Good place for a large family stay. Homely environment and lots of space for kids to play. Ample of parking place. Its an ideal place to stay, coz the market is at walking distance and at the same time have tranquility of a hill station.

Though the rates are lower but even they are not worth. Prices are on much higher side compared to the facilities given. Dnt expect anything other than a closed market location. Rooms are all oldest of old (around 30-40 yrs old structure) and not even slightly renovated. Bathrooms and washrooms are deteriorated because of age of the property. A thali for meal is highly expensive compared to its lower quality and you wont get food within the timings mentioned in the hotel. Everything mentioned as cost or price everywhere is always excluding of GST and they do not mention it while enquiring ; For ex - When you asked about Thali, its Rs 250, but when making payment, it becomes 295, since GST of 18 percent gets added on it at the time of payment & checkout. You will get more yummy maharashtrian thalis outside at less than 200 Rs The Most important - WHEN YOU MAKE A CARD PAYMENT, YOU WILL BE CHARGED 1% MORE JUST FOR MAKING CASHLESS PAYMENT AND ITS NOT MENTIONED ANYWHERE My Overall rating is lowest and not happy with the experience. Though rates seems low cpmpared to Mahableshwar range, still hotel is not even upto that mark. Giving 2 stars just for its location near to market. Not preferring to go nexttime onwards

An awesome place to book if you intend going with friends and family. Peaceful and huge open spaces. Good rooms with the basic facilities. Respectable and cheerful staff. Situated just at a walking distance from the market. Ample parking space. Playground and garden space for children. Authentic and delicious vegetarian food served by the hotel owner. Clean and well maintained. Although you have the liberty to order for non-veg food in the rooms and also have a barbeque if you wish too. Just carry Your Own barbeque set along with you. All in all a place you would never wish to miss if you're around Mahableshwar.

We stayed here for 2 days.. first visit of 2016 to mahabaleshwar.. It is not for people looking for a 3-5 star place... yet it is pretty decent one and reasonable too. The food is good as well, the place is very near to the markets and yet very calm and quiet.

I came to this hotel because its location was strategic, near the market and bus stand, and still it was isolated and quiet. But big mistake on my part!!! The hotel architecture seems to date back to 1950s era, and that would have been still fine if their in-room accessories and general service was good. Seems like along with the architecture, even the beddings, furniture, and toilet-baths are from the 1950s era. The bedsheets and towels were clean but very old and were full of rust stains. I can still put up with old furniture, but the most terrible part of was the toilets and bathrooms. The hot water was non-existent (they had to supply it through buckets), toilet flushes were malfunctioning, wash basins were cracked, water taps were creaking and leaking, and all these were full of rust stains too. Taking a dump in their toilet or bathing in the bathroom was like a "punishment". I guess only people who do not get reservations at any other place stay here. And I doubt that the previous reviews rating this place as "excellent" are forged (written by the owner himself or his relatives)!

I have been to this hotel twice. The first time I stayed alone for a week. I was compiling a few essays on my laptop and needed a peaceful and quiet location. Aaram hotel served just the purpose. My one week trip ended up great and I am thankful to the management and the staff there. My second trip was with my girlfriend. The staff recognized me and we got the same room luckily and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is located very close to main market, about 10 mins walk, yet it is very peaceful and quiet once inside. The booking and info desk is hassle free, you just deposit a minimal amount and rest you pay upon departure. The rooms are good and there is plenty of car parking. Our room had a nice private balcony sit out. The hotel serves Vegetarian Maharastrian thali for lunch and dinner. Thali is delivered to room or you can have it in their restaurant. Food was very good and homely with sufficient quantity. Tea/Cofee and breakfast is also served at your room. The staff provided a very good service and was polite. As a couple we wanted solace and got exactly that. You can carry your own alcohol and consume it inside your room, same with NV food items, you can bring them from outside. The washroom and toilets are not of great standards, yet they serve the purpose. TV's are not flat screens, but we hardly watched TV. You can take a walk around the campus in the morning and evening in fresh weather. I will praise the staff and management as they are very helpful and least intrusive. I had a toothache one night and the management arranged for a taxi to take me to Panchgani to a dentist. Very kind of them. At approx 2500 per night inclusive of breakfast and meals in month of June, this stay proved to be economical as well. Mind you, the hotel accepts only cash, no credit cards. If you need cash, there are ATM's in the market place. Overall, I highly recommend this hotel if you are visiting with your better half. For kids, there is nothing much to do in this place, so take some toys along to keep them busy. Taxis are on call and you have to negotiate rates for sight seeing. If you have your own car, then hotel keeps a map and you can do sight seeing yourself. Before departing, please do say thanks to the staff and tip them. It keeps them motivated to serve you well. Overall 5 stars to this hotel.

Aaram lodging and boarding is a nice place. It was an extended weekend and Mahabaleshwar was jam packed. However, the owner still offered us an accommodation. We had just intimated over the phone without any advance payment. The Hotel area is good enough. We loved the Maharashtrian food served here. Just that we went to this place in the rainy season and the room and the bedding was not up to the mark. The room seemed to be unoccupied for sometime and so the bedding had a typical smell when unused in rainy season. The service was not up to the mark. It was just OK.

We had no room reservations done as the trip ws planned in hush.. the local hotel agents took us to third class hotels with filthy rooms and they claimed high rates.. however thanks to our google search.. we came across tripadvisor's review about Aaram lodging.. we immediately called them up and luckily got a room at a reasonable rate.. the place ws nothing less than a resort except that it ws very simple and classicly built.. it goes very well with its name.. "Aaram!".. the room ws tidy and the staff ws very good too.. ready to help anytime.. the owner was very understanding too.. overall it was a worth the price stay even in peak time of the season(monsoon).. they said rates were higher only during diwali.. there was a single thing that i dint liked.. was the hygiene issue.. i noticed a spider web inside the thermos bottle that contained tea.. maybe that ws the only issue.. they might not have noticed it..

This hotel offers never like before open landscaped gardens and peaceful environment that gives u an opportunity to stay away from the congested city disturbances. Bookings are always available and the rooms are kept as clean as possible. The lush green well maintained gardens provide a refreshing feeling all day long.
