The location is unbeatable - inside the fort, with fabulous views. All the local sights are within walking distance, as are great restaurants. The hotel only has a few rooms, all different, but very nicely decorated with local fabrics and artifacts. The rooftop terrace is a fantastic spot for breakfast, sunset or a late night drink under starry skies. The...

I wish I had read more of the reviews...and not just the positive ones, before booking a room here. I agree with what much of the other "terrible" reviewers have said.  I will also add that I found the owners to be very unaccomodating. I ended up having to shorten my stay by one night, and the owner was not...

mukeshkila, Owner at Hotel Garh Jaisal Haveli, responded to this review

We only allow refunds for cancellations when we are notified one month before. We believe this is a fair policy which is exercised by most hotels around India. Furthermore, this customer made the booking through an online travel agent, so any issues with cancellation and refunds should rightfully be brought up with the agent. It seems unreasonable to demand a...

My girlfriend and I booked a room at Garh Jaisal on recommendation from a close friend who stayed here a few months back. We are extremely happy for that reco because this was our favorite stay in India hands down, and definitely one of the top 5 we have experienced on a global scale. Sounds like a big title to...

We stayed at Garh Jaisal for 4 nights in March and simply loved the experience that we had. Jaisalmer Fort is a really interesting place to explore, but the experience of staying in the Fort itself, and enjoying the stunning rooftop terrace that they have, is second to none. We spent much of our four days up there and were...

I returned to Garh Jaisal after a couple of years to find it pretty much unchanged. I had a great time again and still highly recommend this hotel. The one addition has been a beautiful gazebo added to the rooftop which provides a bit of shade and fanned cooling on those hot sunny days. The rooftop patio and gazebo are...

This little boutique hotel inside the old fort is one of my most favorite hotels in the entire world! My best friend and I only planned on staying 2 nights and ended up extending our stay to 5 nights. We could have easily stayed well over a week. The guys that run the hotel, Puri and Mukesh became close friends...

This great little hotel with a wonderful location on top of the Jaisalmer Fort was our base for photographing the second and final Transit of Venus possibly visible in my life!!! This was my second trip to Jaisalmer for the Transit of Venus which we had also seen from Jaisalmer in 2004. The hotel had a lovely spot on the...

Loved this place set in the walls of the fort - great views, friendly service. Fast response, arranged the pick-up and transport from station to the hotel door. Would happily arrange tours but relaxed if you want to do it on your own (which you can easily as Jaiselmer is small). Good breakfast (eggs and toast) - we had such...

We were warmly welcomed at the crack of dawn upon arrival at 6AM. The staff made sure we were comfortable and gave us blankets in case we wanted to have a quick snooze while waiting for our room to be ready. The room was amazing. Great view from our balcony, over the whole of Jaisalmer. A high level of service...
