We had a truly wonderful stay at this stunning old haveli inside the fort. The family were very helpful & kind to us. Our 5 year old loved climbing the stairs & peeking out all of the windows. I loved to think about the history passed, I loved the paintings & all the detail in the beautifully large suite. It...

We went there to spend 3 nights with friends and we came back alone to enjoy during 4 nights the magic Maharadjah room #1 ! The location is perfect, in the fort and close to the Jain temple. The rooms are very clean and the wifi very good. The view from the roof top is amazing and the owners, Gokul...

This hotel is run by a brilliantly helpful and pleasant team. They got in touch with us as soon as we booked and proactively arranged a free pick-up from the station. They couldn't have been nicer to us during our stay. We booked the king and queen suite for the extra space and they were enormous. Yes, the place looks...

When we travel I really want to get the 'real' experience. This is about as real as it gets. This havali was once owned by a teacher to the Maharaja's family. It's over 500 years old and is still owned by descendants of its original inhabitant. This place is by no means a five star place. Two stars would be...

Run by an incredibly helpful and friendly family who are happy to tell you about the house and anything else you want to know about Jaisalmer. Basic in terms of furniture but clean and absolutely enchanting room (we felt like we were in Aladdin...) - a real piece of history that should really be in a museum. Good views from...

This hotel gives you a feeling of the past, it is spacious and clean. The hotel staff is friendly and accommodating. I feel that if you do stay in the fort then spread your wings and go further afield outside the fort to experience more than the tourist bubble. There was far less pressure from the shop keepers outside the...

First of all: this Haveli is inside the fort. I know Lonely Planet says not to stay inside the fort because of conservation issues, but the Haveli owners (who live in the havelis as well) say that's not true. Even the woman who leads the conservation project in Jaisalmer is involved in restoring these inner hotels as well: it's all...

Hotel Suraj (Suraj Haveli) is probably the most picturesque hotel you'll find, particularly at this price (~$40/night). Right in the Jaisalmer fort, behind the Jain temples, this 1526 house has been in the same family since construction, and it was the residence of the teacher of the maharaj (at least according to three generations that you'll find taking care of...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The land of Jaisalmer reminds you of the past days of maharajas and their havelis with fine architecture and eye catching facades. We are pleased to announce that our haveli is among one of them. Named after the founder of this haveli, Shree Suraj Karan G, our haveli is 500 years old converted into hotel being the 18th generation of same family who made this building. We can proudly say that we are among one of the hotels who started the trend of haveli style and homestay hotels. Running our haveli as a homestay from last 25 years we have received a lot of love and complements regarding our hotel. The main reason behind is that we haven't changed the main structure and antique theme of our rooms. Staying on ground floor we have converted upper floor rooms into hotel rooms with a bit of modern facilities so that the guests can get all the comfort enjoying the history of haveli. ... more   less
