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.

This is my fourth time in Raku, and i have never been disappointed by it, it has a great view of the Stok Kangri mountains. The family is nice and have kept the place well. They are now building more rooms, so may not remain a guesthouse anymore.

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 stayed here for 5 nights during May 2014. It's a really lovely guesthouse. Raku and family are all very friendly and helpful. The food is delicious, real home cooked Ladakh food! 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

We were in Leh for a Snow Leopard tracking trek and stayed at Raku 2 times. Both times we were warmly welcomed, made to feel at home, asked after and served piping hot meals. 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
