Arrived on the morning coach from Udaipur and were met which was very useful as we were pretty mangled by the journey. The view from the roof terrace is magnificent. Suraj is one of three consecutive hotels each with its own roof terrace facing back to the east. The view is spectacular. We opted for the cheaper room with a...

This is up on the fort! The views are stunning as from any guest house up on the Fort! The staff is super friendly and service they provided in restaurant is excellent. Hot water available and a good hippie vibe to this place! Watching sunset and sunrise from up here was simply amazing! The room was not what it looked...

Stayed at this place as a solo female and Aska was super accommodating and helped me with so much. He let me store my backpack there while I went to an overnight safari (booked with another travel agency even though the hotel actually can book it for you). It is inside the fort so very convenient. They pick you up...

This is our second stay in Surja - the last being four years ago on our first trip to India. We are an older coupler who like a range of different Hotels - but love Surja and would really recommend a stay. Our train was delayed - arriving at 2am. Our worries about the Tuk Tuk having gone home were...

We stumbled on Surja Guest House when chatting to Raj in town. He gave us a lift on his bike up to the hotel and we were so impressed we booked it on the spot. It made an ideal spot to recover for a couple of days after spending the previous two weeks driving an auto-rickshaw over 3,000 kilometers up...

Nice hotel with an incredible view on the city and the inside of the fort. Definitely a good place to observe the sunrise. There are different rooms some have a view on the city with a small balcony and others have a view on the small place in front of the hotel where locals are just hanging out. Landlord has...

Having been recommended this hotel when I was in Jodhpur, I was happy to see a waiting sign at Jaislamer station and I was soon in the jeep being taken to the hotel which is located in the fort. On arrival, I did not have booking and was lucky they had one room left. A small wait for the room...

We had an incredible time in Jaisalmer at the Surja Hotel. We stayed 2 nights in addition to an overnight camel\desert safari organized by Surja as well. The location is perfect, the view from the rooftop restaurant is the best in town, the food is delicious (unlike most budget backpackers\hotels), our room was clean and comfortable, and the staff was...

スタッフさんはみんな優しくて、「○○って出来る?」って聞いたことはだいたい「OKできるよ」って答えてくれるのでインドを旅するには大切な柔軟性が持ちやすかった。 ジャイサルメールにいく際はまた泊まりにいきます。 that's so nice hostel!! All staff is kind to me and flexible. I'll stay there when I visit again.
