Last year in Decmeber, my family of five visited the mesmerizing Jaisalmer. Our visit wouldn't have been complete without the experience of staying inside the Fort at Killa Bhavan. Killa Bhavan became a home away from home thanks to the wonderful hospitality and caring attitude of Bhanu Ji. The rooms were exotic and designed to reflect the glory of the culture. The place is best for spending a few days with family , alone or even work (from home) Having breakfast in the balcony while watching the sun soaked golden fort was a sight we can never forget. I highly recommend Killa Bhavan and would love to come back here again.

❗If you are reading this review, book this stay- it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience of living within a fairytale. I hjghly recommend for couples, families, and solo travelers alike. ✅ Incredible historical property, well-renovated and furnished ✅ Friendly and helpful hospitality throughout stay ✅ Experience the insider culture and lifestyle of Asia's oldest "Living Fort" ❎ It is literally a centuries old structure, so need to be a little understanding of water issues etc. which is out of the host' control. They will.help you through anything though. Our host Banu and the entire team took utmost care of my family and I during the days we stayed with them while visiting from the US. Being locals with knowledge of insider activities, they recommend perfect excursions. The property is a lovely, quaint stay which is beautifully decorated. As the photos will show, it feels like a dream. Breakfast was incredible each day, and we are still thinking about the many hot cups of chai we drank overlooking Jaisalmer from our room windows. Note that you are staying within a structure that is centuries old so you need to be understanding of the hot water situation. We never found it to be an issue. Thank you, looking forwarding to visiting again!

Well, well, well. Where do I even begin to describe this hotel? Everything about this place was just perfect. Housed inside the ONLY living fort in India, this hotel is already a notch above the others for its amazing location. After all, where else would you get to stay in an 850-year-old fortress where 3000 people still live? I went to Hotel Killa Bhawan with my family and stayed there for 3 nights and by the time our stay was over, a part of me considered the hotel as a home away from home. Daily breakfasts on the terrace with sweeping views of the golden city and the palace were made even more special with Bhanuji and Manishji's very friendly company. They made sure that we felt at home from the very first minute. The views from the rooms and the three terraces are SO GOOD that you might as well spend the entire day sitting there. And if you're planning to work remotely, the view while working is oh-so-friggin'-good. Speaking about the furnishings and decor, the hotel is decorated so tastefully with its modern-meets-traditional look. From a cozy library/sitting area to the rooms, each with a different color theme, this is THE PLACE to be in Jaisalmer. Highly, highly recommended.

Room Tip: Every room here is great. But if you want one with the highest balcony, choose the honeymoon suite.

I stayed at this breath taking place for my honeymoon in the honeymoon suites. It is right out of a Disney movie. I recommend because 1. You live inside a real fort with real history. 2. Jaisalmer is a small town and this fort itself is the main attraction. 3. We didn't want to be restricted to a night desert safari as it is toooo cold. Here we got the option of a flexible safari any time we wanted and it has a butler service for everything! 4. Authentic rajasthani food is surprising hard to find in Jaisalmer but here Bhanu ji and Many ji , the managers immediately recognised our interest in exploring unique cuisines and made sure we tried something new everyday in our complementary breakfast! 5- excellent view but don't see photos before you go, I guarantee it'll surprise you. 6- the room has an experience balcony, perfect to drink wine in! I really prefer this place over the other hotel like experiences. This was the real royal experience. Tip- book in advance to get the honeymoon suites. You must see it.

Spent one night in a deluxe heritage room at the start of a trip through Rajasthan. The hotel is within, and seemingly part of, the fort’s walls, with a maze of passages leading to private patios and balconies overlooking the fort and old town below. The morning view was stunning from the patio outside our room, perched high above the noises and activity of the town. The room itself had stone walls, quirky nooks, and small windows typical of the region and surrounding architecture. Two distinct areas left plenty of room for our group of three. Beds were comfy and bathroom adequate. The space heater was a bit clunky but kept us warm as the night got chilly. Breakfast (eggs, toast, fruit, juices, and tea/coffee) was brought to us on the terrace and more of everything offered several times. A perfect start to a day of exploring. The manager was friendly and helpful, as were the entire staff. Upon arrival we were escorted up through the fort’s gates to the hotel, which would have been tricky to find on our own, and hotel staff on motor bikes carried our luggage up the winding streets to meet us. Very easy and hospitable. This is a small hotel that takes care of its visitors individually. It was fun finding new intimate places throughout the property. We would very gladly return, as the town itself was fantastic as well.
