We'd booked The Gulaal as a bit of a treat after doing camel tracking and having had a hectic run-up to Jaisalmer - and it really delivered. From the moment we stepped into the place, we were treated like royalty; the service was incredible. The place itself is also quite amazing - with lots of character and a fantastic view... More

Our stay at The Gulaal was the highlight of our two weeks in Rajasthan. It's a superb hotel that can truly call itself 'boutique'. The rooftop restaurant is wonderful for a romantic dinner with views of the fort. Our room was the best we had in India with all mod cons and a great view of the fort from our... More

The room was very spacious, beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. The bathroom was very large and modern. The rooftop bar (where we also had dinner both nights) had a wonderful view of the Fort. The... More

It's value for money. Excellent room quality and great service. Rooftop restaurant adds charm to it. Food quality and taste is good. Staff is quite cooperative. It's little off the main road. But can be easily reached.

During the last Dusehra break, we visited Jaisalmer for the first time and planned to stay at the Gulaal. There is a perception that in Jaisalmer that Suryagarh is the most sort after hotel. Suryagarh was fully booked for our days of visit due to a wedding. We thus booked The Gulaal that again had excellent reviews on Tripadvisor, which... More

Spent an evening here with the family and had a great time. The hotel looks sumptuous and the rooftop restaurant was the best we found in Jaisalmer. We all ate very well and my daughter really enjoyed it. Would highly recommend.

The Gulaal was exceptional. The décor, the ambiance and the pool area were wonderful. The owner was available at all times and the staff were extremely helpful. The rooms were gorgeous and clean. We had a wonderful view of the old fort from our room. The roof top restaurant was great as well. Would highly recommend this hotel..
