The hotel is really far from leh. Needed taxi all the time, and if in the day time its ok to walk 20 minutes down from the hotel. Climbing up is a different story, and not reccomened at night. The rooms are nice, even though the cable TV is not working anymore. The shower is poor, and we had to... More

Written by poster's wife: We feel really really privileged to have been able to stay at silver cloud. There's quite a bit to write, so I will see if I can do Sonam and family justice while keeping my notes under dissertation length:) We found them through trip advisor, and they were (rightfully) listed as the best guesthouse around. Granted,... More

I stayed in this lovely guest House for nearly 2 weeks. As other reviewers have said, it is quiet, homely, sometimes amusingly quirky, and generally well run. Although a 20 minute walk out of Leh centre, there are a variety of beautiful and interesting walks to take which lead into different parts of the town. (not recommended in the dark... More

オーナーは日本人好きで、とても親切です。街からは離れるけれど、その分インド特有のあの騒音や排気ガスとは無縁で、静かにゆっくり過ごせます。短い時間を目一杯観光に充てるより、ここではあえてのんびりするのがおススメです。 1泊2日のトレッキングから帰った夕方、もう申し込みの時間は終わっていたのにもかかわらず、夕食をオーダーしたところ用意してくださいました。疲れきっていたのでとても助かりました。 部屋はシングルで山側だったためかやや寒く感じました。しかし暖かい日中は庭の椅子でのんびりできるし、オーナー宅のおばあちゃんも同じように日向ぼっこをしていて、本当にゆっくりできました。 9月の後半に利用したのですが、朝晩の冷え込みは10℃を切っていました。寒さ対策として、追加でブランケットや湯たんぽをリクエストしたところ、快く対応してくださいました。 I stayed there 5 nights in the last week of september. When I arrived there, I was so tired, probably got light mountain sickness. Owner, Sonamu, kindly welcomed and worried about my health and allowed to lie down in the sofa in front of the beautiful garden. It was most comfortable nap I ever took. First... More

We had a great stay here. Sonam and his wife looked after us so well, and cooked very good meals for us. We were made to feel 'at home' and would definitely stay here again . Nice and quiet location, near to Sanskar Gompa and not far from the donkey sanctuary. Lovely 10-15 minute walk into town. A traditional Ladakhi... More

We stayed here for 5 days in August. We enjoyed our visit immensely. The owner, Sonam and his wonderful family seem to work hard to find a balance between making the place comfortable for visitors, while still retaining a strong sense of the traditional Ladakhi culture. This is especially important at a time when Leh appears to be changing quite... More

We are a family with 3 children (12, 10 and 2 1/2 years) and spend a wonderful time at Silver Cloud Guesthouse. During our 1 month stay in Ladakh we returned 4 times to this unique place in Leh. It was always like coming home. Although the guesthouse is not in the center, we all enjoyed the beautiful and easy... More

After an arduous journey from Srinigar, I arrived at Silver Cloud as a clear Sunday turned into a crisp Ladakh night. I was met at the gates by Stanzin, the attentive son of the charasmatic local owner. Despite a ful guest house and no confirmed boking, the family recognised my plight as a lone traveller and temporarily accomodated me in... More

Coming back to Silver Cloud from the fantastic 3 day trek with Tsensen they organised for us felt like coming home. The guest house staff are wonderfully friendly and helpful, the beautiful gardens are really peaceful and restful, our room is immaculate and comfortable, and the home cooked meals were healthy, plentiful and delicious. I wish I could stay longer!

My friend and I have stayed at Silver Cloud for 3 nights and couldn't be happier with our choice. The family who run it are warm and welcoming and bent over backwards to help us. The traditional meals are delicious and good value. We had a lovely garden room which was light and airy. The location is great. It is... More
