We visited in August and was relatively more hot than expected. We stayed in the East Wing of the hotel, which has been recently constructed & were overwhelmed with the view. Our stay was made exceedingly comfortable and homely with the fabulous service of the Kaal hotel. Can't wait to plan our next trip back just to spend some more... More

My first visit to Leh made me stay in Hotel Kaal - a seemingly decent property on the face of it. Perfect value for money, neat and absolutely no-nonsense staff distinguishes this hotel........not to mention a free wifi that can come to your rescue since there's no mobile data available in Leh. Food was good with nice decor in restaurant... More

Our family had a wonderful time at Hotel The Kaal. I asked the owner lady how come she has named it Kaal. She said that the Budhist monk had suggested it. The lady is Mrs. Sonam. She takes personal interest in all the inmates and makes one feel at home away from home. The food is awesome. The location is... More

The stuff is great. The room is warm and comfortable.Beautiful Garden and nice view. 20-30 min walking from the main Bazar of Leh, so it is a little tiring every day make that walk to have dinner, and if you take a taxi it is expensive for the cost of the room. Maybe they didn´t have cars to the center... More

Hotel Kaal is comfortable place to stay in Leh but always book the room in the old section of the hotel and not the new one. For the first night we were given rooms in the new extension building which had leaking ceiling ,no towel rods in the bathroom and no heater. The old building has wooden floors with heaters... More
