Royal Ladakh is a very plush looking hotel, but you won't get any Leh feel there. Except, if you looked at the ceiling done in wooden logs.
We were told that room 102 was the only one available, though we saw many guests arrive after us. It is on the ground floor and overlooks the garden, so one has to keep the curtains drawn. Rooms are nice but could be bigger. The bathroom was clean with hot water 24 hrs. Staff was very brisk though, getting enough warm water to drink seemed tougher than at other places we stayed.
I found the breakfast spread limited, and staff was not very courteous. Items on request etc that were available as we saw a foreign tourist group having, was not communicated. I was also looking for something other than poori bhaji and such heavy stuff, so I was limited to bread toast and fruit. The manager too seemed overly business minded. And staff over focused on the larger groups and foreigners.
At 4K a night, everything was nice and modern. So, if you want that, this is the hotel for you. It is near the market. We stayed at a homestay called ThupWang that was between Nalanda Ladakh and Royal Ladakh, as onemoves towards the Bazaar and that was much better, We stayed there for the next three days and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our cost of those three days was also lesser than this one night, and with hot water all though too :-)
so, to each his own!
