“Not bad for the money, no good food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

This place was ok for what we paid. The service was the typical rubbish, and they were not impressed that we did not eat at their restaurant. The food is pretty lousy, this was even more true because the food in the rest of the town was fantastic.

It is a good location because its not in the centre, but its not really a long drive to the city centre.

The pool was nice, but the girls did not want to swim because there is a construction site looking in, which was fair enough considering India. There was no hot water in the rooms...

If you want to explore the city and the fort and not stay indoors or except a royal pampering, then this could be a good choice. Mahadev palace is an average hotel with all the basic amenities and good Indian food (only Veg). Don't expect to have a swim in the pool, I doubt if they cleaned it since its inauguration, note** I said it has all the basic amenities to make you feel comfortable to have a good night sleep for a fresh morning. The staff are local, humble and little lost, make sure you bolt your doors from inside as they might barge in anytime without knocking. Gadisar lake is beautiful, try lal maans just opposite to Rajasthan Handlooms, you would never forget the taste and don't forget to appreciate the traditional puppet show, it is a nice change from these days cartoons or animations and the determination of a local school teacher who is struggling to keep this going without any help from the government. The fort is huge and beautiful, frilled with local shopkeepers and curious foreign tourists. Again a place which needs a serious attention from the public and the government to restore these spectacular architecture and history. This is where the famous Satyajit Ray's 'Shonar Kella' was filmed. An early morning trip to Tanaut mata mandir and the India-Pakistan border to meet the Jawans is worth the hassel.

This hotel is of average standard. It is too far away from the fort and we couldn't really swim in the pool as there were lots of men from the construction site staring at us...

An economy hotel. May be a better choice if you have financial constraints or if you want to compromise with your comfort. Service and housekeeping are very poor. Breakfast rating ( generally it is complimentary ) is in negative. Not a place to stay if you are travelling with your family. Your family will never forgive you for the discomfort.

Room Tip: Not much to choose. View on both sides is same.

Traditionally and beautifully built in carved sandstone, like most buildings in Jaisalmer, this hotel has a nice spot for relaxing near the pool and big, relatively clean rooms. The restaurant is not impressive but it's good value, The location is not the best but since the city is very small, all the sites are still walking distance from it. Laundry service is good. Recommended.
