“Disappointed”
Reviewed 9 April 2012

I was in Delhi for business and booked a deluxe room in this hotel after seeing reviews on internet but I was thoroughly disappointed. The hotel front is quite good but the interior is not up to the mark. The room didn't have any window, there was glass window above the door through which the light came into the room during the night. I asked for a newspaper in the morning 4 times but I never got it. The room lighting was damp, the food quality is average. My trip was extended by a day and I checked into another hotel few blocks away and it was much better in every aspect. This hotel would have been a good hotel few years back but few new hotels are much better at this point in time.

Room Tip: Do not book room 215

Although a bit too far north of Connaught Place for me, It's in Ram Nager, not Paharganj, I'd still shortlist this place for next time.

It's one of the few hotels I stopped in that had a little fridge in my room for keeping all the bottled water cold....It was stocked too! Cans of pop, crisps, biscuits - how nice was that. Even better at checkout, someone obviously went up to check my room and I expected to be billed with a list of stuff I'd helped myself too, nope no bill, I even admitted helping myself to some snacks but reception didn't fuss over it.

Another thing I like in hotels which this one catered for - a breakfast buffet room. Breakfast was included in the price (booked through Agoda ) I hate staying in places that only offer room service, I like to pay for my breakfast once, not once for breakfast, once for bell boy, once for second helping of breakfast etc.. Nice food too.

The bed was of a nice quality, a tough, possibly orphapedic mattress - which suited me fine :) Maybe some would complain though?

View from the room was poor, but I didn't care much about that anyway. Ditto restaurant view.

Only real negative was the hard sell at reception during signing in, 'Come into my office to finish the paperwork whilst I tempt you with some tours', the guy fumbled through Rough Guide, trying to find his own advert 'Look, I have Advert!' he bellowed, 'Look, I hate that guide book' I spat. I turned to the bell boy, the one who ushered me in here, the one who just kissed his 20 rupee tip bye bye and gave him the most fed up look I could muster. He muttered to the travel agent and I was outta there in a few seconds flat.

Bottom line is I would stay there again...They really do need to finish that WiFi room though (chuckle, chuckle)

My brother had booked a family since we were 3 adults and 2 children for 01 night stay on 1st April 2012. On arrival we were upgraded to presidential suite by a kind manager who saw we were extremely tired and seems they are gng pretty full. I must say for the price we paid (INR2800++ on room only basis) we had a wonderful stay. Very neat and clean property and the travel desk was very prompt as well in arranging a vehicle for us for the day in 1 hrs notice. Have never stayed in this area earlier but I would not mind coming back here! Its safe!

Even thou the area doesn't look like it at first, but It is a nice and clean hotel. Only the water in the bathroom doesn't get very hot.
The best thing is, that I forgot something in my room and after a few calls and emails, I'll get it back soon-they didn't stole it!

Dear Guest,
We do agree that Delhi is a populated place as most cities in India are. Being central and near the railway station makes it busy.
We are glad you liked Hotel Ajanta. We are all glad to be of any help to all our guests. Yes, we will certainly identify your room number and make sure there is no problem with hot water in future.
Thank you for your visit.

This hotel was a pleasant surprise. It is a perfect distance from the metro and right in the middle of a bustling market district.

The staff were most helpful and friendly. Rooms were spotless and very well furnished. The shower was large and bathroom all top quality.

Food was good and the kitchen staff were most accommodating.

The price was very cheap for what you got.
