The first site of this place as you enter the gateway itself is very impressive. It reminds one of Moghul architecture of the begone era. You are treated by a warn Namaste. The two strorey parking though modern blends with the serene surrounding. As you park the car and enter the lobby, suddenly you feel that you are entering the... More

this does not pretend to be a top Taj palace hotel but nevertheless it was very good. The room , the grounds and the restaurant ( we only ate at the main one ) were all faultless and there were nice extra touches as with the towel presentation.The staff were always helpful. A good place to return to after visiting... More

A very professionally run Taj Property, though not for budget travellers. If you are on a leisure holiday and intend to have fun with your family, this is an ideal place to stay!! After visiting Ajantha and Ellora, plan for an extra day to stay at the hotel and enjoy the ambiance, the pool, the hospitality of well trained staff... More

We spent three nights here in February in order to visit the Ellora and Ajanta Caves, as well as some of the other sights in/near Aurangabad. We appreciated the welcome drink and easy/efficient check in. We had requested and were assigned a garden view room. It was spacious and nicely furnished, though with particular flair or character to speak of.... More

The room, view from the room, food, drinks, atmosphere and the pool were just amazing. I have spent most of my time at the coffee shop. Surrounded by trees, the hotel is nice and cool. The room was nice and spacious, also the bathroom had a huge tub. I will definitely go to Aurangabad, not for the city but for... More

I just wanted to share what a positive experience I had staying with Taj Hotels during my travels in India. I came to Aurangabad with my flight itinerary set, but other than this first Hotel, accommodations were left open, giving additional flexibility in my travel arrangements. I met and discussed with the hotel manager, Mr. Unni Krishnan, my itinerary and... More

Prior to arrival, I had a great deal of contact with Mr. Khizar Mirzar who could not have been more helpful or more patient. I was delighted to meet him upon entering the reception area.. His willingness to help never ceased. He had , as promised, arranged a car for us and the driver, Vijay, was terrific. He drove carefully... More

Taj Aurungabad has a lot to offer - a one stop destination in Aurungabad! I stayed at Taj for 3 nights and loved the great care showed by the staff. I've read a lot of comments on Tripadvisor about this place being the training grounds for Taj and that the standards are not great. I totally disagree with that view,... More
