Travel Blogs from New Delhi
I'm not going to lie, Nick and I were pretty sad to leave Bangkok to fly to India. Don't get me wrong, we were excited to visit a new country but Bangkok is just so easy and relaxing. We had been hearing so many horror stories about India... everyone gets sick, there are so many scams, men are always groping women, train travel is …
We went to do a bit of sport shoe shopping for the boys in Connaught Place last night. All the major brands have a store there. Nike, Reebok, Adidas. When asking what they had in US size 14, we were quickly shown the door. The look of shock and awe on their faces that some-one could have feet this size was amusing. One young man even suggesting …
We have just returned from an afternoon of sight seeing. What was meant to be 4 hours of having a quick look around turned into 7 hours of everything. Our hotel has been wonderful. After a bit of discussion we decided up, on taking one of the hotels drivers to have a look at the Red Fort and the Bazaar Markets. The hotel staff said this would take …
Trent wants me to write that we knew from the outset that there would be a disaster, however I don't agree. It's about the adventure, right? So what that I was the most travel sick I've ever been and couldn't engage in lucid conversation with a first time traveller for the first 20 hours of our journey. So what that when we arrived in China for our …
Landed in Delhi around 9.30am indian time. Collected our bags and walked out to meet the taxi, it was about 15km too our hotel. The drive started off quite normal, but seemed to get crazier and crazier as we got closer too our hotel. When we arrived we had a kip then went down for some dinner, Beki had pizza and I had Ghee Pulad with 4 drinks, that …

TravelPod Member ReviewsAjanta Hotel New Delhi
The room was clean and spacious although it didn't have any windows. The breakfast of rice and curry was different too our usual choice but was still ok. The roof top bar was very strange, we drank beer from coffee cups too appear we weren't drinking alcohol for the hotel doesn't have a licence for alcohol.

Historical Traveler Reviews Ajanta Hotel New Delhi
During our trip around India I have definately found the Hotel Ajanta the best place to stay. The rooms which are kept very clean and situated , only 2 - 3 minutes from New Delhi Train Station and a 5 minute journey to Connaught Place.
Back packer hotel
AS USUAL LONELY PLANET NEVER MISS AS HOT!
New Delhi's Ram Nagar, Hotel Ajanta is a clean and safe hotel anyone can afford. We stayed at their room no. 402, it was beautiful.
Also it features a good travel agency which can easily help you through india's difficult moving around.
Check out the RESTAURANT as well.
Never Suggest Hotel Ajanta in Delhi
I have stayed at Ajanta hotel in Dec 05 and found that the rooms are noisey and awful the building is old and depressing with the staff behavior becaue they are only looking to rip you off with the cleaver schemes they show there are much better hotels in the same are then this hotel and I don't recommend this hotel at all.
Our trip in delhi
Coming to Ajanta Hotel was like a break of fresh air compared to the rest of delhi. the staff are extraordinarily helpful to a level that surpasses some 5 star hotels.
We used the inhouse travel service which on the whole was good value for money and we had an ejhoyable 10 day trip around rajasthan.
ajanta hotel is unique in that the staff are honest with thier prices - there is no need to haggle and we were never left feeling we had been "ripped off". Cafe Vagabond is good value for money and the level of service is comparable to that of the hotel.
All in all we really appreciate the assistance we have been given in all aspects of our stay and we will without doubtrecommend this to any body we know visiting delhi.
Likes: Reliable hot shower, prompt email communcations, complementary airport/train station pickup, deluxe rooms are spacious, clean hotel, friendly staff, excellent internet cafe. Lots of nightlife nearby. Complementary newspaper. Very close to NDLS train station
Best Budget Hotel in Delhi
I decided to book my stay in Delhi at Lonely Planet recommended Hotel Ajanta and I passed a good time here. The Airport Pick up service was excellent and also my Agra Trip booked by the agency was very fine.
Room and resaurant were nice and I also appreciated that there is a Internet Cafe provided.
Also thanks to Mr. Avi Arya for the warm welcome.
P.s. I would recommend Hotel Ajanta also to my friends.
Good for money
This is our first time in India, in which we have visited many cities and have stayed in many hotels.
According to the advise of our son who lives in Moayapur, we are staying in Hotel Ajanta, enjoying the excellent level of the recentelly redesigned rooms. Besides, we are very pleased with the staff, who have always been very friendly and helpful with us.
We think that our son recommendations was the best option for us, considering the realtion between price and facilities.
Just a few blocks away - and a 7 or 8 minute walk - from New Delhi's main railway station and the famous Pahar Ganj shopping bazaar is a two or three star (can't remember which) pleasant and attractive hotel with very reasonable rates. The hotel has a good restaurant, 24 hour room service, most rooms have color TVs, A/C, modern bathrooms with 24 hour hot water. The hotel management may try to get you to take one of the expensive "deluxe" rooms for over US$50 - do not take it. The regular rooms at 770 Rupees - about US$18 was very clean and comfortable with the above mentioned amenities. Unfortunately the street this hotel is situated is noisy, dirty, full of cheap small hotels and grimy eating places, cows wander around (watch your step!), the pavements are broken and rough .... in other words, a really smelly run down tenement neighborhood. It is not an unsafe neighborhood, however, and if you are a traveller with experience in Third World poor countries (as I am) I can recommend the Hotel Ajanta. If it's your first trip to India, I suggest you spend a hundred dollars a night and stay in a first class hotel in a nicer part of the city.
