Stop your search - you do not need to stay anywhere else but this place. Bhanu runs this place so well with his team and will go out of his way to make you feel welcomed, safe, prepared and at home. He will make sure you get what you need, can navigate your way around the city, and can book things for you such as Camel Safari or airport taxi. The rooms are exquisite, like you are traveling back in time. Delicious food is available which you can enjoy on the roof as you watch the daily life of Jaisalmer go by. Bathrooms are clean, beds are comfortable - I almost didn't feel a need to explore Jaisalmer because the whole vicinity of Killa Bhawan itself felt like its own adventure and story. Thank you so much for a fantastic time!

Room tip: The corner room on the roof deck was excellent. You have your own window seat above the whole city!

Beautiful place to stay inside fort area with the privilege to enjoy the city view.
The open roof area is a nice place to soak in the winter sun and relish breakfast with hot tea
Rooms are well maintained with heritage style furniture. Mr. Bhanu, owner and his brother, guided us for the places of interests and were happy to assist to our queries. Good property to stay for couples, small family.

We thoroughly enjoyed this unique homestay in the middle of the Jaisalmer Fort, Sonar Killa... breathtaking views and experience of living inside the only living fort in the world! Delicious, homely breakfast; warm, chatty and hospitable staff (they do everything to make it feel like home!), gorgeous views and so easy to cover all of Jaisalmer by foot! This one’s a must visit!

Hello
Thanks so much for your kind review. Killa Bhawan is truly a gem nested in the fort of a magnificent city.
I'm glad you enjoyed it so much and that our staff treated you well, I'm so lucky to have them!
You seems to live quite near (Jaipur) so I would be delighted to see you again at Killa Bhawan.
Presently in France, I will soon come back.
thanks again, cheers

Stayed here on our tenth anniversary trip across rajasthan. I fall short of words to express how great our stay here was. The hotel is located inside the fort which in itself is a great experience and it has the best view of the city below. Add to it the amazing hospitality by the staff, they make you feel so welcomed and like family. The saying "atithi devo bhava" is what the staff of this hotel believes in. Special mention to Mr Nikhil who treated us like his own family and made us feel so welcomed and comfortable. He was always ready to help with a smile.
The breakfast was absolutely lip smacking authentic rajasthani food!!! Rooms are comfortable and done up in heritage style and one does get a feeling of royalty when staying here.

The hotel also arranged a desert camp stay for us with Mr Padam who turned out to be an amazing human being! We would recommend you to ask for him specially if you are keen on the desert camp!

Jaisalmer is called the golden city... After our stay here , would like to conclude by saying , jaisalmer is the golden city and its people truly have hearts of gold!!!

Thank you to all the staff of killa bhawan for making our stay here so memorable and making us believe in humanity again!!! Would like to thank Mr Sunil again for his amazing hospitality!!! Keep up the great work!!! We will be revisiting you for sure!

A place where Heritage meets Luxury !!
We had a remarkable stay in Killa Bhawan during our time here in Jaisalmer. The property is probably the best in the fort, with a mesmerizing view of the city and the palace. We stayed in the suite room and we found it the right choice we made. We were picked up from the airport and were coordinated well in advance.

The hotel is well managed by Mr. Bhanu, Manish & Manu Maharaj. We enjoyed best in-class hospitality and the breakfast was awesome too. They also helped us with arrangements for sightseeing and recommending places to eat. We found that the prices were reasonable. All the services and communication had a personal touch. The room and entire property is great.

Couple of points to note:
1. Cars are not allowed inside the fort, so your luggage will be transferred separately (the transfer was flawless and completely managed by the hotel).

2. As the hotel is inside the fort, it does not have an elevator. But that will not be a problem.

3. The hotel does not have television and intercom facility, which we didn't miss at all.

Furthermore, I want to emphasize very kind and professional staff who helped us a lot. It is very safe and right in the center of everything within the fort. City Palace is just 2mins walk. I would recommend Killa Bhawan to everyone.
