Very good place recommended 100%, nice rooms and excellent attention, the restaurant is very good and acceptable prices. Manu is a great host willing to help in every way possible besides being always willing to talk. If I returned to Jaisalmer I would not hesitate to return.

Perfect hotel in the middle of the fort and amazing value for the money! Clean spacious rooms were beautifully decorated. Rooftop restaurant is simple, but service was good and the beer was cheap! Great panoramic view of Jaisalmer. Would absolutely recommend.
