The land of Jaisalmer reminds you of the past days of maharajas and their havelis with fine architecture and eye catching facades. We are pleased to announce that our haveli is among one of them. Named after the founder of this haveli, Shree Suraj Karan G, our haveli is 500 years old converted into hotel being the 18th generation of same family who made this building. We can proudly say that we are among one of the hotels who started the trend of haveli style and homestay hotels. Running our haveli as a homestay from last 25 years we have received a lot of love and complements regarding our hotel. The main reason behind is that we haven't changed the main structure and antique theme of our rooms. Staying on ground floor we have converted upper floor rooms into hotel rooms with a bit of modern facilities so that the guests can get all the comfort enjoying the history of haveli.

As the title says living in the fort was totally a different experience from all wat we've had before..Hotel suraj is one of the oldest and tallest building close to jain temple, giving you a panoramic view of the golden City.. With Harshed around you will need no itinerary for your time there..he's got it sorted..

We stayed here in November. The whole places is just stunning. The owners are helpful and gave us a room in which to chill until our booked room was ready. They made us kheer sangri, a must-have desert dish. At night we lit candles in the Maharani suite during a blackout and experienced real history. The whole thing is so beautiful and surreal. It isnt fancy, but that just makes you touch india more. We did a camel trek and afterwards they let us come and rest and shower at an interim room which was great. Honestly the whole thing was so beautiful it bamboozled me, and I have to go again to make sense of it all.

A fantastic place, original, charming, rustic, situated inside the fort in 500 years old haveli. A bit cold in January at nighttime, but they offered plenty of blankets and plenty of hot water in the tubes. Nice beds. Difficult to reach the wifi from the room, it was possible from the roof terrace where you'll get wonderful breakfast in the morning sun. Nice people. Incredible to live inside the fort. It is an adventure. Go to Jaisalmer when in India!

We had a wonderful time at the hotel suraj. It's an incredible historical Building, standard is simple but that makes it authentic and Unique!! Every morning Lalit heated up the watertank by making a fire, so we could have a warm shower. Additionally they serve the best food that we had in india. The Family of the suraj even invited us to attend to a wedding ceremony. It's rather a home than a hotel. We highly recommend to stay here.

This beautiful hotel catered to all of our needs. When we arrived at the Jaisalmer Fort, they came and took our heavy bags up to the hotel. We got to the hotel which is a few hundred years old and met the owner and his family. He said we could go straight to our room and get comfortable, and that the paperwork could wait. Although there’s no heating in such an old building, they provided us with loads of soft blankets, and the room we stayed in was the oldest in the building, and it was fantastic. They organised our desert safari, our bus to Jaipur, and they brought breakfast to our room everyday. Really recommend this to anyone.
