“Welcomes!”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

Found this hotel by chance, wasn't recommended in our guide book but I think it should be. We were initially attracted to the place because we were offered a cheap room. Decided to stay because the hotel was very clean and the room was immaculate, which I think most people can agree is a big deal. Had a comfortable clean bed, tv and hot water at a very fair price. Staff was excellent, helped us navigate around the city and helped us book a ticket to our next destination. Roof top restaurant was also excellent, curry was made fresh and you get a stunning view of the Fort. Worth taking a look if you're in Jaisalmer!

We found this hotel after it was recommended by a couple we met on safari and we couldn't have been more pleased.
The rooms were excellent value for the price we paid, a big bed, clean and they had hot water. Kamal a worker at the hotel was friendly and approachable. The wifi didn't work straight away on my phone and the owner offered me his lap top to use.
The roof top restaurant looked basic but the food was gorgeous and kamal gave us blankets as it was cold.
Can't rate this hotel enough!

We booked a room for two nights at Jeet Mahal in Jaisalmer. Upon arrival we were asked to pay in advance, which we hadn't been asked to do in other hotels in India. Big mistake. The room was ok, but not more than that and when we opened the windows the noise from outside was unbearable. The air conditioner didn't work properly and we couldn't sleep. There was no warm water. We had to ask the owner to turn on the boiler for hot water which he agreed to do only once a day. After the first night we wanted to leave but they refused to refund us, so we moved to another room that did not face the street. A small, windowless room. The owner was very unpleasant throughout our stay.

The food in the rooftop restaurant is delicious - the best we've had in our five weeks in India. The owner is passionate about the local cuisine and will happily talk you through the menu and offer his recommendations. The menu focuses on dishes from Rajasthan - we tried Sev Tomato and Gwarphali Chibdi, both of which were delicious.

A great, family run restaurant and hotel.

I found Hotel Jeet Mahal by accident after searching for a replacement for the hotel I was staying in the fort area, in which I felt really pressured and uncomfortable. As I arrived at Hotel Jeet Mahal the atmosphere was completely different, there was no pressure to take part in the camel safaris that the hotel run, unlike many of the other hotels in the area and the staff immediately greeted me warmly. Kamal, the chef from the rooftop restaurant, was a friendly and genuine guy who was always cheerful and happy to help in any way. I sat with some friends on the roof drinking in the evening (alcohol that we had bought from outside the hotel - which was not an issue) and listened to kamals incredible story of how he arrived in Jaisalmer and began working in the hotel. The rooftop had a good view of the fort and the food kamal made me for lunch was fairly priced and delicious. I would definitely recommend the hotel to people staying in jaisalmer and would stay there again.

We stopped over at Jeet Mahal one evening to enjoy the rooftop views and have some food and drinks with a friend who we had met on a camel safari.
We were warmly welcomed by the lovely Kamal who explained that this is now our home and he couldn't do enough for us.
We spent the night talking and hearing Kamals fascinating story - we were so enthralled by Kamal himself and the lovely setting of Jeet Mahal we returned the next day for breakfast.
If anyone has time to spare i highly recommend going here and eating - Kamal was an incredible cook - the hotel itself looked very nice but i cannot comment on the rooms as we didn't stay here - but the conversation alone was worth five stars.
I wish the staff at Jeet Mahal, especially Kamal, all the best for the future.

Hotel Jeetmahal has 6 lovely rooms, and is in a great location just outside the Fort gates, and is very close to markets and main attractions in Jaisalmer. The hotel is an old heritage building which was built in the first decade of the eighteenth century by Jeetmal Bissa, who served as an architect at the Royal Palace of Jaisalmer. He surprisingly constructed this fabulous Haveli in his spare time, when he was not required to attend the Royal Palace. The haveli has jharokhas of exquisite carvings and this heritage haveli still has a wonderful atmosphere of old Jaisalmer.
