Hidden in a narrow street next to a fantastic Jain temple, this 16th century haveli makes you feel like a "maharaja" in the heart of the Jaisalmer fort. The service was absolutely excellent, with Gokul and his father making us feel at home.

Staff and management both very nice and always helpful. Good WiFi, comfortable matraces, rooftop restaurant. But best thing is the authentic ancient building. They tried to alterate as little as necessary, so it has plenty of flair. For everybody who likes to sleep in a room that gives the impression of having travelled back in time, this is the place...

Basically two room choices: small suite and large suite. Both types are excellent. We had one night in each type and recommend both for comfort and facilities. Hotel managers Gokul (the father) and Harshan (the son) go out of their way to ensure your stay is enjoyable and accommodated numerous small requests we made of them. Highly recommended for service,...

Hotel Suraj is the best choice if you'd like to stay in a historic Haveli inside Jaisalmer Fort. There's various other places with similar names, but you'll have to go for the original. The house was built in 1526 A.D. and the rooms are kept in the original style. Except for your comfortable bed (much better than in many other...

We arrived to Jaisalmer during the peak of the local holidays fearing accommodation within our budget was going to be difficult to get, fortunately it wasn't the case. We were put in touch with the owner of Hotel Suraj located within the fort. Immediately we walked in, we knew we will have to stay an extra night in this monumental...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The land of Jaisalmer reminds you of the past days of maharajas and their havelis with fine architecture and eye catching facades. We are pleased to announce that our haveli is among one of them. Named after the founder of this haveli, Shree Suraj Karan G, our haveli is 500 years old converted into hotel being the 18th generation of same family who made this building. We can proudly say that we are among one of the hotels who started the trend of haveli style and homestay hotels. Running our haveli as a homestay from last 25 years we have received a lot of love and complements regarding our hotel. The main reason behind is that we haven't changed the main structure and antique theme of our rooms. Staying on ground floor we have converted upper floor rooms into hotel rooms with a bit of modern facilities so that the guests can get all the comfort enjoying the history of haveli. ... more   less
