“nice hotel, but beware of the camel safari”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

The hotel is nice, in a good location just outside the fort, with a nice view of the fort from the rooftop. the room is spacious and reasonably clean. the AC was not working perfectly, but it was enough to get a relief from the 42 degree heat outside. Good value for what I got, but I fell on their camel safari trap. The experience was nice, I spent a pleasant and safe night in the desert, but later I found I spent almost 3 times more than what was offered by Ganesh Travels (inside the fort) for exactly the same tour (the "non-touristy" dunes).

A clean and central hotel with decent facilities. The staff are very friendly and helpful and although they offer camel tours not too pushy about them. They did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable and even went as far as helping me find accommodation and a free transfer in the next town. The rooftop restaurant is brilliant, a nice place to chill out with a beautiful view of the fort. The prices were amongst the cheapest we found in jaisalmer. We didn't have a bad meal there and unlike most places we found in India the food was quick and all our food came out at the same time. The swimming pool was a questionable colour but we used it and survived. Don't bother getting a room with a fan it was very uncomfortable but their rooms with aircon are reasonably priced (600 rupees for 3 people). They don't provide toilet roll though so bring your own and if you need regular or reliable wifi then you'll need to look elsewhere for that. I would definitely recommend golden city and return if I had the chance.

This hotel was great, it had great service, a decent restaurant with a wide menu and some fast good quality cooking. The hotel has a nice swimming pole and a very nice owner, but don't forget to bargain ;) The owner is originaly from a dessert village and you can book a safari with him to, prices will vary van 750 rup. to 2000 rup. depending on what you want and you barganing skills :)

Room Tip: Ask for a room with balcony

服務很好,人群友善。熱季來有談到不錯的價格,經理人很熱心,幫忙許多!夏天的齋沙默爾沒有想像中熱,然後沙漠城市的清晨、日落和夜晚都是很美的,是一個值得推薦的旅行地:)Very nice service and friendly people. Bikahn just drive toward and forward to the train station. welcome tea is very lovable. Nice blanket and A/C room, outside with a small balcony each room is the perfect place I adore. Get into city easier :)

Room Tip: They also offer the camel safari and lots of different service. Try your best to get the best deal...

It ended up being a little more expensive than super budget options, but they did a lot for us. They picked us up from the train station, gave us a room to shower, let us see the city, took us on a safari overnight, took us back to a shower, let us see the city again, and then drive us back to the train station.

It was very convenient and the safari was great. It was off season so it was very isolated and intimate. I have no regrets from this portion of the trip.

I'm so grumpy I don't actually know what to say or where to start!
Worst hotel I have ever been to!
The pool is like a swamp!!
You can't see the bottom!
There are empty bottles floating in it.
I wouldn't let a stray dog in it let alone my toe!
The room........... !!!
We where quoted 1200 by email but after asking for the best price we where quoted 750. Which from the OLD pictures I thought was a bargain....
It was not!
I wouldn't pay more than 200 for this room.
Someone had clearly wee'd in the corner as it stank of urin!
The shower was so covered in limescale it barley worked.
There was someone else's hair everywhere!!
The ac looked like it would electrocute you!
The "roof garden resturant"!! All they had was plain toast that they charged us 50 for 4 slices!
There is extensive building work going on in the area so it is not quiet or a pleasant area to be in.
After one night we decided we wanted to leave.
The manager told us there where no buses or trains that day to Delhi and that we would have to stay another night......
And that we should go on his camel safari for 2500 each.... This then started dropping as soon as we said no.
We asked him to book a train for the next day. We then went for a walk round the fort (which stinks of rat wee by the way!! )
We then returned to find he had done nothing....
He then mentioned there was a newer hotel with a nice pool.
After 3 hours!!! We managed to get him to arrange for us to be taken there.
Do not stay here .
