Reviewed May 15, 2013

I stayed in this hotel in makemytrip package. Hotel staff is quite helpful.. try to please u as much they can. Owner is vrry friendly too. Food is good too. Only cons are that they close reception after 11 pm. So no phns on reception. Other than that i cant think right now. Its not that high-fi hotel , they do mistakes but overall good experience.

Hi

I stayed at Hotel Kanishka for 4 nights in July. I and my friend had driven to Leh so we wanted to stay a a place which has enough space to park our jeep, nice and cosy beds, clean rooms, peaceful atmosphere and good food. Hotel Kanishka did not disappoint us at all.

The hotel is situated just 150m off the Fort Road and is just 5 minutes drive from the Leh Market and Changspa Road.

We had just checked in and we realised that the Airtel set top box was not functioning. Without giving it a second thought, the hotel guys shifted us to a different room.

Everyone in the hotel has a smile. The staff is cooperative and flexible. They even arranged permit to visit Pangong Lake.

The food is nice. Since we were supposed to leave the hotel early mornings for our excursions, they arranged nice packed breakfast even at 5 AM. Andthe breakfast used to have Parantha with Omlette, Jam-Bread and Frooti Mango Drink.

I would recommend this hotel to all sorts of groups: Friends, Family and Corporate.

Room Tip: I think rooms on first floor are better, specially the ones with a balcony

If you like your hotel to be away from the noise and chaos of the Market and prefer some quiet then Kanishka is definitely a good place to try. Its a small Hotel located at about a 10 minute cab ride from the main market place

Upon entering the hotel you are greeted by a small little garden with a seating area and a swing adjoining it. The lobby area houses the dining area and the reception.

Coming to the rooms - you might want to choose a room on the higher floors since rooms on the Ground floor face the garden and privacy could be an issue. One of the windows to our room opened out to the balcony of the adjoining room! Also rooms can vary in size so you might want to check them out before you finalise where you want to stay. The room we were given was pretty small and cramped while some others in our group got really massive and spacious rooms! But since we were travelling on a package tour and there was no other room available we couldnt change.

Food is just about okay - nothing to write home about.

The staff is nice and friendly and service requests are quickly attended to.

All in all a good hotel that is a little away from the market. Good for someone who prefers being away from the noise but for those who like their shopping it might be a pain.

Room Tip: Avoid taking a room on the Ground floor since they are garden facing and privacy can be an issue!
