“Home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

As a single woman travelling in India, I felt completely safe staying at Residency Centre Point in Jaiselmer. Pramod and his family make this guest house an amazing place to stay. I was so well taken care of by the entire family who runs Residency Centre Point. They went over and above in making my stay in Jaiselmer unforgettable: from coordinating a half day tour for me on short notice, to taking me around to shops and helping me get the best prices possible. I really wish I could have stayed here longer and will definitely stay here on my next trip to Jaiselmer.

We booked this hotel through Agoda. While the hotel rooms are very basic, the warmth of the family who run the guest house truly make you feel like family and very much at ease. We stayed here for two nights, either side of our camel safari and we felt perfectly comfortable to leave all our luggage locked in a drum at the guesthouse while away for a night. Hot water cylinder is quite small but they will heat it when you require hot water. Rooms are a little chilly in the winter (but they will bring you an extra blanket). No meals are included but they are always prepared for breakfast (on rooftop restaurant or in room if too chilly up there). Lunch and dinner will be made for you if you give them a couple of hours notice - they make it from scratch/to order. For R160 a night, this is a good budget choice.

Room Tip: All rooms are relatively noisy but this is India! Get used to it :)

Our room was very clean, the view of the fort from the rooftop restaurant was spectacular and the owner and his son were very helpful. The food is all cooked fresh (so it takes a while) and they were very good at serving non-spicy options for our kids (who can't handle spicy food). The owner's son even taught our kids to fly their kites from the roof.

The sign at the front promises "no hassle" and they are true to their word. We asked about the camel safari offered through the hotel but we were not pressured to take it. When we decided to book a camel safari with someone else the owner was fine about it and let us store our luggage at the guesthouse for free in secure barrels with our own padlock. All in all, a great experience. We have no hesitation in recommending.

Room Tip: Ask for a soft pillow. The water needs to be heated by fire so you need to give the owner a little n...

I had a great stay with Dheeraj family.
I stayed 5 nights and I enjoyed jaisalmer slowly slowly.
Room was big, clean and luminous.
Food is homemade in the house kitchen, prepared by family madam, so quality is better than normal touristic restaurants. Dal soup is recommended.
From rooftop restaurant, wonderful view on town and especially on the fort.
Mr. Promod offers a booking service about train and bus transports.
He booked my train to delhi, giving me some useful suggestions about the trip (blanket for the night).
I had good conversations in a family environment.
Highly recommended.

If you want to get away from the craziness, this is the place to go. It's on a smalle street so it's quiet and the rooftop has great views of the fort without the hassle that is around the fort. This is really a family run place and they make you feel like you're a guest in their home. The mom is a great cook and the homemade masala tea is great. Our room was clean and nicely painted.

We stayed only one night, but we enjoyed our time in this hotel very much. The owner, Pramod, who picked us up at the station, and his son were very helpfull, the room was very clean, and the view from the rooftop restaurant/terrace superb. Would definitely go there again!
