The great part of this hotel is the decor and the location. The views on offer are wonderful as the hotel is located within the walls of the fort. There are several terraces for relaxing and enjoying the views of the fort entrance and the city of Jaisalmer.
We stayed here for two nights and then went on a camel trek with the same company. When we came back, we transferred to their partner hotel the KB Lodge. We stored our luggage at Killa Bhawan and they were supposed to keep it and deliver it to us at their partner hotel KB Lodge when we returned from the camel safari. We had our bags returned with the exception of one of our bags. We let the staff know that we were missing one bag and they offered us no answers or explanations - in fact, the owner suggested that I had probably lost it or had actually never left it with them. Needless to say, they didn't offer any compensation for the bag they lost but I didn't appreciate the fact that they suggested it was my own mistake as to why the bag had disappeared.
The rooms vary in size and comfort. The rooms downstairs can be a bit noisy as they are near the kitchen and right next to the area the owners claim is not the reception area. Between the noise of the kitchen and the noise of them receiving guests and checking people in and out right outside your room, I would suggest to try to get a room upstairs.
The decor is magnificent and this is a place where you might want to stay for a few days. It's peaceful interior and comfortable setting make it a place to remember. It's just unfortunate that I had my experience soured by the loss of my bag while it was in their care.
