Hotel Paradise Palace on Fort
Ranked #34 of 155 Jaisalmer B&B and Inns
Reviewed January 19, 2010

The biggest advantage of Paradise is its location- right inside the fort near the main entrance. It has a beautiful courtyard inside, and the staff are friendly. The rooms are simple, and nothing special, but quite clean- also, there wasn't any shortage of water. The only blip was that they promised us a camel per person in the desert safari, but then gave us a camel per two persons. They did deduct Rs 50/- from the Rs 400/- that we had initially agreed to pay a person for the transportation from the hotel to Khuri and the camel ride, but I guess it was still not a very good deal. Anyway, a decent hotel overall.

Having booked into a highly rated hotel nearby where we were ripped off and woken at 3.30 am by the market starting up below, we looked around and found the Paradise. Good value, hospitable, true Brahmin values (except they allowed drinking and smoking in the roof top restaurant!) and also organised a camel safari just for us, with no hype attached.
Quiet, with a delightful, bird-filled courtyard and two roof-top terraces. Good sized rooms, clean bedding, adequate bathrooms with hot water.
We liked the owner and all the staff - really friendly and willing and brought us bed tea in the morning at no extra charge! And not one of them offered to take us to their uncle's/nephew's/cousin's shop ......

I chanced upon hotel Paradise on the internet. By then, I had already booked my hotel in Jaisalmer and was rather happy with my choice. But then someone told me that one could live inside the Jaisalmer fort and i set out on an internet search for hotels inside the fort. And that's how I found Paradise. I called up the hotel and the owner, who answered the call came across as very friendly. Without asking for any advance, he agreed to keep a room for me and my husband. We had opted for a room on the first floor of the hotel - a room with a view! We were received by the Paradise guys at the station and escorted to the hotel. It's a lovely neat place with very warm people. It's actually a house which has been turned into a hotel and is truly heritage in its look. The best part is the view from the hotel. You can see the Jaisalmer city lying before you from the hotel terrace and from some rooms, including the one we were in. In fact after our first day of stay there, I cancelled the booking at the other hotel we had initially booked.

We were staying in room 105, which is neatly furnished with beds, carpets, a seating area, TV and airconditioner. The interiors are done in a traditional manner, but lend a lovely look to the room. Though they serve only morning tea and breakfast, you can opt to order for food from a restaurant that's next door and eat from a range of restaurants inside the fort. As against popular belief, there is no water crisis inside the fort and nor is it unsafe to stay there.

In Paradise one can spend a good part of the day just lazing around on the terrace that has neat and comfortable seating areas. In fact a lot of outside guests come to the hotel to watch the sunset from this terrace. At night you can either sit on the terrace or in the verandha in your room and look at the beautifully lit city as you share a drink with your dear one.

The people in this hotel are honest and nice. You can get a room for anything between Rs 600 to RS 1500 depending on what kind of room you want. But I would say, just hop in to Paradise before you decide on anyother place.

"Welcome to Paradise" That is how you are greeted upon arrival at this hotel. It has a good location and a friendly, helpful staff. The rooms are basic - nothing to write home about. You can do a lot worse!

This may not be the best hotel within the fort but it's certainly in the best position - with rooftop terrace views over the Maharawal's Palace on one side and over the ramparts and out to the desert on the other. Hard to beat.
The staff are helpful and friendly and can arrange desert camel safaris and other sightseeing trips. No restaurant as such but they'll do breakfast, snacks, tea, coffee and serve beer - there are plenty of good restaurants within a few minutes walk.
We paid 650rps (about 16USD) for a clean, basic, double AC room with attached bathroom.

Better late than never. Since there are no reviews of the Paradise, I will add my lasting impressions of two years ago.

This hotel is inside the Fort, just at the top after entering the gates. Look up and ahead and you will see the painted sign. The management was very friendly, as were the employees who took your morning breakfast order, cleaned your room and carried your luggage.

My room, one of the nicest I saw, had a shallow balcony in the fort wall, so you could open the "French" doors and look out upon the city southward. The room was basic and very Indian in decor. I enjoyed it as "authentic" and everything was very clean. The roof of the Paradise is a traditional spot for westerners from around Jaisalmer to view the sunsets, with drinks and seating for many. A very friendly place to strike up conversations with other visitors.

The breakfasts were good and filling, served outdoors in the chilly morning air under tent-like fabrics. I will return someday as the entire experience, from hospitality to the room views was great.
