“AMAZING hospitality!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013 via mobile

I stayed at Shahi palace with two friends in September, 2013, for two nights, and we all loved it! Our reasonably priced room was simple and very pleasant, decorated in authentic Indian style with a powerful AC - very important for summer in India! The rooftop restaurant and lounge area was our favorite part - we spent one evening relaxing and watching the sunset, followed by a delicious dinner from their kitchens. The view of the fort is absolutely beautiful and there are great cushioned lounges to rest on. Make sure to try the Paneer butter Masala - it was spectacular! Breakfast on the beautiful roof was also included.

Most importanty, the owners and staff were incredibly helpful and friendly - they went above and beyond to make our trip spectacular and memorable, and getting to know them was a huge bonus to our trip.

Hotel Sahi Palace is one of the best Hotel quality/price.

For me the best part was that they pay attention to the guest all the time and do they best in order you feel comfortable.

If you have time just stay in the top roof!

I stayed here with my partner for 2 nights in early July. Our en suite room with A/C and a TV cost 700R per night (we made a reservation by email a couple of days before arrival). The staff were fantastic and the rooftop restaurant was excellent. The hotel picked us up from and dropped us off at the train station, and also arranged for us to take an overnight camel safari which was a truly unforgettable experience. The hotel manager, Jura, also knew the Lonely Planet recommended doctor in Jaisalmer who will do callouts if necessary. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

Shahi Palace is a hotel we were taken to at 2 AM kinda by accident. We arrived in Jaisalmer middle of the night, the polite host that had to pick up our fellow travelers took us by car to the hotel. We were offered a great, beautifully designed room, huge comfy bed, nice clean bathroom with hot water and great water pressure unlike other places in India.

Shahi Palace has great rooftop restaurant that offers really good quality food (had the chicken biryani several times!), great music, great chill-out athmosphere. I'm not mentioning the view it offers - I'll just say few professional photographers were taken to the very rooftop so that they get the best angle for their shots.

I definitely recommend it, especially to traveling couples!

Though recommended by travel books (under budget option) were skeptical as such recommendations usually tend to be 'hippy' styled hostels of poor quality. However Shahi Palace was a pleasant surprise with great Rajasthani styled rooms, a great restaurant and very friendly and helpful staff.

The highlight however was the overnight desert safari which was very organized and great fun! There are other opinions that the safari is slightly overpriced, however given the quality and ease at which it was arranged meant an extra few hundred rupees were well spent. Great hotel, good prices and a lovely safari! Would definitely recommend!

Room Tip: Choose the larger rooms with AC and a good view of the fort. Ensure you book an overnight Desert Saf...
