“Great location, average stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2013

Average hotel with smelly rooms. Little inside from MG road and that saves many a noise. Good restaurant, thought food is not great is definitely ok. But then be it the restaurant or the rooms, they are old buildings with average maintenance. If you are allergic to see marks /stains then this hotel is not for you. If you are ok with things as long as things are decently clean (acceptable to get on with) then you may consider. But still there is a far bette hotels for the same price on the same road in Bangalore

Stayed at AH for 2 nights over New Year's 2013.
1) Non-AC room was as-close-to-zero-frills-as-you-can-get-without-going-into-the-negative. Room is old and dark, the shower is a bucket, bed mattress is thin and worn, sheets are stained but clean and the towels are like sandpaper.
2) Breakfast was included and was very good. They were happy to refill our chais.
3) Location is very central, just off MG Road.
4) Staff was friendly.
5) You pay for a 24 hour stay, from the moment you check-in. Back-up generator kicks in immediately if necessary. All taxis know the place.

Read about this place in lonely planet, and it seemed good and cheap - called and made a reservation, they then forgot about. anyhoo - prices have gone up since their 2011 entry in LP, fair.

Staff is friendly, the non AC rooms are clean, but smell like bonfire when they light that insane fire! There was a wedding going on, but that's hardly any reason to fill all the corridors with smoke? Breakfast was nice, when the staff remembered we ordered something. Good travel service nearby, and this hotel has a very nice location!

Ajantha has the most amazing reception area, so clean and fresh, I thought I hit the jackpot but the room are at the back, not as snazzy as the reception, smelt a bit but it was ok, the shower is a bucket and 2 taps, fun times. the reception was what made the room seem like an anti climax, however the staff are great, if u need to exchange money, they give the best rate, I know I'm a Jew. The only this is the fumigation smell, maybe it was just my timing but overall it's a good place, cheap and located in a very good area.

Room Tip: Carry a spare sheet!

This is probably the cheapest option near MG Road. Unpretentious hotel with a good South Indian breakfast and thali meals for lunch and dinner. Rooms may be a bit musty but if you intend just to sleep,have breakfast and head out, a good option.

We stayed a few nights in this Hotel. Rooms are dark, old and not very clean, some smelling of smoke. Expensive for what you get. We found some bed bugs in one room and could change to a different room. This room didn't have shower so we asked again fo another room. We were told that there were no other rooms left and only got a different room after showing on the computer all the green marked (free) rooms. No apologizes or proper reaction regarding the bed bugs.
The last night we came back to the hotel late at night and saw two very huge rats (30cm without tale) in the hotel corridor.

Staff was friendly and helpful most times (apart of the room changing). The hotel has newspaper service, every morning we found a newspaper in our room.

Location-wise very ideal as the Hotel is situated in the heart of the city on MG Road and close to Brigade Road. Commercial Street, a very famous shopping center in Bangalore, is just 2 KM from this hotel. Room facilities are just OK but considering the low rentals, the condition /facilities one should get moderately satisfied. Service by staff / Room attendants could be rated as good. Food /snacks are mainly South Indian type and those having liking for South Vegetarian would relish very well. Overall.. Not bad for a short stay !
