We stayed in Room 37, which was huge, clean, and nicely decorated. There was a view of the fort from the window, too. A great value at 850rs/night. There was a beautiful rooftop terrace and cafe, too, also with a nice view of the fort.
As promised, we were picked up at the train station, right on time, and we're given tea and a bottle of water at check-in on the rooftop.
It's a good thing the room was so nice, because my husband and I both ended up getting sick and weren't really up for much sightseeing. Manu went above and beyond for us, since my husband was feeling so bad. He offered to take my husband to the hospital at no charge (luckily it didn't come to that), let us stay in the room for hours beyond normal checkout on our last day, and had us dropped off at the train station at no charge.
To be fair, there were a few things we weren't thrilled about, but they would stop us from recommending Pol Haveli or from staying there again ourselves. Here they are: The restaurant food was just ok and it took 70 mins to get our meal one evening after ordering, even though there was only one other couple dining at the time. We felt the owner and his brother pushed the camel/jeep safari a button hard. The Internet very rarely worked, though there were two free-to-use computers abvailable, which was nice. The hot water only worked once for us, but the weather was warm enough that it wasn't a big deal. The location was fine - about a fifteen minute walk to the fort. I highly recommend the restaurant Monica, close to the fort entrance - best food we had in Jaisalmer.
