We drove down from jodhpur with a driver who was aware of jaisalmer a bit (regularly drives people between the two cities), but he had never heard of this hotel! After a bit of asking around, located this hotel to be on the outskirts of the city relatively (though Taj Gateway and other big hotels are also nearby).
Had read that this hotel offers fort views, but realised that 'view' could technically be from any distance - this was sort of our first let down... there are a lot of other hotels in jaisalmer which offer near and clearer view of the fort, and some of them are actually located within the fort.
reception was nice and warm, we were helped with a welcome drink. room interiors looked ok until we entered the bathroom which was a bit smelly. we found the in-room food tariffs a bit pricey - especially when the tea tasted salty, and when complained we were told that probably we were confused about the taste! wonderful response to customer feedback!! no apologies, no remedies!!!
other services seemed at par with the hotels of this category. quick response to requests placed at the reception especially with respect to help on arranging for cabs/ camel ride etc, though look out for heavy markup that the person levies on top of the package rates!
did not test their restaurant, but the breakfast menu was relatively limited and generally oily food...
overall, the restaurant served our purpose - we were basically looking for a place to rest after long hours of sight seeing - though the odour part in the bathrooms is something we did not like at all...
