The rooms are extremely spacious, clean and well lit. Hot water is always available and the drinking water is extremely clean ground water. Location is perfect as it is far away enough from... More

If you are not comfortable with noice of market & still u want to stay nearby to it with homely experience than "raku" is best choice. Homely & heavenly experience. Rooms are very nice, food is very fresh & its of our choice. This family is always helping in shopping, travelling tips....etc. I think raku is best choice for me.

The rooms are clean, large, nicely furnished with a zen feeling, with wide windows and a beautiful view (avoid ground floor rooms). The beds are quite comfortable, the bathrooms also very well done and with constant hot water (precious in Leh... and rare!). There are a lot of common spaces where you can chill, read... We did not have diner... More

We stayed in room 101 which has an amazing view across to the mountains. It's a short walk into the centre of Leh or if you need help... More

The homely atmosphere brings a lot of comfort and Sonam and his parents are very helpful with information. The guest house is 10 min walk from... More

Nice little guesthouse run by a really nice family. The location is a little away from Leh, but that makes it quiet. The food is fantastic. The rooms are nice and the building is new. They, however, bill themselves as able to take guests in the wintertime/cold. I absolutely do not recommend. They have gas heaters but they must be... More

Excellent guest house in Leh. We stayed for 5 nights total before and after a trek (Jingchen to Chilling) in October. OVERALL AND SERVICE: The family couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly and it was excellent value. They are being nice to you, not because you are paying huge sums but because they are genuinely lovely people. ROOM: The... More
