stayed for 3 nights as a couple in august 2014. The property is huge with luscious gardens & swimming pool. Rooms were large size as was the bed. Decor slightly dated. Breakfast good. Lunch/Dinner average. Special mention must be made of the wonderful girls & boys working here as interns from the attached hotel management college. Hard working, always smiling... More

Vivanta by Taj at Aurangabad is a good star hotel to stay in Aurangabad. Beautiful palace like architecture is the highlight of this property. Good rooms, courteous smiling staff, good food though monotonous with same menu on both days of my stay for breakfast. However front desk staff are quite dumb- they did not even know meaning of a souvenir... More

We just visited Aurangabad for the first time, with the purpose of visiting Ajanta and Ellora caves. The hotel itself is pleasant - clean, nice grounds, friendly and helpful staff. Our room was satisfactory-clean, comfortable, simply decorated, black-out curtains, with a balcony that overlooked the garden and pool (keep doors closed though to avoid the flies). The pool is under... More

Me and my husband stayed in Taj, Aurangabad in August for 3 nights. The hotel itself is excellent and only 20 min away from the Airport. Rooms are spacious and comfortable and the property is well maintained. What made our stay memorable was the excellent service provided by their hospitality staff. They went out of their way to ensure that... More

My first visit. Very nice architecture. Was well received by the staff, albeit the receptionist that checked us in had difficulties in smiling, and delivered here welcome in a sort of "automated way". Room was very nice - to date the best I have had in Aurangabad. The bar is very very cozy. Restaurant has very good a la carte... More

The hotel in situated in beautiful gardens that include the pool, but also have a little pitch and putt area, plus a croquet lawn. The pool area itself is very nice, and if anything the pool is too warm - or at least it was when we were there. We had a deluxe room which included a balcony overlooking the... More

This hotel will make you feel like you are entering a palace when checking in. The staff is friendly and the laundry service is timely and they deliver your clothes in these cool looking chests. The rooms are always clean and plenty of bottled water is provided. But the food is terrible! Not just one meal, but 2 lunches and... More

Palace like architecture, perfectly manicured gardens with beautiful balconies. Evening cultural dance by a troupe is also a major attraction, especially for expats. Overall, the place will give you a bit of royal experience with a quintessential - 'rajtilak' - the moment you step into the hotel
