I had gone on a 3-day personal trip to Aurangabad with family from Bombay. The room was average. Cable TV viewing was available. Ordered food from the same hotel and it was okay. Facilities were there and staff as co-operative. At first we couldn't locate the hotel, but when in conversation with the Manager was able reach.
Near the station, within walking distance... Double rooms were 600 or 800 rupees, main difference being Indian or Western toilet.. Clean and simple room, small TV in the corner, all plumbing in working order... WiFi works fine too...Friendly manager too
A surprising amount of affordable hotels in Aurangabad won't take foreigners so after 90 minutes of wandering around in the heat I finally allowed a tuk tuk driver to bring me here. The free WiFi works well but you have to ask to have it switched on. Hot shower in the morning which is great, but not so great if you're up reeeaaallllyy early to visit the caves. You'll have to make do with a cold shower when you're back. But that's a minor niggle. Also, they lock you in at night which is just something I personally hate but I guess is kinda standard in India, plus it means you have to make a lot of noise to be let out in the morning if you're up for the caves. My room was filthy too. I have pretty low standards when it comes to cleanliness. I've cheerfully accepted rooms that friends have turned down because they think they're dirty and I don't, so yeah. Pretty bad. Definitely not worth the price. Having said that, the location is great if you're catching trains in and out, and the staff are friendly enough and will give you a good recommendation for a local thali. Just be aware that there's a tax on top of the room price and if you pay the tax on check in, make sure you get a receipt or they'll try and charge you the tax again when you check out.
Seeing as Aurangabad's best hotels even in low season have sky high fees, finding a cheap base while you see Ellora and Ajanta is actually a tough task. So following several fruitless visits to recommended hotels we finally chanced upon this place a stones throw away from the station in an area which has a number of decent restaurants. The room we got was clean, (always a crucial first sign) and the manager was very friendly and accommodating. There is also wifi which goes strong up until around 11. The bathroom we got was very basic and rather than a shower we got a small fountain as the plumbing isn't quite up to scratch. The hotel however proved a decent stay in the end. Expect to pay around 700 rupees for a double.
The location was convenient near the railway station. The room was OKish if small, but the shower only kind-of worked (couldn't get hot water). It was quiet at night, but a bit noisy with some work going on in the morning. I paid upfront, but upon going to check out next morning, was asked to pay another 60rs tax. I don't expect to get later additions like this which I hadn't been warned about. I asked to leave my bag, but was told that was impossible. Fortunately I was able to keep my bag in the room until the evening, but not offering any facility to keep bags for a day (even just behind the counter a reception) is really quite poor.
