“Worst experience. As if a army torture camp”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

There can not be a worse hotel staff and management. Literally zero courtesy. As if they are obliging us in a free dharamshala.horrible attitude of kerelian manager. Food was worst. No taste at all.bathrooms worst maintained. Water leaking from taps, drains blocked. I think that the owner who is a retired army colonel runs this like a army camp and not a hotel. Rules for even hot water for bathing !!!!!!!! Shocking!!! Dinner was pathetic !!!!! The daal was totally bland, paneer tasteless!. I would not pay even 1000 rupees for a day! The Kerelite manager is fit only to become a security watchman!! Not a hotel manager. Only that they have a great location, but What A PITY !!!!!!! They don't know how to run a hotel.

Room Tip: Don't even think of going to this place

Hotel rooms were terrible. service was bad. food wasnt good too. It all started with the checkin . I was told that the rooms were not available since the payment was not received from clear trip. After talking to clear trip for almost 1/2 hour 2 rooms were alloted as if they were doing a favour. the rooms are far apart . Water was pouring through the wash basin. The toliets were ordinary. Enough blankets were not provided

if ur planning ur holidays to be enjoyable then forget stayin in himmatgarh palace coz it is one f the worst hotels one can see its rooms are dirty not at all maintained ,bathrooms dirty not clean
when talking about service this hotel would top the worst service category, service boys are so mannerless and staff so uncoperative...in all rather stay on streets of jaislmer in chilly cold winters or exremely hot weather then goin to himmatgarh palace...shhh hate to even call it a palace.
trust me this is a genuine suggestion

It seems to be a fad in Jaisalmer to include the word "palace" in the name of every hotel property, more so since most of them have never been palaces ever.
Leaving that aside, the property is unique with a huge lawn facing the cottages with a swimming place and even a swing in place for those who may want to indulge in it. The rooms were fine and the bathrooms were clean - no complaints. The property is spacious, so there is peace & tranquility.
The breakfast was average. However, do try out their kebabs for lunch/dinner - they were really different and good.

Stayed in this hotel in October 2012. Hotel is good although location was a bit to find out. Check in was smooth. We had a Burj room which was pool facing. The pool was big and well maintained. Rooms were although small but good and were circular in shape. Bathrooms were clean. Food in the restaurant was just ok, even though we had dinner in the package but we were asked to take ala carte. Hotel has big parking space.
overall it was good.

Room Tip: Take Burj room. This is pool facing.

One of the best & most economic hotels in jaisalmer in view of the facilities & location. The hotel has a large swimming pool which is well maintained & very conveniently located poolside cottages. Another high scoring point for the hotel is its food & service which is extraordinary. The staff is very warm & courteous & always ready to go an extra mile to help you.
My overall experience is very good & I highly recommend this hotel whenever you visit Jaisalmer.

Room Tip: Choose poolside cottages
