If you want to know a man claiming himself to be a Brahmin but actually a unscrupulous thief, then be sure that it is RAJA, the so called in charge of this Hotel, is the man befitting the definition. This scoundrel charged Rs 7000/- in advance, Rs 4000/- for a filthy camel ride, and a third rate indecent night show... More

The pattern to catch the 'prey' look similar. look at travelers boarding down from the train (preferably AC coaches) and offer them a free ride to the hotel (wherever you want to go). Cross - sell the safari and night stay in their hotel, top it up with a free drop back to the railway station - and you are... More

Like others on these reviews, I was approached on the train and was told about this extremely cheap hotel- I thought that it was amazing how cheap it was. I asked why and he told me that it is a new hotel so they are trying to promote their hotel. I am a 23 year old female who was traveling... More

I was travelling with my partner from Delhi to Jaisalmer on the train, we had a basic idea of where we wanted to stay when before the last stop a man came to our booth with his business card and suggested his hotel. He said it had A/C, was clean, had a swimming pool and 5 minutes walk from the... More

I can't believe I let my guard down here! After travelling for 4 months, I should have known better! This place is a filthy, disgusting dump with lying, cheating staff after one thing...

Never let your guard down in India, true. But we were tired, dirty and smelly after 6 weeks continuous travelling, and took the advice of the Samrat's supposed "sister hotel" in Jodhpur, Kuku, that this was a cheap, clean and welcoming place to stay. Sadly not. Within minutes of arriving, we were given the hard sell for camel safaris by... More
