Gafur and gazi were great hosts during my stay. Very helpful and friendly. Amazing mango juice! Like other hotels in the area the hotel is part of the 800 year old fort which is unique about Jaisalmer.

We had a nice stay here. The rooms were not spotless but they were acceptable in terms of cleanliness. We didn't have any hot water. The location is great with a nice rooftop cafe and good food cooked for us by Gafur and the boys who were all very friendly. They sleep in the downstairs lobby as is often the...

This was my first visit to Jaisalmer & looking at the experience we had, I am sure we will be back to the city again in the next vacations. Special thanks to Mr. Babu who ensured that we must enjoy the royal experience of Jaisalmer in style. The moment we entered in were amazed by the kind of architecture and...

My reviews on Trip Advisor to date have all been positive but I can unequivocally say that this one is going to be as negative as they come! We arrived for one night at the Desert Haveli Guest House in the first week of January. Like others, I had read the reviews and most of them were excellent. When we...

We had a great stay at this Guest House - extremely helpful and friendly staff and even a room upgrade! The location inside the fort is excellent and there are wonderful views from the rooftop restaurant. The restaurant has great food and one of the best chais we've had in India so far! Give it a go!

People who run this Haveli are very supportive and helpful. They need to keep the hotel clean and offer good food at right price. you will find dust even when you are staying at King's room. But People are too good.

The guys who run this place are all super nice. I will rate the hotel, situated right by the Jain temples,inside the Fort, as "could do better" because some basic cleanliness was lacking: the towel was not just grey, which can happen, it was full of holes. Though the bottom sheet was clean, the pillowcases were stained enough that I...

All time amazing opportunity to stay in the national monument/museum that is golden fort of Jaisalmer(main attraction of the Jaisalmer) ,specially for history-art loving tourists. This Fairy land building situated on south side of the rampart of the fort claimed to be more than 450 years old. It belongs to a divisional magistrate of state time from there and the current owner himself is the successor . The guest house has fabulous rooms and the building has been kept intact with original golden stone walls and full of characters acclaimed design. Its unique atmosphere makes it a great place to stay. The staff are all friendly and the roof-top restaurant provides not only good food but also acclaimed sweeping views of Jaisalmer's main attractions.
