Reviewed October 26, 2013

A lovely place to stay, rooms are all fantastically fitted out to give you the feeling of living in a Rajasthan palace. The staff are great and the food excellent. Position in the fort gives excellent views over the city and the whole hotel is spotlessly clean. A good place for couples or families.

We stayed at Hotel Victoria for 2 nights and found it to be great and very comfortable place. Mr Pankaj and his staff made our stay memorable. We got the room upgraded to one with jharoka and great view of the city and sunset. Loved the dinner and breakfast too. Best place of this hotel is its rooftop, where one can just sit or lay down and enjoy pleasant evenings and candle lit dinner, simply awesome.

Good heritage, VFM hotel. Great staff and I loved my 2 days stay over there...the parking is a problem , but that is a common thing if you want to be inside the fort as no hotels can be approached directly by your vehicles, thanks to the narrow streets. The hotel people would come and pick you up using autorikshaw. (Tuk-tuk).

We booked at Hotel Victoria after reading great reviews and it truly paid off. Mr. Pankaj and his help Mr Sushil left no stone unturned to make it a homely stay. We were in room 2 which is very nice (bathroom is a bit small) - otherwise great AC, even has a small refrigerator! The jharokha is awesome, can see the view of the entire jaisalmer city and a great place to just relax and read a book. Get this room if possible, its worth it. Food is just too good - We are a food junkie, and in our entire 8 day stay in Rajasthan, best food - better than home. Sushil even got us local sweets both the days - which were just too good. We were treated so nicely- that the little walk from the gate of the kila to the hotel did not feel bad. I should warn that the condition of the kila itself is not good, as local residents stay, roads are narrow and not so clean - but if you can overlook that - its a very good place to stay! I would highly recommend.

Room Tip: Try and see if you can get Room2.

We stayed at the Victoria in September 2013. Our rooms were excellent (first floor front and first floor overlooking the city) though one first floor room that we saw into was very small. Great views from the roof terrace but no shade. Good food, friendly service and clean throughout. Prices are negotiable off-season and we only paid £18 each.
Top marks to one of the local tuk-tuk drivers, Rahul, who works from the main square in the fort. He was good company when we hired him for a day of sightseeing and even let me drive!

Hotel victoria is beautiful and the owners have considered everything to make you comfortable in luxurious surroundings. The location within the fort is very special. Not at all like the centre of a busy town its got everything you need without the mania of indian roads on your doorstep! The owners do everything to ensure you have all you need. The view from the roof / eating / relaxing area was spectacular, especially watching the sunset. Wonderful place to stay!

Room Tip: The smallest room was very small and the bathroom door would not shut as it caught on the bed. We h...

We are just back from Jaisalmer where we stayed in the Hotel Victoria, a boutique hotel in the fort with beautifully decorated and furnished rooms. Our room had traditional carved furniture, local stone work and antiques, a gorgeous embroidered bedspread and silk pillows, very good linens and fluffy towels. We also had a great view from our room and from the rooftop café where we had dinner and breakfast, all excellent. The owner, Pankaj Purohit is a very warm person and Sushil and all the staff are very kind and really looked after us. So glad Sushil recommended the fruit-filled pancakes! Excellent jasmine ayurvedic soap, toothpaste and shampoo were placed in our bathroom. Centrally located but in a quiet lane in the fort we felt we were living in history. They arranged a great camel riding trip for us too and also arranged a very good car and driver for our drive to Jodhpur.
