On a (very) quiet back street only 200 meters from the Fort, 'Hotel Fort Side' offers clean and comfortable rooms with 2 or 3 beds and also a dorm room with 2 double bunks. A/C rooms are also available although I can guarantee no-one would need A/C in Jaisalmer until late April at least. Kamal and Angle along with Ali prepare great (village) home style meals and are most hospitable. There are no TV's in the rooms but the 24 hour Wifi reception on each floor is exceptional.

Booked for the good price but would recommend for the great service. The room was very clean and bathroom a good size. The hotel is located in a quiet street near the fort and has spectacular views of the fort and desert, especially from the rooftop. Most of all Kamal is very welcoming without being pushy, offering to book camal safaris but not insisting. Oh and the beds are really comfy and ac and water heaters new! Kamal also gave us a really helpful message before we arrived which helped when getting off the train.
