It 's the place where I was better! The property is very well Rajasthan is expected to see ..... The rooms are quaint, it seems to go back in time, well maintained and clean, with a private bathroom with hot water. The staff is helpful, friendly and welcoming, especially the restaurant OTARO. Where in a moment you feel at home,...

The service was absolutely perfect here. Until we refused to take the incredibly overpriced desert safari tour. After we chose not to pay the price of the commission of booking the trip with desert boys - we were given no hot water for the duration of our stay. And no one was interested in sorting this out. The place was...

I stayed 2 nights at the Desert Boys Guest House. I found the hotel to be very relaxed and comfortable. The guesthouse is located within the fort and I could not really imagine going all the way to Jaisalmer and not staying within the fort - it is really all there is in Jaisalmer. People within the fort easily pointed...

Our stay in Desert Boys was one of the highlights of our trip to India. Beautiful haveli with great rooms and very comfortable beds. Worth the trek to get there with luggage, staying inside the fort was a great experience. Restaurant had good breakfast en coffee. Their egg curry was the best I had in India.
