“Good Budget Hotel at a great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013

This review comes in very fresh, since we stayed at Bijoo Hotel until yesterday morning (i.e., 24th May 2013)!!

We went with a family of 6 and 1 infant. So this might interest a lot of couples with infants or young kids.

So here it is..

Positive:
- Service: In fact we were surprised to see such good service at a remote place like Leh. On detailed discussion with the owner Mr. Bijoo Khan, we got to know that a lot of foreign tourist do visit here and they have matured with this.
- Response Time: Good response time. The entire hotel staff is quick and respond very well to your requests.
- Hospitality: Very welcoming and warm. Mr. Bijoo Khan himself is a wonderful person with loads of interesting facts and info.
- Food: Good variety of food at dinner. Enjoyed the soups, pasta and chinese cuisine. Breakfast has a fixed menu of bread-butter, parathas and omelette. But very sumptuous and filling. Tea-Coffee was readily available!! You surely need a lot of tea-coffee, with outside temperatures being quite low.
- Friendly: The entire hotel staff is from Jharkhand (and so is in almost all the the hotels in Leh) and everyone was very friendly.
- Location: This is a super positive for Bijoo. Centrally located with the Tibetan Refugee Markets around, Axis Bank ATM just outside the hotel and Chaska-Maska Restaurant (visit suggested).

Neutral:
- Cleanliness: This can surely be improved further.
- Room Size: There are two buildings which host around 20+ rooms. Building on the left has smaller rooms on two floors while building on the right has bigger rooms. Well, there isn't much scope to increase the room
- Children Engagement: Not much for the kids to play with except for the open spaces to run around. But this isn't much of a bother since most of the time is spent sight-seeing or relaxing.

Negative:
- Hot Water Timings: 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the evening. They are now planning to install solar water heaters but that may take at least 4-6 more months.
- Room Lighting: Lighting needs improvement as room lighting is low and dim.

Others:
- The staff was very helpful & courteous in preparing food for our 1 year old daughter. As per hotel policy, they do not allow external food to be cooked in their kitchen but we had taken a lot of stuff from home for the baby.

Note - They have their website and photos on it. You may contact the owner Mr. Bijoo Khan directly and work a good itinerary before going there.

So all in all a good budget hotel which is centrally located!

Our first stay in Leh after landing, so we stayed the first day in the nice garden to rest and acclimatise. We had our meals in the hotel, and these were niced and varied. The rooms were a bit less than expected, the shower was only cold. The shampoo and gel were used.Our second stay was better. the room nicer and higher up, and even had one warm shower.
The hotel is located right next to the bazaar and some 20 minutes walking from the stairs to Shanti Stupa.

Room Tip: Ask if the water in the shower is warm, sometimes they forget to turn the heater on.

The hotel is very well located. Hospitability is too good, I have never seen such a helpful staff. Though not a five star property, but the service is comparable to it. I`ll surely stay at this hotel,if I again visit Leh. And also I recommend to other visitors as well. :)

When I was told that I would be accomodated in Hotel Bijoo I did wonder if this would be a great place to stay. But the moment I reached there right from the very hospitable hosts, smiling and warm staff to the room every thing was perfect. Dont compare this to a five star hotel as its something home away from home. All your needs viz., travel arrangement, early breakfast to packed lunches would be taken care off. It would be a perfect holiday where you need to let Bijoo and his team bother. Plus point is they do lay out a very good indian vegetarian fare.

Sure I would visit Ladakh again and Hotel Bijoo would be the place to stay.

Recently, I was there at Leh and stayed in Hotel Bijoo. One can not expect more than what we got at the hotel. Nice rooms, with evening, morning real hot water; very nice food of various types which no less in quality than our food at home, Tea coffee almost at any time. No TV in the rooms is very good feature of the hotel. I appreciate this feature, as one would not get engaged in activities very similar to at home.
Good open space for a group to meet, chat.
Besides, hotel can arrange very nice tour packages through out the Ladakh.
Once stayed, one can not think of staying at nay other hotel.
