“Plesant Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Smooth telephonic booking for me and my wife en route from jaipur to chenai, As we arrived early morning and had to check-out next day early morning, we requested a early check-in which they helpfully agreed, was promised complementary break-fast and airport drop(in lieu of pickup). But when I checked it I was told the breakfast will be complementary only for the next day, which was disappointing as I had to catch a early morning flight.
Room was basic,clean and comfortable.Airport drop was prompt and effecient, Well stocked mini-bar. had to pay for the "Complementary" breakfast buffet , but it was very good, also the dinner was great, but a bit expensive.
Will definitely stay again,but will ensure the breakfast can be practically availed.

Dear Guest,
Glad to know it was all smooth at the Ajanta. You enjoyed the pickup service, found the room comfortable and clean and liked the breakfast.
Actually check in is at 12 noon. Since you had booked for one day, we provide one days free breakfast. We agreed to an early check in but we could not provide you two days breakfast complimentary.
Glad you enjoyed your stay.
Regards,
The Hotel Ajanta Team

Need to gear up a bit more to be remain on the top on the pools of hundreds hotels in this area. Compromising on tariff would ultimately affect the services & standard. My last stay was an example for many. Don't be too late now. Please see the quality of linen (towel & sheet) & overall cleaning. Shall come back next fortnight to feel the changes. Thank you.

Room Tip: Physically check the room you want to check in before signing on GRC.

Seeing other positive reviews now probably I was cheated as I booked the hotel online. Hotel is in a shady place and nothing like the pictures posted. I was made to wait for 2 long hours before checking in and given a room with 4 plain walls, completely closed and suffocating. AC was didn't work properly which made the closed room humid. TV was big and worked, bathroom was dripping, taps stained, tiles broken.
It is close to Railway station so does not face problem with business and hence the lack of hospitality.

Checked out within a day.

Room Tip: stay clear

Good service; they offer a airport pick-up for a good price. Internet didn't work every day. The rooms are big enough with AC! But at night the AC makes too much noise. The bathroom is clean and big and always hot water.

The location of the hotel is okay, no noise pollution but when you want to visit tourist attractions you have to take a taxi (but the hotel arranged it for us for a good price).

Room Tip: Take the deluxe rooms

Our trip was delayed by 3 days. Although we advised the hotel, our airport pickup was not there upon arrival. However, we called them and they arranged for a taxi to take us to the hotel - they spoke to the taxi driver who took us directly to the hotel without further issues. The check-in was brief (copies of our passports as well as "big ledger book sign-in") and off we went to our room which was pleasant, clean, albeit a bit weathered (compared to the web photos we saw) but quiet. Breakfast includes numerous choices and is quite good. Actually, all the food we ordered from their restaurant was quite good (except maybe for the mutton which is different than the lamb we are used to) and we did not get sick (do not drink any local water though - stick to bottled water). As other travelers mention in their review, we were also asked what our plans were - if you're not interested in their tours or taxis, simply reply that all your plans are taken care of :) So all in all, our stay was fairly pleasant. The only thing that annoyed us is that every time our room was cleaned, we never got new clean towels or bottled water (the mini bar was never restocked either but the good news is that they do not surcharge their mini bar items!). This meant that every evening, we had to call room service to get towels and water which were promptly delivered by a staff member who was all too happy to accept your generous tip... Please note that this is not uncommon with the 1 to 3 star hotels and so we did not lower the star rating because of it. Overall, the staff was excellent and very pleasant. A minor issue upon checkout was quickly and pleasantly dealt with which was greatly appreciated.
A note on the tours they offer: we had booked online private tours to Agra and to Jaipur. Both were excellent and recommended. But we also booked 2 tours from Ajanta and these were also excellent and recommended. We could understand the "English-speaking" driver who was very eager to please and took us everywhere we wanted to go. As usual, there are always stops to the "recommended" shops which give drivers kick-backs but if you're prepared, you know you don't have to buy and if you do, you can have fun bargaining (especially during low season)!

Room Tip: The rooms with balconies (suites?) seem much nicer.

Like most of the hotels provide other than that shown on their websites. Ajanta had provided all of the things as said. I had also booked Airport Pickup, which worked perfectly good. They arrived on time. Even if, I was late due to my baggage clearance but they are there till then. Check in procedure is very smooth. Photo Id proofs of all the accompanied travelers are required. Room was good. In a most silent zone as most of the hotels have very much noise. Room service is good. Food is good. Rooftop hotel is also present but I didn't recommend you because when I visited the furniture there is old enough that I was frightened so that It will not break.

Room Tip: Take photo id proofs of all the travelers'. Try to take room of higher floors for silent stay.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for acknowledging that unlike some our rooms on the website are actually the rooms in our Hotel. Our airport pick up facility has been appreciated by all our guests including yourself. Glad you found the rooms nice and silent as well.

The rooftop is now all clean and spruced up ready to welcome you again.

So welcome back.
