We stayed at Surja Hotel for 2 nights and had a fantastic stay. The guesthouse itself is fantastic, built directly into the Fort Walls, with a good rooftop restaurant and charming rooms. Our room was beautiful with a great view and tons of character. It was also really clean and very quiet which is always a major bonus in India.
The staff was also especially wonderful. We didn't book our Camel Safari with them (we had received a recommendation from some friends and had already booked with them) and they didn't pressure us to change to them at all. (Which we found out is very rare in Jaisalmer.) They also offered to store our stuff during the safari and gave us a room for a couple hours when we got back so we could shower and rest before we had to get on the train. It was greatly appreciated!
As some other people mentioned the hot water was on and off but Raj was installing a new water heater when we were there so that should be fixed now. Also, be careful when you are looking for this place as there are a number of copy-cat places surrounding it with names like Surya or Surga.
Overall would highly recommend Surja!
