“Really personalised service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

We stayed at Garh Jaisal in August this year. It's a very small place with lots of character set right in the walls of the ancient fort. We had fabulous views over the old town which we could see either from the balcony/window seat in the room or from the rooftop restaurant. In the mornings the air around the fort is full of birds, in the afternoons it is thick with brightly coloured dragonflies and in the evening you can watch giant bats arriving back to roost for the night. Tarun and his team made us feel really welcome and nothing was too much trouble. On our last evening they cooked us a complimentary fantastic meal consisting of lots of wonderful dishes and when we left they gave us a little gift of a small pottery Ganesh which is now on the wall at home over the front door!

We traveled from Mumbai to Jaisalmer in Aug 2013. We had booked our stay in Garh Jaisal with mixed thoughts ,but the moment we stepped in and were greeted with such warmth we were sure we booked at the right place. A cozy neat place to stay , very hospitable staff, clean rooms , homely and delicious food ..strategically located with some great views and very close to main attractions.
The hotel has maintained the old look and charm which holds it's character . Each room has been thoughtfully decorated .We almost felt at home during our stay. It was indeed a very comfortable and satisfactory stay. A big Thanks to Tarun for assuring a great stay.!

We had a fabulous stay at Garh Jaisal!! The Haveli's location inside the old fort is close to the main gate and very appealing, so is its interiour style... very light, clean and lots of attention to detail. Very well managed and run. We were staying at the Opium Room which is furnished with traditional items, a large kingsize bed, lots of cushions and colorful mirror mosaics on the walls (quite similar to the other rooms we saw in this Haveli, but we especially liked the color theme of this room; see pictures attached) - you really feel like a Maharaja straight out of Thousands Night and a Night :-) We liked especially to sit on the window sill enjoying the incredible view from our room. I believe the rooftop terrace features one of the best views over Jaisalmer you could possibly have (great to have breakfast/lunch/dinner there!). The hotel doesn't seem to have an own restaurant, but caters excellent food from a restaurant closeby without any additional charges. At checkout we found out that water, coffee and tea was even included in the room charge. After all we felt incredibly comfortable and I want to say a big thank you to Tarun, who provided to us with (by far!) the most personal, most excellent hospitality and service we experienced during our 3,5 weeks of travelling throughout Rajasthan and Kashmir (staying in boutique guesthouses or upper class hotels). At some point I wondered whether we were wrongly assumed to be some travel book writers testing hotels ;-) Upon our request Tarun also organized a very nice private overnight camel safari for us - sleeping on the dunes, under the stars, no other tourists around. As romantic as it can get :-) Thank you again Tarun and also many thanks to your staff and hope to come back one day!

Room Tip: We loved the color theme and interior of the Opium room. There's no outside balcony in this room...

We stayed in this hotel for a couple of days in August'13.
It was a bit pricey by our standards but what we loved about this hotel is the view of the city and look and feel of the hotel.
I preferred to stay in the "Opium Room" while making the reservation but instead we were upgraded to Purple Room which had a different feel.
We would have preferred to be informed earlier about the change.
The room was "richly" decorated in traditional Rajasthani Style and we truly felt like "Royals".
We went there during off peak and were the only ones staying in the hotel! So we felt all the more majestic!
Boys in the hotel were very helpful in every sense and made sure we got comfortable in the hotel.
Tarun, Manager of this hotel was very accommodating and even helped us plan our local sight seeing. Before you are booking tours with the hotel, make sure you enquire on the best deals around and pay for what you get!
Overall, it was an enjoyable experience and would recommend this hotel to anybody who would want to live like a "KING"!

Amazing renovation of an old building inside the fort of Jaisalmer, good breakfast on the terrace, very nice rooms and a smart hotel manager who runs the hotel in an "international way". One of our best picks during the journey in India.
