“Friendly and comfortable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012

We were treated consistently well by the sweet Ladakhi family that runs this guest house. Nothing fancy! But comfortable, clean, and reasonably priced.

Room Tip: There's a nice room with a balcony in front. Others have attached solar-powered showers, and the...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2011

Big clean rooms with lots of windows in a great location. Located a couple hundred meters from the center of town and surrounded by fields instead of buildings. The location and rooftop and garden patios make it quiet and relaxing. No soap or TP but towels on request. They have wifi which is surprisingly fast, probably because it’s not used by many people – but you have to tell them when you want to use it, else it’s powered off. The kind family let me check in early morning and let me stay until 11:30pm on the night of my checkout with no extra fee (so I could relax and sleep some before the overnight bus trip to Manali).

Three Australian girls travelling through India recommended this place to us and we were not disappointed. About a 5 minute walk off the main road of Leh, the family run guesthouse is surrounded by greenery with a nice view of the surrounding Kashmir mountains. There's also a very nice balcony you can sit on to soak up the sun with a book, or just watch the sun go down.
The rooms and bathrooms are clean and the family that runs the guesthouse can't do enough for you to make your stay enjoyable. Not to mention that you are welcomed back to the world with a deliciously warm cuppa every morning. We have been travelling for 10 months around Asia and this place would be in the top 3 family run guesthouses we've visited.
The family have internet and wifi options for about half the price you will pay at the internet cafes in town.
The rooms are very affordable, when we stayed there the price for their cheapest room was about 350 rupees per night, but they also have large ensuite rooms with views that cost about 500 rupees per night and are very spacious.
I've seen some reviews online and I think people are confusing this guesthouse with another hotel in Leh that I've seen called Glacier VIew. The picture without the person in it on this website is of the wrong guesthouse. Make sure you get taken to the Glacier View guesthouse in Upper Tukcha Road. It's worth it!

Room Tip: The cheapest rooms have a shared bathroom, but in our two weeks there we didn't have to wait to...

The rooms here were basic - undersheet and blankets only - but bathroom was spacious, beautiful garden and nice balcony for the sun in the evening. Owner very helpful - great value for the money and fairly central location.

At Rs 300 for a double room, could not have asked for more. The rooms were big, and the guest house has a nice welcoming garden area. The food at the restaurant is good too. Recommended for the budget traveller.
