          Avoid at all costs. Overpriced and poor quality.

          We really didn't like this place. It's like a mirage in the desert, from the outside and far away it looks awesome. But once you delve beneath the surface, it really is bad. Particular gripes we had (and we are not fussy travellers at all!)

          - Over priced tour for 3100 Rupees which involved one driver who could not speak English driving us around and not actually guiding us.

          - Food was bad and not cheap. We ordered muesli and yoghurt, and we got rice crispies and cornflakes with gone off yoghurt.

          - staff are very predatory when it comes to money. They are always looking to push to get that extra tip, always talking about being underpaid. When you tip and it's not enough, we literally had our driver who was very lazy spitting at us from behind. Like nothing we have experienced in India.

          - check out time is...wait for it...9am!? So if you want to get up, maybe head upstairs for an overpriced breakfast on what is a nice balcony, you get harassed by the manager to vacate the rooms.

          As I said, this place on the face of it looks good. But we would never recommend it to anyone in the future...they have learnt how to try and play tourists, and gosh do they do it well.

          Friendly staff that make you feel like you've been staying there for weeks! High standard of rooms, and options to suit different budgets. Enjoyed the camel safari through the hotel, although it was more expensive than most other places.

          A good hotel in a good location - good service and food - and cheaply priced too

          Shahi Palace is a good place to stay when in Jaisalmer as it is conveniently situated outside the fort but only a 5-10 minute walk away from the fort gate. They collected us from the station upon arrival and also done the same when we left. The room we had was quite small but nicely decorated with traditional Rajasthani trinkets and very colourful.
          The rooftop restaurant is a highlight of the hotel, not only does it have the most fantastic view of the fort, the food is also very good. The butter chicken the best I have ever tasted! They also serve alcohol if you fancy a drink after a hot day exploring Jaisalmer. The waiters service was good too.
          If I ever go back to Jaisalmer I wouldn't hesitate about booking up a room in Shahi Palace again.

          I guess we were just not lucky. The shower was used as a toilet (disgusting), one aircon broke down. They gave us a new room so that's okay. In the early mornng there was some noise from the rooftop terrace because of the constant moving of the furniture. But the rooms are comfortable and well furnished.

          The best thing about Indians is how much they LOVE to chat!! About anything...politics, family, cricket, you name it and they will chat about it! Honestly, anything, they just love to talk. It's such a cute thing to see two strangers board a train and by the end of it be the best of friends. It's very different to home where people actively avoid …
