“Very atmospheric place to stay!”
Reviewed 12 January 2014 via mobile

We really enjoyed our stay here! The room was filled with character and was very comfortable. The rooftop restaurant has amazing views over the fort, especially good at sunrise and after dark! The waiters were very friendly and helpful too.

Stayed December 2013

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights over the New Year period. We paid a lot of money for our room, 4750 rupees, plus a Festive Season surcharge of 2150 rupees per night. We had requested a Suite Room and were very disappointed with the size and quality of the room. A more appropriate rate would have been 2500 rupees per night. The bathroom was very small with the shower head in the middle of the room which meant that everything got soaked when we had a shower. The hot water ran out very quickly. I was sick with a cold and had to spend a day in bed. I was hoping to watch movies all day, but the sound and picture quality were terrible. There is no Wi-Fi in the rooms either, although there is free Wi-Fi in the reception area. We did ask to change rooms when we first arrived and the Suite Rooms were all pretty much the same. The Deluxe Rooms are bigger and nicer with much bigger bathrooms and are the same price as the Suite Rooms, so we felt that we had been over-charged. There is a pleasant roof top restaurant with a view over the fort, but it is a very cold place to eat breakfast and dinner, so we ended up eating in our room. The breakfast buffet was very average, but the room service food we had was good. The staff were mostly very good, especially the manager and the restaurant manager, but the guy who works on reception was not very friendly or helpful. We would definitely NOT recommend using him for booking travel services and taxis. A lot of people seemed to be experiencing problems with train tickets and we had a problem with our taxi driver to Jodhpur who had no idea where he was going. There are a few plus points though. Everything was very clean, the pool looked nice although it was too cold for us to use it, and the location is very good, just outside the Fort. I would recommend this hotel only if you pay 2500 rupees a night for a so-called "Suite" and maybe 3000 rupees for a "Deluxe" room.

Room Tip: Go for a Deluxe Room, they are much nicer and bigger than the Suites and are the same price.

We had one night at the The Royale in November and were very satisfy by the hotel. The room we had was lovely decorated with an amazing view on the fort. The whole place was very clean, comfortable and the staff was incredibly nice and attentive. The restaurant on the rooftop have a wonderful view on the illuminated fort and the food was delicious. Moreover, The Royal have a great location in Jaisalmer, only 5 minutes walk from the fort and surrounding markets. It was a real pleasure staying there :)

You are reading a review from someone who didnt even realise they had a pool! Wouldnt have used it anyway.We had a room on the ground floor of the main building.Clean and comfortable. Nice view from the roof restaurant and food was good and reasonably priced .They asked how we liked it spiced (Hot!). Very convenient location.

Room Tip: Rooms on the on ground floor main building are close to reception which has loud telephone and buzz...

This hotel is in a great location within 10 mins walk from the entrance to the fort and the rooftop restaurant has great views.....thats the good points. The A/C in my room didn't work so I was moved to a different room where the hot water didn't work. The towels were soiled and absolutely filthy. Breakfast was a joke, minimal choice served by children who were wearing the dirtiest uniforms ever. Our group went out for breakfast on the second day of our stay. (10 metres past the fort, street stall selling fresh indian breakfast pasties, you'll know the one as its really busy and food very tasty). The man in reception was completely indifferent to my complaints, particularly about the vile towels., the pool was so cold it was un-useable.
This has the potential to be a great hotel however I think the owners are putting in no effort as the location brings in visitors. There are other hotels in town with good views and auto rickshaws are cheap and plentiful, I wouldn't go back. This was easily the worst hotel of the 10 or so that I stayed in while in India.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else.

This hotel was in a great position just under the fort. The welcome was really friendly with a cup of tea being offered as soon as we walked through the door and bottled water being offered. The room was fine, with beautiful curtain hangings, overlooking the very attractive pool area. We didn't have dinner in the hotel but breakfast, served on the roof restaurant, was fine. We didn't have any hot water - but then we were in India!
