The fairly priced Taj Gateway is an excellent choice for Jaisalmer. Excellent location. Great pool. Good food and very helpful staff. Specially 2N/3D package is good value for money. Even the tents and evening cultural program was very good.

The Gateway is flanked by larger haveli style hotels on either sides so from the main road you may even miss it. But then when did a Taj property need big signages?
