Visited Jaisalmer this Christmas with my friends. We had our booking at Shiva's cafe and guest house which is a really nice, peaceful place to stay when visiting Jaisalmer.

the room was rustic but comfortable. Plenty of space, and the bed was comfortable and clean. I felt like it was more of a fort than a hotel room, and that was exciting for me, as a solo male.

This charming guest house proposes good quality price ratio camel safaris in the Thar desert. Moreover, the owner of the guest house is super nice and the food is delicious: especially the chocolate pancake!

Even though I was really ill during my stay in shivas the two brothers did their best to make my stay as pleasant as possible. Ride to the hospital+pharmacy included. The location is great, you're literally in the fort of jaisalmer and can look down over the city! Thank you guys again!
