“Excellent value for money”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

This is a small hotel located inside the fort. For a first time visitor to Jaisalmer it is a little tricky to find, but local people are quite friendly and seem quite happy to assist with directions. Alternatively you can always get a rickshaw to take you, but walking is easy enough.

Prepaid about 1600 INR equivalent on Agoda which included a basic breakfast. Room was small with a window looking out on the street below the fort. Separate toilet and small bathroom. Hot water wasn't working but with outside temperatures at 40 degrees this really wasn't an issue (although clearly it could be in Jan or Feb!). Free wifi but with intermittent reliability. Great view from the rooftop, but no option for dinner in the hotel. Aircon in the room was excellent and the foam bed was reasonably comfortable.

Room was quite clean. 2 litres of water provided without extrqa cost. Toothbrushes also provided.

Staff didn't speak much English but were friendly and didn't try and sell anything additional.

Overall very good value and I would certainly recommend at this price point.

We had a fabulous stay at Hotel Victoria. The view is great, the host accommodating, and the food delicious. Pankaj and his staff took very good care of us - some of the best customer service we have encountered in India. We have no hesitations in highly recommending Hotel Victoria.

We stayed in Victoria Hotel for one night before our camel safari the next day and night in Jaisalmer. We were greeted by very friendly staff and the owner upgraded us to a room with a beautiful view! The room was huge and very clean, the rooftop restaurant offered amazing views of the city of Jaisalmer. This hotel is located inside the fort which is amazing to see traditional people live and work inside the fort walls. The owner also let us keep our bags in a spare room while we were on the camel safari and even let us shower and freshen up the next day! All in all it was a wonderful stay with wonderful staff.

Highly recommended you try the chocolate banana pancakes! AMAZING!

My words are not strong enough to describe how wonderfull this place is. The rooms are well equiped and the view... the sunset on the desert, bring the golden color to the city. We enjoyed the food in the restaurant, especially the breakfast (delicious pancakes) and, Pankaj is a very interesting character, very approachable, talkative and when he says that nothing is impossible, it's true ! The members of the team are all adorable. It has been a very smooth and soft experience. I am dreaming of going back...

The manager has had the place running by him and his forefathers for generations and he went head over heels to make sure we were catered for. We even have him some sunglasses and he fixed them bless him. Do stay here for a brilliant location in the fort and for a good view of the town too. Also you can get the jeep tour organised from the hotel too. It was a one stop shop for us we did enjoy going out to eat though.

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Victoria for 3 days 2 nights... The hospitality was very impressive. Special mention for Pankaj ji n his team for the great Effort they are putting in. Breakfast was good.. Esp the daal pakaan n kachori Pankaj ji arranged. Unlimited masaala chai made our day..

My husband was not feeling well... Staff took very good care. I would recommend this hotel to anyone but may be tough for elderly.Room 2 has a wonderful sit out balcony but the bathroom is too small for a room of that category. Over all a great stay. Will surely stay at this hotel again!!!

Staying at 'Hotel Victoria' was a unique and memorable experience. The best thing about the hotel is the location, which is inside the fort. The terrace of the hotel provides a beautiful view of the city. The personalized and excellent hospitality offered by Mr. Pankaj Purohit (the hotel owner) and his staff has ensured that I would choose 'Hotel Victoria' during my next visit to Jaisalmer.
