Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was the best hotel stay in our 2 weeks in Rajasthan. Incredible location in the old fort. The absolute perfect place to celebrate Holi as a family, very friendly and happy atmosphere. Also an amazing hotel to experience the living fort of Jaisalmer. Beautifully done out. Immaculate with such friendly staff. Fantastic breakfast with great coffee and chai. Mr Bhanu will welcome you to your home, and it honestly feels like it. Very special place and unique experience in India. Highly recommend for families, couples and any traveller wanting to experience genuine Rajasthani hospitality!

Warmest of hospitality, fabulous views, understated, arty interiors and taste of living inside India’s only living fort. Loved our stay at Killa Bhawan. Will definitely stay here again. Must try the traditional breakfast of kachori and dal pakwan. Bhanu ji is the perfect host.

When we arrived at Killa Bhawan, we have been so warmly welcomed by the owners and arrived on the main terrace for a welcome drink, we could not believe the sights. This hotel is located in the walls from the ancient fort and so doing overlooking the modern city and at the same time a fantastic view of the old palace. All the rooms are very comfortable and have been so nicely decorated. A perfect breakfast is served at your preferred time on your preferred one of the multiple terraces. This place is an absolute "must see & must stay". If we ever go back to Jaisalmer, no doubt we will stay again at Killa Bhawan.

Amazing experience. Excellent location. Mr. MANU, Mr. BHANU and Mr. MANISH were gems of the place. They always used to say "treat this as your home, not a hotel." They truly believe in what the say. The local food they make you try and the special chai they make, took my heart. Will surely visit again.

This place is wonderful! Everyone was so welcoming, attentive, friendly and very professional. I was very impressed by the level of service. The hotel is cozy and very clean. There are multiple terraces with the best views in town, where you can enjoy your breakfast every morning or a cup of tea in the afternoon or evening before bed. You cannot beat the location- right in the heart of the fort a few short meters away from great restaurants and sites. One of the best parts about this property is the history of the home. I will absolutely stay here again and would recommend to anyone. Thank you very much, and see you next time!

A gem of a hotel sequestered inside the magnificent sandstone fort, with astonishing views from a series of rooftop terraces. Bhanu and his cousin Manu are urbane hosts, always on hand to provide knowledge and insights. Where to go to a family jeweller (Mick Jagger’s choice), find the best textiles, recommended restaurants - Bhanu will advise. Rooms are beautifully decorated with textiles, handsome wooden bed frames & copper pots with good, well equipped bathrooms & thoughtful touches like the reusable copper bottles of filtered water showing a commitment to sustainability. Incredibly helpful staff will bring in the best lassi in town and there’s nothing in the world like having breakfast -toast & jam or Marsala omelette looking out over the havelis of town or across the glorious fort to where figures on the roof of the palace are silhouetted against the clear blue sky. They don’t know that guests at Killa Bhawan have the best possible spot in Jaisalmer.
