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

Our stay in Hotel Surja was just like a dream come true. As for Bengalis, 'Sonar Kella' (Golden Fort) is nostalgic due to Satyajit Ray's film. Our stay in the hotel gave us that taste. The jharoka of our room outlooked the eastern part of the city. Most remarkable was the sunrise from the bed itself. One can sit for... More

We had a pleasant stay in this hotel. Its location is superb, tucked away near the central square in the fort. Its rooftop view one of the best, overlooking the fort and the surrounding village. Its service helpful, as they helped us getting photocopies of our passports for acquiring train tickets to Mumbai, and bus tickets to Jodhpur. Its rooms... More

I wouldn't say it lightly but this is definitely the coolest hotel I have ever stayed in. Incredible old world feel with stunning views from the more "expensive" bedroom (well worth the higher price). If you're not lucky enough to get this room then the views from the terrace on top are just as good. You could sit on the... More
