Narayan Niwas Palace, the only classified heritage hotel in the heart of the golden city Jaisalmer, stands tall as the "Flagship" of the hospitality industry.This nineteenth century ancestral property was restored and converted into a hotel in 1982. It's golden sandstone structures and intricate carvings are a tribute to the talent of the master craftsmen of the bygone era.A royal welcome awaits you on arrival, to be escorted to one of our 50 air conditioned rooms each bearing testimony to the ethnic grandeur and beauty of Rajasthan.Our restaurants and bars serve in style Indian, Chinese, Continental and Rajasthani cuisine coupled with the choicest wines, spirits and cocktails.As the sun rises from and sets into the desert with the "Golden Fort" of Jaisalmer in the background, our roof top restaurant & bar offer the most spectacular sight of the Thar desert. Our all weather indoor swimming pool or bawri is one of it's kind. A gymnasium and sauna add to the charm. We pioneered the desert safaris way back in the seventies with the eleven-day camel safari from Bikaner to Jaisalmer. Our tailor made excursions with camel & jeep safaris as well as camps are still an exotic desert adventure.At “twilight" the fort lights up, adding to your soaring spirits to make it all the more awesome. Our master artistes, widely known for their excellence in dance and local folk music, will make you endorse our claim that it is the best that Jaisalmer has to offer.

We were two families visiting as part of the Rajasthan tour. It iwas in the last week of December'19. Surprisingly the hotel staff gave us rooms in the old wing, very run down, wife got shock in the water from the geyser, stench in rooms, no proper wi fi . When we looked around we saw that the hotel were putting up foreign tourist in the new wing which had better appointed rooms with modern amenities. Utterly dissapointed due to the inhospitable behaviour of the Hotel management and total apathy towards the guest needs. STRONGLY RECOMMENDED TO BE BEST AVOIDED.

The property itself looks impressive with traditional stone work all over, The rooms unfortunately are poorly maintained. Plug points hanging, tap loose, corners dirty. Breakfast was basic but sufficient. But table-clothes were last washed when the Brits still ruled India.

Best host. Lovely location, clean rooms but phones don’t work so if u need anything and are staying on 3rd floor u might as well forget about it. Hot water was irregular possibly because the hotel was full when we went. Staff was averagely responsive.

Stayed here in Dec 2019. we were 4 adults and 2 kids. the hotel itself by the looks is good.. you get a wow feeling and then all the disappointment starts. 1. Check in - was ok. 2. Rooms - poorly maintained. bed lenins were old, torn and with stains. 3. Bathroom - no hot water and it was stinking of drainage. when we asked them to change the room the other guests told that thier bathrooms were also stinking very badly. So finally ended up with Bathroom freshner. 4. Food - we had dinner here & Dining area , tables, the table cloths were not washed for eternity i guess. it had all the stains possible. the worst was the servers. there were only 3 people and they were the cook, server and dish washer. and they were sooo untidy. they looked like they had not bathed for years. 5. Morning b/f - the most horrible one. they just had bread, jam, Poha and omlette. the cutlery was not washed and all the guest were re using the same cutlery to pick the Jam. coffee and tea spoons were all messed up. i mean just yaaaks to experience this in the morning. cleaniness was something this hotel had not seen or heard about for years. we went with great expectation and surely it was killed. i heard from locals that this used to be one of the best hotels , but then the owners keep leasing this property and hence the reputations is gone. Please dont book your stay here & waste money. i dont think they really want business.

Inspite of paying a handsome amount and booking the hotel for 3 nights, it was a pathetic experience. The staff was extremely unprofessional and the rooms were shabby and very poorly furnished. The pipes in the washrooms were leaking and they're wasn't even an intercom, no provision of hot water even during peak winters. I regret booking the hotel big time

We just stayed one night at this old hotel/tradingpost. On the bright side, it has a charming atmosphere and there is a fantastic view from the top terrasse On the down side, it is very laud and noisy. Wild dogs kept us up at night and the staff not all that helpful in general The rooms a bit old, the tv didnt work. The hotel itself is in the center of the city but at least 10 min walk from the old castle I have mized feelings bur all in all i could recommend especially because of the atmosphere

Our agent in India won a prize for this one! After a succession of pretty ghastly hotels, he sent us here! We were supposed to stay two nights, we lasted 20 minutes. The 20 minutes spent busily searching for somewhere else to stay! Somewhere clean! Somewhere welcoming! When we arrived, the staff eventually found, they sat us down in a filthy lobby area on stained synthetic satin cushions and asked us to wait as the manager was eating his lunch. Eventually, after much asking, we were shown around the vast empty hotel to a room smaller than most of the bathrooms we’d so far seen in India. The bed was unchanged with a ripped bedspread and grease stained pillows, the electrics were dangerous looking. Instead of the Fort view we were promised, there was no window. We moved on pdq...
