Hotel Rawalkot Jaisalmer
Ranked #23 of 108 Hotels in Jaisalmer
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 December 2011

We had planned a holiday in rajasthan, and based on some feedback, I booked a tent at the Gateway hotel rawalkot in Jaisalmer. In freezing temperatures, we stayed in a swiss tent. But to my surprise, I found this hotel so great and so much comfort, that I would recommend this hotel for any class of people. Great swiss tents with every facility possible, fantastic breakfast, beautiful swimming pool with a great view of the fort. And last but not the least, the puppet show in the evening was great too.

Of all the Taj hotels I have stayed (quite a few in fact), this one will make towards the end of priorities for sure. Everything is quite average, except the swimming pool and rooftop restaurant. The dinner around the pool or on roof with folk dances taking the fantastic Jaisalmer fort in background, definitely great. But problem lies in the rooms, very small and low, least ventilation and lots of mosquitos!

We stayed at this hotel in October 2011, just before Diwali. It is a very good property just next to Fort Rajwada. You can either stay in rooms in the sprawling campus or if you are more adventurous, you can opt to stay in the swiss tents in the adjoining campus. The hotel staff goes out of the way to make you comfortable. The manager of the hotel personally meets all guests and asks them to contact him directly in case any help is required (which was not required at all).

The best thing about this property is the haveli style architechture and the open courtyard style design. The swimming pool is beautiful, though a bit short for serious swimmers but great for kids and those who want to relax. The sunset view is great from the terrace. Breakfast is reasonable, but would have loved some south Indian options. You have the option of dining on the poolside and enjoy the view of the Golden Fort (though at quite a distance). The staff helps you with everything - including helping you chart out your itinerary for the day to make best possible use of time.

Rooms are clean, well lit and have all amenities that you would normally look for in a 4 star hotel. Bathrooms are also big with all basic amenities (including a fan!). However, if you are travelling with kids and need an extra bed, the room may feel a bit cramped.

You can play carrom (yes, I played carrom after many years with my kids and we really enjoyed a lot!) or chess or just relax on the jhula or grab a cup of tea and view the setting sun from the sprawling terrace. All in all, we loved the stay and would certainly recommend the hotel to families taking vacations.

Our stay during the Diwali holidays was very pleasant! Even in the rush of the Diwali crowd, the warmth was beyond expectations! The rooms were comfortable, but the food seemed to be targeting the western world, was bland, and lacked the punch. Overall, recommended for visitors....
