I loved my stay at Hotel Haveli. I stayed way longer than I had intended to because I had such a nice time there.
The second night I was there, I went on a very reasonably priced non-touristic camel safari arranged by Issack and it was exactly what I had wanted. A quiet trek through the desert on camel back, arriving at the dunes and watching the sunset, followed by dinner and conversation, and a very comfortable sleep under a ridiculously star-filled sky. The hotel let me keep my things in my room while I was gone on the safari so I didn't need to pack and unpack when I returned which was nice.
The hotel is very close to everything you would want to see in Jaisalmer. Issack made me a map so I could find my way around the city. My room in the hotel was very clean and a good size. The bathroom was huge which was rare on my trip all over India. Whenever I needed something cleaned or something from the market, one of the workers would take care of it for me. They were extremely helpful! The food from the rooftop restaurant is good and priced fairly too.
The atmosphere of the hotel is so relaxed and comfortable, I couldn't help but want to stay longer. I often found myself on the roof just taking in the amazing views and the desert breeze (and dance in the occasional rainstorm!) Issack and Barkat were excellent conversationalists and we spent a lot of time talking and sharing our knowledge, culture, and jokes with each other. I would definitely return if I find myself back in India.
