It is little away from the main city, very beautiful, peaceful and home away from home. Food is excellent and service is very good. The couple who owns this stunning place make you feel very special and give personal touch. I loved the place.

Facing south onto a beautiful flowery garden with chairs, tables and hammocks, nice big rooms, heating, hot water, and plenty of good food, this is a family owned hotel. The hotel itself is lovely, but the management and staff make the experience special. They are kind and friendly and very helpful, really good people. The hotel is about 25 mins... More

Family owned with wonderful, local ambiance. Safe, quiet, lots of fresh air, good wi-fi, and wholesome and delicious food. The management can provide very helpful advice on access to health care, tours and guides, shopping, etc. We stayed at Hotel Shambhala for 10 nights. Our memories of Hotel Shambhala will always be a warm part of wonderful memories of Ladakh!

Some of the most helpful, polite and serviceminded staff I've met in all of India of the odd 30-some hotels I've visited. The location is a little off, but perfect for getting away from the bustling city streets. The staff will arrange to drop you off in the city center for free with just a few minutes notice.

A quaint, old fashioned hotel where there are no glitzy paintings but priceless Ladakhi wall paintings, where the view from your window is a snow-covered Ladakh range, Russian poplars, women tilling and preparing the land for the inhouse garden come summer, where there is no air-conditioned covered lobby, but a beautiful lawn full of wooden & string chairs, hammocks, bonfire...Shambhala...

The reception area, common areas are cozy n warm with cane chairs n sofas.we enjoyed d evenings playing cards, antakshari, etc. The owners... More

The rooms are very good, food excellent, staff courteous. Though, rates are on the higher side, but you won't feel the pinch after your stay here. Unlike "Jamal Resort, Srinagar" where you feel as if your pocket has been picked or you have been looted by hooligans. I really appreciate, that they have preserved & maintained the greenery around the... More

I chose this hotel over others in Leh going by the reviews here and I was not disappointed, rather I was delighted with the place. Getting a reservation done was a bit of a pain as I had to call first then send an e-mail and deposit money via a bank transfer. But, in the end it was worth it.... More
