The moment I entered into Narayan Niwas, i forgot the fatigue of a 12 hour journey...What arrested my mind was the Classic Architecture & peace around it...Just felt as if i am in some other era...The courteous staff was more than happy to take me around the hotel & tell the historic importance of the place...i was not at all...

I have known this hotel for the past 18 years and have seen it changed. Finally after a lot of efforts they have improved the room standard somewhat and the whole unit looks OK. The problem is the staff....they do not have professional staff and when you sit down to take breakfast....one person is running up and down and getting...

We booked 3 AC rooms and paid the premium these rooms carry. If you ever ask hotels like this one why they charge so much extra for AC rooms, they will tell you it is because of the additional electricity the AC units use. Makes sense. However, we stayed in the rooms for January 5th, 2014 when temperatures were a...

The hotel looks great from the outside and the public areas are strongly aesthetic. However, my room (a renovated one) was noisy, the loo didn't flush and the hot water very unreliable (in the case of my room, non existent). The breakfast was pretty disgusting, with nuclear jam and no decent coffee. My stay wasn't helped by the fact that...

The location of the hotel is no doubt the best. But I totally disagree with their statement of "flagship of hospitality". We took four deluxe rooms. As per the manager these deluxe rooms were newly built. But even these rooms have many a problems. One, they have moist walls (probably due to some internal leakage in the bathrooms). Two, some...

I stayed in Double Deluxe room. Compared to cost, there are very average facilities in room. Lousy room, old and average furniture, no TV, Hot water wasn't available for me when required. Food is extremely costly, staff is very cold. Building is good and peaceful but rest all is pathetic. In all, it was bad experience.

We came to this hotel after a long day and after seeing a few bad hotels. They showed us a lousy room and asked for a lot of money. When we said we are leaving the price dropped by half. We stayed and we are sorry. Everything in this hotel is very poor except the building which is really nice.

Well one of the very old hotels of Jaisalmer converted from a palace, liked the open space, very different kind of swimming pool, almost every night we had cultural events one night dinner was arranged at the sam sand dunes, camel rides altogether a very different experience. Visited with the members of my motorcycle club, Gun Riders Motorcycle Club(GRMC).

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Narayan Niwas Palace, the only classified heritage hotel in the heart of the golden city Jaisalmer, stands tall as the "Flagship" of the hospitality industry.This nineteenth century ancestral property was restored and converted into a hotel in 1982. It's golden sandstone structures and intricate carvings are a tribute to the talent of the master craftsmen of the bygone era.A royal welcome awaits you on arrival, to be escorted to one of our 50 air conditioned rooms each bearing testimony to the ethnic grandeur and beauty of Rajasthan.Our restaurants and bars serve in style Indian, Chinese, Continental and Rajasthani cuisine coupled with the choicest wines, spirits and cocktails.As the sun rises from and sets into the desert with the "Golden Fort" of Jaisalmer in the background, our roof top restaurant & bar offer the most spectacular sight of the Thar desert. Our all weather indoor swimming pool or bawri is one of it's kind. A gymnasium and sauna add to the charm. We pioneered the desert safaris way back in the seventies with the eleven-day camel safari from Bikaner to Jaisalmer. Our tailor made excursions with camel & jeep safaris as well as camps are still an exotic desert adventure.At “twilight" the fort lights up, adding to your soaring spirits to make it all the more awesome. Our master artistes, widely known for their excellence in dance and local folk music, will make you endorse our claim that it is the best that Jaisalmer has to offer. ... more   less
