Monica Guesthouse & Safari
Ranked #50 of 163 Jaisalmer B&B and Inns
Reviewed 22 March 2014

Wonderful place. The management are among the friendliest people I've met in India, and are very helpful. Very cheap room in a cheerie and colorful house in the centre. The rooftop terrace, a cosy place with spectacular views, is a nice place to relax, even though I couldn't enjoy any food, because the cook was in the hospital. The hot water wasn't really hot, actually it was cold most of the time. Not really important in the desert, though. Highly recommended if your budget is low, and highly recommended if it's not.

Affordable, Comfortable and Peaceful place to stay with hot water facility, roof top dinning and friendly staff, esp this guy Faruq the hotel staff took good care of us.. If you are an adventurer and don't want to spend too much on your tour this is the best place :)

Room Tip: Must be a good Bargainer ;)

The hotel was beautiful and have very good staff. Each and every thing of the hotel is commendable and we enjoyed every bit of it. The food of the hotel is also very good. The indoor pool is very beautiful. We could not enjoy the swim as it was very cold and the hotel do not have heated pool. Every night the hotel offers rajasthani cultural programme which includes folk dances and songs. It was also a good experience. The hotel has unique way of welcoming the guest. An escort vehicle with flags escorts your vehicle from the city and once you are in the hotel, sopund of nagada welcomes you. After tilak you are showered with rose petals from the top of the burj. It gives your royal experinece
All in al a good experience.

This February me & my 7 friends planned for a Desert Safari in Jaiselmer. Thanks to Monica Guest house & Safari for making the trip memorable for us. They gave us transportation to & fro between Jaisalmer Train Station to their hotel that too in the middle of the night. Their hotel was clean & is close to a Temple which you can go for a stroll in the early morning to view the magnificent city. Mr. Faruk Khan is a gentleman who guided us & was very kind & humble. Other staffs were also very friendly. They arranged for Desert Safari which was extremely good. The camel riding, sunset & sunrise view, Jeep safari & the ethnic program captured our mind & soul. The food too was tasty.. Lastly we were humbled when they provided complimentary tea to us 3 times.. Really guys thank you for making this trip easy & fun.

Room Tip: All the rooms are same.

We met faruk who offered us a cheap room at his place. The rooms are good for the price and the value for money is far better than most of the guesthouses around. The atmosphere was nice. The only negative thing I would say is that the safari is not as "off the beaten track as suggested". The location of the safari is just next to all the other tourists and you can hear tourists at the large tourist camp nearby singing and drumming at night as well as hearing cars from the nearby road in the morning. We still enjoyed the safari but if you want "off the beaten track" choose a different one.

Dear Jojobhill,

Thank you very much for your review. Your opinion is very important to us an let us develop our service. We are sorry that our safari was not as you imagined. February is a top touristic month for Jaisalmer and due to very high number of tourists it is very difficult to ensure complete silence during safari and especially at night. I want ensure you that our safari is really "off the beaten track" and in any other moment of year you would not meet and hear any tourist and sounds on desert.

Best regards
