Well, well, well. Where do I even begin to describe this hotel?

Everything about this place was just perfect. Housed inside the ONLY living fort in India, this hotel is already a notch above the others for its amazing location.

After all, where else would you get to stay in an 850-year-old fortress where 3000 people still live?

I went to Hotel Killa Bhawan with my family and stayed there for 3 nights and by the time our stay was over, a part of me considered the hotel as a home away from home.

Daily breakfasts on the terrace with sweeping views of the golden city and the palace were made even more special with Bhanuji and Manishji's very friendly company. They made sure that we felt at home from the very first minute.

The views from the rooms and the three terraces are SO GOOD that you might as well spend the entire day sitting there. And if you're planning to work remotely, the view while working is oh-so-friggin'-good.

Speaking about the furnishings and decor, the hotel is decorated so tastefully with its modern-meets-traditional look. From a cozy library/sitting area to the rooms, each with a different color theme, this is THE PLACE to be in Jaisalmer.

Highly, highly recommended.

Room tip: Every room here is great. But if you want one with the highest balcony, choose the honeymoon suite.

I stayed at this breath taking place for my honeymoon in the honeymoon suites. It is right out of a Disney movie. I recommend because 1. You live inside a real fort with real history. 2. Jaisalmer is a small town and this fort itself is the main attraction. 3. We didn't want to be restricted to a night desert safari as it is toooo cold. Here we got the option of a flexible safari any time we wanted and it has a butler service for everything! 4. Authentic rajasthani food is surprising hard to find in Jaisalmer but here Bhanu ji and Many ji , the managers immediately recognised our interest in exploring unique cuisines and made sure we tried something new everyday in our complementary breakfast! 5- excellent view but don't see photos before you go, I guarantee it'll surprise you. 6- the room has an experience balcony, perfect to drink wine in! I really prefer this place over the other hotel like experiences. This was the real royal experience. Tip- book in advance to get the honeymoon suites. You must see it.

Spent one night in a deluxe heritage room at the start of a trip through Rajasthan. The hotel is within, and seemingly part of, the fort’s walls, with a maze of passages leading to private patios and balconies overlooking the fort and old town below. The morning view was stunning from the patio outside our room, perched high above the noises and activity of the town. The room itself had stone walls, quirky nooks, and small windows typical of the region and surrounding architecture. Two distinct areas left plenty of room for our group of three. Beds were comfy and bathroom adequate. The space heater was a bit clunky but kept us warm as the night got chilly. Breakfast (eggs, toast, fruit, juices, and tea/coffee) was brought to us on the terrace and more of everything offered several times. A perfect start to a day of exploring. The manager was friendly and helpful, as were the entire staff. Upon arrival we were escorted up through the fort’s gates to the hotel, which would have been tricky to find on our own, and hotel staff on motor bikes carried our luggage up the winding streets to meet us. Very easy and hospitable. This is a small hotel that takes care of its visitors individually. It was fun finding new intimate places throughout the property. We would very gladly return, as the town itself was fantastic as well.

Me and my family(8 people + 1 child) had an awesome stay here. BhanuJi made sure we had a wonderful stay and we loved his hospitality.

Right from getting down at Jaisalmer at Airport to getting back to the airport after completing our stay, he made sure everything was smooth.

Sit down with him and plan our your itinerary.

Do make sure you check out the KB Cafe's lip smacking food. KB Cafe is owned and operated by Killa Bhawan management only.

Killa Bhavan was a unique experience. It is within the fort and perched at a height from which you can see the entire city. It is a beautiful sight and the weather in December was brilliant. The people are very friendly and they treat you like family.

They went out of their way to make us comfortable. We were checking out early and Manish ji specially went early in the morning to get us fresh kachoris to take home with us.

The close ness here to the fort and old Jaisalmer is a bonus as you can just walk around and explore the place. No need for a car.

Worth a visit for the view alone.
