We stayed here after a long journey from Udaipur, arriving late.
The hotel is a little off the beaten track, but we were shown a very warm welcome in spite of the lateness of the hour.
The room was basic, and reasonably clean. There is a charming small courtyard around which the rooms are arranged. Its quite close to the railway line, so light sleepers may stuggle with the regular horn blaring that continues intermittently throughout the night,
Most impressive though was the quality of the hospitality we were shown throughout, which was the best we experienced on our trip, including some much more expensive properties. This included the owner rising in the middle of the night to see us off to the night train to Jaiselmer, which was really appreciated.
Its not the grandest of properties, and its a bit out on its own location-wise, but if you are looking for good care, and a great value stay, then this is hard to beat.
