“Good Property with Inadequate Facilities”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2013

A 48 rooms Fort lookalike Hotel built in a remote deserted area, approximately 5-6 Kms from Jaisalmer Railway Station with Jaisalmer yellow stone. Some lawns and landscaping, potted plants around it were not maintained and neglected at this point of time.

The Hotel claims to have a multi-cuisine restaurant with 64 covers and lots of services advertised in the lobby display board which do not work.

The rooms are spacious with reasonably good decor. TV, the quality of reception and choice of channels in the guest room is JOKE.

The artwork in public areas and and small stone carved Buddha Statue on writing desk in the room fits the environments and do attract your attention.

The scanty two or three staff in the property are raw and totally lack basic knowledge of Hospitality.F&B service, Food quality, taste and exorbitant rates are far from even average Dhaba's around the city.

The swimming pool was filthy, full of algae and was not useable.

Transportation availability at Hotel is a big issue and can not be banked upon. The Autos and car hire charges are exorbitant and the Front office staff do not come forward to assist you except calling them and remaining aloof after that.

Wi Fi facility promised was not provided since was not working during the stay.

The room I stayed was horribly Hot since was on third floor and Air conditioner capacity seems inadequate to cope with the heat load.

Though plumbing fittings in the Bathroom were of reasonably good quality, layout of the bathroom however is poorly designed. HK services were sadly pathetic in this area particularly. The shower and health faucet at the wc were both clogged.

Except negotiated room rate, anything you ask for is horribly expensive and not reliable. I really do not know if I was here in the wrong season or it would be worst when the season sets in.

Last but not the least, do not expect availability of the Hotel staff including Front office and reception in the silent hours to early morning since they are not around and may be in deep sleep resting in one of the guest rooms

Room Tip: With all my comments in review above, if you ever land in this property, make sure you have your arr...

Dear Sir

Thanks for taking time out to write your reviews.

Though as you realised, June is off time in Rajasthan with temperature hovering around 50 Degree C, staff and facilities are basic during this period, and we assure you that from Oct-March, full facilities are operating.

We are attending to all the areas you pointed out, and hope to see your comments in future as "Good Property with good Facilities"

With warm regards/Vijay Singh

Room - We stayed here for 2 nights. The room we got (301) was large and had a dome (it was on top floor). Room was good and clean and well-decorated. However,it needs a bit of maintenance. From the room we could see Jaisalmer fort.

Hotel - Hotel is large (about 40 rooms) and has a good facade. It has a swimming pool but it was closed for repairs which was a let down. We had not been informed about this while booking.

Food - Breakfast was standard. We also had dinner there once. The taste was ok but expensive.

Location - It is a bit away from the city so you should have your own car with you if you are staying here.

Overall, a nice hotel but nothing great. I was told big groups pefer to stay here.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms, esp 301 are better with a good view.

Beautiful new facade, with appealing room interiors. Small property, with limited staff and no amenities. Far from the town, contrary to what the staff promised on phone. Food was delicious, but expensive and lacked variety. Service was just about alright.
Overall, it was a comfortable stay but surely not worth the 4K/night price. Was worth half of that.

Not a nice place to live....old dirty towels/sheets, worst food..I was not given the room which I had booked,...only saving grace was Mr. Mahender Singh, who had a courtesy to apologize and admit for the mistake, and drop us for our next destination as a courtesy to make up for the wrong rooms given but rest of the staff was not upto the mark...I had evening tea with some snacks, dinner and breakfast in the hotel which was BAD (am a vegetarian).Hotel was far from the city,although I was able to get the auto while coming back from the fort...but still a secluded place..

Awful service and poor upkeep of rooms. Food is horrible and overpriced. Real worth of the hotel should be 1500 inr on the higher side. This place is next to Shilp gram and the noise of stone cutters is very annoying at night.
Simply avoid this place.

I stayed here for a day.
First things first... This is quite remotely located considering Jaisalmer a very tiny city. Even the Autowalas have no idea about the location of the hotel.
There is no transportation towards the hotel, so in case you are landing in Jaisaler early morning or leaving late night.. you must make sure that you have made arrangement for transportation.. hotel person will simply raise his hands saying "I can't help"
Rooms are spacious, but toilets are not up to the mark.
Staff is not at all bothered by your presence and they lack the basic information.
Food is also below mark.
Hotel has a swimming pool but is of no use as it was down for maintenance and i guess it would remain like this for most of the time.
In short it would be much better to choose a different hotel.

after a sleepless night at Nachna havelli we moved to this beautiful hotel which though a bit away from he city more than made up for the distance. tastefully decorated rooms, great staff and excellent service finally made me smile in jaisalmer. the food was very good and the staff extremely polite and helpful. a place i would surely visit again

Room Tip: one must roam around the hotel to see the art decor in the rooms.
