When staying in Jaisalmer it is important to stay in the fort. Rickshaw drivers will try and take you to their friends places, just politely refuse. This hotel has everything. Good food, lovely rooms, hot water and wifi. The staff were amazing, helpful and speak good English. This place is embedded at the top of the fort walls, the view... More

Hotel Surja is an incredibly cheap hotel situated inside the fort on one of the walls. It is a unbelievable experience to have your breakfast from the top of the wall and imagine what the fort must have been like 400 years okay. Rooms are fairly large and quirkily decorated with plenty of hot water. There is a fireplace in... More

If I could give this hotel more than five stars I would. Our room had a beautiful balcony jutting out of the fort with great views over the city. The rooms are beautifully decorated and great value. We had very hot showers every day, which is unusual in budget Indian hotels. The roof terrace has great views over the city... More

Hotel Surja is what it is thanks to Raj who is very welcoming and friendly and his competant staff. The hotel is inside the fort putting it in a prime spot for sight seeing for walking in and around the myriad of small alley ways if the fort. It also has some of the best views from the relaxing rooftop... More

This was a good budget hotel. Good location, free train station pickup, and I booked a really lovely camel safari with them (non-touristy, and just what I was looking for). The only issue was that the bathroom was absolutely filthy - they need to scrub every surface down with bleach! Otherwise would recommend.

When I saw the view in photo and the website I was sure it would be good... it was more than this. The only one place who asked me if I wanted a pickup at the train station (even early in the morning), the really good panorama on the city, the well-decorated and fully functionnal rooms and the landlord who...

I stayed in Surja Hotel for 7 days in October 2014 and this was the most memorable experience of my life. The major credit goes to Raj Bissa who is the joint-manager of Surja Hotel. He not only showed me around cool places in Jaisalmer but also made sure I get the best service from everyone at the hotel! Probably... More
