“Immerse in golden city view”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

I googled some best hotels in jaisalmer with good ambience/views and stumbled on Hotel surja. The hotel gave a special ecstasy to my jaisalmer visit. The camel safari took from hotel is also worth it and I took non touristic sand dunes trip as I liked it. Secondly the hospitality was very good and had everything/information whatever I wanted. About food I would rate it as average as, you can savor local food in small shops. I would highly recommend spending a night atleast in Surja to complete your jaisalmer visit.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms with city view if you are an ambience lover. Prefer village/interior fort life view...

Definitely overrated. The rooms were not clean and it would be a stretch to call the bathroom, basic.
The bed was not comfortable and caved in when my Dad was on it.
The attitude changed when I did not opt for the camel safari.
We had to leave earlier than planned, due to my sister-in-law falling sick, and I was concerned about the medical facilities in Jaisalmer. The manager was so rude about us leaving earlier and charged us for half a day extra.
The only good thing was the location and view.

Dear BogusGenuis,
Can you please kindly send us your check in and checkout date. As we had no any guest from Kuala Lumpur neither from Malaysia throughtout March .
For your concern, there are different hotel with kinda similar names which sound exact as our's. So I request you to check it again and dispatch the review on the correct location or we would request it to be a fake review.

Best Regards

We stayed here for one night. We arrived in Jaisalmer in the early morning and made our way to the fort, not knowing where the hotel was. We were greeted by the manager at the main square and shown to the hotel. We were able to check into the room early and given a better room than we had paid for. The room was built into the fort and had excellent views over the city. Wifi worked in the room and it was very clean. We were also given towels.

We were only staying here one night as we were going on a camel safari the next evening. The manager allowed us to keep our bags at the hotel whilst we went on the camel safari and when we got back from it, gave us a room for the afternoon completely free in which we could shower and rest! When we then came to leave he also gave us free water for our journey!

The staff here were the nicest and friendliest people we have met in our 6 weeks in India!

We would highly recommend people to stay here!
