My room's window did not open only a balcony which you cannot leave open at night. Located in a very busy congested area. The dining room restaurant smells and the buffet breakfast is poor. Quite noisy downstairs and inconvient location.

Airport pick-up went smoothly (they tacked on the 140 INR parking fee when we checked out--we were expecting to pay at the time of pick-up, but didn't--just FYI.) Laundry was reasonable--pants 30 INR and shirt 25 INR and done in 24 hours. I agree that the travel desk was overpriced, but that is to be expected. There is free use of the desk-top computers, but wifi is 100 INR for 24 hours (slow). I agree that lunch/dinner items at the restaurant were excellent and served in generous portions as well. Breakfast buffet was just okay though--They charged us 180 INR for it. AC in the rooms worked okay, but it went out periodically throughout our 3-night stay--it was toasty in Delhi. Don't expect hot water to work too well, but it's so hot, you probably won't want it!

Room Tip: If going in the near future, avoid the third floor if possible. They are re-doing the floor and the...

I stayed here during my visit to Delhi in september 2011. I stayed for 3 nights and used their cabs for sight seeing. The room was good and the service was excellent. The cab drivers knew all places very well and they did not waste our time by going through unknown routes.

I recommend this place to anyone coming to Delhi and a few of my friends had already stayed here.

This is a good choice for anyone's first few nights in Delhi.

We used the free airport pickup which arrived with no problems, this is very useful for anyone arriving as it can be a bit overwhelming when you walk out of arrivals and everyone is trying to get you in their taxi!

Our room was fine, though it did have no window. Beds were very comfy. The bathroom was spotless and very well equipped.

My only gripe was that is was very noisy - we had no window so it was not external noise but other guests and hotel staff chatting and shouting up the stairs. We did find this to be a common thing all over India, not just at this hotel - quietness is just not respected - take some earplugs!! I did mention this to reception and the lady advised she would have a world and to be fair the noise was a lot less the second night.

The hotel has a travel desk, which while a little overpriced, is convenient if you need to book any taxis or day trips.

There is a rooftop restaurant which served very good food, with great views out over the city.

Overall, I was happy with our stay here and would recommend it for anyone wanting a step up from the real budget grotty places in Pahar Ganj

Clean and well run, we had an issue with the first room, they changed us without issue. service was reasonable. We got free airport transfer with our price, the only cost was 140 rupee airport parking fee. One issue, the hotels travel agent was a really nice guy but !!! His prices were very high, we checked the price for a taxi to Shimla other travel agents and the Taxi stand all quoted 7000 rupees, he initially wanted 12,000 and dropped to 11,000 rupees.

The area around the hotel s pretty poor with no facilities at all.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your recent stay at Hotel Ajanta and taking time to share your feedback with us.
The team at Ajanta Hotel is always keen to make their guest’s stay comfortable, this is why we are recommended by Lonely Planet and well recognized in Delhi.

Regarding your point, we would like to inform you that the person who had quoted you a taxi for Simla at INR 7000 was only for petrol and driving charges. However, we provide everything – car + driver + medical claim (in case of any mishap).

We look forward to serve you even better during your future visits to the city.

Warm regards
Team at Hotel Ajanta
