“Live like inside fort”
Reviewed 24 March 2014 via mobile

The hotel itself is located in the fort of jaisalmer which gives a great feeling of staying in the fort. The hotel is a small hotel with just couple of rooms. This gives an added advantage of personal service to all the guests which we highly appreciate. The place is beautiful and well kept.

Nice place, peaceful and clean, inside the Fort superb terrace and rooms. Second time I am going to Jaisalmer and stay at Victoria Hotel, just because people are friendly and helpful, and also because it is good quality/price. Thank you again!

We loved our stay in this small ,very friendly hotel, ideally located in Jaisalmer's old town, We had a beautiful room, Staff could not have been more friendly. We had two delicious meals sitting up on the roof overlooking this wonderful city. A perfect spot for going off into the winding old streets.The manager was absolutely charming and very hepful.

Pankaj was a perfect host and the hotel was comfortable and unique.
Pros: free WiFi and breakfast - banana pancakes! Pankaj was really chill and helpful. Sharing the best places to go see and do. Yes had a camel safari, and wasn't pushy about it when we said no thanks. The hotel felt like home, something about being on top of everything, great view from the roof top to watch sunrise and enjoy breakfast, comfortable beds, nice AC, plenty of free bottled water.
Cons: little tough for those tall people who are not mindful walking through small door frames! Not necessarily a con, but you do get the sounds of fort life, from morning prayer to dogs barking.
I would definitely recommend those who want a cool fort experience, who wants to stay in comfort at a fair price.

Wow, right at the top of the fort, stunning views from the rooftop restaurant/lounge. I spent a lot of time just hanging out on the roof, admiring the views and chilling out.

The owner, Mr. P. is really nice and welcoming. He came up with the idea to convert his family's home into this little cozy hotel and he's very passionate about the house and his customers. He spends a lot of time chatting with everyone and keeping us happy. He even went out and bought me a box of local candy when he saw how much i liked them!

The rooms, although ancient, have a modern bathroom, hot water, and very clean.

We had a fantastic stay at the Victoria. Pankaj is a very caring hotelier who has a real interest in his guests and has created a very quirky, homely hotel. The rooms, food and ambience were all great, especially the banana and honey pancakes for breakfast on the roof. The views across the town were brilliant and it was a great advantage staying within the historic fort.
Don't come here if you expect a Radisson, it is much more interesting than that. Do come here if you are looking for a beautifully restored historic house, with interesting furnishings, nice fellow guests and a fabulous base for exploring Jaisalmer.

We stayed here for 2 nights. We were in room 2, which has a small balcony looking outside the fort. It was spacious and clean, with a small but perfectly adequate shower room. Upstairs there is a nice terrace with great views and comfortable seating.

On arrival from the overnight train from Delhi we received a great welcome from the owner, along with a tasty complimentary breakfast of banana pancakes. All the staff were ready to help at any time looked after us very well.

Overall, a really great experience and wouldn't hesitate in recommending.
