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

In January 2014 the whole hotel (except for our 3 rooms) was booked for a marriage party. It seems that all the staff was busy with the party and didn't care about the other guests (us). The rooms are large but dated. Every bathroom has a sticker, asking to preserve the scares resources in this desert area (water). But when... More

This hotel has a great deal of potential but unfortunately slips on a number of categories. The rooms are extremely dated, there is no/very little hot water, the rooms are freezing (we were there in the winter) and have no options for heating (although i did manage to procure a very small and ineffective heater from the manager), the bathrooms...

Excellent place, great room service and decent food. Quite happy with my stay, would recommend it. Staff was very accommodating and swift. The swimming pool is beautifuul, the entire property is like a dream. The rooms were huge and clean. I woke up one day to find horses roaming around! Hoping to come back to Jaisalmer and stay in this... More

Clean room lovers do not book jawahar niwas palace. Lack of enough and professional staff. This hotel is belongs to king but not star category hotel. It's like guest house. There are much better hotels with less tariff. In this tariff you got luxury hotel in jaisalmer.

Have stayed in this hotel while travelling with a friend. It is a nice heritage hotel, the rooms are huge in size. The compound is having horses roaming around. They have a fantastic swimming pool. As my friends wanted to have traditional Rajasthani food, hence ordered for Laal Maas, Kair Sangri and Dal Tadka. I must say that all three... More
