Matt and I spent 5 nights in Jaisalmer at Surja and Askar was a young and wonderful host! He took care of us all the time, was sweet and helped us to book the best camel safari ever for a very low price. The room was clean, spacious (we had the choice as it is low season) and we were... More

Good location inside Fort, providing great view from rooftop restaurant. Rooms vary a lot, so it is best to make your choice only once you have seen them. Value is average, so is the food. The young staff is really great and helpful.

One of the best views in Jaisalmer from the restaurant, lovely rooms (especially the ones with the balconies looking over the city), wonderful people and fantastic camel safari experience. Raj and Yogi are two of the best hosts in India and we all wanted to take the waiter Askar home with us. Nothing was too much trouble for them and... More

The room rates of this place made us a bit unsure about our plans to stay here in Jaisalmer. But what a discovery !! Even a 5 star property might not have the kind of service provided by Surja hotel. Clean rooms, prompt service and an amazing view from the restaurant or rather "lounge" of the hotel. The owners went... More

Want to stay inside a fort? Look no further - Jaisalmer fort is a living fort with many homes and guest houses. We stayed here for 2 nights for under 500 bucks per person. Rooms are clean with the most stunning view of the city. Hotel Surja has the most friendly and helpful staff. The owner Yogi provided us with... More
