“pleasantly surprised”
Reviewed November 23, 2011

I was here last summer. I booked the hotel online, and since it was really cheap, i didnt know what i was going to expect, or if the place even existed, i had no phone number or email as reference.
So, I arrived, with no expectations whatsoever, and was pleasantly surprised with a very small family run hotel, with very simple rooms and facilities.. and fantastic hospitality.
People in Leh are extremely nice, quiet, soft people. And so is the family that runs this hotel, i think they are surprised by foreigners and our customs, and often stare and look in awe or with curiosity..
The rooms are warm, made of wood, with hard beds, clean bathrooms, and windows facing the himalayas. The gardens are full of homegrown vegetables with which they cook the meals, and there is a creek of fresh freezing mountain water than runs in the front and is continuously making a really pretty sound. The breakfast and dinner is huge, sometimes strange, and always well served.. i guess they´re used to people eating a lot after walking in the mountains.
I would definitely stay here again.

Ladakh is just awesome & this is the hotel I'd like to come again.
Very helpful people in this hotel, especially the manager.
First timers usually face the problem of altitude sickness in Leh & you need someone to lend a helping hand.
He also gives all required information for first timers.
They also provide all facilities for sight-seeing & permits etc.

Hotel is at walking distance from the Leh market
The room was clean.
Hot water was available.
The View was amazing, Shanti Stupa from one view, Leh Palace from other & beautiful Ladakh Range from another.
The ambiance is also good & is a typical Ladakhi architecture.
Food was hygienic & good. (buffet meals).

I checked many other hotels & lodges, but I'd highly recommend this Hotel.

Room Tip: Deluxe room is good

The title is clichéd but its true.
Me & my wife stayed here for a week in July 2011.
The manager was extremely helpful, just like family, especially when I needed the most, when my & my wife's health went bad due to altitude-sickness.

Access & location:
Hotel is at walking distance from the Leh market & yet away from the hustle-bustle of the Leh main road in a peaceful location.
Room: The room was clean & equipped with required amenities & bedroom & toilet. Hot water was available.
View:
The View was amazing, Shanti Stupa from one view, Leh Palace from other & beautiful Ladakh Range from another.
The ambiance is also good & is a typical Ladakhi architechture.
Food: Food is hygienic & a home-like taste. They have a buffet meals with unlimited food in the dining area.
Serives: All services for sight-seeing is available at the hotel itself (need to inquire the manager)
TV was available in my room.

Room Tip: Select the deluxe room on first level

The location is good, 10-15 minute walk from main market. The place is managed by a couple; I must praise them for the amount of work they put as the support staff is very less and is available only during peak season. You will get home cooked food and basic services but don't expect luxuries. The room is cleaned at repeated requests and availability of hot water is always an issue. However, it is probably the same with all similar guest houses in Laddakh. Overall, a good and different experience staying in this hotel.

A friend and I stayed in this hotel for 10 days and from the moment we arrived we felt at home. The rooms have a traditional feel and are comfortable but it is the garden and kitchen that really delight the senses. The Garden is a oasis of calm,full of flowers and a great place to sit and relax post-trek with a glass of spiced tea. Meals are all home cooked using organic home grown vegetables and many traditional Ledakhi recipes are available to try alongside other indian and European style items. The Dining room has a pleasant communal feel where you can meet up with other guests and swap notes on treks and traveller's tales. The hotel owners, Rigzen and Kunzes are friendly and welcoming and go out of their way to ensure that guests get the best from their stay - you can arrange your trek from here and also taxis to take you sight seeing in the area. The location of the hotel is also good - Located in upper Leh, it is near enough to the action of the main city but distanced away from the hustle and bustle so that remains a peaceful retreat throughout the day and night. We met lots of guests making return visits and I hope to do the same some time soon.

We stayed a week at Hotel Chube and were instantly charmed by the lovely garden and setting and the warm welcome by the owners.. It's located in upper Leh away from the huzzle and buzzle of the town centre however only a short walk away. The rooms are clean and cosy, the garden is great for chilling and outdoor dining and the restaurant offered us some of the best home cooked food we had in India. Everything is freshly made and comes from their organic garden. The owners Rigzen and Kunzes are lovely, helpful and very welcoming. They have many repeat visitors. Trekking and other trips can be booked via the hotel too. I strongly recommend Hotel Chube for your stay in Leh, if not try it for lunch or dinner and enjoy the lovely setting.
