It is incredible to stay in historic place turned into a hotel. It is beautiful with great terraces and a fantastic view. BUT with few touches it could turn into a GREAT place, the bathrooms for example. the plastic curtain was pretty old and the shower head was spraying water everywhere so I had to clean it myself and it...

Dear Sir I'm the owner of Killa Bhawan and was quite displeased reading your comment. i deeply apologize for the inconvenience caused and assure you that we will take care of the shower situation you have described. But I cannot follow you on the TV issue as we feel that a TV wouldn't be appropriate in such a place....The windows...

Beautiful and exotic property located in the actual fort of Jaisalmer. I almost skipped over Jaisalmer in planning my itinerary, but staying at this hotel made me so happy I did not. It must be said that this hotel is actually IN THE FORT, so it would be absurd to think you can find all 5 star amenities and such...

You choose this hotel in the fort because precisely of that. It is located inside Jaisalmer fort, the only working fort in India where there are over 300 families living inside the fort. It is not everyday that you can say you have stayed in a fort that is over 800 years old. Killa Bhawan has the modern comforts that...

Brilliant accommodation in the Jaisalmer Fort. Wonderful location, engaging proprietor, very nice and professional staff, great view from the terrace at breakfast. All sights easily to be reached on foot. We loved it! Stayed two nights?

Great location, stunning view of the city and the fort. Breakfast only (very average quality ). No pressure in the shower and cold water only. Pricely for the level of service. Cleaning could be more neat. Needs to be modernised a bit. Go and have dinner at the Italian restaurant at the bottom of the fort. Great pizzas.

There is no comparison to staying in the fort. Wonderful terrace with amazing views of the city. Breakfast was served there with the best fresh squeezed orange juice I've ever had. The staff was not merely courteous, friendly, and efficient, but they went out of their way to be helpful. Good location for visiting the temples inside the fort and...

Lovely hotel in the fort - although the rooms may be a bit on the small side they are very nice, with private bathroom. Hotel is centrally located within walking distance of most places to visit. Staff exceptionally friendly and helpfull. Love the attitude of staff - helped us with a booking for desert excursion and overnight stay. Breakfast with...

Sure, you can stay outside the town at the new Marriott, but this is the real thing. No car traffic inside the actual fort, so you are taken to the hotel by tuk-tuk. We had rooms 9 and 10, which are on the top level, and both were amazing. The staff served tea anytime up there on the terrace, and...

We spied this rooftop restaurant from the Patwa Haveli and visited for lunch. Nice views and friendly service. Very helpful staff. We opted for non-Indian cuisine and both the omelet and grilled cheese sandwich were excellent. Fantastic French fries.

Hands down your best place to stay in Jaisalmer. At killa bhawan, you'll experience the very best terrace/roof top patio, and it's in the fort itself. Sip your morning masala chai (it's a good one) with your feet up watching the city come to life below, and the pigeons dance off the side of the fort while the sun comes...
