From the very beginning when we made reservations, to the end as we checked out of the hotel, our stay was managed with personal attention and professionalism that can be hard to find in India. If you want to have confidence in your hotel, stay here: Om and Jitu will make sure your visit in Jaisalmer is what you want!
The hotel is outside the the fort: this means you can sit on terrace and enjoy the view of it.
Hotel is in a quiet location very close to train station and rickshaws are easy quick ride into old part of town. (March 2012: Rs. 50-70 with 3 people per rickshaw.) Hotel will call rickshaw for you. And in town every driver knew the Hotel.
The rooms are a good size, some with a sitting room as well. They are colorful and nicely done. The baths are basic but super clean. Beds are comfortable. AC runs nicely and fans in every room.
There's free wifi throughout the property.
They serve breakfast lunch & dinner on a gorgeous comfortable terrace atop the hotel. The food is tasty and all the utensils, glasses, plates etc were super clean. Biggest danger is that you might just want to sit on the terrace all day and not go see the city.
They also arrange desert safaris. We decided to go to the dunes without a camel ride. We saw 4 or 5 very interesting sites outside the city in their jeep and then they cooked a magnificent meal for us as the sun went down over the sand dunes. The cost was right at the middle of the other similar tours we had checked-out before arriving. We left at 3:00pm and returned about 10:00pm. It was one of the highlights of a 7-day Rajasthan trip.
Will we stay here again? I can't even imagine why I would want to stay anywhere else! If I return to Jaisalmer Hotel Fifu will be my "home".
