Hotel Tokyo Palace Jaisalmer
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 18, 2011

We would just like to send a recommendation for a new hotel in Jaisalmer in India - Tokyo Palace. It is supposed to be open now only half a year ago.
Until now it was the best budget place we stayed in our travel throughout India. The hotel itself is extremely spacious and has a superb natural ventilation! Also rooms are big, very clean, the mattresses are very comfortable and there is as well a small pool and free wi-fi and you can use the hotel computer for free as well. The staff is extremley helpful and they are not intrusive. There is also a nice rooftop restaurant with a view on a fort. The owner is working in Japan, so he has different access to the hotelier things than many other Indians. He is a proffesional! We also went to the camel safari with them and the price was reasonable (1100 r for one and a half day) and service was simply great.

We really recommend this place to all the other travelers, it is simply a relax from overcrowded India.

This is a superbly built and operated hotel. Brothers, Mathar and Nanga Khan pride themselves on taking care of every customer no matter what the request. The hotel is a gorgeously carved havelli in the maharaja palace style. The rooftop restaurant offers excellent food well into the late evening with amazing views of the fort and the rooms are spotless and beautifully decorated with very comfortable beds, western toilets, and flatscreens with full channel access. The WIFI is free and there is a lovely pool that is perfect for cooling off after a day in the sun. The hotel offers free pick-up / return from / to the train and bus stations and it is best to call upon arrival for a ride. The hotel is only a 30 to 40 Rs. rickshaw ride to all the local sites and restaurants and is a ten minute walk to the Jaisalmer fort.

My husband and I also took advantage of the camel safari organized through the hotel and after 20+ years of travelling, it ranks on my top 10 list of best travel experiences.

Overall, this is one of the best hotels we have stayed at in India over the years. The prices are very reasonable (we travel on a budget) and the service is superb.

A big thank-you to Mathar and Nanga for creating a beautiful oasis in Jaisalmer.

Stay here, you won't be disappointed and it will be difficult to leave!

Shanti om,

The best thing about this hotel is there staff - too cooperative and very humble.
as far as facilites are concerned - nicely decorated room (showing culture or rajasthan), roof-top restaurent with fort view.
they also made your schedule for moving around jaisalmer according to customers timing.
They planned for me the trip to tannot - then desert safari and one night stay at camp - an amazing moment - i never want to forget - the dance & masti - with rajasthani culture.
In all the best place to stay in jaisalmer.

We stayed there for two nights and enjoyed it very much. The rooms are very beautiful with nice decoration and a great Fort-View from the rooftop restaurant. The manager, a very friendly person, looked very good after us. They have free internet in most of the rooms. The only negative point was that we had to ask for fresh bedlinen at the first day.

We stayer here for three days. Our staying in this hotel was very very confortable.
They have a roof with a beautiful view on the Fort of Jaisalmer, in which we had good breakfasts and dinners with stars and delicious views.
We suggest it, also because it is new one and has wide well decorated rooms.
Last but not least, they are a good value for money.

One of the staff was travelling from Jodphur to Jaisalmeer and conveniently had brochures in his pockets. Upon arrival, he had the hotel jeep pick us and a couple of other tourists to view the hotel (free pickup). Since it was low season, we were charged Rupees 400 for a double room A/C ensuite bathroom. Room/bath was superbly clean (probably because it was new). Free wifi, if you don't have a laptop, you can use their public laptop in the lobby.

It's about a 15min leisurely walk to the Walled City & nearest entrance to the Golden Fort (although when they were trying to sell us the rooms they told us it was only 3-5mins walk!). When we were there, they were still building the swimming pool.

Hotel staff were friendly enough, nothing too special.

I would advice other travellers to check around for the camel safari price & package. We paid about Rupees 6000 (2pax) for a 1.5 day trip which include 3 meals, some soft drinks, 2 beers and a tent for night accomodation. However, we discovered they packed half rotten vegetables for our meals and all the eggs were broken by the time we wanted to cook for lunch! It wasn't pleasant.

They have a rooftop dining area - which I can imagine to be very pleasant but when I was there, it was the windy season and nobody ate up on the roof with sand flying everywhere.
