After 4 flights and 2 missed connections, we finally arrived in Jaisalmer. Bhanu couldn't have been more helpful, giving us a room to freshen up and store our luggage before heading to our desert safari. We were attending a wedding and he even called his cousin to give my husband some traditional attire to wear which worked perfectly! He upgraded us to the honeymoon suite which was stunning, overlooking the whole of Jaisalmer from a centuries old balcony with decor that made you feel like you were truly Rajasthani maharaja.

Room tip: Ask for the honeyroom suite or a room with a balcony.

dear Ty Wit
So glad you apprecdiated my place! Truly an incredible set up thanks to this age old fort.
And not to mention the staff, Bhanu & Manish who are fantastic and so kind.
Well, as you know there are flights coming directly, maybe we will have the chance to see you back...?
Cheers

The hotel is located in the fort with beautiful views of the old city. We stayed at room no. 9 with a terrace in front of the room were breakfast is served. Banu and the rest of the team are superb. It is not a luxurious hotel so the hot water stream could have been stronger, but the atmosphere of the place and the hospitality of the team more than compensate for that

dear Sir

Thanks so much for your nice review of Killa Bhawan. It is a beautiful place indeed with a great staff! Sorry for the water pressure, being in the Fort makes it difficult to have decent water supply and pressure. I do not wish to build big and ugly water tower to preserve the Fort skyline, hence we have to make do with what we have. But as you rightfully said, it is a minor problem.
I hope you will visit us again, cheers

Our stay at Killa Bhawan was our favorite in 18 days touring Rajasthan. The hotels 8 rooms are unique and nook like with balconies, windowseats and nooks in all sorts of places. The staff is extremely helpful, warm and hospitable. The breakfast yummie and served on a terrace overlooking the town. It is nice to stay above the city overlooking the city absorbing the glow of the golden stones of which the city is built. A golden place in a golden city. Highly recommended.

The rooms were beautifully decorated in traditional Rajasthani style. The views from the terrace were amazing, making you feel like Jaisalmer Royalty. We had a lovely breakfast on the terrace overlooking the fort and the whole of Jaisalmer.

The staff were amazing and were there to help with anything and everything. We really enjoyed just hanging out on the terrace watching the Jaisalmer busy-ness from above.

Room tip: Do note the showers aren't the best as I think the water pressure in the fort isn't great

Incredible location inside the Fort, with stunning views of old Jaisalmer. Our room was beautiful, and so were the terrace and the rest of the property.

The best thing, however, is the service. We truly felt like Killa was our home in Jailsalmer, with everything we needed and much more. We were even able to leave our luggage there overnight while on a camel tour, and to use their facilities the next day before leaving the city.

Highly recommended: an oasis of peace in the middle of the busy and noisy Jaisalmer.
