This nice and cute hotel has got an amazing window view of the city. The guy who serve us the food was so nice helping us to decide the dishes. They close at 10pm. The food was nice and not so expensive for the view that you can have.

We stayed here for two nights and organised our camel desert safari through Padam at Surya guest house. We loved it there, the rooms are individually decorated and as with anywhere; the people make a place. The staff would go above and beyond to help make our trip to Jaisalmer special. Would stay here again most definitely.

Surya is a small guesthouse perched on the side of Jaisalmer Fort. Padam is the most accommodating and helpful host. He and his team are ever willing to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Padam can assist with all travel requests including desert tours. The room we stayed in had a great view of the town below. The common...
