Hotel Fort View
Ranked #55 of 114 Hotels in Jaisalmer
Reviewed 11 September 2017

Sadly we only stayed one night in Jaisalmer (25th August), but had we known we would have found such a great place we would have planned to stay more.

As always in India, how your stay goes depends entirely on your expectations. True, we reached Jaisalmer at the peak of low season, with very few tourists in town, but nonetheless Fort View exceeded our expectations:

- We stayed in one of the rooms with full view of the magnificent Jaisalmer Fort. As backpackers, this was by and large the best view we had in a month in India. The room was very large, pretty, and above all clean.

- One of the employees, Ali, was always at hand to give tips and help out. He also runs the restaurant at the last floor, which makes surprisingly good food (I highly recommend the haughty-sounding "Maharaja thali"), including some Rajasthani fare, and is a quiet place to unwind in the late evening while contemplating the Fort.

- The owner, Mr. Raju, also runs the very efficient travel agent on the ground floor, and was able to find us a very affordable and quick solution for our trip back to Mumbai.

- The only thing this hotel needs to work on (hence the 4/5 rating): the showers, which had slight problems in draining water while we were there.

All in all: highly, highly recommended for budget travellers :)

Room Tip: Bear in mind that, despite the name, not ALL rooms actually face the Fort, so you may want to specif...

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Fort View and had a wonderful time. They offered cheap (250 R) clean rooms and never pressured us to do a camel safari. The staff is very friendly! I would highly recommend.

Colorful hotel with good rooms. Bathroom is just fine, no washing sink in our room though. But overall decent enough and I especially liked all the different colors the room had. On the rooftop is a nice restaurant with a good view of the fort. Ali the cook is amazing, superfriendly and he makes you feel at home all the time. Very genuine and lovely people! We had a good stay there.

This place was excellent! We were greeted by the owner Ali, got a room immediately with stunning views of the Fort. The room was super cheap, just 500rps for 2 double bed room. And I have to mention Ali, he was such a fantastic guy, full engergy and happiness. I would definitely recommend staying here at Fortview. Its walking distance to everything in the city.
