This hotel is inside fort.Its a simple hotel.Dont expect any luxury.The owner Vyas uncle is a sweet person.He has a great knowledge about this place.Though little bit higher priced but the home made food is excellent.

I wasn't expecting to find any accommodation this cheap while planning to stay inside India's only working fort.

It's a modest place, don't expect any luxury except a bed, fan, western toilet and well, the best of them all, a near perfect sunset from the edge of the fort wall.

Location of the hotel is Superb. The hotel is run by Vyas Family. It is more like a home guest house. Excellent food. Very co-operative owners.

Must drink is India tea (Masala Chai). Especially in winters.

Location of the hotel is superb and its a thrilling experience to stay within the fort. But few things I want to share with the viewers. Firstly, please before check in the hotel, be sure that whatever room you have booked, they are offering the same. Secondly, verify the rates of camel safari with other travel agents (there is one travel agent at every step both inside and outside the fort). It is too expensive offered by this hotel.

A guest hotel located at the top of the Jaisalmer Fort, you can have the best view of Jaisalmer, since it is on the top, you can stay out of the crowd and enjoy a peaceful moment with the nice view on the roof top

So this is what it feels like to stay inside a fort we thought, as we sipped the freshly brewed tea and watched the sun spread it soft pink glow. 'Exceptional'; that'll be an understatement to describe our stay at this hotel. Mr. Vyas is one of the most helpful hotel owner I've ever seen, the key to it I believe is in interacting with the lodgers as a family member and understanding their needs. From picking us up from the Railway station, to arranging a local guide, helping us choose a desert safari which suited our budget; he did everything he could, to make our stay at Jaisalmer a memorable one. Book this hotel and relax, let Mr. Vyas mesmerize you with his charm.

One HI-Choice destination at Jaisalmer- Rajasthan is undoubtedly the Golden Fort (well known as Sonar Kella).... The hotel is inside this live fort!.. Its a thrilling experience passing time on the roof-tops, the open streets inside the fort....It easily recaps the scenes from the famous bengali movie "SONAR KELLA" by Satyajit Roy.. The rooms are clean , bathrooms are OK, the owner was very friendly... It is a family hotel (the owner stays with his family in the same house and 4-5 double bedded rooms are left for the guests)... The tiffin / breakfast were arranged by the owner but, u have to come down from the fort for lunch / dinner.
One should enjoy the view of Sunrise and the view of total Jaisalmer city from the rooftop of the hotel.

Room Tip: first floor rooms have very good view from the adjacent open terace
