Stayed for 7 days, the stand out about this place is the hospitality of the staff, they are polite, helpful, service is prompt. The food is good, though if u are looking to try something local or ladakhi food this is not your place. Rooms are clean, spacious, bathrooms are clean and modern, though the supply of warm water is a bit irregular. Room service is good. U will need to ask for a room heater if u need one.

The only drawback is that it is located about 2 km away from the market, u either have to hire a cab or indulge in a long walk to get to it.

Room Tip: If u wish to avoid AMS take rooms on the ground floor, but if u prefer the view then go for the high...

Great hotel and very helpful staff, really loved the momos at their restraunt . Went there on 23rd May 2013. The restraunt is clean and tastefully decorated,the rooms are of good size and very comfortable with a glass consevatory in each room balcony to enjoy the warmth of the sun.

I stayed at Hotel Kaal from 6th May to 10th May 2013. . My experience during my stay at Hotel Kaal was Excellent and location of hotel and the view around is very nice. The rooms are neat and clean, meals and service is excellent. The hotel is a little away (about 2Km) from the Leh main market but that do not matter as one is rarely going to market. There is some problem with room heating arrangement due to frequent power cut at Leh all the the time, but the hotel staff try to make it comfrotable with DG Set, extra room heaters and even heating bags in beds at night. Overall the stay at Hotel Kaal was excellent & enjoying and if I am to go again I will prefer this hotel.

Room Tip: Room on 1st or 2nd floor for better view of the Snow and Hills around

I stayed in the hotel Kaal for 5 nights, initially I was bit disappointed because it is around 2-3 KM's from the main Leh market, and if you have to go out you have to call a cab which add to the expenses. Hotel do not offer free transport in the package.

Apart from this small initial disappointment which turn out to be good for us later because we walked in and around hotel, long walks - and by the 3rd day we started walking to the Leh market by foot. And the experience was amazing.

The food was good, rooms were clean and the owner's wife was staying there and she was very friendly and resourceful. A peaceful location, perfect for anyone looking for solace out of the city. It was very well kept property all the basic necessities were provided for, at the end of the tour - I kinda of liked the fact that we stayed here.
