We are an Australian family who travel a lot and stay in many different types of accommodation but I have to say that this property is absolutely magnificent and we are thrilled to have had the opportunity to stay here. Our room had a queen bedroom with decorative carved windows looking out from the fort walls over the ancient city and also a single bed in a very large adjoining space which also had fridge, kettle etc. This was ideal for our family.
This Haveli is 450 years old and is housed within a fort with parts that date back 1200 year. The intricate carvings, archers and features of this Haveli are breathtaking, staying here is an absolutely unique experience.
The owner is very welcoming and is always on hand to answer any questions and offer advise on history, sightseeing and restaurants etc. There is no pressure to sell you anything and he is absolutely committed to ensuring you have the best possible stay in Jaisalmer. We felt very safe and well cared for during our stay.
The fort and ancient city of Jaisalmer are a travelers heaven but to really understand this part if the world you need to head out into the Thar desert. The hotel arranged a camel safari for us and it was fabulous. We were picked up at the Haveli in a Jeep and enroute visited temples, shrines and villages before saddling up on the camels and heading into the dunes. We rode the camels for 90 minutes and then set up a base in the dunes where the guide lit a fire and cooked us a beautiful meal while we watched the sunset and then the moon rise and light up the desert, an amazing experience. It was very remote and there was absolutely nobody else there, there was not even foot prints in the sand, incredible.
Highly recommended!

Excellent location. Inside the fort premises, and very near the famous Jain Temples.
The parking is at the Fort parking area, and the staff cater to meeting you at the parking and helping with transporting the luggage to the guest house.
The rooms are decorated very nicely and provide a near authentic experience of the Fort life in Jaisalmer.
Special thanks to Mr. Dushyant Vyas and Fote Khan for making our stay very comfortable.

I visit this property in 16 November 2021. Which is really excellent. Rooms are very cleaned and providing all the facilities in inside rooms (hair drier, Bath kit etc.)
Mr. Dushyant Vyas is very cooperative good person. He will suggest each and every thing about Jaisalmer and desert safari as well as It's good property if you are going with baby or child. They will provide each and every thing for baby also given a kitchen access where you can make some food for baby. Dinner is very authentic. Overall we enjoyed a lot.

i will suggest only this property. It is a gorgeous fort hotel with a wonderful view. The room was clean and stocked up with products. The staff were very friendly as well as extremely helpful.

Thank you so much Dushyant Ji !!

We will visit again.

The hotel building is 460 years old and is located inside a 1000 year old fort. It is, without doubt, the best place to stay in Jaisalmer. They have built a few new havelis inside the fort and at least 20 new hotels outside but The Desert Haveli Guest house is the real thing.
We recommend an airport transfer so that the hotel can meet you and help you find your way inside the fort. Our room was fantastic with great views of Jaisalmer and the desert beyond. The breakfast was cooked to order on the roof. We also had several other meals there as the food was so good. They also serve beer even though it is not on the menu. You need to leave your keys when you go out and ask them to clean the room.
The owner, Dhusyanth, was always around. He was charming and we really enjoyed talking to him.
You must stay here if you visit Jaisalmer. Why would you want to stay anywhere else?

We had a wonderful stay, thanks to the excellent customer service given by the host. He and the staff always greeted us smiling.
The room and bathroom were comfortable, clean and smelled very nice. We were given a room with a great view outside the fort.
We had a departure train very early in the morning and we were not charge extra cost for late check out the previous night.
The host was very friendly and help us organising tours. He also offers desert camping in a non-tourist way and less commercial than the rest of the travel agencies.
He even thought ahead and organise the logistic for pickup and drop off at the hotel.
We highly recommend this place.

Our third time staying at this excellent guest house. One of our favourite places in India.
It is a spectacular and interesting place.
The rooms are characterful, clean, with comfortable mattresses and amazing views out of the actual fort walls.
The rooftop terrace is a great place to chill out and try some delicious Rajasthani and Indian food. The Indian breakfasts were also delicious.
But best of all are the staff. Dushyant and Prem are fantastic hosts. Friendly, always willing to help you with any questions or special requests and most of all 100% trustworthy. We feel like family here.
After we had left they called to let me know that my elderly father left his wallet there and Dushyant soon made arrangements to have it delivered to Jodhpur the next day.
Of course we will return for another stay soon.

A unique experience to stay intra-muros. The Desert Haveli Guest House is charming with beautiful decorations. The manager and the staff were very pleasant and did their best to make our stay comfortable. We stayed only 1 night and that was fine. I would not see myself staying there too long because of the narrowness of the entire place. An area of improvement would be the bathroom which offers hardly any comfort. The accommodation appeared clean and we have no reason to complain, but I understand that cleanliness will always be a challenge in such an old premise, and I would recommend that management always put focus on this.

Felt like Aladdin. Really amazing views and experience. Staff was so helpful. I booked it on the way there while on a train and they met me at the station, picked me up and took me right to the hotel with no extra charge. Rooms were nice as well. Dropped me off at the bus station on the way out. Fun to hang with staff in the off moments.

The stay at Desert Haveli, left us a warm memory that we can say it is a home and family, where true India hospitality is experienced. Our excitement started by entering the Golden Fort and his team was waiting to guide us through the narrow streets of Jaisalmer. The windy narrow streets were surrounded by local shops, the temple, the newstands. After a few right and left turns, we entered Desert Haveli. Just as described, it is a place where time has stopped.
I felt the historic scent and touch, the open light well, the stones, the decor..The stair The different heights of stair steps brought a fun journey up to our room. We booked a room, that is located at the edge of the fort that shows a wide view of Jaisalmer. Dushyant greeted us Chai and helped us arrange an overnight safari tour, local tour and transportation back to airport.

I have booked my tour directly with host Dushyant for myself & daughter and he has booked everything for me including my transfers from Jodhpur- Jaisalmer- Jodhpur , Longewala India pak border & also Pal Rajah tent Resort in desert.

Desert Haveli is inside the fort & view from rooms & terrace is mesmerising, especially Sunrise & Sunset. Rooms are small but gives complete feel of old haveli and even beds are very comfortable. Being located on fort everything is very close by and on walking distance. Me & my daughter was felt safe even while roaming fort in night.

Food was also good & Dushyant & all staffs were very welcoming.

I highly recommend Desert Haveli to everyone who don’t just want to visit Jaisalmer but also wants to experience Jaisalmer, their culture & hospitality.

Truly “Padharo Mhare Desh” 😊🙏🏻
