“Lovely Views, excellent staff”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

We stayed at this hotel in late December 2013 while competing in the Rickshaw Run and loved it! The views from the rooftop restaurant were beautiful and the staff was very helpful. They have a rickshaw driver on staff who is known as "Dahdi" which means "beard" in Hindi. He was one of the kindest people we meet during our time in India.

Our room was small but comfortably fit the 3 of us, bathrooms were clean, and the breakfast and chai were delicious. I'd highly recommend staying here!!

We stayed at the Fifu guesthouse in November 2013. We really enjoyed the hotel and the kindness of M. Fifu. He speaks very well french. The staff was also very sympathetic. We ate in the restaurant of the gueshouse in the evening; the food was excellent and, moreover, we had a great view of the fort from there. Our room was nice, clean and comfortable. In one word: to recommend!

My friend and I truly enjoyed our stay in Hotel Fifu. Our room was beautiful and the bathroom was very clean and well appointed. I noticed that the toilet paper was of a much better quality than other hotels provide. Plenty of hot water, the mattresses and duvet were very clean and extremely comfortable.
The view from the terrace is absolutely divine and we spent hours just gazing at the fort as it changes colours through the day!!!! The rooftop restaurant is so cozy with comfortable couches that most people just come up with a book and relax!!
The staff are helpful and friendly. The owner is a true gentleman and goes out of his way to ensure that every guest is well looked after. Our trip to the dunes was well arranged and we were very safe and secure. Mr Fifu takes personal interest in the food served at the restaurant and when my friend asked for dishes with very little spice and oil, she got it just the way she wanted it. He makes all his guests feel special and I can see that most guests at his hotel feel that way.
The entrance and road leading to the hotel is not nice though. In fact , we were a bit horrified when we checked in as it looked small but we were pleasantly surprised by the well decorated rooms and the rooftop sitout. Most importantly;it was clean with mineral water in all the rooms.
I would definitely like to stay here again. Its so reasonable and food at the restaurant is lovely. We never felt like going anywhere else to dine!!!!!

Room Tip: The suite is lovely just ideal for three people if necessary.

I stayed at Hotel Fifu at the end of December 2013 with 2 friends. The hotel was cute, beautifully decorated and the staff very friendly and helpful. It was my friend's birthday and the hotel was able to arrange to get a cake brought in from a bakery. The restaurant has a wonderful view of the fort. We had a lovely stay. I would definitely stay there again!

For me this hotel has everything. The rooms are stylish and spotlessly clean, there is an excellent meeting place on the roof, which is also the restaurant serving excellent food and offering a panoramic view of the fort - a fine place to spend an evening.
The hotel's great strength is in Fifu, himself. He is avery knowledgeable man who appears to treat and train his capable staff very well, and shows a very caring attitude towards his guests.
We booked a camel safari from here, and it was very well organised, and a great memory of the place.
There is no need to be concerned about staying outside the town, as it is only a 10-15 minute walk to the fort gates, and there is always something going on in the street around the hotel - it is a relief to get away from the tourist pressures and view the fort from a distance anyway.
This is authentic hospitality and not just good corporate practice.

Sitting on the roof terrace in a warm afternoon breeze with the fort in the background, just before leaving to head back to Delhi. This is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. Really appreciate the design details, especially the huge window seats in the room and on the roof. great food and really helpful staff. Thanks guys. Just sorry India didn't make the final of the Asia cup! Better luck in the Twenty 20 World Cup. Cath and Suhith

Dear Cath and Suhit,

Namaste. Thank you very much for writing your feedback for our hotel.

A large window seat in each room is really practical as you can relax by watching Jaisalmer Fort. It was nice discussion with you about IPL and cricket in India.

We wish if you give us chance to serve you in the future.

Thank you once more for your kind visit,

Writing this as I enjoy the view of the fort from the restaurant of Hotel Fifu. Staying in room 104, lovely room, quiet with own living room. Very impress with the bathroom, modern with nice shower. Very friendly staffs and they look after very well. They serve vegetarian food, and I went YUCK LOL! but I did really enjoyed the food, very healthy & tasty.Owner Om himself will take good care of you who speaks fluent Spanish & French (Not sure if he speaks German & Italian) apart from English & local language.

Highly recommend staying here, forget 5 star while in Jaisalmer.

Room Tip: Staying in room 104, Loving it. Not sure about other rooms. They arrange other sightseeing activitie...
