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

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
