We stayed for 3 nights with suraj, and went on their camel safari too. Our room had a beautiful balcony with views of the Jain temple. Very well priced, and the owners were all such lovely people too 5 stars!

We were looking for authentic rooms in the fort of jaisalmer which where affordable and we found them at Suraj Vilas. The owners didn't destroy the old beautiful buildings like many other hotel owner did but left them as they have been. Of corse that means, that the walls are a bit rough and you don't have windows. But if you stay in the fort, that's what you should like about it, right?

The Vilas also have a lovely rooftop restaurant, where you can look over the jain temple in the fort and from the building on the fort wall you have the perfect view for the sunrise.

the food is delicious!

Room Tip: Also check the suite they have. We didn't want to spend more money but if you want to have a mor...

I did last minute plan to travel from jodhpur to jaisalmer. I was pretty scarred so I took couple of hotel numbers and tried reaching out them by phone. Only Chimmi responded spontaneously where he knows im travelling middle of the night. I reached at around 3am there. He looks pretty cold but very friendly in nature. He helped me arranging desert safari, bus ticket to jaipur, getting credit card cash, sending me to the bus station and so on. Very trustful person. All the employees are so friendly. I had long conversation with his cook also. His hotel has the mesmerazing view of jaisalmer jain temple. Never seen such a strategic location. The hotel beds has haveli style room. All backpackers you should go for this hotel for sure. Never leave the opportunity.

We stayed for 4 nights in this hotel right next to the Jain temples, Good sized room with window seat overlooking one of the many alleys. Comfortable, clean bed & adequate attached bathroom.
The hotel has lovely roof terrace to chill on and watch the sunset. Good price for Fort area. Could be a little noisy at times, but suspect this applys to anywhere in the Fort.

Chimmie & his staff were great........friendly, helpful & efficient.....really made our stay a good experience......despite the rather dodgy electrics in our room!

We did a desert trip thru Chimmie........he promised a trip to place that was not overrun with other tours. It was fantastic.......just us & 2 other guests from hotel & vast expanse of desert. He packed a thali meal for us to eat in desert at sunset & it was some of the best food we tasted in Jaisalmer. Very fair price.

Room Tip: There is a rather special room where we spent our last day as someone wanted our budget room......mo...
