just came back from this hotel, and I have to say - it was my worst experience. There are so many negative points:
1) the hotel is below basic - not at all what they show in pics. Rooms are only just basic, not at all plush which they try to show through their website. My room wall was broken and toilet was very dirty. They have no electric kettle in the room - something I would expect from a decent hotel. All in all room quality was at par with a budget 1-2 star hotel.
2) Hotel is extremely expensive: apart from the room rate u pay (which I think is very high for the quality they give), the food is so expensive. To give a perspective, the most expensive restaurant's (called Trio in Jaisalmer) prices were half of those charged by the hotel for their own food. And food was not tasty at all. Avoid food (if u go here at all - which in the first place I strongly not recommend) at all costs here.
3) The hotel staff will push and push you to spend more in hotel. I requested a late check out and they said it was ok with them if we had lunch in the hotel. Very cheap. Also tried to overcharge me for the extra bed but I was smart enough to notice it and then they were sorry.
4) I asked for a piece of bread for my son and was charged 50 bucks for it. Asked for a 2km drop to railway station (was expecting to be complimentary since distance was only 2km) and was asked 300 bucks for it. Problem is you have to use their services because the location of the hotel is way off the city center.
To summarize, Jaislamer is a great place but my trip was saddened by this hotel, Take my advice and avoid this hotel at all costs.
