Beautifully located in Ellora, facing the majestic caves. Centrally located near Ellora gate and 5 mins walk from Grishneshwar temple which was so convenient and added to the excitement. This older hotel still has a lot of old charm and ambiance. The property garden gives a panoramic view of Ellora caves. The restaurant had great food and views overlooking the... More

The room was spacious, comfortable and kind of campy. Kind of felt like I had gone back in time to the 60's... Smokey the Bear times. There was a big swing outside that we were able to sit on and see the entrance to the caves. Fun family place, like I said campy so don't expect a 5 star hotel.... More

This is not a starred hotel, but clean and neat. The high point is the lawn which faces the caves, where one can sit around and have dinner or a chilled glass of beer. In the mornings, a lot of birds come in and we managed to spy a hornbill couple too! The rooms are just fine, with a decent... More

If you are visiting Ellora, I recommended you stay at Hotel Kailas! While you may find cheaper options in Auranagabad, staying a stone throw away from Ellora in this quaint little boutique hotel adds a definitive charm to your overall stay! While their food is nothing to write home about, their property is amazing. After a tiring long day of... More

We visited this place in March 14. It is very nice far away from Aurangabad. Walking distance from Ellora caves. So close that we visited them every day. GOOD The property is very good. Clean and well maintained. Clean rooms with a small sit out. Well done. IMPROVEMENT The only place for them to improve is the food. At best... More

We stayed here to see the caves at Ellora, which are within walking distance. The hotel has very good gardens and a good restaurant on site. There are single cottages on site but we stayed in a room at the end of a corridor in the motel. the room was terrible, stank of mould, dirty and no windows. It felt... More

Big rooms very expensive, the restaurant also very expensive and poor quality. if you want to visit ellora it will be better stay in aurangabat and visit Ellora in one day. They don't have wifi, but they have signal, and the price for use the computer is excessive and is never doesn' t work.

We stayed (two of us) March 8-10 2014. On the first day we arrived and explored Ellora Caves which are just steps away from the hotel entrance. On the second day we ventured to Ajanta. Ms. Shah helped us to arrange a taxi and our driver was excellent. The taxi company was Capital Travels and works closely with the hotel.... More

Well maintained lawns, huge rooms and a quiet sleep in the night. What more can one ask for? This is the only hotel which is decent in this area and so the pricing is high. We had booked non-AC rooms and it worked out to 1800 for double bed (10% luxury tax and 7.42% service tax extra) and an extra... More
