“Economical and value based choice”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

This hotel just within walking distance from N Delhi Rly station is a steal. The road tat leads to this hotel is nothing to write home about, but once you enter the Hotel,the atmosphere changes. The roosm are spacious and large, neat and very clean. The buffet brekfast is sumptuos with an espresso machine for your cuppa. The staff right from the reception to the cleaning boy are courteous and ready to serve you with a smile. Definitely, a come-back-to hotel.

Room Tip: Go for the superior rooms, they are large and spacious and can accomodate a family with space for ch...

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your very positive review about our hotel. Yes, we are near enough to walk to the station and far enough to avoid the noise. Our tariff and breakfast is popular with guests.
We await you next visit.
Thanks

Hotels in Delhi can unfortunately be hit or miss and often one can end up paying significantly more than the value of the hotel, room and location. However, the Hotel Ajanta is a little gem in Paharganj that is clean, safe and offers great value located conveniently close to the New Delhi railway station. As such I have stayed here twice and is a comfortable choice for travellers or those on business.

Service overall was with a smile (though unusually slow at times), the rooms were quiet (noise can be quite a problem in some parts of Delhi!) and a decent breakfast buffet was included.

WiFi still seems to be a challenge in India (even though lesser developed countries in the region have far more abundant WiFi services) and the Hotel Ajanta offered free WiFi through a third party (via scratch card). However, during my second stay they ran out of these cards and thus I was unable to use WiFi. They do however have a small business center for essentials.

The only areas for improvement I would suggest are:
i) more healthy food options for the buffet breakfast
ii) have local WiFi services available
iii) improve the speed of services (I had to wait an unusual amount of time checking out, ordering tea during breakfast and a variety of other areas)

My tour operator arranged the hotel for us and when our taxi took us to the hotel, we were too anxious as the street leading to this place wasnt what i had expected at all. But the staffs and their service did bring our frustruation down. Kudos to them.

I'm an American traveler that was going through Asia and trying to maintain safety and cleanliness while on a reasonable budget....This hotel was great. Any problems or complaints are more relative to Delhi and/or India as a whole. Short of paying hundreds to go to the Hilton, this is quite good. Safe, quiet, cold a/c, the rooftop restaurant was both good and didn't make me at all sick. Would come back again

Stayed for 3 days during a long weekend, enjoyed the stay. This is on a road named Arakashan road, just back of new Delhi station Paharganj gate - filled with only hotels end to end. And certainly, after taking couple tours throughout the road and just by quickly checking all other hotels - Hotel Ajanta simply stood out. A big plain white building - it catches the eye pleasantly. Only hotel which had a restaurant attached with it and also available to public - Restaurant Vagabond. Food quality was really good there. We liked their chicken stake. Regarding the rooms, they were well spacious and attached bathrooms were clean and big enough. Overall, a good hotel and offers better quality and environment compared to its neighbors (in this price range).

Though located in an obscure location but nevertheless offers great value for the money. I will call it "Paisa Vasool" Clean Spacious room, with very good room décor and wall hangings of historical importance. Kingsize beds for that blissful sleep, I just loved the buffet breakfast in the company of strangers.

Felt super comfortable walking into the hotel after thorough anxiety pangs about my first visit to the mystique country called india. against my booking I was offered a choice of standard or deluxe room with a view on the third floor. I chose the deluxe room-and was greeted by a huge clean bed and super comfortable room with clean linen. ordered from the limited midnight menu and enjoyed my comfort food-grilled cheese sandwich. took an pre ordered car from there for the industrial town of noida. The breakfast was delicious each morning. I'm going back to stay there again for sure
