Another disappointing 'luxury' hotel Aug 31, 2010
The Mahadev Palace was another hotel which was booked as part of our tour. Another place which I wouldn't have mind to have skipped altogether. Not that there is much wrong with it, it is just that this place is so decidedly average that I can't help but thinking our money could have been better spent on an average hotel closer to the town centre.

I can't think of a reason why anyone would want to stay here: it lies way too far outside the centre, the staff is totally indifferent (apart from the luggage wallas, who are happy to carry your bags for a few metres in order to demand a tip), the rooms are worn and breakfast is a joke.

During our stay we came across several minor nuisances that made us label this the least recommended accommodation of our trip:

- Whenever we would leave our room our air-conditioning would be switched off by a staff member flicking a switch in the fuse box. Now this is fairly common practice in India, but it was a nuisance that each time we came back to our room we had to phone reception for the A/C to be turned back on (not to mention the fact that it took about four hours for the tiny A/C unit to get the room to manageable temperatures).

- Internet is an absurd Rs150 an hour, the most expensive we have seen all over the country.

- We ordered an extra drink during breakfast for which we had to pay extra as it wasn't included with the breakfast that was part of our room deal. Fair enough, but for some reason unspecified, unlisted 'taxes' were added to our bill.

Upon returning to New Delhi we told our travel agent about our bad experience and advised them to find alternatives (closer to the city!) for future customers. At exactly that point two more customers came in and had exactly the same opinion of the hotel.

I think the Mahadev Palace is definitely off their list. My advice to anyone travelling to Jaisalmer? Stay away from this place! It's not worth it.

Good review! Just recently stayed at this hotel and the hotel is mediocre. For Jaisalmer standards it's good but it would have been nicer to stay somewhere closer to the center.

This hotel was very nice, clean and had all the amenities. It had a pool, internet access and restaurant. All the staff was warm and friendly also.

The rooms were spacious and clean, the bathroom always had hot water and flushed normally.

If you are ever in Jaisalmer , i would recommend you check this hotel out.

So, it was shortly after midnight when I walked to our hut and found the door open. The temperature inside would have made an average Finnish sauna jealous and Biedjee was lying on the big bed surrou…Jaisalmer. The Mahadev Palace hotel where we stayed one night was quite a long walk removed from the center…
