“Great Value”
Reviewed 8 March 2013

Felt very happy in our cheapest accommodation in India for 250 rupees. The only drawback is the open airchannels in the middle. Late arriving Indian guests made an awful racket around midnight for a long time, and it travels through the airholes.
Mittu was lovely and looked after us really well. Not sure, though, that the food he cooks with so much love is the the best we've had, but it was okay, and the view great.

A nice clean place with decent rooms, great location and good hot showers.

The team here were helpful and nice also - not to pushy trying to sell you camel trips etc which is refreshing.

A few small issues:

Pillows are like squares of foam and very uncomfortable

There are noisy pigeons who sit on the window so bring ear plugs unless you want to be woken at day break

Bedding is single sheets on a double bed and a large blanket so not ideal for a double room

I think there are two Ganesh hotels in Jaisalmer. I just want to write about one, just in front of an internet caffee in the corner where a change money office it is. The owner is Nepali
I am a woman travelling alone. He looked to me very friendly at the beginning when we had a couple of chats. However, one night after I had dinner in the restaurant upstairs, alone (he was in kitchen and we talked a bit), later that night, after going down saying I was very tired, he came to my door and woke me up after repeated knocks. I shout I was sleeping since it was annoying to get woked up. He then reply "dinner?" when he knew I had dinner half an hour earlier.
He was walking around the corridor. I got scared and check everything was locked. Finally he left after saying good night
It was very scary. Next morning I told him straight and he kept saying he is married and was a misunderstanding. I accused him of what he wanted at that time at night knocking at my door, whether he would do it with a man
An experience that left me a very bad taste while leaving. Hotel is good but I think owner is not to be trusted

Reviewed 16 September 2012

We met the perfectly agreeable hotelier, Sebas, after arranging a camel trek (Ganesh Travels is also the cheapest place we found for this - 550Rs per day or we paid 950Rs for a day and a half. Most agencies don't offer a discount for half days). The room was clean, comfortable, had a bathroom, a balcony, wifi, and most importantly an enormously generous and kind staff who were also good conversation as we enjoyed the rooftop restaurant and the great food they have on offer. The room (for two) was 350Rs, a price inconceivably low for the services rendered. We have found a hotel this pleasant in no other city so far in India and in some of them we have paid ten times what we paid here. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Room Tip: We only saw the room we stayed in. The fan keeps the room temperate so perhaps AC is unnecessary..
