Great! I walked in around 8 p.m. Got a cozy room with small but clean bathroom. Guitars hanging on the walls and the most friendly hosts ever. Really helpful for everything you need and the service is excellent. Nice fresh cooked food and the service for the camelsafari was great! The guides from artist hotel are the best. Humor, cooking...

The hotel is close to the centre and lovely! The two brothers running the hotel are maybe the friendliest people I met in India. A home away from home! Ask for Apfelstrudel, a special cake from Austria, also the Indian kitchen is fantastic!

Two kind brothers are running their s small hotel. I stayed in a beauty room with bathroom for 200 rupies. From the rooftop you have a great view of the fort. The food is good and freshly prepared. During the night there are often musicians playing traditional desert music. Good feeling and good solution for backpackers. Walking It's 10 minutes... More

I stayed two nights in the Artist Hotel and I was pleasantly suprised of the service and the rooms for such a cheap price. I payed 300 rp for a single room and it was very clean and cosy. The staff helped me book a 3 day desert safari without a hassle. On my second day I asked the receptionist... More

Nice place. We rent a room for 500 rupies. Really little but confortable. The bathroom was quite bad and there was not hot water at all also if the stuff promised us for three days. The water machine is really noisy and it's impossible to sleep when they switch it on ( morning 8 o'clock) but once complained they immediatley... More

We booked a room for 500 inr. This had the door opening outside the house and had a small bathroom In fact, the pipe for the commode was broken and we immediately asked them t change the room. They were courteous enough to give us a better room. However, this bigger room also had a bathroom where you hardly fit.... More

This place is amazing, the staff is very friendly. Since the place is not to big, you can pass your time hearing the great desert histories with the staff. The place is localized in a musicians colony, for this reason, every night a musician plays in the hotel. The food is delicious and you need to drink the mango lassi,... More

wonderful place to spend some relaxing days; rooms are very comfortable, clean and furnished in very good taste. On the rooftop, with amazing Jaisalmer Fort view, there is the excellent restaurant with indian dishes and some european specialties (the owner's partner is Austrian); every night, with the sunset lighted fort setting, you can listen to indian music live concerts organized...

We woke up in the middle of nowhere amongst peacocks and cows as our overnight bus from Jaipur broke down. (Don't do this journey! Always get the train!) After negotiating our way from the desert to jaisalmer with no other English-speakers around we were exhausted, sweaty and unbelievably thirsty when we arrived at Artist Hotel, yet still on hyper-stress mode....

Fun and nicely decorated hotel. Every night there are musicians playing in the rooftop restaurant (they will ask you for tips before you retire to your room). They go on until midnight, so if you're tired and wanna sleep early, forget it. The music is very loud. In the mornings we heard a lot of noise from the restaurant as... More
