Oriental Guest House is a very friendly and cozy place. It is run by a family who live in the same premises, and it is nice to get a sneak peek into the Ladakhi way of life through them. The view from some of the rooms is breathtaking, but you need to specifically ask them for these rooms. We stayed at this hotel many times during a visit to Ladakh as and when we returned from visiting other places. The rooms we were assigned each time varied greatly from each other, both in terms of quality and size. There is hardly a bathroom without some leakage of water. So be sure to first take a look at the room being assigned to you. The rooms were otherwise generally comfortable and clean. But it would be great if the rooms were standardised and the quality maintained uniformly in all of them. The food is average, but there are tons of other options around the hotel and the family will happily make recommendations, so this did not pose a big problem. They have a lovely library and sitting area where you can spend chilly evenings with nothing else to do. I would go back to this place for the friendly staff and the cozy atmosphere they create.
