Stayed in the Ajanta for 4 nights recently, found the actual hotel to be ok, the room and shower were acceptable.
It's the front of house staff with their hard sell tactics as soon as you arrive that you need to be careful of. As soon as we had checked in we were shown into the managers office and given the hard sell. Fortunately we only booked the tuktuk tour around Delhi which was cheap and quite good. The following day we wanted to go to the F1 grand prix, the previous day we were quoted 1500, but because we didn't book it the price went up to 2300 which we had no choice but to pay. The driver we were given was hopeless, he had no idea where the racetrack was and we had to navigate ourselves!!!
Given that we felt cheated over the cost of the taxi we decided to check out the price of going to the Taj Mahal, the manager had quoted us 9000. By walking 50m up the road to the Hotel Godwin the price came down to 6500 including a personal guide!!
As already stated there's nothing much wrong with the hotel, just don't trust the management..
