Highly recommended. The hotel itself is very good, in a good location. The food is amazing! Some of the best curries I've ever eaten. The hospitality we received was second to none. A must for all travellers to Jaisalmer.

I cannot recommend this hotel enough. It is close to the fort, with beautiful views from the roof top restaurant and the staff are very very helpful.

Room was very spacious and clean, although hot water was only available in the mornings. Staff were very helpful, they arranged to have a tour guide meet us at our next destination. The food was excellent, as was the rooftop restaurant overlooking the fort. We enjoyed our stay here.
