A great place to stay to visit the ellora cave network. Comfortable rooms. Clean, safe, and very friendly staff. My visit here was made easy with the help of a local tour guide company based in Fardapur. I if you need a safe multilingual guide to tour the local sights I would recommend Ali Asharaf. Fluent in English, Japanese, Korean,... More

Located right next to the temple complex at Ellora, offers a good stay option that allows you to wake up early to visit the caves @6AM. The rooms i stayed in was average. Food was alright. View from the hotel to the temple complex is pretty grand though/ Thanks to my host Santhosh for his help with my itenrary

This place has stayed the same for years! Why? No competition! Well situated, the bungalow concept is interesting but the beds are hard and I haven't seen any improvement over the years. Decent place, barely. Restaurant is average too. Ajanta & Ellora deserve an alternative!

Visited Kailas restaurant for lunch. Nothing memorable about this visit. The Chana Masala and Handi Paneer tasted the same as they had the same gravy. The Parsi kulfi is something I would give them credit for. Hygiene is not their forte. The waiter used the broom for sweeping and did not wash his hands before continuing to serve. Had to... More

They are surviving simply based on their location. The fact is that they are walking distance from the caves and they offer cave facing rooms. A wise man once told me that there is no good or bad hotel. They are just good or bad for the price they charge. This place is run by management who knows they are... More

This was an unplanned stay for us. Being the only decent looking hotel near by Ellora caves, we opted to stay here. Prices are very high due to its promixity to the caves. But the services was very slow and rooms were far off from reception area. No intercom, no cards accepted and most of the mobile network dont work... More

The staff is really nice, as is the quality of the food. Try their khichdi and thecha (a really hot concoction of green chillies, garlic and salt, tossed in a little oil in a wok ). The wholesome blandness of the daal khichdi contrasts beautifully with the sharp searing hotness of the thecha. Awesome. Also, the location is superb. Just... More

Amazing place to stay in Ellora...!!! "Cave view cottages are best rooms..." "Corner suites are large and sunny". I stayed there for the weekend and thoroughly enjoyed the calm environment in the hotel...
