We recently stayed for 3 nights at Hotel Gulaal in their deluxe room. We decided this placed just based on exceptionally good reviews and can vouch that this place is excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. 1) Great Location : This place is at walkable distance from fort /market but little away from hustle bustle of market , hence quiet peaceful. From their rooftop restaurant, you get amazing view of fort. Only thing is entrance road to the hotel is bit ok but that can be totally ignored after seeing the property 2) Rooms : Rooms are big, very well made , good decor and entire property is extremely clean. They have nice Indian seating in each room by the window. Entire staff is taking good precautions for COVID and it is well sanitized. We got a chance to have a look at their luxury suite rooms and they are simply superb - especially fort view room. 3) Hospitality : Mr. Virendra Singh and his entire team took very good care of us thus making us feel at home. Hotel looks like Grand Haveli having those antique touch and provides all luxury amenities. Entire staff is extremely courteous and helpful. 4) Food : Mr. Babu and his team manages restaurant area very well. Breakfast is ala carte and they prepare as per what we want. Everything is freshly prepared and food was amazing, especially Daal Baati. Loved having meals at their rooftop restaurant. They also have enclosed restaurant at rooftop where you can still enjoy good view and feel little cosy during winter. Recommend stay at this place if you are visiting jaisalmer.

Gulaal has it all - excellent roooms, amazing staff and great food. I loved my stay at Room 106, with it’s cozy round cushioned corner and spacious toilet. Also the terrace has an amazing restaurant with great view of the Sonar Fort. After trying food across the city, I found the best food was at Gulaal. The rooms are great value for money.

Gulal! Our friends had said if you are to go to jaisalmer, you have to stay at the Gulal, and no where else. And now we know why!! A beautiful piece of gem in the middle of the city with a magnificent view of the grand fort of Jaisalmer. Here are the reasons why it has to be Gulal in Jaisalmer! 1. Location, location, location!The awesome view of the Fort, the walkable distance from the Fort and Gadi Sagar Lake add to the charm of Gulal. 2. Mr Virender Singh, the face and soul of the Gulal. Friendly, helpful, hands on and very resourceful. 3. The food! Yummmmm...sit on the terrace, facing the Fort and devour the delicious meals. 4. The exclusive Desert Safari organized by Gulal. You get to experience the sand dunes from almost the heart of the Thar desert. With the most amazing Abdullah and Farid and their adorable camels- Johny, Simon and Mr Kalu! They cooked an amazing simple dinner on the dunes and we wined and dined under the canopy of stars and watched the beautiful desert moon rise! 7 stars to Abdullah and Farid!! 5. And last, but definitely not the least, is the gorgeous structure of Gulal...very tastefully done, with pieces of art on the walls and in the nooks and corners. Spotlessly clean and spacious rooms and very friendly staff. I am definitely going back!
