If you want to know a man claiming himself to be a Brahmin but actually a unscrupulous thief, then be sure that it is RAJA, the so called in charge of this Hotel, is the man befitting the definition. This scoundrel charged Rs 7000/- in advance, Rs 4000/- for a filthy camel ride, and a third rate indecent night show...

The pattern to catch the 'prey' look similar. look at travelers boarding down from the train (preferably AC coaches) and offer them a free ride to the hotel (wherever you want to go). Cross - sell the safari and night stay in their hotel, top it up with a free drop back to the railway station - and you are...

Like others on these reviews, I was approached on the train and was told about this extremely cheap hotel- I thought that it was amazing how cheap it was. I asked why and he told me that it is a new hotel so they are trying to promote their hotel. I am a 23 year old female who was traveling...

I was travelling with my partner from Delhi to Jaisalmer on the train, we had a basic idea of where we wanted to stay when before the last stop a man came to our booth with his business card and suggested his hotel. He said it had A/C, was clean, had a swimming pool and 5 minutes walk from the...

I can't believe I let my guard down here! After travelling for 4 months, I should have known better! This place is a filthy, disgusting dump with lying, cheating staff after one thing... Money, money and more money! They are so disrespectful and as soon as you arrive they put the presure on to do a safari. We agreed to...

Never let your guard down in India, true. But we were tired, dirty and smelly after 6 weeks continuous travelling, and took the advice of the Samrat's supposed "sister hotel" in Jodhpur, Kuku, that this was a cheap, clean and welcoming place to stay. Sadly not. Within minutes of arriving, we were given the hard sell for camel safaris by...

Like most of the other reviewers for this hotel, we were recruited on the train. The hotel sounded like an ok deal, and we didn't have any real plans. We were taken to the hotel, and found if to be dirty and uninviting. The guy who picked us up at the train kept trying to get us to book a...

As with all the other reviewers i was met at the train station by the owners brother. At first he appeared to be friendly but a little pushy. Almost as soon as i arrived at the hotel the brother started trying to sell me a camal safari, i said i'd like to think it over and he seemed very upset....
