“Nice and friendly staff who always try to help”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

They have very nice staff and offer clean room for all the guest. Nice restaurant at the roof top, you can enjoy amazing view when you have your meals. Their attitude makes you feel like stay at home. When we suffered difficulties, they always tried to help. Arrange a room for my sick mum after we checked out without charging us any money. really appreciated what they did for us, we will definitely go back and stay there if we go back to Jaisalmer, recommend it.

Room Tip: Room with balcony and the city view is really nice, really worth to experience like a princess view...

Good hotel for the best view and homely environment. Clean room with nice view. If anyone travelling to Jaisalmer for the first time i recommend you this hotel. Best thing about this hotel is its inside the fort and the view from rooftoop restaurant is amazing. Its a different experience to stay inside the fort, felt like i was during some kings period. Raj and his brother are very nice person and will help you with every possible way they can.

This place is clean, affordable, and has great views from the rooftop. Their camel safari was just fantastic with no sense of any corners having been cut. My friends who stayed elsewhere turned this into their home away from home. Raj was extremely helpful in every way possible; he even took me over to his barber.

Absolutely fantastic room on a fort! emaculately clean, well preserved, efficient staff, perfect food, great wall decor and each room has a private balcony or a window gave a good view of golden city, they have 2 pc with internet free use by the guest, this is convenient for those who didn't have any device to use wifi. The manager Mr Yogi is very helpful and funny , its quite cheerful to having cup of chai on the rooftop with great view of desert town. Camel safari from this guesthouse is really recommended, they are very responsible, provide clean water, nice food and take me to non touristic sand dune.

I googled some best hotels in jaisalmer with good ambience/views and stumbled on Hotel surja. The hotel gave a special ecstasy to my jaisalmer visit. The camel safari took from hotel is also worth it and I took non touristic sand dunes trip as I liked it. Secondly the hospitality was very good and had everything/information whatever I wanted. About food I would rate it as average as, you can savor local food in small shops. I would highly recommend spending a night atleast in Surja to complete your jaisalmer visit.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms with city view if you are an ambience lover. Prefer village/interior fort life view...
