I have stayed this hotel with my friends twice. We were 6 group of people and the staff prepared for us so nice rooms. The rooms were clean and tidy. One of the great thing about this hotel is the location. Usually, most of hotels in Jaisalmer is out of fort though, this hotel is located on the fort. From...

This was our third visit to Jaisalmer and we have always stayed at Surja. Raja and Yogi, the managers, go out of their way to make their guests have a pleasant stay. They are so personable that we really feel at home there. We never feel pressured to book an outing, or camel trip. Oscar, one of the many good...

We arrived with train and got advised by a friend to look for this guesthouse. The staff is friendly, the rooms are ok (dont compare to european standards), the view from room and rooftop restaurant is breathtaking. Like most hotels in india, this not suitable for handycapped ppl or ppl with leg problems. The stairways are like mountains. But food...

My friends and I recently stayed at Hotel Surja and I must say that the views from the rooftop restaurant are top notch. The yummy food is served by a pleasant staff and the rooms are comfortable. The real winner at Hotel Surja is my man Yogi who, for three days straight, did everything he could to help my friends...

Surja guest house is located on the Fort and has a really great rooftop with the best view on Jaisalmer! During the day you can see all the way up to the desert and during the night you see all the lights of the town. The room was cosy and clean and had a little balcony of its own. There's...

We had a balcony with a great city view. Some of our favourite time in Jaisalmer was spent out there watching the world go by. Food upstairs was pretty good. We were slightly unimpressed that we were offered "welcome drinks" and then charged for them. They were helpful arranging transportation to Jodhpur though our driver was pulled over by the...

Arrived on the morning coach from Udaipur and were met which was very useful as we were pretty mangled by the journey. The view from the roof terrace is magnificent. Suraj is one of three consecutive hotels each with its own roof terrace facing back to the east. The view is spectacular. We opted for the cheaper room with a...

This is up on the fort! The views are stunning as from any guest house up on the Fort! The staff is super friendly and service they provided in restaurant is excellent. Hot water available and a good hippie vibe to this place! Watching sunset and sunrise from up here was simply amazing! The room was not what it looked...

Stayed at this place as a solo female and Aska was super accommodating and helped me with so much. He let me store my backpack there while I went to an overnight safari (booked with another travel agency even though the hotel actually can book it for you). It is inside the fort so very convenient. They pick you up...
