The location of this hotel is within a drive of approx 15 min from the airport, its very close to Shanti Stupa. We stayed in Oriental Hotel they have 3 blocks to the property as they have a guesthouse, hotel and suites. The Hotel owner was very welcoming and sweet. As we were travelling in a group everyone was satisfied... More

I stayed here for a week from 9th August till 16th August during my Leh and Ladakh tour. Following is my review based on my personal experience. Pro's: 1) Nice and quite location below Shanti Stupa. Outside of the busy changzpa road and market. 2) views from the rooms are amazing with the snow clad peaks in the backdrop of... More

I've stayed quite a few different places in Leh, and by far this is my favourite. Best service, value, beautiful rooms, staff are so friendly and generous, I could just go on and on. It's a bit of a walk from town, but I like being out of the crush, so it was perfect!

We had stayed in guest house for 2 nights. The rooms are good and the view is beautiful. Rooms were clean and maintained. A small vegetable farm is maintained by the staff which I had a view from my room. Got a few nice camera shots. When we reached we were welcomed with a smile. The hotel staff is good.... More

Hands down one of the best experiences ever. While they have scaled up in recent years and things are generally more expensive, you cannot go wrong with Oriental. It's also at the bottom of Shanti Stupa and a pleasant walk from the main market. The breakfast is to die for. And it still has a quaint feel to it despite... More

This is probably one of the most beautiful guesthouse/hotel in Leh. It is ocated just below the Shanti Stupa which is a bit far from the center (walking distance 20 minutes) But thanks to this location you enjoy a great views of Stok range and very peaceful environment. I stayed in the guesthouse part which is older and much cheaper... More

It is neither a guest house or hotel...it is like home. I had stayed at Oriental Guest House in July 2016 for 5 days. It is a family run guest house and hotel. Right from the reception to the restaurant, the service is with smile. So much of positive aura in this place that we found difficult to leave this... More

While, it is called as a guest house, it is comparable to a good hotel. The guest house is located just at the base of Shanti Stupa. It is far from the hustle and bustle of the main city however pretty close to Changspa road (the busy road with eateries and hangouts). The place is very neatly maintained. The garden... More

I have stayed here at the Oriental Guesthouse in Leh, twice already. First when we went up Stok Kangri in 2013 and last year when we went up Mentok Kangri, 2015. I love the fact that the guest house is located outside the bustling town proper. It simply gives you the serenity and seclusion. Me and my friends loved the... More
