Garh Jaisal

Rajasthan & the North

Rating: Simple    

Garh Jaisal overview

Built into the golden walls of Jaisalmer Fort, enjoying fabulous views over the city of Jaisalmer and the Thar Desert, Garh Jaisal is a fascinating place to stay. There are just seven rooms, each within the thick sandstone walls with a window seat providing unforgettable views. The rooms are small and simply decorated, but feature en-suite bathrooms, air-conditioning and ceiling fans. Service here is relaxed and friendly, and the rooftop terrace provides an ideal spot to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy the hospitality.

Isabel Lledo (25/10/2011)

"Good location, very friendly staff, amazing roof terrace. Small, basic bathroom."

Geoffrey Furber (20/12/2010)
"Good location, but could be much better with a little more care to detail. The staff were young men who were keen and helpful, but it did feel a bit of a come down from the Rawla Narlai which we had left the day before. The hotel felt more like a budget hotel, but we thoroughly enjoyed the experience and Jaisalmer."
Paul Doe (03/11/2010)
"Superb modern hotel with outstanding young staff (a novelty in India). Very romantic and night time views are sensational"
