Also now for budget travellers 7 Apple Aurangabad is popular located at HUDCO Corner Next to D-Mart, beside Taj Vivanta at Rauza Baug . However hotel has compact rooms so extra bed can not fit. However they provide the Mattress for extra person. Small resturant and limited choices for food to eat. But hotel is value for money to stay.
At Ellora area you have limited accommodation choices eg. Kailash Hotel located oppoiste to the gate of Ellora Caves Entry with good roadside resturant and Ellora Heritage Resort. Also you can stay at Pace Hotel on the way to Ellora Caves after Daulatabad Fort . It is Good hotel promoted by an NGO with Hospitality Institute Campus around. Many students of the Pace works in Hotels of Aurangabad.
At Ajanta Caves very difficult to find accommodation. Mainly Budget Accommodations by MTDC (Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation ) Ajanta T Junction located opposite to the Entry of the Ajanta caves. However no major resturant in that area to have good food. Mainly all Road side food outlets. Also near by MTDC runs Ajanta Tourist Resort on the Jalgaon Road at Fardapur.
