Best view, decent room with a reasonable price. The best thing about this hotel was kindness. When one of my friend had a problem suddenly at night, they kindly took him to hospital to help us and waited like 3 hours.

At first, I didn't know that there are hotels inside the fort. I stayed the hotel which is located in the outside of the fort for three nights. Now I regret though. :( I should have stayed here from the very first day!!When I saw the rooftop of this hotel, I felt mesmerized. :)))The view was really beautiful. It was... More

Hotel Surja is almost perfect. It's in a great location on the Fort wall overlooking the city. There is a huge rooftop where you can enjoy the wifi, the views and amazing food from the menu, at the most reasonable prices. The rooms downstairs are simple, but clean and quiet. No five star luxury, but great value for money. One... More

Yes, it's old... but that's the point of coming here - it's the oldest still-inhabited fort in the world with mega charm to match! The hotel is embedded in the Fort's wall with the restaurant situated on top of the wall - you can't get more authentic than that... Improvements and adjustments to this old world charm to also offer... More

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
