The Oriental Guest House is perfect for the budget traveller. But if you want the luxury of privacy and amazing service - request for a stay in their villa which is just a few minutes drive away from their actual guest house. You won't regret the decision. The cook at the villa is a genius, the service exceptional, the rooms... More

The Oriental Guest House has consistlantly been the best of Ladakh, year after year. I've been visiting Ladakh for over 20yrs., have stayed in many different guesthouses, and have found the Oriental to be one of the best. I have to say, though, that many, many good guesthouses can be found for under $20 USD per night--don't even bother looking... More

It was a nice and comfortable stay. The beautiful open space and scenery will welcome you. It is right below the Shanti Stupa, with a view of the surrounding snow-capped mountains in the distance. The rooms are well furnished, clean and hygienic. Adjacent to reception, the hotel has a beautiful and warm study area with a nice library of books... More

Beautiful views of the mountains - snow capped when we were there! Such friendly staff - a real family feel. Rooms are basic but very comfortable and more than adequate. A little out of town (but such a nice walk into the centre) but a nice quiet and beautiful area. Enjoyed the garden area and fantastic to see their garden... More

We went there in end of September and they told us that we can pluck apples from their tree and try it. Hotel has own cybercafe... More

Rooms are good, food is amazing. The view from the room are awsome (ask for top floor) otherwise you will miss the view. The good thing about hotel is that it is sitauted just next to shanti stupa and near by G1 cafe (probably the best cafe in town).

Throughout our trip to Leh (9 days) we stayed at Oriental Hotel, which is right next to Shanti Stupa and merely 15-20 mins walk from the market. It is hardly 10 minutes from the Airport and you can take a pre-paid taxi from a counter at the airport which is readily available. It costed us INR 250 for a ride... More
