“Loved, loved, loved this hotel!”
Sep 27, 2009
A fellow traveler recommended the Royale Jaisalmer to us and we never regretted the decision to stay. The room was beautiful, the rooftop restaurant had an amazing view of the fort (and the food was very good!) and my kids loved the pool. Owners Harish and Artie could not have been nicer. They treated us like family. Our kids played together and they even invited to their home for dinner. No request was too large or too small-they even saw us off to our train when it was time to leave. We stayed for 4 nights and it was hands down one of the best places to stay in all of Rajasthan. It was conveniently located, lovingly decorated and fairly priced, with a great staff. Can't say enough about it-if you are going to Jaisalmer, don't waste your time going anywhere else.

We have just been back from our trip to Jaisalmer and we really had a good time exploring Jaisalmer. Its a bit too hot during this time of the year but evenings & mornings are a good time to venture out for sight seeing. We enjoyed the visit to the desert dunes and the camel ride. Enroute we visited a Jain Temple which seemed really out of the world for its exquisite carvings.But the best and unexpected part was the treatment we got at the hotel.....ROYAL !! The hotel is run by a lovely couple, Harish & Aarti, they made us feel at home,even took my wife shopping for goodies!We are really planning to come back again in November when the climate is excellent and what more we can also try out their spanking new Swimming pool. But what makes us really come back is their hospitality, the finest in the world !!
“Beyond every expectation.”

I arrived on my own in India (Delhi Airport) on 16th April, collected my luggage then promptly broke my left foot. A few days seeking medical attention in Delhi before making my journey to Jaislmer. My Australian friend introduced me to Harish & Aarti the owners of The Royale Jaislmer. Harish & Aarti soon became like family, nothing was too difficult for them and they were so kind and generous of spirit. Staff were discreet and attentive as well as friendly and happy. I believe them to be extremely fortunate to be included into the family. Staff were treated with kindness, dignity and respect, the younger ones living in the family home and attended lessons plus attending to daily choirs. Certainly not disadvantaged!!.
My room on the ground floor was very comfortable, air-conditioned, modern bathroom, spacious and tastefully decorated. I spent 17 nights at The Royale, an oasis providing beautiful views, wonderful warm people plus good service. Being off season much of the restaurant staff go home to visit family so I often ate with friends, at the Dahani and some other very good restaurants in the area. Sharing home cooked lunch with Harish cooked by his mother was a culinary treat.
Harish & Aarti are a genuine couple who are honest, kind & friendly, they went beyond my every expectation. I really believe they will be blessed with many years of harvest.
All the best my friends

“Very nice hotel in Jaisalmer”
Feb 5, 2009
We had our driver bring us around to look for rooms once we were in Jaisalmer. We looked at Shahi Palace - they only have very small rooms left though the terrace view was great.
We wanted a bigger room since we were going to stay at least 2 nights. Next we looked at Green Hotel which did not look clean, we went to Royale. We bargained for the heritage room and got the deal without breakfast, the staff was unlike the other reviews which say they were very friendly and helpful - they were nice enough. The lady owner was pretty friendly but don't see her around most of the time. She was the one that gave us the suite room for the same price when we were checking in - room 107!! It was a fabulous room! Really nice!
I would recommend this place

We stayed here after checking out of an awful hotel in Jaiselmer.
Rooms are beautifully decorated and clean. The restaurant is good. The location is great. The owners and staff are friendly and helpful, they couldn't have done more for us. What a great place to stay.
