Great to stay inside the fort and wander around the old city. Intesting trips available to the desert. . Meet villagers, ride camels, sleep under the desert stars. .. Gafur and Hassan are wonderful hosts and take pleasure in showing you their city and making sure you are comfortable. Big rooms, comfy beds, great views.

The best thing about Desert Haveli is Hasam, the wonderful manager. He was so helpful & accommodating & possibly the nicest guy in India! Him & his sidekick Michael Jackson assisted us in exploring the area, booking onward travel & made great food recommendations.

Very small and charming 400-years-old Haveli within the walls of the old fort. Amazing views of the city below. Great food and comfy rooftop. Honest and friendly owner. We showed up last minute and that wasn't an issue.

I agree with all the positive reviews already written. Gafur is such a perfect host that he even removed a splinter from my thumb that I got in the desert! (Just a random example of how he goes the extra mile). Also We negotiated a good price so don't necessarily listen to the people saying it's more expensive.

Arriving just before midnight, Hasan was waiting for me at the train station and took me to the Haveli, located inside the fort, passing the 4 impressive gates.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
All time amazing opportunity to stay in the national monument/museum that is golden fort of Jaisalmer(main attraction of the Jaisalmer) ,specially for history-art loving tourists. This Fairy land building situated on south side of the rampart of the fort claimed to be more than 450 years old. It belongs to a divisional magistrate of state time from there and the current owner himself is the successor . The guest house has fabulous rooms and the building has been kept intact with original golden stone walls and full of characters acclaimed design. Its unique atmosphere makes it a great place to stay. The staff are all friendly and the roof-top restaurant provides not only good food but also acclaimed sweeping views of Jaisalmer's main attractions. The guest house provides access to other services including booking of bus and rail tickets. They have a long experience of desert(CAMEL) safaris and can do memorable-adventurous tours from one day to a week and beyond. many guide books and web sites have recommended very much highly for wonderful experiences - they have their own camel drivers who are experienced with tourists. Staying in the Desert Haveli is a relaxing experience for all age groups and offers a quiet heaven. This description is based on information provided by the hotel. ... more   less
