“Wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed January 10, 2007

We booked Jawahar Niwas through Aamantran tours. Dealing with Aamantran tours was easy and recommended. They also arranged our travel from Jodhpur to Jaisalmer. Jawahar Niwas Palace is quite a mixed bag. The rooms were very ordinary, but the location was great. Hot water was not available always. The best feature was the food, which is absolutely the best we had anywhere in India. Though not in the fort or in the town, this hotel is still very close to all major attractions. The managers were very helpful in making our stay comfortable.

  • Liked — Great food!
  • Disliked — Spotty hot water
  • Tips/Secrets — Book through Aamantran tours. It is easier than contacting the hotel directly.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights in one of the larger rooms (suite?) directly above the main entrance looking towards the fort.

As with a lot of heritage places the room had high ceilings and a couple of bay windows with cushions - and a chair swing !!
The bathroom is a little functional but everything worked and there was always hot water. Overall the room was clean and comfortable - with 2 a/c units to keep it cool.

The pool was disappointing and the water was cloudy - although I saw it getting cleaned every morning. Good massage, fair breakfast, OK bed.

So why stay there ? It is very close to the fort and just a short walk to the gate. But, there are better choices inside if you can sacrifice the pool (not difficult). The Killa Bhawan looked tremendous - and with very friendly staff (to speak to at least) - if you are happy to share their very luxurious bathrooms with others.

  • Liked — Swing
  • Disliked — Pool
  • Tips/Secrets — Sleeping on the sand dunes for the camel trek will bring you close to nature - and dung beetles !!

This hotel is in a beautiful building very close to the entrace to the city of Jaisalmer. It has a view of the fort. Rooms are big and comfortable but they have a plumbing problem. We had 2 rooms and in both the toilets didn´t flush properly. In the shower sometimes water came out, sometimes it didn´t. Hot water was also a problem. The breakfast buffet was lacking... hard-boiled eggs, cornflakes, leftover Indian food from the previous night. Dinner was mediocre. Avoid the Chinese dishes.
