“Aurangabad Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

I was in the Taj Aurangabad, for the 1st time on the 15th of August, 2013. I found it to be a very nice and hospitable hotel. The food and the staff were truly Taj Class. The tariff, was also reasonable, as compared to the other hotels of the area. It had a nice scenic view & old style monument property, going in line with the buildings of the city.
Their new Oriental Restaurant was small but nice. The food was really nice.

Room Tip: Compare the Tariff of other hotels in the area & if you find Taj reasonable then, my vote is don...

I was pleasantly surprised to see this huge property at a peaceful location little bit away from the crowd. Very neatly and beautifully maintained lawns, corridors, swimming pool etc. A pleasant weather further added to the scenic environment. Right from pick up to check in and room service all very well trained and hospitable staff interaction left me impressed. Restaurant has adequate variety and again warmth associated with it makes the dining a pleasure.

Room Tip: Facing lawns and swimming pool

we stayed at Taj vivanta Aurangabad for two days 16&17 Aug'2013,surprisingly it is vast green property located centrally with easy approach,rooms are good big enough ,but AC is not effective,swimming pool is big & clean with good staff,but surprisingly he is off most of the times since he is also in charge of gym,it is dangerous if some children are there he goes for supervising gym?the break fast is not good nor bad.they should improve on items & quality of food

Room Tip: prefer facing back side of hotel

Peaceful and well kept...spacious interiors(rooms)...vast exteriors...excellent & well-trained staff...good food...close to the airport...lovely driveway to the hotel...

Taj Vivanta(as it's now called) lives up to the meaning of the name 'Vivanta' which is a combination of the words - 'Vividness, Vivacity and Vivian' - meaning 'Full of Life'...it's full of life without it being in-your-face kind.

As women travelers we look for safe boarding and Taj Vivanta was welcoming, safe, friendly & very accommodating in letting us use a room way beyond the check out time.

Room Tip: We stayed in rooms 231 & 232 and they are close to the pool. They accommodated our request for...

We picked this property up as there was a great offer floating in makemytrip at that time.

Pros :
1. Centralized location in aurangabad
2. Big rooms, clean and big toilets.
3. Nice breakfast spread

Cons :
1. Dinner options in ala carte were little limited
2. Dinner buffet was even more unimaginative and limited.

We stayed at Taj Residency, Aurangabad now known as "Vivanta By Taj, Aurangabad" on 17th and 18th night and had a great experience. The staff was very cooperative and they helped us in all aspects right from getting the right kind of room to helping us with making our stay comfortable considering that we were with 2 kids with one of them being a little over an year old.
They did not charge us for any kids' meals and were most helpful when we had to shift to our room from the restaurant in terms of providing the means and services there.
Overall a great experience. I would recommend the Hotel to everyone who intends to travel to Aurangabad.

The hotel is built over a large property and serves as a good place to sleep over not only for business travelers but for tourists as well. At any time, you will see a mix of two at the hotel - businessmen traveling to Aurangabad because of the proximity to the auto belt of Waluj and foreign tourists come to visit the nearby Ajanta Ellora caves.

The hotel is housed in an old building and the expectation should be set before booking. It will not be as swashbuckling or fancy as some of the newer hotels but it does offer a calm, peaceful and relaxing stay with good and helpful staff. The rooms have basic amenities though lighting could have been better. The rooms in the basement specifically look dingy and proper lighting could have helped. The balcony with a swing is a big bonus. The residential area is away from the main road which means that the hotel is quiet and calm. Open seating area for breakfast/dinner is a good option.

Dinner buffet was average but breakfast buffet is good. Service was good and gave no reason to complain. It would be my preferred hotel to stay in during any visit to Aurangabad. Set your expectations right for a hotel in Aurangabad and you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: The ones on higher floors could be better; the one's at the ground level (one level below the lo...
