You're not in Kansas any more, Toto. This is a "small" (1 mill population) town in India, and therefore hotels are lower class than in other larger cities. That said, it's an OK hotel, set in a large imitation colonial building, with a nice outdoor dining terrace, ample lobby… Rooms are just Ok, and they should get rid of the...

I was in Aurangabad to attend a family wedding, and the closing event of the celebrations was at the TAJ. The quality of food was great as was the service. The young chefs, excelled in meeting the guests expectations.

The outside looks splendid and the pool is spacious and surrounded by a pretty garden. The room was perfectly appointed, in dark woods, if on the small side - but we could have been in Frankfurt or Minneapolis (no offense meant to these cities!). The terrace was lovely, but it had one very uncomfortable chair and an even more uncomfortable...

We were very pleased with this hotel. Clean and comfortable rooms with a balcony with a swing. We dined both at the Indian and Chinese restaurants and the food was good.

We used the Vivanta by Taj as our accommodation base of operations for visits to the magnificent Ajanta and Ellora Cave temples and monasteries. The hotel provided excellent accommodations and impeccable service. I was particularily impressed by the energetic and enthusiastic service provided by student interns from the nearby hotel school.

Very impressive management on all fronts. We had an exceptionally pleasant and relaxing visit when we stayed here recently. Excellent service and attention to detail and well appointed rooms and hotel facilities and grounds. Can't say enough to compliment all the staff we encountered. Possibly some of this quality and innovative style is thanks to their "budding managers and chefs...

First of all, the service was first rate. They seem to have an abundance of young trainees and so plenty of people to help. The grounds are lovely. The room was very nice and very clean. The Indian restaurant was the only one I ate in and the food was very good. The bar was very comfortable.

Expectations for the Vivanta by Taj in Aurangabad were modest based on other reviews. The well maintained property with well appointed rooms, superior food and a pleasant, efficient staff was a delightful surprise. Enjoying their delicious evening buffet grill under the palm trees and stars entertained by traditional costumed dancers in the manicured garden was spectacular.

This is not a Taj Mahal Palace or Oberoi so one should not expect a 5 star luxury hotel. However, it is comparable to a nice Sheraton or Hilton Hotel in the west designed for the business traveller and exceeded our expectations for cleanliness, convenience, and service. The rooms are spacious and have large balconies overlooking beautifully landscaped grounds and...
