The palace looks beautiful from the outside - which is evident of its magnificence in the past! But the rooms are not maintained. The AC remote doesn't work, the TV is of no use, dirty bed-sheets. The food was not up to the mark. I enjoyed the stay as it was a trip with friends, otherwise I would never have... More

Despite many bad reviews on tripadvisor, we chose to stay at this property for many reasons- location,heritage, lots of open area and great value. We decided to check out the property ourselves and found that location of property is excellent - close to the city in quiet part- fort is just 5 minute drive!! Most resorts in jaiselmer had similar... More

This hotel is stunning, although it needs a bit of tlc to reach its potential. A bit far out of town which is frustrating when the hotel staff kept ordering the same tuc tuc driver who repeatedly over charged. Other than that staff were attentive and helpful if a little slow. Sunset from the roof is stunning. An interesting place... More

This property belonged to the Maharajas of Jaisalmer , the Royal Guest House. First President and Prime Minister of India have stayed here. This must have been good at that point of time because the furniture , decoration , the building are good. But now, this palace is not good for stay , staff is helpful but they too can't... More

Hotel is magnificent, its a heritage property but as soon as you enter its clearly visible there is no maintenance and really in need of renovation. First morning we didn't have water in bathroom however that was resolved after 1-2 hour but they didn't have hot water which was also resolved upon starting of boiler and took some more time...

We stayed here in December for 3 nights while taking part in the Rickshaw Run. From the outside it looks very impressive, and it is a beautiful building, but it is very expensive compared to other properties and not especially close to the fort. For us it was about location as this was the start of the race, and for... More

We visited this hotel in december. First impression was very nice as the hotel looks like a palace from outside. But as they say, don't count on the first impression :) The hotel was virtually empty, and the rooms even though large were dated and not clean. Bathrooms were very dirty and bathtub in particular was very bad. On the... More
