Clean, comfortable rooms, nice swimming pool and good restaurants. Staff are mostly younng and friendly students or recent graduates of the hotel school next door. They are learning their profession and there are a few bumps in the service.

On the first night a group of boisterous local youth were have a party on the lawns below the rooms till 1 a.m in the... More

Excellent two day stay. Beautiful hotel grounds. Lovely room. Friendly service from hotel staff. Our morning check-out from the hotel was followed by a long day visiting the Ajanta caves, and a subsequent 9:00 pm evening flight from Aurangabad to Mumbai. The hotel was kind enough to make a room available to us for an hour or so prior to... More

The hotel is beautifully constructed and it is at a very historic location - at the place where Emperor Aurangzeb studied. The rooms are comfortable and the food at the restaurants are good. A little more work could be done regarding the rooms.

Room was lovely but a little on the small side once we added a rollaway bed for our 3rd adult. King bed was very comfortable and clean. Bathroom was just shy of excellent in that it could use a refresher. We needed housekeeping to do a bit better on the bathroom and they sent a team of 4 or 5... More

The Vivanta at Aurangabad is a comfortable hotel, offers great food and has friendly and courteous staff. The rooms are large but the bathrooms need to be better maintained. The food at their restaurants is tasty and the service is quick. The structure of the building is in keeping with the structures of the Aurangabad of the Mughals. The pool... More

This is a nice property, very well maintained with a liberal touch of greenery. Rooms are quite spacious, very well kept with modern bathrooms. The staff is very courteous and had gone out of way to make us feel comfortable. Special mention for Sangeeta Saharia at front desk who took extra care for us beyond the call of her duty.... More

When you pay high bucks for a hotel like Taj you expect a high standard of service and facilities as well, but not this- right from service to facilities, everything is falling apart in this hotel.
