We've stopped over in Delhi on many occasions over the past 15 years or so and usually stay in the Parahganj area because of its convenient location close to the station. We've had reasonable rooms and truly awful ones and so coming across Hotel Ajanta as we passed through Delhi twice on our most recent visit to India was a welcome discovery. It will be our first choice in future. Its location on the (relatively) quieter Arakashan Road is one factor in its favour; the second is the friendliness, cheerfulness and efficiency of the staff. We had no complaints at all about the delux room we opted for - it was clean, spacious and well-equipped and at 2400rps including airport pickup and breakfast we certainly paid more in India for rooms that were nowhere near as good. I can't speak for the cheaper rooms.
Having stayed there earlier on our trip and left a bag with them, they gave us the use of a room for a quick shower and a change of clothes as we passed through on the way to the airport without charge or fuss. I can't imagine many hotels in the area doing that.
As others have noted in reviews here, there is an attempt to steer you towards their travel agent who sits in an office just behind reception - by asking if you want a map of Delhi for example - but it's not a hard sell and forewarned is forearmed.
Our only real plea for the management is to do something about improving their communication. Emails to them get an instant automatic reply from 'Shefali at the Reservation Desk' inviting you to watch promotional videos and promising to get back to you. She never did. Telephone calls informing them of a change of plan etc hadn't seemed to have filtered through to their reservation desk when we eventually arrived. None of these would prevent us from using Ajanta again the next time we are in Delhi however.
