“Desert King”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2014 via mobile

What can I say about Moti? I can tell you what to expect... A friendly chap who was the most helpful landlord we have encountered so far in India. From the moment he personally came to meet us from our bus stop we felt at ease and safe. The room was more than pleasant with a spectacular view of the fort and outer gate. A great terrace was also a good spot to sit and take in the view of the city. The tariffs were very reasonable and the location inside the fort perfect, tucked away but only 1 minutes walk from the palace museum. Moti put us under no pressure to book a safari through him but we did, and his personal touch extended beyond the walls of his hotel. The safari we enjoyed felt much more personal than we felt a lot of the bigger companies offered. We met the camel driver in his village and had a great two days in the desert. Moti will always be there to look out for your welfare and offer you assistance and advice or a lovely mug of chai should you need it. When I return to Jaisalmer in the future I'll be looking up Moti for certain.

Stayed January 2014, travelled as a couple

Desert King (hotel owner) was unbelievable. He went out of his way to make me feel welcome! Rooms were clean with a great view and great price. Superb location. Desert King also makes the best chai in India!

The man who runs this hotel is the rudest man in India. He knows nothing about customer service. And he charges 5 times the price of anywhere else. He also makes you pay for your full stay when you check in.

The view from the room was nice but not worth the extra cost and the hassle of dealing with such a nasty little man. It is also very noisy there and hard to sleep at night.

Room Tip: Don't stay there.

Good place to stay but be very carefull about costs.We were quoted a price which magically tripled when we were leaving.Lovely accomodation but spoilt by rip off over costs.
