Service is very slow, poor housekeeping and rooms are not good. Think before you book. Keep it is as your last option. This is a heritage property but not maintained properly. Overall experience is very poor.

I have never written a bad review. I understand "you get what you pay for" and have a little distaste for those who criticise budget hotels for not providing shampoo and body wash etc. However, this place gave me the creeps from the moment I walked into myroom. For example, the toilet wasn't attached properly to the floor (despite attempts...

I travelled to Jaisalmer recently and my one point agenda was to explore the Royalty & Heritage. When I came to know about this hotel as the only Heritage Property in town, I was excited to discover the Hotel as a Heritage Site. My trip got more spiced up with the stories of Mr. Dushyant (owner)and had a wonderful time...

The room was very dirty, old, the shower didn't work, it seems they desperately need a renovation. It only looks nice in the outside but then you see the reality. I will not recommended at all staying here! Horrible experience.

This was a nightmare for us. The rooms were dirty , no tv. Seemed like we are the only people who stay. The restaurant utensils had a layer of Jaisalmer ki mitti which I doubt has not been cleaned since ages. You will have a shock looking at the menu with a plate of chicken biryani @ 800 Rs. Come...

The property is so beautiful but totally unkempt and mismanaged. It was almost as though it was painful for them to have guests. The staff was skeletal and could not do much. It looked like they were temporary and hired only for the season time. There was no proper management. The cleanliness levels were pathetic. It was dusty and dirty....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Narayan Niwas Palace, the only classified heritage hotel in the heart of the golden city Jaisalmer, stands tall as the "Flagship" of the hospitality industry.This nineteenth century ancestral property was restored and converted into a hotel in 1982. It's golden sandstone structures and intricate carvings are a tribute to the talent of the master craftsmen of the bygone era.A royal welcome awaits you on arrival, to be escorted to one of our 50 air conditioned rooms each bearing testimony to the ethnic grandeur and beauty of Rajasthan.Our restaurants and bars serve in style Indian, Chinese, Continental and Rajasthani cuisine coupled with the choicest wines, spirits and cocktails.As the sun rises from and sets into the desert with the "Golden Fort" of Jaisalmer in the background, our roof top restaurant & bar offer the most spectacular sight of the Thar desert. Our all weather indoor swimming pool or bawri is one of it's kind. A gymnasium and sauna add to the charm. We pioneered the desert safaris way back in the seventies with the eleven-day camel safari from Bikaner to Jaisalmer. Our tailor made excursions with camel & jeep safaris as well as camps are still an exotic desert adventure.At “twilight" the fort lights up, adding to your soaring spirits to make it all the more awesome. Our master artistes, widely known for their excellence in dance and local folk music, will make you endorse our claim that it is the best that Jaisalmer has to offer. ... more   less
