Stayed here 1 night and did a 1 night camel safari from/through here and don't have a single complaint.
Upon arriving to town, Shahi Palace sent a complimentary taxi to grab us from the bus station (MUCH appreciated as the other tuk tuk/taxi drivers are worse than hungry vultures).
We were shown 3 rooms, all reasonably priced and were able to choose which we wanted.
The building and decorations are beautiful, rooms are clean and the staff/owner were extremely helpful and friendly. We had a great night sleep, loved the restaurant and the hot water shower is always appreciated.
All prices for rooms, safari, tours, food were fair and we felt safe and taken care of on our safari (I've heard horror stories about budget safari's from other travelers, but ours was great).
Although Shahi isn't located inside the fort (most places aren't), the rooftop has a beautiful view of it and you can get to the fort gates in about a 5 minute walk.
The most impressive thing though was upon our check-out, the owner asked us directly if there's anything he could do to improve his hotel. The only thing we could come up with (after much thought) was perhaps he could put a few more outlets in the rooms so we could charge our devices. That was it. So, virtually, zero complaints.
Thanks for a great time in Jaisalmer Shahi!
