Hotel Fifu
Ranked #9 of 106 Hotels in Jaisalmer
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 February 2012

Been many times in Fifu hotel, and hopefully will come again and again here. It is a place that is quiet friendly and gives you an homely atmosphere. A small boutique hotel, good rooms, I personally like the rooftop they have, good views of the fort.

It s a little outside the center of jaisalmer, but actually super for a stay in this wonderfull city !
The view from the terrace is simply breathtaking! We arrived after a long day of travelling just before sunset. The view on the rooftop is so fantastic. The rooms are super nice and the service is perect. Extra plus is the free wifi !!

If you go to jaisalmer (and you should) fifu is the place to say ...

Desert best? Yes, and not just because of the great rooms, good food and fantastic views.
Also because of the staff at this hotel, friendly and willing to assist in any way possible.
The owner, Fifu, is a "walking ecyclopedia", he has so much knowledge on Indian culture, religion and geography. Ask him and you get a better understanding of the country.
I visited Jaisalmer during several of my trips to Rajasthan, stayed in modern, western, and indian hotels and guesthouses. When I discovered Fifu's hotel it was clear that this was the best option!

Out of the 8 mid-range hotels I stayed at in India, this one provided the best service and the staff always went out of their way to help. Additionally, the rooms were quite lovely, complete with modern amenities and the hot water never ran out! The rooftop terrace was a major bonus with a great view of the fort which is only 10 minutes away. I liked that the hotel is located outside the fort—away from the most commercial areas where tourists are hassled most. The most gracious staff were also kind enough to provide transportation whenever I liked. I was really impressed by the decor of the room I was given though it turns out they had placed me in the wrong room. When they very politely moved me to the deluxe room, I was stoked to find it was double the size with an attached living room and balcony—what a steal!

We stayed two nights in January 2012 and really enjoyed every minute of being there.
The rooms were well appointed, reasonable size and very good to relax in. The roof top gave spectacular views of the fort throughout the day and night and the food was superb. We really appreciated and enjoyed the welcoming company of Fifu, and his staff each day. We also appreciated Fifu's special support when we had a problem with our driver. He gave considerable time and effort to getting the matter fixed as quickly as possible. Thanks Fifu!
