limited at latitude. After eating, at every meal, time taken to... More

This is a training hotel for Taj, so be prepared for missteps and mistakes. The rooms are clean but basic. I went down for breakfast one morning and the buffet had been "cleaned out" by a tour group and tables were mostly dirty. Only two people were working the dining room. That said, the people are friendly and eager to... More

Here I go again, praising the standard that Taj sets for all others! Its a beautiful property, set a bit outside the hubbub of downtown Aurangabad. The checkin is courteous, if necessarily lengthy. The personal escort to the room is welcome. The youngsters are being well trained by their seniors! The rooms are wonderful....we've stayed in several of them during... More

As usual, Taj quality visible. Whether architecture, landscaping, interiors, service, food quality! A beautiful place in Aurangabad with everything done up tastefully. Do walk around in gardens and play a round of Golf greens! It's fun.. One can never go wrong with Taj.
