Right rom the airport pick-up, the quick check-in, beautiful property and impeccable service, our stay here really did more than justice to the trip. The staff was excellent and they go out of their way to make sure everything's perfect. Their drivers are safe, reliable and efficient. They organised our day trips to Pangong and everywhere else. The food in the restaurant is perfect, and they have a really good vegetarian menu as well. The rooms and bathrooms are spotless and comfortable. The room service is very efficient.
The balconies on each floor offer the most stunning view of the mountains, their garden is beautiful and the property is very close to both, the airport and the market, which makes it easy to get around when you're looking to walk.
I would definitely come back and stay and would recommend the same to all traveling to Ladakh. Overall, a totally worth it & perfectly amazing stay :)

The Grand Dragon Ladakh is not cheap by any standard, but is Value For Money due to the amenities, personal touch and the dedication of the staff.

One advise, when it becomes hot in August, Leh-Ladakh hotels and houses are not designed to keep you cool. Only for one day we missed an HVAC system or Khus-Khus Coolers.

The doorman's greeting and smile, the paintings displayed in the lobby and around the hotel (each of the masterpieces have been created by the owner Mr. Ghulam Musatafa himself), the food and the ease with which the cook tweaks each dish upon special request, the service by the F&B and housekeeping staff - Each of these make one feel like a VVIP.

My family and I truly relish the experience and look forward to Mr. Mustafa having an exhibition someday so that we can acquire and own one of his watercolours (especially the old lady near the reception).

we were in Ladakh 10-15 August for a getaway from the city bustle.We drove into the Grand Dragon hotel after landing in Leh airport (11,500 Ft).For some in our group it was the very first time in the Himalayas.For me it was nostalgia( I did my first climbing expedition in this very Ladakh Himalayas).From the airport we cou;d see snow clad peaks all around- a gret sight for everyone indeed!The drive to the hotel was short considering the distances we have to cover in our cities.The open yard of the hotel is very inviting with a nice garden with a[[le trees and flowering plants and also swings for kids to play.The entrance is brightky decorated with the typical ladakhi motiffs.We were all welcomed with thier traditional sacred scarfs.The staff are very pleasant and helpful.The rooms are spacious and the view from my room was spectacular - the snow clad peaks.we stayed here on 3 alternate nights inbetween travel in the Nubra valley(about which is another review).The food is good including the local fare.This apparently is the best hotel in Leh and I would very much think so! In all a good place top stay.Be sure to book well in advance during peak summer season!

Room Tip: ask for a room with the view of the peaks

...for a "star rated" hotel in Leh. Surrounded by B & B's, Hostels and more 'rugged' accommodations, the Grand Dragon is a real hotel. Extremely helpful staff, fast internet (extra $) and clean, well laid out rooms. Electricity worked 98% of the time so make sure you have a battery in your laptop. Situated on the Old Road just below old town within close, walking distance. Fairly new (4 years? as of Aug. '12) with local architecture incorporated in the design. Comfortable beds, large private bathrooms. Allow one day on arrival for altitude acclimation- very important.

Room Tip: South facing rooms have a great long distance view over house roof tops.

Our large group of 32 people had wonderful stay at Grand Dragon Hotel. We were picked up by hotel staff at the airport and smoothly checked in by front desk staff. All meals were excellent including package lunch to Pangong Lake. Service staff at restaurant was one of the best and accomodated all our demands. Rooms were clean and efficient. We had sightseeing included in our package. Their drivers were also very friendly and had clean cars.Overall great stay and great experience at Grand Dragon.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better views
