We couldn't rate this hotel more highly. We loved the character and location of the hotel set within the fort and overlooking the rest of the fort and the city. Bhanu and his team provide a wonderful, friendly, personal service both before and during your stay, always on hand to help with anything, whether that be a safari in the desert, a meal from a local restaurant served on the beautiful terrace or anything else. A special mention also for Sambu and Sodha the safari team who took us on a desert camel ride and arranged a camp dinner and night under the stars for our family, which proved an unforgettable experience, Jaisalmer is a lovely accessible city and Khilla Bhawan makes you feel completely relaxed and at home.

I, Dr. Subrata Dey stayed with my family (wife, daughter, in laws) in Killa Bhawan....september 2022, It was breathtaking and even now gives goosebumps...to think and feel that those were the very rooms which the royalty would have been using during the long history of Sonar kella....those who prefer resorts and swanky star rated hotels are not only wasting their money but also will never go back home with the experience that they can cherish forever. When you sit in the morning and the evenings atop one of the bastions of the fort and view the whole jaisalmer city...have your breakfast or dinner in candlelight....it takes you back to those days...if you r lover of historical legacy then stay here and no other...if you want artificial luxury then this is not for you. The Killa Bhwan also gives you luxurious royal beds and furnitures in your rooms...a royal treatment from the Manager Mr. Bhanu and his brother Manish..supported by all weather caretaker Shambhu ....they can also make your day by making you dress up in Rajasthani dresses and relive the history as you can see from my pic....overall its the best experience of all in my travels around the world and stay in several heritage properties.

We made a trip to Jaisalmer in August. The weather was fantastic and it felt like I had landed into an exotic dreamlike place that felt like home. The manager Mr Bhanu is by far the most hospitable host I have encountered. He constantly checked on the on and before the day of our arrival. We had booked both the Killa Bhavan and the KB Lodge (which is in the city). Both are absolutely exquisite properties. Killa Bhavan is inside the fort and the view from here is breathtaking to say the least. Mr Bhanu treated us with the most delish Dal Pakwan and Kachoris. The staff there are incredible. The hotel has all kinds of services available- whether you need a guide to show you around the fort or whether you wanted to book the jungle safari. For this hotel alone, I want to make weekend trips to Jaisalmer again because this is a stay we can't get over. Kudos to the team!

My partner and I recently stayed in KB hotel. It was the best experience we ever had in India. The hotel is in a fort with a breathtakingly beautiful view. The owners of the hotel, especially Mr Bhawan, was extremely kind and helpful to us. KB hotel feels like your home! I will definitely return and recommend all travelers to Jaiselmer to stay in this once in a lifetime experience heritage site hotel!

Killa Bhawan is a beautiful place to stay, in an amazing location within the fort of Jaisalmer. We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 nights there, including an amazing night sleeping out on the sand dunes of the Thar desert (also organised by Killa Bhawan). The owner and his team leader were extremely helpful, not only during our stay in Jaisalmer but they also recommended us places to stay in other cities in Rajasthan, and organised road transport for us between all these cities & towns. They were also very helpful in other recommendations in the Jaisalmer area. Overall a great experience and highly recommended!

We had the most spectacular stay at Killa Bhawan! The room and location were really beautiful - perched high above the town in the fort, we felt welcomed and looked after as though we were staying with friends. Breakfast, housekeeping and the hotel’s facilities were all immaculate, this really is an amazing place to stay in Jaisalmer. Bhanu organised everything for us from the moment we arrived in town - his recommendations for the heritage walk, village tour and desert experience were spot on, we loved it all. I would highly recommend anyone thinking of visiting Jaisalmer to do it and to stay here, it is a fabulous, unique, luxury experience. Thank you Bhanu! We will definitely be back.

Think Jaisalmer and images of the magnificent golden sandstone fort standing like a proud sentinel come to mind. And , If you want to truly “experience “ life and history in the “ living fort “ Killa Bhavan is a perfect choice . Beautifully appointed and maintained rooms in this boutique heritage hotel within the premises of the fort with magnificent views guarantees an unforgettable stay . The decor and hospitality is traditional Rajasthani and lives up to the spirit of “ Atitthi Devo bhava ‘“ Bhanuji , Manish the hosts at the hotel ensure that your every little requirement is attended to . A special bonus is the amazing sunrise views . The hotel doesn’t have its own kitchen or restaurant but all meals and snacks and beverages as per choice are procured swiftly and made available. It maybe noted that this hotel permits only vegetarian fare , conforming with cultural practice within the fort as per tradition. Non vegetarian fare is available at nearby places should one desire . The hygiene of the premises and cordiality of the staff is excellent. It would be nice if they had a kitchen for some food availability right on the premises because otherwise you have to plan ahead . Other than that it’s definitely a place to stay and enjoy the hospitality of a bygone era in the erstwhile desert kingdom . Definite thumbs up 👍🏼

Hello and thanks so much for your positive review. You have grasped and enjoyed all the best that Killa Bhawan can offer, specially the kindness of the people managing it. I do get your point about food & and bigger kitchen. Be assured that I'm working on the expansion of the hotel in order to have a proper and large kitchen able to propose all kind of meals. Please do come back to check it out ! It might take a little time though...... Cheers
