Yes, the name is strange, but don't worry. Manoj and Federika are creating a "fusion" of Indian and Mediterranean hospitality, and it really succeeds. Every member of the staff treats hotel guests as if they were family. They are extremely professional, courteous, and caring, and definitely go beyond the ordinary. We felt tremendously welcomed and cared for.

Location can't be beat: 1st Gate is literally at the foot of the Jaisalmer Fort. The building is newly renovated and spotless, and the towels and linens are new and fresh. The decor is pleasant, harmonious, and inventive-- more East/West fusion. The food at the rooftop restaurant (with a fantastic view of the Fort) is well prepared; there are western options but the menu hasn't been "westernized", which is a good thing.

Our room was spacious and very comfortable, with a big comfy bed. The window seat was a cute amenity. We were a bit surprised by the lack of closet/wardrobe; the coatrack wasn't really enough to hang all of our clothes on. Also, towel racks would be a welcome addition to the otherwise very well-appointed bathroom.

We can't say enough about the kindness of the staff and the degree to which we were truly made to feel at home. We especially appreciated the daily snacks in the room and the unlimited supply of bottled water just down the hall. When we fell ill, the staff went out of their way to make sure we were supplied day and night with comfort food and medicines-- for which they wouldn't accept our offer of payment.

Federika and Manoj really deserve support: they are actively trying to improve the city, its services, and the environs of their hotel and the Fort (see ilovejaisalmer.com). They are doing their best to promote sustainable tourism and to source from local artisans and craftspeople. If we were to visit Jaisalmer again, we wouldn't consider staying anywhere but 1st Gate.

This is an excellent hotel and perfectly located for sightseeing and relaxing in Jaisalmer. The hotel is a short drive from the railway station and is located just outside the fort, about 2 minutes' walk from the first gate. The hotel is beautifully decorated in neutral colours and natural materials and gives the rooms a calming effect. The bathroom was also furnished to a very high standard with a great shower. Rooms were well equipped with toiletries, tea and coffee, a mini bar, bathrobes etc. the staff were brilliant, without exception. We were given a lift to the station and even shown to our seats on the train, which was a huge help! We were also given sandwiches and water for the journey. We ate dinner in the rooftop restaurant overlooking the fort, and the food was excellent. The choice is Indian or Italian, and we went for Indian dishes, although I'm sure the Italian choices would also be good. Breakfast was also delicious, and again there is a variety of options. This hotel has not been open too long but they already seem to be achieving a high standard of professional service. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel and wish we could have stayed longer!
