The Ambassador Ajanta
Ranked #13 of 58 Hotels in Aurangabad
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Ambassador Ajanta is a resort cum business hotel located in the heart of the city centre at just 4 Km. from the airport. It has a unique location with more than 13 acres of lush greenery right in the middle of the business district giving you a dose of paradise within the city of Aurangabad which incidentally is home to the famous Ajanta / Ellora caves and is also the closest city. they give pick & drop from airport to hotel.This hotel is near to frozone shopping mall.I stayed for one night. It was not so pleasant stay. Room was specious but not maintained well. very old furniture's, very old Television, badly maintained elevators. Staff at the reception not so well trained or not very warm where as lower level staff makes you feel good. staff at the restaurant very courteous and take care of you well. if you are on vacation you may enjoy as you can walk around the hotel, they got swimming pool maintained quite well in the middle of greenery. if you are looking to have good food you may not enjoy. Breakfast spread is good but taste is not so good. since it is on the main road easy for commuting from this place as you get auto's and taxis. This rated as five star but you do not feel five star facilities except the price for food etc. If just looking for stay and do business or for sight seeing O.K. place.

Room Tip: do not chose lower level rooms. ask for the rooms higher level as well road facing

I stayed at Hotel Ambassador Ajanta, Aurangabad (AAA for short). Nice hotel, nice rooms though not very spacious may be because we had ordered one extra bed in the room. Room Number was 215 and we stayed for one day on 10 August 2013. Location of the hotel was convenient as it was on the way to the Airport.
Front of the hotel was impressive. Entry of the hotel was elegant and staff at front desk were extremely courteous and helpful.
Good thing about the hotel was its swimming pool and sports room. We went for spa but the lady had left and my wife could not avail this service.
Bed were not very comfortable.
Room service also needed improvement. We had ordered two tea but the person brought only one tea. Food in the restaurant was not bad and the chef was taking personal interest by visiting us on our table. Breakfast was good too.
We found that the toilet seat did not have a jet. To our horror, the cistern was not working. Housekeeping promised that they will repair it at the earliest.
Can be recommended for short visit.

We stayed here for two nights in july with a small group of friends while visiting Ajanta and Ellora caves. Very standard hotel with all regular amenities and a nice garden/location including swimming pool. Checkin/checkout was really easy and fast although i understand some had trouble with their bills. Rooms were good---reasonable for price and clean. Bed was a big stiff, and mattress was very thin, but clean and i got good sleep. Bathroom has old fixtures, but clean. We had a wedding one night, but thankfully they ended around 22h30 - 23h00 so it wasn't a major issue. Breakfast was a good buffet---- with omlettes on order as well. The servers tried hard to please our group with lunch and dinner also. Overall--- a good option.

Seriously disappointed and disheartened with this hotel :(
The hotel manager is a punk. Has no manners and is ready to abuse and humiliate the customers. Same goes with the housekeeping staff.
Break fast was a nightmare. Cheap and tasteless food at premium cost :(
Tea was served in cheap plastic glasses(use & throw) with Tiger biscuits in the conference.
The hotel manager and the lousy staff is truly a disgrace.
With all this I find it very strange they claim it to be a 5 star hotel.

I had recently visited Aurangabad and stayed for one day from 19 Apr to 20th Apr 2013 in Ajanta Ambassador Hotel. It is an old hotel in good location. No renovation had been taken place in this area. Facilities in this hotel is good . Food is good but service is very slow. Reception and other staff are good but in room dining staff horrible after 10.30pm they refused to serve any food,cockroaches were found ice bucket,at breakfast while we were eating they cleared everything from serving trays sharp @ 10.30,shame on them .

Room Tip: avoid ambassador if by default then take rooms facing swimming pool

A hotel with old fashioned fittings and decor. The lobby looks opulent and has beautiful wood carvings and brass decor.Loved the Landscapied garden and the pool side where I would walk every evening. However rooms need renovation- I was surprised to see the box TVs compared to LCDs in other hotels. They provide toiletries and tea making facilities . Food is not very tasty and breakfast spread is too sparse for a 4 --star. Room service was pathetic and person answering the phone did not know most of the foods on the menu.. wonder how the foreign tourists were managing.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the pool are quieter. Since hotel is on main road lot of truck traffic sounds

This is a 2-3 star hotel masquerading as a 4-5 star. There is a lot of superficial gloss, but it is really rather ordinary. It seems to be used largely as a jumping-off point for visits to Ajanta and Ellora (these highly recommended! But stay somewhere else)

The food is unremarkable, in a pretentious restaurant with exaggerated prices for what is served. There are actually two very good local restaurants opposite, if you can get across the road...

There is no free wifi - it can be paid for relatively expensively, and that itself runs out after 24 hours (not explained when purchased).

There was a cacophonous 'cultural programme' (ie private event) right below our window throughout one evening, about which we had no warning.

Good swimming pool. Our bathroom was tired and grubby. No centralised tipping system - everyone (but everyone!) seemed to be looking for a tip.

We'll look for somewhere else if ever we are lucky enough to revisit Ajanta and Ellora.
