The place am describing is a haveli converted to hotel rooms.The rooms symbolisies ancient india & gives you a refreshing feeling of peace & silence.It is located inside the fort,next to fascinating Jain Derasar(temple).The Hotel roof provides the eyeshot view of jaisalmer.The tour to Khuri dunes was well planned by chimmy which provides you a blend of desert,camel ride,Rajasthani folk dancing,singing & food under roof of open sky surrounded by tents to rest.The local crowd was ready to help in all aspects. I enjoyed it thoroughly with my pals & was an enriching experience for me.

We had the Maharani room for couple nights and it was a unbelivable experience. The owner is very conversable and of great nature. Our room was almost an other-wordly experience, like staying in another century. from our room we looked right at the sunset and temple tops. All in all highly recommandable. The owner serve breakfast we also recommend the Restaurant which serves fantastic vegetarian dishes and has the nicest cook we ever met.
A complete package Hotel for a Average travellers.

Best Haveli Hotel, I will return back for this New Year

The Maharaja room is just fantastic. Located on the north side of the building, it is cool and fresh and is also very quiet at night. It's something like 60 Squre meters, with columns and frescos all over. Incredible. Bed is new, soft mattress and soft pillow: perfect for sleeping. Definitely worth the whole travel to jaisalmer to sleep one night in this room. Not all rooms are yet equal though, so, in summer, the higher rooms may be a bit warm, although still as they were 500 years ago.
I will be returning back there for my new year celebration. I have reserved it already.

A German saying is:
"Best way of travelling is : to feel."
Nowhere else in India I had and still have such a deep feeling of peace, silence, freedom and love as during my stay in Hotel Suraj above the roofs of Jaisalmer. An extraordinary sense for beauty, tradition and hospitality of Chimmy and his family makes you feel like coming home and always wishing to come back...

A Place Out Of World

The 500 year old room was luxurious and exotic; it almost felt like I was staying in a museum. I had my own private roof, right next to the fascinating Jain temple complex, as well as views of the great Thar desert. The location was in the heart of the old Fort; nothing was more than a five to ten minute walk. The staff were some of the most helpful, informative and engaging people I have met in my travels, and the Safari that Chimmy set me up with was exceptional- there was NO tourist traps near these dunes, just me and some camels, AND there was music and Rajasthani folk dancing. As an experienced budget traveller, I'd say it was my top hotel/hostel experience.

It was such a nice place. To stay with, located within the old city and the staff was so kind and friendly that i can not think to get these people in India, there villge tour was a view to India a real non touristice countryside, Gypsie people saw in the trek were unbeleavable.
Our room was around 500 years old with the lovely view and paintings in it.
It is really a place to recommand and I hope I can come back here one day

A Place with lots of character. I liked our room balcony from where we could see the sunset. It is a real HAVELI situated in the old city. This is the best palce to see stone carving work in Jaisalmer.
Also arranged a half day sunset tour to desert and really enjoyed there non touristic route.
Although there were no hassle for this.
Clean rooms, great views, gentle staff what else a tourist need.

Dear Travellers, I am Simon from Canada. Last January and February, I was in India and travelled around Rajasthan and Punjab and Stayed in beautiful hotel, but the best of my choice was the Hotel in Jaisalmer “hotel Suraj" . An amazing 500 years old haveli and great staff specially Chimmy. I recommend to all the peoples to stay in this Haveli only

Top Local Tips for Jaisalmer

PIck Up PLase if you book this place then as i did you also mail Chimmy your arrival time so that he can arrange you a free pick up from the train station so that you can come to the Hotel directly (without facing touts and commision agents on the way)

A Nice Haveli Hotel PLease make reservation prior to your arrival.

It is cold PLease take plenty of warm clothes between december and January
