We planned our trip to Leh during August'15. We stayed here for 4 days (not the same 4 days for which we had booked the hotel). When we reached the hotel, we were informed that there has been a landslide and routes are closed. This led to change in plans for us, but hotel owners, who stay in the hotel... More

The family running this, lives in a private part of the same property. So if you are not one of those who like big, luxurious, impersonal hotels, this one is for you. The family itself and staff are friendly, caring and attentive. Nice large rooms with an additional small attached room for any accompanying children or additional adults. A short... More

The hotel is a pleasant oasis of silence and peace close to the centre of Leh. During our stay we had a few issues with hot water, WiFi (but the issue was in the entire state of Jammu and Kashmire), lack of heating in the room. All these little inconveniences have been compensated by the professionalism and care delivered by... More

The hotel is basic but the service is great and the meals were too big but tasted great. Highly recommend. The hotel has hot showers and is quiet. I recommend you rent a motorcycle and venture out into the hills.
