Excellent hotel, lovely people A review of Hotel Shahi Palace
This hotel is absolutely gorgeous. Made out of sandstone and decorated with taste, this hotel has a fantastic roof terrace with a view of the citadel city. I preferred staying outside of the citadel because it's less crowded and noisy (It is about 5 minutes walk to the entrance).
The brothers there are extremely friendly and will take pains in helping you with whatever request you might have. They will even give you a bed to sleep on if you arrive by the 5AM train from Jodhpur, and they have also offered us a free taxi pick up from the station. Really good after a rough trip!
Only slightly negative point I would mention is food: service is slow and prices are steep for Jaisalmer. But that is definitely a minor point as this hotel was the best hotel I've stayed during my trip to Rajasthan in November 05.
