We spent 2 nights here during the Holi festival. The location is absolutely stunning, nestling in the walls of the historic fort. The rooms are full of character, and there are a number of terraces and courtyards to sit in and enjoy the ambiance. It is a simple hotel but the WiFi is excellent, breakfasts very tasty ( one has to eat other meals out), and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. It isn’t for you if you want a modern block but it delivers the genuine Jaisalmer experience with great charm.

Clearly the best hotel in town. 8 lovely rooms in the citadelle with unique views on the city, rooftops, balconies and terraces, beautifully decorated. And of course a wonderful staff, including Bhanu, Manu and Luca. Our first stay here was 18 years back, it was even better 18 years after. Will be back (before 2038)!

We just visited Jaisalmer and happened to find this hotel through a YouTube video. It was everything we could have expected and more. After 8 hours of driving we arrived exhausted. Banu, Manu, and Manice as well as the rest of the staff went above and beyond to make us feel at home.

The hotel itself has so much character and is absolutely stunning. All the common areas are decorated beautifully with incredible city and fort views. The breakfast in the morning is perfect out on the terrace with coffee, omelettes, toast, etc.

They really made us feel like family here, and even after we checked out for a camel excursion, opened the hotel to us to refresh/shower, store luggage and grab drinks while we killed time for our flights.

This hotel really made our trip, can’t recommend it enough!!

Dear Jessica

Thanks so much for your very appreciative comment.
What incredible way to find us, YouTube !! I'm delighted....
And very glad you did appreciate the multiple "beauties" of Killa Bhawan.
It use to be my home, you know, in 1995 till 2000 and then became a small hotel.
I hope you will visit us again one day to enjoy Jaisalmer from the balconies !
Cheers

My friend and I enjoyed a lovely stay at Killa Bhawan! What a hidden gem amidst an ancient fort. Fantastic hospitality, delicious chai, friendly staff, and a fairy tale view of the fort/city. We took a taxi to the base of the fort. You aren't allowed to take taxis in the fort so we swtiched to a rickshaw. Then after the farthest point the rickshaw can take you we walked about 100 meters to Killa Bhawan. Everyone is friendly and helpful when you need to find something in Jaisalmer!! ASK!

Room tip: anything with a cool window seat!!
