We arrived to Jaisalmer during the peak of the local holidays fearing accommodation within our budget was going to be difficult to get, fortunately it wasn't the case. We were put in touch with the owner of Hotel Suraj located within the fort. Immediately we walked in, we knew we will have to stay an extra night in this monumental...

The location its magical, inside the old fort. The Maharajah suite its enormous and our stay in it felts like step back in time. there are few modern arrangements like fans necessary in the hot season ,doesn't need anything else modern that will spoil the ambience. The owners are very accommodating and helpful. I will definitely suggest this accommodation if...

This is one of the most authentic places we ever stayed at, with really local rooms as they were centuries ago. When have you ever had the opportunity to stay in the King's or Queen's room anywhere in the world? This is your opportunity. The staff is adorable and will go out of their way to make you happy.

We had a truly wonderful stay at this stunning old haveli inside the fort. The family were very helpful & kind to us. Our 5 year old loved climbing the stairs & peeking out all of the windows. I loved to think about the history passed, I loved the paintings & all the detail in the beautifully large suite. It...

We went there to spend 3 nights with friends and we came back alone to enjoy during 4 nights the magic Maharadjah room #1 ! The location is perfect, in the fort and close to the Jain temple.

This hotel is run by a brilliantly helpful and pleasant team. They got in touch with us as soon as we booked and proactively arranged a free pick-up from the station. They couldn't have been nicer to us during our stay. We booked the king and queen suite for the extra space and they were enormous. Yes, the place looks...

When we travel I really want to get the 'real' experience. This is about as real as it gets. This havali was once owned by a teacher to the Maharaja's family. It's over 500 years old and is still owned by descendants of its original inhabitant. This place is by no means a five star place. Two stars would be...

Run by an incredibly helpful and friendly family who are happy to tell you about the house and anything else you want to know about Jaisalmer. Basic in terms of furniture but clean and absolutely enchanting room (we felt like we were in Aladdin...) - a real piece of history that should really be in a museum. Good views from...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The land of Jaisalmer reminds you of the past days of maharajas and their havelis with fine architecture and eye catching facades. We are pleased to announce that our haveli is among one of them. Named after the founder of this haveli, Shree Suraj Karan G, our haveli is 500 years old converted into hotel being the 18th generation of same family who made this building. We can proudly say that we are among one of the hotels who started the trend of haveli style and homestay hotels. Running our haveli as a homestay from last 25 years we have received a lot of love and complements regarding our hotel. The main reason behind is that we haven't changed the main structure and antique theme of our rooms. Staying on ground floor we have converted upper floor rooms into hotel rooms with a bit of modern facilities so that the guests can get all the comfort enjoying the history of haveli. ... more   less
