“Terrible; avoid if possible”
Reviewed December 29, 2011

We checked into Hotel Prince on December 24 this holiday season after a long drive from Bikaner. We had booked the room in advance a fortnight ago and paid part of the tariff beforehand.

When we reached the hotel, we were disappointed at the dismal choice of rooms that we had despite having booked in advance. In the end, we settled for room no. 103, which the owners said was the best they had. The room had no telephone, so we were expected to walk up to the reception every time we had to order something or make a request. The room was OK on the inside but the overall 'feel' of the hotel was average at best. Right in front of the room was a water pumping motor that whirred throughout the day. The other occupants of the hotel were noisy and our room was right in the middle of the action.

The second night was worse. Apparently, the hotel guys had noticed some leakage in their plumbing system and were conveniently waiting for the "M-Seal to dry off" before they could release any water from the overhead tank. After hours of false promises, they provided us with two buckets of water at midnight. All of the rooms at the fully-occupied hotel managed without running water that night.

Next morning, we checked out and waited for our trip to the Sam Sand Dunes in the morning. Although the check-out time was an incredibly early 8 am, the hotel staff did make up for the ordeal previous night by reminding us to check out only at 10 am. We finally checked out at 11.

Except for a few minor issues, the stay at the sand dunes, arranged by the hotel, was a much better experience.

One huge plus we saw with this hotel was its location. Located at Hanuman Chauraya right in the heart of Jaisalmer, the hotel is walking distance from most tourist destinations. Apart from its location, the hotel has little to offer in terms of quality of service or stay.

Stay clear, if you can...
