This is a fabulous hotel for people to experience the culture of Jaisalmer Havelis. The best time to visit i would say is Decemeber. The chillines in the weather was amazing . They gave us heaters in room to keep us warm. They didn't charge extra for that. It is so close to tourist points and very near to market..... More

Looks like a haveli, very well furnished. Beautiful peices of art everywhere. Food is ok. Top floors have a better view and inside decor. Beautiful place to stay for a royal experience. In case if you are not going in peak season please check the camps before booking. Had done bookings directly before going. We were the only guests in... More

Narayan Niwas is one of the older hotels of Jaisalmer. Beautifully structured building and spacious rooms. Old world charm in their service is what makes this an extra special place. The music in the evenings, particularly if you motivate the singer by encouraging him, is truly outstanding and out of this world. The view of the fort from the terrace... More

When we enter in the Hotel early morning.....it looks like "purani Haveli", In this era you might find this type of ancient hotel where you can see each and every things very preserved and maintained. In night there is also provison of Folk music arranged at dinner sight. Restaurent is also well maintained. It is best combination of Hospitality, Architecture... More

The moment I entered into Narayan Niwas, i forgot the fatigue of a 12 hour journey...What arrested my mind was the Classic Architecture & peace around it...Just felt as if i am in some other era...The courteous staff was more than happy to take me around the hotel & tell the historic importance of the place...i was not at all...

I have known this hotel for the past 18 years and have seen it changed. Finally after a lot of efforts they have improved the room standard somewhat and the whole unit looks OK. The problem is the staff....they do not have professional staff and when you sit down to take breakfast....one person is running up and down and getting... More

We booked 3 AC rooms and paid the premium these rooms carry. If you ever ask hotels like this one why they charge so much extra for AC rooms, they will tell you it is because of the additional electricity the AC units use. Makes sense. However, we stayed in the rooms for January 5th, 2014 when temperatures were a... More

The hotel looks great from the outside and the public areas are strongly aesthetic. However, my room (a renovated one) was noisy, the loo didn't flush and the hot water very unreliable (in the case of my room, non existent). The breakfast was pretty disgusting, with nuclear jam and no decent coffee. My stay wasn't helped by the fact that... More

The location of the hotel is no doubt the best. But I totally disagree with their statement of "flagship of hospitality". We took four deluxe rooms. As per the manager these deluxe rooms were newly built. But even these rooms have many a problems. One, they have moist walls (probably due to some internal leakage in the bathrooms). Two, some...

I stayed in Double Deluxe room. Compared to cost, there are very average facilities in room. Lousy room, old and average furniture, no TV, Hot water wasn't available for me when required. Food is extremely costly, staff is very cold. Building is good and peaceful but rest all is pathetic. In all, it was bad experience.
