The hotel is great, big rooms, very clean and at a great price. We had plans of doing the camel safari through a different company but we met some cool people so went along with them and in no way regretted it! Amazing fun, nice people. All up was a great place to stay with an awesome camel safari! Highly... More

The safari is everything that the owner tells you. No lies, no selling techniques. Awesome experience, but expensive 1800 for a short trip if you bargain. And 2100 for full two days trip. The owner is really pushy. He will wait and wait and wait right next to you chewing his paan, until you decide and pay. No escape possible... More

To Diane W, Our safari is a little more expensive than others, but this is because we offer a far less touristic safari at a further distance from the city compared to those offered by other companies. We are glad you enjoyed your desert experience! We are sorry that you felt pressured. This was far from our intention! We are... More

Stayed here for about a week and enjoyed my time here. The a high standard budget variety, pretty clean with a wobbly toilet seat and a great view (depends on the room though). The owner, Chandra was friendly and offered a free pick up from the train station (very helpful considering the number and intensity of touts there). The restaurant... More

Our bus arrived in the early morning in Jaisalmer. Still in the bus we were intercepted by Chandra who turned out to be the owner of the roop mahal. And he urged us not to take a hostel inside the ford. So we drove with him to the roop. Which proved to be the right decission. The rooms are clean... More

We booked to stay five days here but left after 1 hour. The whole place was in need of a good clean and was depressing. There were birds nesting in the reception area and in the lounge. If they made an effort to maintain reasonable standards it might have been OK but, as it was, we could'nt face 5 days... More

To Jot54, We are terribly sorry for your negative experience at our hotel. There are a lot of pigeons in the city, but we can comfortably say that they are not residing within our hotel. This must have been an exceptionally unfortunate time for you to have visited our hotel as we maintain a high standard of cleanliness and do... More

Our train arrived early, and our hotel sent Chandra (owner of Roop Mahal) to pick us up for free. On the ride, Chandra told us about his camel safari, and we were immediately interested. He is a very amicable guy. He took us to his hotel before dropping us off at our own hotel to give us more info and... More

The lovely Chandra picked us up at our bus stop early in the morning. He was a refreshingly kind and understanding gentleman in the swarm of commision rickshaw drivers who awaited us.

The owner, a very nice man, offered us free pickup from the station. The Hotel is not too far of the Fort entrance. Since it is outside the Fort itself, the water system is not endangering the Fort site. They have nice affordable clean rooms and a convenient rooftop. Food is ok but nothing special. In front of the hotel... More

We are long term travelers with basic needs - general level of cleanliness and enough space for our (minimal) stuff. This hotel is simple but completely clean and even the 400R room had plenty of space (even a small table and chair!) for us. The 400R rooms on the first floor don't have a window (500R room does) but that... More
