A great place to stay in Jaisalmer. just the fact that you are staying in the only living fort in India is good enough, but staying at Victoria makes it even better. The hotel itself is made after combining 2 hevelis inside the fort. So no room is the same, some have great views some have none, some are large some are too small. Be sure to call and chat up with Pankaj (owner) before booking, he is very helpful and a great gentleman. He has his team of Nepalese men working for him, who are equally helpful and always smiling.
the best part about this hotel or homestay is its sunset view from its terrace which is also a great place to chat up with other fellow travelers. you can sit there and watch the sky turn yellow to orange to dark blue, before the night takes over.
Just be prepared to climb a lot of steep steps, surely not a good option if you have any older folks in your group.
Also remember there is no parking anywhere inside the fort, but Pankaj will make sure that you are picked up in an tuk tuk from the parking below.
Overall a great place to stay inside the fort.
