“Good hotel with good rooms”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

The hotel is located near to the centre of the city. The hotel ambiance is good and well decorated. The rooms are also really good and measure up to the 4 star hotel standard. The rooms were clean and well appointed

A good Business hotel close to the station. The rooms are large and very comfortable compared to Ginger chain with basic toiletries provided.The staff well groomed and polite. The food is fresh and tasty and there is a good breakfast spread. What I particularly liked was the 'ghar ka khana' section, The only minus point was that I could not pay by credit card (some problem with machine) but overall it was a pleasant stay

Dear Sir,

Thank you for your wonderful feedback and I am delighted to know you had a pleasant stay at Keys Hotel The Aures.

Credit Card Machine was indeed a trouble for a full day. Apparently the device stopped functioning suddenly & getting it replaced took longer than anticipated : Please accept my genuine apologies.

Here, we value our guests and work towards providing the best services at all times to ensure a warm, comfortable and memorable stay.

We look forward to the pleasure of welcoming you back soon.

Whilst not having any of the fancy facilities afforded by the Taj and Lemon Tree, the Keys nevertheless holds it's own in terms of nice clean rooms and excellent service. We had a very comfortable and pleasant stay for three days here and would have no hesitation in recommending this as a good place to stay.

With regard to things to do, the Keys makes a good base to visit the Ajanta and Ellora caves which are the two key things to do in Aurangabad. Breakfast is generally included in the room rates and this was extensive and filling. There is a good selection of both Indian and western items with eggs freshly prepared to order. The staff really are to be applauded for going the extra mile whenever requested and very little seemed to be beyond their willingness to address.

In all honesty, we did miss having a pool to chill out in after two fairly strenuous days exploring the caves, but you know what, we paid a fraction of the price of the other two hotels, the room was clean and the AC worked perfectly. Also, not sure about the availability of wifi at the other hotels but the facility works well here, and we had to change flights at short notice so it was good that we did not have to run around paying for wifi which we did have to do at other places that we stayed at.

We tended to walk down the road for dinner in the evenings just to have a change from the hotel but this was not due to the quality of the food. We went to a vegetarian place called the Khailash and for the two of us, we paid around Rs300 which equates to around GBP4 or so! For travelling to the caves, we used a local driver called Saleem Khan whose number was given in an earlier review by some guys from Singapore. His English is a bit ropey but we managed to communicate fine - amazing how monetary amounts seem to transcend language!

All in all, we enjoyed our stay very much and if you are going to run around a lot as we did, then this makes for a good base. Like us, go have lunch or dinner at the Taj/Lemon Tree but come back to your comfortable room at the Keys!

As a family of four, we went on a tour of North India and by far the Keys Hotel was the best hotel we stayed at. The hospitality was outstanding. We were treated exceptionally by all the staff from start to finish.

Firstly, the restaurant service and food was first class! We couldn't speak highly enough of the waiters. Their efficiency and willingness to serve was as good as I've witnessed. We had the buffet breakfast and the buffet dinner on all 3 nights we stayed at the hotel and had no complaints.

Secondly, we were all delighted with the compassion showed by the manager (Satyajit). My wife was sick and he made sure that she was alright by attending to our needs with the doctor. He also went out of the way in offering to take us out to look at some saree stores nearby. On the final day, even though we had checked out in the morning, the manager let us wash up in a room before the flight in the evening.

Overall, our trip to Aurangabad was so special, because of our stay at the Keys Hotel. Our family were in awe of how the staff went about their business, with every gesture done with a smile. We will definitely be recommending this hotel to our friends and family and look forward to coming their again in the not too distant future.

Keep up the great work Satyajit and give our best regards to the staff!

P.S. I hope they enjoyed the sweets :)

Regards,

Kumar and Jeyanthy

Stayed for one night. Checked in in the late evening, it was quick and efficient. I was upgraded to a suite, which was nice. Nice, clean and spacious room. Nice LCD tv with cable with all channels unlocked. Ordered room service, which was quick and good food. Comfortable bed and pillows. AC worked well. Good shower. Left early in the AM so didnt try breakfast.
