Brilliant location. Rooms are beautifully decorated and views are amazing. Staff were helpful and polite. Some noise during night from outside the fort but nothing to worry about. Was unsure about breakfast to begin with as staff just asked what do you want but was taken aback with the platter of goodies they brought us. fresh fruit, omlete, pancakes, toast,... More

From the second we walked through the door we felt at home. All the staff were incredibly welcoming, and really helpful. Our room was absolutely gorgeous, and had an amazing view of the city. Having only planned on staying one night, we ended up staying 3, it was just too beautiful to leave. It was my birthday during our stay,... More

I cannot rave enough about this beautiful hotel. From the moment you walk through the door it's like you're coming home to family. The staff cannot do enough for you, all very friendly and accommodating to anything you need. The decor is fantastic, still so true to traditional India styles- it makes you feel like old India royalty! The rooftop... More

If you want to stay on the fort, the magnificient Sonar Killa, Garh Jaisal is probably your BEST BET. Beautiful, rooms, lovely decor (I fell in love with all the beautiful breadspreads they had, one better than the other), awesome view from the rooms and the best being the hotel's terrace with a breathtaking view of the city below the...

I'm a frequent visitor to Jaisalmer, this being my 7th trip. This was our first stay at Garh Jaisal. Our entire group was highly impressed with the hotel. Clean rooms, as spacious as they can be for a property inside the fort. Food was excellent. Great breakfast. Unlimited beverages. And best of all, an unbeatable view. Breakfast on the terrace...

This hotel is situated inside the fort. Small but rich in traditional decor and a very comfortable hotel with excellent warm and courteous staff. They took care of everything including taking our luggage out to the car which was parked outside the fort. The terrace eating area has an excellent view of the city and a part of the fort.... More

My husband stayed at this hotel 2 years ago and he strongly recommended this hotel, so we stayed here. The hotel is situated on the top of the Jaisalmer Fort and you can view all over Jaisalmer from the roof. I got speechless when I first stood there. What else you can ask for??? Beer or Coffee, anything can be... More

Hotel is in an incredible location & roof terrace even better than on website. The .place has a lovely atmosphere thanks to Turon & his staff. Rooms are beautiful with window seats you can lie in & gaze out at the view. Breakfast is fantastic.

After seven years I decided to come back to Jaisalmer and stay once again at the Garh Jaisal. I dreamt of this hotel for all these years as it is in a fabulous location on the fort with breathtaking panoramic views over the city. We stayed, again, in the Red Maharani room, that has a very beautiful red decor and... More

Our room at this former haveli (ie, rich merchant's house) was a great surprise - all silk brocades, old pictures, intricately carved furniture - but with good plumbing and a very comfy bed. The entire hotel is a delight; bursting with characterful nooks and crannies with cosy built-in seats, lots of wall hangings and antiques, and a fabulous roof terrace... More
