Vivanta by Taj Aurangabad3.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
This Taj asset hotel, while looks a bit old and less luxury than most Taj hotels elsewhere, still promises a great service with highly attentive mindset of all staff. Room is quite large and has a good view of garden. Location is a bit far from airport and town center though. Its breakfast has a limited variety of mostly Indian food, which we found a bit disappointing. Overall it is still worth a price to stay.
The Taj hotel is a great base to explore the Ajanta and Ellora caves and other attractions such as the Daulatabad Fort. Imran is a peerless driver and an excellent guide. Excellent food at the Chinese restaurant
We booked hotel rooms a car and chauffer and a guide for the two nights and three days we spent in Aurangabad and were very happy with the service. The driver was excellent and the guide knowledgeable. As the hotel was responsible for everything, it was a very relaxed holiday. The hotel is maintained well and food is good though expensive for Indian standards due to luxury taxes. The breakfast was excellent and staff very friendly and attentive.
We stayed in this hotel for two nights. Hospitality from a Taj hotel is always taken for granted. But this time, they went out of their way to help us. My daughter got injured during the stay. The hospital staff supported us through out the period. They took us to the local hospital, helped us with medicine and even was there in the minor OT room while my daughter was getting her stitches. Without their help, it would have been a nightmare to manage. The entire staff ensured that we had comfortable stay post the accident. We were bowled over by the hospitality. Rest is as good as it gets for a Taj Hotel
The hotel is quite good, the rooms are spacious and well maintained. Food was good, the pool, lawns etc are well maintained. The restaurant staff was quite kid friendly. The only thing that was not in line with Taj service is that there were no wines other than domestic wines. Seems they had run out of the South African / other wines. Now this would be an acceptable response in any restaurant other than Taj :-) but as I have seen in other Taj restaurants, in such a case, they open up a bottle (from the by the bottle) section and make available the same by the glass. Like i mentioned, anywhere else this was a perfectly okay response, but Taj sets such high standards for itself that this was unexpected here. But overall a lovely property in Aurangabad
On our visit to the caves we spend 3 nights at Taj vivanta Aurangabad, everything about the hotel is very good ,the friendly staff at the Taj and never say a No Taj culture is just fantastic. All in one word I can say is Super
If your stay is fantastic it's the icing on the cake ,it's the difference between a good holiday or function and a memorable one.Over the years I have stayed in a number of great hotels but what set this visit apart was the warmth ,smiles and professionalism of the hotel staff.Housekeeping wins hands down !!I would give an arm and a leg to have the team take over my home.!! The breakfast was what gastronomic dreams are made of fresh fruit ,cold cuts ,cheese platter ,variety of breads ,and of course the choice of various dishes You do get spoilt for choice. I believe the management walked an extra mile to make sure that the wedding functions went off smoothly.The management does realise how important it is and hence everyone enjoyed themselves.
Had a short business trip there..rooms are good for a short stay..the best part is the open lawn . Location is a bit far from city but closer to tourist attraction. Breakfast is usual Taj great variety and good ambience.
When I read the reviews of this hotel and then stayed there I was a little surprised that anyone could not review this hotel as the best in this city. Sure it is not a Taj or an Oberi magnificent hotel. But is the best there is in this city thus a ranking of excellent. The rooms are large beds comfortable ,bathroom nice and the rooms are very well lite. The restaurant is excellent and the staff will work hard to make all your food wishes come true.
The name is Vivanta by Taj but the quality and service is not what you would get in a Vivanta by Taj. Hotel is in close proximity of 4 mosques and their loudspeakers will keep reminding you that (but there isn't much that hotel can do about). House keeping was the best department here! Rest everywhere we were left wanting to see Tajness. Ambiance and food test of Latitude restaurant is average and it seemed that the breakfast menu repeats every alternate day. Chinese food served at Tea House is well below par and service at both the restaurants is left in the hands of armature trainees without monitoring and supervision.The laid back attitude is in abundance everywhere except for House keeping and security department.
