Reviewed April 20, 2014

We have stayed there for 03 days and hotel staff/management ensured to make this trip memorable in every possible manner. When this trip was planned,we were directly booked in this hotel by my colleague and i think that was the best thing happened in Leh.
Amazing food, friendly and helpful staff,superb location and incredible views across will force you to plan your visit again and again to this beautiful city.

I stayed at the Thongsal off season and unfortunately in the middle of a major refurbishment. The hotel is in a quiet location but has incredible views across the mountains. Fairly basic accommodation but very clean and with really helpful staff, although English is fairly limited outside of senior staff. Most importantly the rooms have heating all day, essential if you're there off season (my toothpaste froze in the unheated bathroom). On the whole and despite the refurb, I was comfortable here and staff could not have done more to help.

Room Tip: First floor valley facing rooms have the best views.

Dear Guest,

We are apologetic on account of any inconvenience you might have felt on account of the refurbishment. We had to rush and that was the best time to upgrade the hotel. I can assure you that the upgrades makes the hotel second to none when it comes to the amenities and the high level of service we pride ourselves at delivering. So whenever you plan to visit us again, there would be no inconvenience, during your stay. And yes our staff has picked up a good level of English. See you soon.

Regards,

Thinking for a destination to enjoy my honeymoon and my friend suggested me to visit Leh and Thongsal Resort. Then I decided to go there and stay for a week in Thongsal Resort. During my stay I feel that Thongsal is best resort amongst all the resort I ever visited. Just imagine a resort in a height of 12ooo ft above sea level, what a wonderful location, pleasant climate, best facilities and the best destinations where I visited in a comfortable SUV which makes my journey more comfortable and memorable. Thanks to each and every person who has a role in making my trip memorable….Thanks a lot….

The hotel is located near the Shanti stupa, the breakfast buffet was great and the staff were very friendly and open to help you with sightseeing tips.
My room was a little cold but try to get a room upstairs and will be warmer.

Room Tip: get the rooms upstairs

The Staff was very helpful: they informed me on arrival immediately about what to do (and what not to do) while staying on great hights. The hotel is about 12000 ft above sealevel, you really have to take care. Room was nice, quiet and with a beautiful view on the Himalayas.

Internet is usually terrible. Repeatedly breakdown of electricity. Hot water must come from very far (takes 5 to 10 minutes to shower, which is a waste of water and energy). Watersupply is very minimal. Bathroom was a little smelly anyway. No heating system in the hotel or rooms. Maybe it all has to do with the way how the city of Leh is organized.

Dear Amitji,

Thank you so much for taking out time and giving us such nice compliments. We are glad that you enjoyed staying at Thongsal.
Unfortunately for us, infrastructure in Leh is still a challenge, we try our best to have backups however internet is only provided by BSNL and if their link goes down we are left with no connectivity. Reliance is planning to launch 3G services in Leh which might bring some respite though.

Best Regards!
