This is our second visit to the Hotel Ajanta. The first was was when we first arrived in Delhi a month ago and we enjoyed our stay with the exception of the the noise outside our room which I understand is not the fault of the hotel. 1st photo was taken at 11pm and the 2nd at 6:30am. The food is excellent and good value for money and the breakfast included in the room rate is a very good buffet. The rooms are clean and there is as much hot water in the en suite as you could need. However, when I checked out I reserved a room for our return to Delhi the night before our flight. I requested a different room, a luxury family room and was assured it would be ready for us on our return. When we returned to Hotel Ajanta 24 days later we checked in and after enquiring if the room I asked for was free I was told it was so we gave our passports and paid for the room, then given a key and after having a late breakfast we’re taken to our room. The same room we had before that I didn’t want. I went back downstairs to see the manager but couldn’t find him. When I challenged a member of staff I was told there were no other family rooms available. After chatting with my family we decided not to make a fuss- but now it is 10pm, we have a long journey tomorrow to the UK and then a 5 hour drive to get home. The noise outside sounds like a scrap yard, hammering on metal and metal being cut with a grinder, the noise and traffic is terrible. It’s now gone 10:30pm and still going on. Don’t get me wrong- the hotel is ok and the food is excellent but I am more than a little disappointed the request I put in nearly a month ago was not fulfilled and when I raised my concerns no alternative was offered. Had was given the room I asked for I would now be asleep and not still be awake and writing a less than positive review. You’ll see from my other reviews I’m not hard to please and don’t complain unnecessarily. Al Pachino(AKA) requested I leave a review but I rather suspect now it would be preferable I hadn’t. I’m also sure the response will be along the lines of a misunderstanding but you can be assured I made myself perfectly clear on more than one occasion. The scrap yard opposite the hotel stopped making a noise soon after midnight and I then got to sleep. I now have a 24 hour journey ahead of me with a 6 hour drive at the end of it after a crap night sleep having just had a not very sleeper train journey of 18 hours. This all would have been avoided had my request been heard.

Mr Rashid Is Amazing Organised our trip to Taj Mahal a Driver named Paul and a guide named Wasim all gave 100 per cent to our needs .We had 3 days with driver Paul and he delivered a wonderful satisfying tour of Delhi . Would definitely stay in the Hotel again ( may not suit all first time foreign tourist ) Restaurant adjoined to Hotel food is fabulous and at a low cost all staff in Restaurant and Hotel go more than the extra mile for their guests not like the superior ( 😅) Hotel i am now staying in Mumbai Give me Ajunta any day .

The area around the train station is dodgy, the breakfast was manic (not enough tables), the wifi was either very slow or dropped out altogether, the room was always cold (warmer outside) and felt almost damp, the bedsheets felt cold & damp, no extractor fan in bathroom, temperature in shower inconsistent, no where in bathroom to put your toiletries, fridge not clean & not working, very noisey area (shouting, dogs barking, horns tooting etc ALL NIGHT). Would not recommend for couples coming from the UK. Stay in the south of the city instead.

I have stayed here many times - I think several dozen occasions. The first visit was in 2007. It feels like a home from home. The service has always been dependable. The staff have always gone to great lengths to sort anything out for me. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The food is good. In fact on my last visit in November 2023 it seemed even better than I remembered.

Fantastic low cost hotel in a great location. We have stayed in very expensive hotel also in Delhi but the hospitality and the food were far better. Can’t recommend the restaurant enough, best Rogan Josh we had all holiday. Staff amazing but a huge special thanks to Rashid for going above and beyond to help out four old ladies, from taking us to get beer to taking us on a tour of old Delhi markets. You were a superstar and we wished we had come back to stay with you. Highly recommend for all.

I stayed here while undertaking archival research at the National Archives of India. This is an excellent budget hotel. WiFi is good and fast, rooms are comfortable and no frills, staff are extremely friendly and helpful. They offer free pickup from the airport as well. Mr Rashid the manager is extremely friendly and assisted in arranging a trip to the Taj Mahal on Diwali. Easy access from the hotel to New Delhi metro. The restaurant is superb and very reasonably priced. This is a great option for a budget hotel at a reasonable price. I would definitely recommend.
