My stay at the Gateway was very pleasant.The rooms are nice and clean.The hotel is just 2 mins from the station and 5mins from the old city.Its made very well too.Its great value for money and highly recommended.The pool area is very beautiful but since it was winter we couldnt use it.The breakfast was also a good spread with choices and prompt service.Its a big property and very well maintained.

The first night in Jasisalmer was spent at an old 'Palace' hotel - it was awful. So we moved to Gateway - which was brilliant, and cost only very slightly more. This is a modern clean, quiet single storey hotel, with a great distant view of the fort. The food was superb, and there was a beautiful pool area for meals or drinks. Unfortunately, there was no handrail for the tiled steps down to the dining/pool area - while we were there, we witnessed a guest take a nasty tumble. The room was really comfortable. The only minor detractions were an old style TV, and the lack of a safe in the room - safes were provided at reception.

The Gateway Rawalkot is a private property being managed by the Taj group. While it's understood that Gateway is the entry level brand ,there are still some glaring quality gaps that need to be addressed. I spent some time chatting with Devender Singh the operations manager and he courteously agrees. So expect improvements in future.

First , the location on a hillock is a great plus..get your cameras ready to catch the first morning rays glisten on the famous golden fort of jaisalmer. Service comes with a friendly smile. however the kitchen it seemed was not prepared to handle late meal requests for larger groups. The Swiss tents are nice but in winters be prepared to be happy with a basin that doesn't have hot water connections. Quality of tent furniture is average. We actually saw some small rats/mice visiting the tent...the staff however feigned surprise when told :)-

Overall despite drawbacks we enjoyed our 3 nights in the tent..kids would love it. For those who can't stay away from work the wi-fi is good. Do keep in mind that Jaisalmer probably doesn't yet have any other top hotel chain's presence . The are many private hotels though.

Room Tip: If you are finicky about hot and cold water in your basin don't opt for the tents in winter. Th...

Gateway Rawalkot is linked to Taj but don't expect the Quality of taj in service and rooms. I am frequent in staying at taj Hotels and one can esaily see the difference.

Location is fine outside the main city and and not very far from the city as well,highlight of the property is the swimming pool and open space around it. The worse is the eating place and it takes them hours to serve you. Quality of food is good but lack variety.

Front office is confused may be understaffed Hotel.Recommended for family and expect it just as another hotel then Taj property

Since I was informed that the Gateway chain is the more economical variant of the Taj group, we decided to book here ( we have stayed at several Taj properties in the past and been impressed with their service and rooms). This hotel is quite some distance from the fort but it has stunning views of the fort. The hotel itself is built using local materials and looks rather nice and authentic. We chose to stay in a room instead of a tent. It was nice and spacious and had a homely feel to it. We were welcomed late evening by a courteous staff and escorted to our rooms promptly. The food was served by the pool and we were entertained by a puppet show and then a folk dance. The food was strictly okay. Overall, we enjoyed our time here
