Lovely clean rooms with nice hosts. Very helpful hosts who were lovely. Family were very sweet and understanding. They went out of their way to help when we needed it! Most rooms have en suite. Some without bathrooms bit share with another room. Amazing experience in Leh. Will be back! Sabah and Julien

The owners are very welcoming and good cookers ! The rooms are big, mountain and garden view, good bed and pillow, beautiful bathroom with personal warm shower. Ideal place to stay and discover Leh (7 min from center by foot). We'll come back and stay longer next time.

It was our home for a week, and sure felt like it. The homely welcome, amazing food, spectacular view, all contributed to it being a very positive experience. It's a 15 minute walk from the market area, which in itself is a wonderful walk in the evening. Electricity cuts are common, as is the case in the city, but they... More

We did not know what to expect when we arrived at this guesthouse as it was originally booked by a tour company. However, once we arrived it was clear that we were in a special place. We were cooked homemade meals every day of our stay with them, and they even customized the food to our acquired taste. Better, yet,... More

We spent a week here in May 2015, and the experience was made so much better by the fantastic family and their beautiful home. We felt very welcome from the moment we were picked up at the airport, and the family become our guides to Leh for the remainder of our stay. They were constant sources of information on where...

My friend & I chose Raku Guest House for our first visit to Leh, & are so happy we did! Having a relatively short amount of time to stay in Leh, we went back and forth on our plans for driving trips and/or a short trek. We weren't sure how well we'd acclimate so we didn't set any activity plans... More

This place is ideal if your looking for a homestay .The Raku family took extremely good care of us and we thoroughly enjoyed their hospitality. Morning breakfast is the ideal as they give you freshly made gobi parathas acquired from their own organic garden.Please try booking... More
