Reviewed February 27, 2014

This hotel is located in the heart of jaisalmer. Everything is in walking distance (market,fort etc.) the rooms are clean and the staff is very friendly. Excellent view from the rooftop! You can also cook your own food, they provide a kitchen. Especially the hostel owner, is a very nice person. We had a great time with them, and we will come back!

Stayed: February 2014, traveled as a couple

This was my first stop in India. How it could be better? I was invited by the owner, Kolu, and I express to him my wishes for my stay in Jaisalmer. After few minutes he made everything true.
I like the place, the entrance, the room, the rooftop where I was eating with Kolu and his friends admiring the suggestive fort and with a lovely and magic atmosphere.
What Kolu does is not just a business, but a passion that come from the heart and that connect people, from every country and different reasons.

Around hime there are the people that work there, also very friendly, kind and always smiling by nature and the more 4 crazy people from the crew that you can see there often. They also run some business connected with tourism and travel, but don.t expect to be forced in some tour or whatever.
They first of all are nice people to talk and having good time with.

If you like to meet locals and if you are searching of something more true, this is the right place.

We had an amazing stay at Hotel City Heart in Jaisalmer. The location is ideal, near the fort but away from a lot of the chaotic other places for tourists to stay. You can really get an experience in the city while also finding peace and comfort in the rooms of the hotel. The rooms are IMPECCABLY clean and really well decorated, one of the homiest feeling hotels I've stayed in in India.

However, the BEST part of the stay was the group of friends who run the hotel, 5 friends from childhood as well as a few others guys they have befriended along the way. We stumbled upon the hotel one night when we were staying somewhere else when we went in to ask about a restaurant, and Kolu was so nice and didn't push any of the typical tourist pitches on us. He was friendly and helped us find a place to eat, so we decided we had to check a room and ended up staying. Anything we needed we could ask for and he would help us arrange but he wasn't bothering us about camel safaris all the time. We spent more time getting to know him and his friends, visiting their families and cooking meals with them in the hotel restaurant than seeing the sites, although they took us to many of them. We found a new understanding of Jaisalmer that the tourist guides wouldn't have shown us by spending time with these friends and their families. The best trip is one you don't want to leave, and this one definitely delivered that--I was heartbroken to say good bye to my new friends but couldn't wait to share my amazing experiences with them to my friends and family back home, and I know I will continue a friendship with these guys.

Hotel City Heart is the BEST place to stay in Jaisalmer. You will relax in comfort with a clean room, big bed, good bathroom and shower, nice views of the fort, but most of all WONDERFUL hosts to show you all of Jaisalmer, not just the fort and camels.

Located literally in the middle of all the tourist attractions in the golden city of Jalsalmer, look no further- this hotel is simply the best and friendliest.
The boss of this hotel is Kolu, and you can easily hit up a chat with him in the wonderful rooftop restaurant with Jalsalmer fort view. It's a very relaxing place to be.
The rooms are very cozy and spacious with different price, depending if you want a view or not.
