“Beautiful place with a great staff”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

We had a wonderful stay on our trip to Aurangabad. The stay was made special but the friendly and always helpful staff at the hotel. Specially thankful to Manoj at the restaurant who made us feel special and took care of our needs at every meal. Also thankful to Anup who went out of his way to see that we got a flavor of the local cuisine during our stay.

Would recommend this hotel to anyone for their next trip to Aurangabad.

Room Tip: Take the room facing the pool has a good view of both the pool and the garden.

I was on business tour wen i stayed in this hotel. I was super excited as staying in 5 star hotel like TAJ was one of my dream..... but after staying there for a night i realized there was nothing special about this Hotel every thing was average... and Name TAJ was for name shake.... NO doubt they are excellent in ambiance.... they have very good lawn and balcony room gives very good view... but sleep quality was terrible... early morning 5.00 clock some classical music started which disturbed my and my colleagues sleep. Television provided is still the old model. they didn't even have hair dryer in bathrooms. over all I felt that it is not worth sending money here. you can get better sleep quality and room services in any other hotel at lesser price. VITS and Lemon tree are good option i have stayed there also.

Stayed during a business visit. The Hotel has excellent Staff who are courteous and helpful. The Room had an excellent view of the Pool and was exceptionally clean. Functionally however the rooms are average. The entertainment/sports/news selection on TV was limited. The Bathrrom was clean but once again lacked functionality.
The menu at the Restauarant was nothing to write about but the food was well prepared. The Staff in the reastaurant , however, pampers you.
If you remove the Human element, this property is just average. Its " Wah Taj " ONLY for the Staff

Once you step into this hotel, you will experience of the heart of Aurangabad, India. I might feel so because my arrival at this hotel was after a long day of exploring Ellora Caves, however, that is why you can relax and be enveloped in the warmth of hotel stuff's hospitality.

I will not say one of the, but Taj Residency is the Best hotel available in Aurangabad. It is just 15 minutes away from the Airport and Central Bus Stand and Railway Station; both are equally close to hotel. Moreover, you can plan your visit to Ajanta & Ellora very conveniently. Taxi services are available in the hotel. If you would like to stay in a natural beauty, you have no choice other than Taj Residency in Aurangabad. The look of the hotel is very natural and beautiful, anyone will like it. The rooms available in the hotel are very comfortable, posh and meet all our expectations. The room services are very proper, systematic and prompt. Room at the pool side is the best choice. Hospitality is the important thing in the hotel. Each and every person in the hotel is very polite and ready to help. Those who are interested in food Hotel Taj is the best choice for them. Variety of food with an excellent quality is liked by everyone. Fish is the special dish in the hotel. Moreover, lots of items are available in the desert. In the area of food, one can get the complete satisfaction. Gym and Swimming pool are up to the mark. Lots of foreigners from many countries book this hotel as first choice. What I can say more than this, but I can only say I Love Taj!

Stayed here during a business trip. the hotel is well designed and spacious. Price is reasonable and economical. Room quality is average and should be upgraded. This is not upto the Taj standards and needs change. The food is also average. Overall rating average
