The Hotel Fifu is a great place to stay when you are in Jaisalmer. The rooms are very clean, cosy and individually decorated. The rooftop restaurant is great for relaxing, the staff is friendly and helpful. The Indian food was not the best I had during my trip; it was decent though. The Pizzas (for the homesick) are great and the Banana Lassi is awesome.
The hotel is a little out of town, but therefore it is very quiet at night.
What I liked in particular was the personal service provided. The hotel manager, Fifu, is a great host; he personally tried his very best to make our stay as comfortable as possible.
Even though the camel safari was slightly more expensive then elsewhere, it was worth it. Everything was well organized. The only downturn was that the desert camp is situated not too far from a road; therefore in the early evening the sound of some trucks/jeeps were interrupting the otherwise magical ambience when sleeping under the stars. But overall this was a minor issue.
Can only highly recommend this place!
