Please do not go by the picture shown in this. The rooms are small and you can listen to sound of people moving across your room, There is no privacy or such. The bathroom is also tacky. Complaint for hot water but it was not available. You will not find the picture shown for rooms.You can find better hotel at this price. Price for rooms cannot be more the Rs. 1000. The restaurant is too heavily priced and the food is not even at par with the price. For some one Staying there. You can have a great simple food at Rs. 80.Please take a left after coming out of the hotel. After moving about 50 meter on the right hand side you will find a hotel. " Pure Veg Food". It is also written in bengali. We Travel to Agra, Mathura Vrindavan by Innova Crytsa. We paid 7000( inclusive Toll + Parking). Please contact Mr. Sanjay- 9560225665. He is a Very good person. Hotel will ask for 9500 to 12000

Our stay at Hotel Ajanta was amazing, especially the service was really extraordinary! Hotel manager Zahoor Baktoo, a kind and generous man, helped with everything, literally with everything we could possibly need. We were treated like family and he said "when you are here in India, you are one of us!". For me and my partner it was the first trip to the country, diving directly into the vibrant heart of New Delhi, an adventure from the start. On our very first day we were almost getting scammed (by a guy on the street who worked with a TukTuk driver, who drove us to a fake travel agency), which can happen on a daily bases, but Zahoor was somehow aware of that scamming attempt (which happened 300m away from the hotel) and warned us, prevented bad things happening to us. He also managed a tour for us, including a driver, who worked for the hotel, a tour guide, train tickets, hotel reservations, airport pick-ups, tickets for sights like temples, tips for the social life in India and much much more.. he made our stay there a whole lot easier and everything felt very relaxed. In a city like Delhi you can get stressed out easily but residing in Hotel Ajanta made us feel save and homely. The entire staff is trustworthy and professional, also the rooms and the whole building were clean and cosy. All in all it was very pleasant to stay there and also the cost-benefit ratio was great, we were overwhelmed by the support and service and we will definitely come back on our next stay in town. Altogether my warmest recommendations!!!

Solo white middle aged female travelling around India for one month. The hotel was comfortable and clean with friendly staff however the area it is situated in is frantic and I was stopped on 3 seperate occasions on different days by kind English speaking men telling me not to walk around this area alone as I was very unsafe due to being white, female and alone. This energy was also felt by myself as I was walking around so I took tuk tuk to other areas that felt safer. I had not felt this way in any other area of India that I had solo travelled during my month there - quite the opposite vibe everywhere else. Will not stay in this area of Delhi again even if I was with someone else.

Hotel Ajanta surprised me in a pleasant way. The hotel is located in a very busy somewhat chaotic area with narrow streets end a lot of local business. But as soon as you step into the hotel you find yourself in a well maintained and organized spot. The building itself breathes a colonial atmosphere: corridors with beautiful and clean tiles. The rooms are decorated with cool pictures of old colonial Indian buildings. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Rooms are clean and diverse. Some of our group had really luxury rooms with a very modern bathroom, airconditioning, fan, fridge, a reasonably priced minibar. Others had a more basic room. The hotel features a really good restaurant which serves delicious dinners, and a nice continental / Indian breakfast buffet in the morning. Two things stood out and made our stay very pleasant: - The hotel assisted with planning our Delhi Sightseeing. Mr. Avinash Kumar organised our airport transfers, our trip to Agra, and a local sightseeing. All communication prior to our stay was clear and transparent. - Since we had a late flight home the hotel provided us with a room free of charge at the end of our check-out day, to freshen up for the flight. So, no points of attention? Yes, there is one. And I hope the hotel will address this issue: The tiled corridors are beautiful, but also extremely noisy. This is noticed in the evening when guests tend to use the corridor to make "private?" calls, in the night when late guests arrive, in the morning when the front desk noise can be heard on the lower floor. For those who have a light sleep it is advised to avoid rooms on the lower levels. Not necessarily an attention point, but a good to know is that several rooms do not have a window. Over all my stay was pleasant, efficient, and very affordable. If I go to Delhi you will find me in Hotel Ajanta again.
