This is our first trip to Aurangabad and we booked Aurangabad Gymkhana club hotel for our stay in Aurangabad. The property is very big, rooms are also comfortable with extra space, extended gallery is an advantage for all rooms. The property made in you shape hence you have ventilation on both end of rooms . The swimming pool is also big enough to enjoy swimming. There is a big Gym near the swimming pool with all gym facilities . The staff are polite and helpful. They are genuine and polished like commercial hotels . Food is average not that great. Good restaurants are available in 3 to 5 km radius. PVR theater is adjacent to hotel, you can spend time in night for watching latest movies. We went to see Dan gal by walking . This is ideal location to cover all major tourist spots in and around Aurangabad. Parking facilities are also good.
I visited this hotel for a business conference Rooms & Service:. The room in the hotel are really great. The 'wow' factor is that daily the housekeeping staff would shape the towels in a way to resemble some animal. The way it is presented, is really great Food:. The food spread at the hotel is excellent. For a hotel in a tier-2 town like Aurangabad, to have so many varieties of food, is exceptional.
It was a good hotel. I would definitely recommend this hotel to upcoming travellers. I had visited this hotel for business trip. WiFi service was available in the room but connectivity was not good. The staff response was good and cooperative. The room was clean and tidy. I don't have any suggestion for this hotel.
