We shared our stay with a film crew making what seemed to be a fairly standard Bollywood costume drama. Bit of fun and I'm sure we got more in their way than they did in ours. Fantastic room, resturant on the roof with very helpful staff, all in all a good place to stay. Reception was a bit quirky with the diary version of our booking not matching with the computer but the guys on the desk sorted it with good grace. Bang next to the marketplace, wonderful old building, great staff - well worth a visit.
Beautiful property which is turned into a hotel and the residence of current royal family in one part. Beautiful architecture gives you a sense of history and a beautiful view of the fort very well located walking distance from city center and the fort. Very friendly staff and helpful. Happy to show you around and make you meet the royal family ( Grand mother ) Worth a place to spend a couple of days while in Jaisalmer.
I had been to Jaisalmer last month and stay for 3 Nights. It's amazing stay. Environment, View, Staff and personal care surprised us in the the heart of the City. Charm of haveli is still mentain and excess to the market as well as fort is just walkable. Love to visit again and recomend this place to other people to stay and spend some time with the Royal family of the JAISALMER. Our Trip was planned by KD3 Hospitality.
Hotel Nachana Haveli is an old haveli converted into a hotel and there is some charm in that. The rooms however were cramped. They have a restaurant on the terrace. Mid-way there is a washroom beside the stairs, and the entire stairs reek of urine due to this. The a la carte food was ok-ish. The breakfast included in the package was disappointing with just couple of items - paratha, poha, sandwich and tea. There is no option to engage kids except for a table tennis table. During exit, the staff saw us struggling to load luggage on our car but would not offer help, which was quite bad hospitality. We paid Rs 7k per night which seems quite steep given the state of property and lack of facilities.
This place was highly recommended to us but i found the place very run down. The location is undoubtedly very good as you can walk to the fort and market etc. The room we got Gulab Mahal was badly furnished and plaster was peeling. Fan was not working so we were forced to use AC. The bathroom was also stinking a bit as it had no ventilation. No phone in the room so you need to personally go to the front desk all the time of you need anything. The boys who were providing service were excellent!
Had been to Nachana Havelli @ Jaisalmer twice Last time was Oct 2021 and it was a very good experience as always. The Havelli is at the central location of Jaisalmer and just by the side of the Fort our very own Sonar Kella ( Golden Fort ). Very near to it is the market place and the famous Bhang Shop...the only registered and Govt approved Bhang Shop in India. The Havelli will give you the real feel of the Rajasthan Royals. You can yourself taste the feeling of becoming a Royal here. The rooms are beautiful with all the required facilities. The Havelli is a treat to all guests staying there and at the night time it's just fabulous with the Havelli getting lit up. There is a roof top restaurant which serves tasty food and has a great view of the Fort ( Bengali's very own SONAR KELLA ) and the Mandir Palace. The property belongs to the Royals of Jaisalmer and Rajaji..Hukum Vikram Singh Bhatti personally takes care of the property and his guests. On both my visits he had been very kind enough and humble to personally interact with me. Finally I must mention the name of the person who is in charge of the property Mr Chandan Shandilya ...with time and repeated visits I now share a very good relationship with him. He is an extremely helpful person and is always taking a good care of his guests. This time in October Chandanji made sure that our stay becomes extremely comfortable and enjoyable.…
We booked this on Airbnb and I guess it comes with its own plus points; since we also get to interact with the hosts who are the Royal family of Jaisalmer. We stayed in the Sultan Mahal which is the largest room and perhaps a 'suite' of sorts which was surreal in every aspect. Lovely food at the rooftop restaurant; and the staff was more than helpful to accommodate our requests. We were extremely comfortable here ; and just what we needed to relax and take a walk in the narrow lanes of the city and explore the sights and sounds of the great city.
The haveli is atmospheric and beautiful with gorgeous artifacts strewn all over the place and a nice rooftop with a lovely view of the fort. The only thing which irked us is the staff member (Ashu Singh) who informed us that since we needed 3 beds, he has upgraded us to a suite. I got suspicious and looked up the website and saw we were actually given the gulab mahal which is the lesser expensive of the rooms (all the rooms had a basic seating area so it was nothing special). I recognized the gulab mahal from the paintings on the walls! We didn't even ask for an upgrade and perfectly happy with the room assigned but the staff member got me suspicious with all his over friendly reassurances. He was also quite inefficient, we asked for an extra pillow and a bottle of water which didn't arrive for a couple of hours after which I made another trip to the reception. Hope feedback will be given to the staff member. We had a comfortable stay overall but do be aware that this haveli is located right in the middle of a crowded market place with no parking available. So if you are looking to walk to the fort a few times during your stay, this is the place for you but otherwise I would have chosen a quieter spot.…
The location of Nachana Haveli is good. Walking distance to most of the tourist spots. However wasn't impressed by the upkeep of this property. No windows gives a claustrophobic feeling. Artifacts are great but dusty. The food served is great along with the service.
I wish I could write word to word our experience here but I wouldn't want to think about our stay here ever again - attaching images to warn people choosing this place to help them understand what they will be expecting if they do book. I cannot post more than 10 photos on this review- I hope it gives you a idea of what you should be expecting. 1. Mattresses that dont fit the bed 2. Broken lamps 3. Water seepage on the walls and ceilings 4. No handles on the doors 5. No exhaust fan in the washrooms 6. Absolutely filthy bed spreads 7. No heater provided 8. No space around the bed to walk 9. Stained upholstery 10. Broken bed
