Large, colorful rooms with a nice place to hangout out on the roof. We paid a good price for what we got, but we came in June (off season). The owners are super nice and accommodating. Wifi only available in some areas. I would stay here again for sure.

We stayed here in November 2012 - I can only go back to June 13 in the dropdown...- after being tricked into staying in Deep Mahal and booking their camel safari (do not go there!). We visited Jaisalmer as part of our worldtrip and came on a day when prices were high due to a festival. This is why we... More

I have always been wary of writing reviews, so I will just give it my best effort. I could begin by telling you that the guesthouse itself was picturesque, spacious, and open. That the rooms felt luxurious after having traveled through Rajasthan from budget hostels to overnight sleeper trains. That the view from the terrace felt timeless and that I... More

Located in a great location inside the fort, this great guest house offers lots of rooms for various prices, with lots of chilling spots. The rooms are big and comfy, super clean, and very nicely decorated, giving one a feel of a maharajah for a day. The staff is awesome, super friendly and knowledgeable, and are really willing to accommodate.... More

The rooms a really nice, with a fantastic view. They are decorated really nice with love to details. But I think they didn't do anything at the rooms since they build it. The rooms and blankets are not really clean so we used our own blankets. There are no mosquito nets in the room. At check in we asked if... More

It 's the place where I was better! The property is very well Rajasthan is expected to see ..... The rooms are quaint, it seems to go back in time, well maintained and clean, with a private bathroom with hot water. The staff is helpful, friendly and welcoming, especially the restaurant OTARO.

The service was absolutely perfect here. Until we refused to take the incredibly overpriced desert safari tour. After we chose not to pay the price of the commission of booking the trip with desert boys - we were given no hot water for the duration of our stay. And no one was interested in sorting this out. The place was... More
