The rooms are quite large and there is hot water (although you have to turn on the switch about 5 minutes before you want the water) in the shower. Outside there's a nice pool and upstairs there is a rooftop restaurant which serves good food (not bland like many other hotels catering for tourists) at a fairly reasonable price.
The hotel is outside the fort but very close, an easy walk and they give you a local map. I went on the hotel's camel trek for one night and really enjoyed it, I met some great people also taking part and the trek itself was in a part of the desert which was not crowded. You really felt like it was peaceful. You had the option to sleep out in the desert or in a 'hut' near toilets etc, I chose the former and although basic it was great to sleep under the stars. You also got water, dinner, breakfast and lots of blankets. Coming back to the hotel after the trek we were given a room to shower/refresh in for a couple of hours before getting a train at no extra cost.
One negative the wifi is not free (100 rupees for 24 hours) and a bit inconsistent.
