About us


Welcome to Hotel Helsinki House!
At the edge of the Gadisar lake this beautiful sandstone hotel has uninterrupted views out across the desert sands, a monsoonal lake and the golden city, Jaisalmer. The breathtaking intricate designs on the façade of the hotel have been hand carved by local artisans, giving a palatial feel to this boutique establishment. This feeling is enhanced when you step inside each of the individually designed suites that inspire the magic of India.
The name “Helsinki House” is a tribute to the city that gave Ali Khan (the owner) the opportunity to turn his childhood dream into a reality. Ali khan is living and working in Helsinki, Finland and he was born in a small village town 30km outside of Jaisalmer. He arrived in Jaislamer at the age of 7, to work for an uncle . This is a true rags to riches story of a desert boy who dreamed of one day building a hotel and through many years of hard work, a little bit of luck and a whole lot of charm, his vision has come to fruition.
