Are You Looking For Economical Yet Luxurious Stay? Look For Hotel Roop Mahal!

My visit to Jaisalmer had a lot of things packed in the pandora’s box. The stay was one of the feature which I liked and enjoyed to the fullest. I reached early in the morning at 6:00 AM through train. I was a little troubled because normally hotels have a strict check in and check out timings. Thought I might have to wait for few hours before check in to my hotel i.e Hotel Roop Mahal. However the manager in charge was most courteous and decided to give me a room well before the check in time.

I was in a state of crux as I knew that the standard room which I booked, might not be upto my expectations. Generally they are not as they are meant for backpackers and people traveling on low budget. However the case was opposite.

The Rooftop Restaurant

One the rooftop of Hotel Roop Mahal, a restaurant serving vegetarian and non-vegetarian delicacies is set. The food is delicious and is a must have. The best part was the non-vegetarian food from the restaurant, cooked by Ustad Ji, having the taste of Rajasthani spices and flavor. Once more thing that I liked about the restaurant that it does not keep a day old chicken into freezers like other hotels do. If you want to eat mean, you need to give the order an hour advance. Meat is brought fresh from the market and then prepared for you.
