We have stayed nice at the Oriental, once in winter, before the new wing was built and again this month in the new 'hotel' wing. We can highly recommend it. Ignore the carping 'cooking smell,' remarks in Lonely Planet, as the spotless kitchen is in the new building. Rooms are very clean, comfortable and exceptionally good value. Whilst in my... More

This quiet, well managed and maintained hotel is from 10 minutes walk from the centre. It has a garden with kaleyard and calm dogs. The hotel was built in Tibetan style. You will find a library here (OK, OK it isn't the Library of Congress but it should be estimated in the desert...). Rooms are comfortable and clean. The vegetarian... More

We couldn't have asked for a better stay. Superb staff- they take good care of you. The food tastes amazing... More

We stayed in this hotel for 2 days after reviewing the comments online. The rooms and the staff are good. The view from the room is good as well. However we found the food to be average and would recommend exploring fort roads. There are many restaurants on it. Tibetan Kitchen and Dreamland are really good. The only negative i... More

We stayed here for almost 9 days on our trip to Ladakh. We were very happy with the overall experience. Only draw back is that the room heaters are kept on in the evening for a couple of hours only, so that might be an issue if you find it hard to deal with the cold. Otherwise we were very... More

We stayed for 3 nights in this place and though the rooms / bath very normal, the attitude of the owner and all staffs in the hotels was really friendly and so whatever negatives the hotel had, the attitude of staffs won it over
