We were in Jaisalmer for only few hours in November. We stopped here because outside a wonderful building there was a nice guy with some books on a shelf behind him. I stopped, staring at the books, all in different languages. He smiled and said: it's a book sharing service, you can leave a book here if you want. I... More

We were able to check in to our room, which was a relieved as we were still very... More

We loved our stay at hotel suraj, sure there's things that could be improved and it is basic but is a slice of history your staying in and the architecture won't let you forget that. A lick of paint here and there and something on the floor in the bathroom ( rubber bath Matt's would do it ) but need... More

We arrived quite late at night and had to wait a while outside the fort walls for an auto-rickshaw sent by the hotel. When we got to our room there was no toilet paper, no sheet on the bed, and the bed was placed in the room so you had to climb up to another area and then climb down... More

You can get better facilities for the same price and you can get the same facilities for less. In terms of value for money this hotel does not rank highly. BUT that is not why people stay here. This place is all about atmosphere. It is about sleeping in a 500 year old haveli in the middle of a living... More

Yes the room is a bit faded and a bit in need of a restoration job but it was amazing and probably the most atmospheric of our trip. It is a 500 year old family home right inside the fort next to the Jain Temples. The staff were really helpful and helped me find a lost phone. For an authentic... More

Found Hotel Suraj by lucky coincidence and what a wonderful surprise..the architecture is like an organic part of the fort and must be ancient..but perfectly maintained...the rooms have each a unique character and most of them have a view...my small room had a little balcony with a cosy rock hewn couch and thick matrass to chill out and enjoy ...the...

I had a great experience here - I arrived just after dawn, and Raj was kind enough to let me into my room, several hours in advance of standard check-in time, for a much-needed nap. The room was clean and inviting, and the whole hostel is well-maintained and secure. The rooftop lounge is absolutely stunning; the food is great, priced... More
