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

The 3rd and 4th floor rooms have excellent views that is better than most of the luxury hotels in Leh. Room is clean spacious. Please note this is a budget accommodation and we should not expect luxury and cleanliness of a star hotel. Hot water is always available. Staff is responsive. Restaurant has veg food only. I liked the food... More

The stay at Oriental Guest house was pleasant and we had a nice view of the mountains in the mornings and late evenings. The restaurant is good with tasty North Indian dishes. But there is limited choice of selection in the buffet served for lunch and dinner. The reception is handled by a lady (sister of the owner) who is... More

Oriental Hotel Leh is an excellent place to stay with the most courteous staff and the owner family. The whole family was extremely caring, soft spoken and looked after every kind of comfort we needed during our stay. The rooms were spacious... More
