The Grand Dragon is a very fine Tibetan Style building and offers all modern amenities to the guests. The rooms are cozy and spacious, offering a view of the Great Himalayan Ranges. The ambience is very rich and traditionally Ladakh, with buddhist motifs and artefacts. Dining is good and seats a large number of guests. In all a very comforting and charming hotel.

This hotel is as cozy and comfortable it can get in a place as remote like Leh. Courteous staff, super food, very peaceful.

I had a great time. A tad bit expensive and not for supremely adventurous trips, will take the fun out of adventure.. But good for romantic holidays.

Stayed June 2009, traveled as a couple

A good choice for the winter (probably for the summer too). If the hot water or heat don't work well in your room, it's worth requesting a change of rooms since they seem to work more reliably in the rooms facing the back of the hotel. Service was friendly and we had no problems changing rooms when we asked to. However, there was a gap in the shower door in our second room and water leaked all over the floor. The food was okay, the internet exorbitantly priced, and some of the beds are rock hard. Overall, though, I would stay here again.

The Grand Dragon Ladakh is one of the best hotels I have been to in India. The Hotel is nice, clean and centrally heated which is a necessity for people not from this area. Their welcome is simply awesome. Garden is pretty and they have an amazing Dining room with completely awesome choice of food. And the desert is different everyday and really unique deserts everyday.

The staff is good and co-operative. At such a location they offer you shower cubicles, central heating, LCD TV's, Wooden flooring and state of the art amenities for such a distant location.

The Hotel is also very neat and clean. It is located around 1 km from the Market, but this is easily walkable. The view on both sides of the Hotel is simple outstanding, beautiful valleys on both the sides.

All meals, Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner have nice variety, from Local food to Continental food everyday, which suites everyone's taste.

  • Liked — Construction, Restaurant and Amenities
  • Disliked — Could have been nearer to the main market

This is the best choice you can have in Leh. Its among the only 2 hotels in Leh which are centrally heated. But this one is close to the only 4-star hotel in Leh. With exclusive beautiful garden on the left as you enter the through the main gate to the reasonably huge Parking space in the front of the hotel.
The restraunts are open all day and also at late nights for the local speciality tea Kehwa if you cant sleep as you have just arrived due to altitude sickness. The rooms have really comfortable beds with heavenly views from the window facing the amazing stok range of greater himalaya range.
The outside lobby has a temperature meter which i haven't seen in any other hotels which read minus 3 when i arrived that night.

The staff is very good & supportive. The service might be not very effective during the offseasons or rush times but the efficiency of the hotel staff is commendable. They take extra care of your needs & trip plannings since the hotel also provides with activities & tour guides with the complete package if the guests are interested. Although there are several tour companies in Leh for such activities.

I had a great time staying there and sugegst everyone to spend a few days at this Hotel when you visit Leh specially if for the first time.

  • Liked — the views & the comfort
  • Disliked — distance from the main market
