“Pathetic Hotel - the worst I have stayed in”
Reviewed November 7, 2010

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.

It took us some time to find the hotel !! Considering that Jaisalmer is a miniscule city, says a lot about location. It is slightly away from the main city and therefore offers peace. However, once you know the place, getting and out was no problem. The room was reasonably big, bed very comfortable. Bathroom was big, but the shower was in between the bath-tub and the wash basin. So, if you are not a bath-tub person, you would wet the entire bathroom and make it difficult for other members. However, this was a small deterrant. More than made up by extremely courteous service. The food was very tasty - specially the Rajasthani dishes - Ker Sangri, Kadhi Chawal. Check-in and check-out was a breeze. The only problem - unwillingness to accept credit card. I was told that swimming pool was being constructed.

We visited Jaisalmer with our group of friends from London. Though we were aware of the heat in Rajasthan, we still braved the heat. Surprisingly, it was fun in the heat with the hotel being extremely relaxing after our day's expedition. Everything about it was absolutely amazing. We have amazing memories of Rajasthan and India. We hope to visit India again and surely we'll stay in Hotel Jaisalgarh and use their Swimming Pool, which we missed by a few months this time around as it was under construction.

Beautiful hotel located next to a great destination. Have always thought about going to Jaisalmer, finally made it ! We had a great time. The hotel staff is great, the place was beautiful and well maintained and the sand safari they organised was breathtaking. Wish we could stay longer. We would recommend this hotel.

On recommendation of a friend hailing from Jodhpur, we chose Hotel jaisal garh for our stay. We arrived by graveyard shift- Jodhpur train, and were picked by Hotel. The room was on Ground Floor, and didnot get us Fort View, so we asked them to change to another floor, with fort view Very nice comfortable stay, full of good memories. Good people to stay with. What was novel about this Hotel is thier in-house newspaper "The Jaisalgarh Times" with motto of "EVERYTHING BUT TRUE". Front Office staff told us since they donot get thier newspaper in time from Delhi- they decided to publish thier own !
