One of those rare AirBnb experiences that will leave you breathless. This is a quaint place within the fort in Jaisalmer and was the actual residence of the royal family! Pikoo is incredibly accommodating and will make sure that your stay here is an experience to remember.

Pikoo has a lovely place - one of the most interesting places I've ever stayed - to stay inside the fort is very neat! The entire place is filled with little touches and Pikoo and her staff were very helpful and kind.
