Definitely one of my top few places i stayed in India during my 3 and a half month trip. Fortunately for myself, i went in the low season, so booking was not a problem, although most of the kitchen staff and others were away. However, the owners were very friendly, very helpful, and sat with us in the evenings to... More

Very comfortable room (although the smell wafting in from outside left a little to be desired). The rooftop restaurant was great - excellent views, very comfortable and good food. Service was pleasant and efficient. Power was interrupted at times - not a problem specifically associated with the hotel. It's loctation was great - close enough to the main attractions but...

As soon as i got to Jaisalmer, Papu was in his jeep waiting for me, we sped to the Palace and i was allowed to rest before sorting any requirements. The location is amazing, the food great and the hospitality unmatched. The staff and owners had me eating with them, inviting me out and catering to my needs beyond the... More

this is a great little hotel, just outside the fort walls. compared to what you can get in Delhi for equivelant price, there is no comparison! Rooms are ultra clean and have character, there is a decent roof restaurant and prices are decent. They do their own camel safari which is off the beaten track. The best bit, though, is... More

Jaisalmer was one of our favourite stops during our 8 weeks in India and the Shahi Palace one of our most favourite hotels/hostels. The hotel is built in traditional sandstone with a small and friendly atmosphere, which makes you feel both safe and at home. They offer free pick up from the train station. We had booked one of the... More

The Shahi Palace is a great choice to make when looking for a place to stay in Jaisalmer. It is a family business with 3 brothers owning and running this hotel, another nearby and with plans for a larger up-market hotel moving towards fruition. As young entrepreneurs they deserve every success. Nothing seems like too much trouble for them, your... More
