“Good hotel to stay in Jaisalmer”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011

I stayed here along with my wife in Aug-11. The biggest USP of this hotel is it's location which offsets the other drawbacks of this hotel. The hotel is made just outside the small city of Jaisalmer and give the very nice view of the Jaisalmer fort. Fortunately it rained in Jaisalmer when I visited so I could enjoy the cool breeze of the thar desert along the pool side which was biggest fun for us. The idea of the Bhurj Tower room is very good but the area of the room is very small and toilets are very small & congested. Food is very very expensive in this hotel ...I don't why it was exorbitantly high ...the food taste was also not that great. You must try this hotel when u visit Jaisalmer next time but be prepared to spend little extra on food :)

It was a great experience. Jaisalmer is a very small city so allhotels are nearby only except hotel surajgarh.
Hotel himmatgarh is a well maintained property and good place to stay. Nice clean swimming pool,courteous staff and good location with great view. Food was bad and very expensive.

A worth place to put off your shoes and relax under the desert breeze by the side of sparkling pool and simultaneously enjoying a wonderful view towards the downslope of Ramgarh Road and yellow sandstone marvel - Jaisalmer Fort.

P.S: As for food, please go to fort area to have a better options!

Great experience in the Hotel. Great location and views from the Hotel. Lot many people had commented on the food quality of the Hotel, but it depends on the individuals own taste. I did not find food bad, on the other hand it was pure and tasty. They had their own cattle's for Milk and milk products, which guarantee's the quality of food in their hotel. This Hotel is located on one of the finest location in Jaisalmer. I have seen that tourists from other Hotels also bring their guests for sunset viewing. Simple and quiet ambience. Lot of open ground for children. My children enjoyed their stay. We stayed for 4 days and it was felt like home. Good staff. In the evenings, Hotel used to organize Rajasthani music events and what a treat to listen to them, I cannot describe in words, You have to experience it on your own.

Hotel is beautiful to look at, and sitting by the pool overlooking Jaisalmer was amazing.
The staff however are cold, very unhelpful, will do anything they can to make more commission, and will expect to be tipped at every occasion.
We had already organised a hired tour through them, which they made a good profit on the Rs2000 we paid for the day. When our tour guide offered us another half a day at half the cost we jumped on the chance to see more of the area. Once the staff at the hotel found out they started their continious ringing to the guide to find out what he was doing and why he hadn't contacted the hotel before taking us out, as they wanted the commission for our trip.
We met so many people on our trip that went above and beyond what you can expect, and it brought into sharp contrast the service we recieved in our hotel. Do not stay here!

Rather than back packing I went holdall packing! Of all the towns and cities that I passed through, Jaisalmer was indeed the highlite of all my stays. The Hotel Himmatgarh Palace is/was far more than I ever expected; quite a different and wonderful hotel to stay for a week. It's only a short walk into town, then book a safari tour in the Tar desert and then an adventure in the massive Fort. In the evening there are two or three very good sites to eat. A good centre point of town to people watch and drink, Bhang Lassi a yoghurt - based drink made from buttermilk, of different flavours and sometime a little bit extra added to it... Go for it and have a wonder experience of Rajasthan. Bob

The location of hotel is very nice with direct view of Sonar Quilla. We choose the option of rooms which are like independent houses shaped like igloo which was quiet diferent experience. It also has swimming pool for children and a small lawn. For food, choice is limited. One must check if the AC is working properly before settling down.
