A basic hotel, but clean, inexpensive, friendly and superbly located inside the fort. Our room had a balcony, a bit like a jharokha, which we thoroughly enjoyed sitting in and reading a book, looking out over he city below. The hotel also organised a camel safari overnight, which was fun. The room is very well-priced, they'll serve you beer on... More

We spend 5 nights at Surja Hotel in a room with a AC and an awesome balcony with just a perfect view from de fort to Jaisalmer. The room was very clean, the price was excellent and the staff are very kind, nothing but to thanks to Yogui and Raj. Sergio & Maria from Bolivia

Surja ticks every box. Rooms are beautifully decorated and clean with stunning views. Communal areas also. And owner Raj is a complete legend. We were ill and he went out of his way to check in on us, meet our every need and get us better again so that we could enjoy his magical Rajasthan. Look no further.

I love Surja! I stayed in one of the pricier rooms, but the price was well worth it for the very comfortable bed, the gorgeous decor, the functioning AC (it was 42 degrees!) and the super neat balcony. I had friends staying in one of the cheap 500 rupee rooms and it was very nice too, great value for money.... More

We'd been recommended this place by a couple we met in Jaipur. It's situated within the Fort, kind of built into the ramparts. It's quite cool walking up into the foot, through the winding streets and checking into a room that looks out of the fort and over the town. However to save money get a room that looks inward...

Stayed here for just one night and we're so grateful for the nice room, the great view and the good food served up on the rooftop cafe. We paid about £25 for the Maharaja room (superior or whatever the website calls it) to get air con and the view (what a view!) and it was totally worth it. Four poster... More

What a find! In the fort wall overlooking the city, it's amazing. The roof terrace is lovely and could sit their all day enjoying the view, even has plugs outside to use which was very handy! The room was nice, very hot water, and reasonable priced. The owner was lovely helpful. We also booked our camel safari through here and... More

Best place ever. Everyone so friendly and great atmosphere created by raj the owner. Food is average but it's made up for by incredible rooms with amazing views of the whole city from within the fort. They were very accommodating with us when we checked out and then hated Dylan's cafe so much that we re checked In

If you're still lingering from your budget stays in Jodhpur, Jaipur, or even Udaipur - shed it first thing because you aren't going to find at that level in Jaisalmer for bargain prices. Jaisalmer Fort, unlike its compatriots in rest of the state, has been taken over by the common citizens. It is home to a lot of hotels, restaurants,... More

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.
