“Pool is the biggest plus”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

Not so great rooms. Toilet was okay. neat and clean. But the pool is a big plus. Small but very Clean. We didn't use other services from this hotel. But the staff seemed very friendly and ready to help.

TV was an old styled one with a poor cable connection. AC too was old, but functional. Biggest minus is that there is no power back - up at all. We tossed in our bed for hours, without a Fan in a hot summer night.

So a 950/night during off season seemed very high to me. stayed on 17th april 2014

Either bargain for a better price or look for nearby hotels. Lot of options available in the vicinity.

Room Tip: Ask if they have installed back up power facility.

If you are on a budget this is a great place. Its only 5 minutes walk to the fort, close to the railway station and the service is very good. It has a small pool which is great to retreat to in the hot afternoon. The staff there arranged a wonderful Camel Safari for us at a really good price, then they let us use their pool to cool down afterwards. The roof top restaurant is nothing special, the rooms are small and need a new layer of paint, but most importantly for us the service, the price and the location was perfect.

Hi. We, a group of 6 friends, have taken a desert safari package from the hotel. Everything in the package was good, especially the camel safari. The camp tent where we stayed was also nice. Hospitality of the people during the package was nice. The hotel provided the package for 3 day and 2 night at a very good Budget. Open desert stay was owe-some. Food during the camp night stay and camel safari was traditional and good.

Food in the hotel restaurant in not so good for vegetarians.

So if planning to visit Jaisalmer and hiring this hotel is a good option just don't take food in the hotel.

The Hotel Golden City offers great value for money (especially considering the swimming pool); and for me the location is perfect, being tucked away in a peaceful side street but also within comfortable walking distance of everything that you could need in Jaisalmer. The staff are always friendly and helpful, and I find that the general atmosphere in the hotel is very family-oriented and homelike, which is important to me. The food is also very tasty - thanks to you, Sibu!

We stayed one night in the hotel and made a 3 days 2 nights camel safari in the Thar desert. The staff is very kind and welcoming, there is a nice swimming pool and the rooms are big is a bit dirty for European standards but still good value for money. The camel safari was great, the guide spoke good English and cooked delicious food. The camels were very friendly and the nights under the shooting stars unforgettable. Thanks for a lovely stay in Jaisalmer

I have booked this hotel through internet via IRCTC. We reached the hotel at the dawn and they were humble to pick us up with their scorpio. In fact they have another hotel beside this hotel and they offered us two big rooms there to freshen up with hot showers and morning tea although we had the booking from 10:00 am onwards. They offered this at free of cost. Finally they gave our allotted rooms at this hotel, both with a fort-facing balcony. We took their desert camp safari, although after some bargain and kept those rooms as we earlier paid for those. Their arrangement was nice and cordial and they offered some sight-seeing at return from SAM. They have nice roof-top restaurant and the food quality is good. They also have a swimming pool but as it was a winter time, no one tried it. On the last day I went to Tanot border after check-out with a vehicle hired from outside stand ( a Tata Spacio driven by Mr. Hatti Singh, a very nice young man) and they kept our luggage in their cloak room gladly. I am pleased with the facilities offered. The hotel bears value for money.
