Hotel Nalanda Ladakh
Ranked #5 of 75 Hotels in Leh
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 6, 2014

We reached Leh without any prior booking in May which happens to be a peak tourist time in Leh. We were fortunate to get one room at Hotel Nalanda and experienced the hospitality hardly seen in today's commercialised hotel and tourism sector.

While the hotel is a little far away from the main market, it offers basic amenities. Nevertheless we found that there were no compromises made on cleanliness and hygiene. There are limited choices in the buffet meals offered by the hotel, it is more then compensated with the quality of food offered. Home cooked curries, tawa fulkas and sumptuous soups... It is a delight to be at the hotel.

We were with the kids at the hotel and the Manager of the hotel Mr Nubroo, left no stone unturned in giving personalised service and taking care of everything that we may need. Right from booking the camps, packing the breakfast, arranging for medicines, arranging for taxis etc. he was almost always there for the right guidance and help in the otherwise rugged terrains of Ladakh. If it was not for him, the memories of Ladakh would not have been the same.

This hotel is a must because of the exceptional service it gives. We would like to thank everyone in the hotel for making the trip pleasant and memorable for us.

Room Tip: Do book in advance. Rooms on First Floor are airy and have a good view of the mountains.

This review for Hotel "Nalanda Ladakh" is late from the time I visited it. But nevertheless a must on my to-do list as I awaited for the season to Open this year. My experience of 4 days stay at the hotel was pleasant, being dealt with utmost attention and care and knowing that very moment that this would be most memorable and one of the most easily hotel to be recommended to friends and family on their visit. Everyone at the hotel were very friendly and the service was top notch. The quality of the rooms is excellent and so are the other amenities available. Basic necessities like hot water, food, water and WIFI!! all available. The hotel is strategically located close to Leh market and makes it easy to access. The experience was very much pleasant at the hotel. Each member of the staff is humble, dedicated and very very helpful and ready to help with any assistance required. On our trip we have a great time chatting with the hotel staff and the owner over a cup of tea. All in all, this hotel is HIGHLY recommended for a wonderful experience. I would like to take this opportunity to once again thank the entire staff of the hotel and look forward to visiting in the future and also recommend to all visitors for a wonderful and family-like atmosphere.

We stayed in Hotel Nalanda From 13th of May to 20th of May 2014. Its a good hotel, little far from market.The service in this hotel is excellent. The staff and owner are excellent host.My wife got sick on 2nd day but These people took extra care. The food is very good and is home away from home. They are very accommodating. Mr Thasi and Mrs Tashi are excellent host and They gave company to my wife for market and helped her in purchasing souvenirs also. I will recommend this hotel to all my colleagues and friends.

Room Tip: All rooms have equal view of Shanti Stupa

We were received well and escorted to our room, on arrival .

The double room we were given is good enough to take 2 extra beds on the floor and it also had a sit-out .

Linens are clean. So is the toilet . Room has a got a electric heater and were given enough blankets. Good hot water for bathing etc.

From the room you have a good view of shanthi stupa, a monastery and road to Kardungla , apart from snow capped mountains, though it was a room on the ground floor .

The service is very good, whether it is in providing extra bed or giving tea/coffee in the morning or while serving the food etc.

We took a plan with break fast , but ended up taking dinner also in the hotel . Food quality is very good, delicious and there is a personalized attention - when the bindhi masala ran out, and when my daughters wanted it, they made it in 10 minutes and served , instead of asking us to take some other subzi . They have a few people who manage rooms, restaurant and other work but they are quite dedicated, very courteous and helpful ; they always serve with a smile .

The owner Mr.Tashi is around most of the times and takes care of our needs .

Out of our 4 night stay in Leh , we stayed first in another hotel for 2 nights , which is far from the city, and then went to Nubra and came to Nalanda for 2 nights stay . Turning back , we feel we should have stayed in Nalanda , for the all the four nights, as this hotel is good value for money , near the bazzar and the stay is very pleasant.

Nalanda is near the main bazzar and you can go in a taxi paying Rs 100 or 150 one -way and at the same time is away from the hustle-bustle of congestion .

Room Tip: Even a ground floor room has a good view ; hotel offered us to shift to first floor the next day bu...

Me and my wife had been there in this hotel for almost 6 days 3 weeks back.. We got a warm welcome from the hotel staff as soon we arrived till the day we left. They all greeted us so generously, we felt like we didnt came for the first time, As if they know us. The hotel staff is very friendly and treat their guests with great respect. The owner of the hotel Mr. & Mrs. Tashi are very nice. We had a very nice time knowing each other. Mr. Tashi dropped us to market and even pick us back to hotel when we had to do shopping. Mrs. Tashi went with us for shopping inspite of her busy scheduled day's work and helped to shop very nice crockeries & other stuff in much cheaper rate which are known to localites only.
The facilities and services provided in hotel are the best available in that area.
Cleanliness is very well maintained in the hotel.
Rooms are very good and spacious. They have provided wi-fi in the rooms also recently.
When it comes to food, I can say its the best food served in hotel. The cook of the hotel is master chef.
Whatever food was served, it was so tasty that we never felt like taking food in any restaurant instead of having it in hotel.

In all I can say 100 out of 10 !!

Service - 10/10
ambience - 10/10
location - 10/10
staff - 10/10
food - 10/10

Mr. & Mrs Tashi rocks !! All the best and thanks for everything that made our trip so memorable.

Room Tip: Take the room with balcony facing Leh palace. You can get a beautiful view of Himalayan ranges

Right from the traditional greetings at check-in, we were bowled over by the friendliness and hospitality of the hotel staff.

The hotel is about 15 minutes walk from Leh main market. Rooms are big, very clean and come provisioned with room heater. The service staff is prompt and sincere. The owners and staff made sure our 4 day stay was very comfortable.

They serve multiple cuisines in breakfast and dinner. Food is tasty!

Overall, it is an excellent place to stay thanks to the owners Mr and Mrs Tashi and the entire service staff. Strongly recommended!

My husband and I travelled to Leh Ladakh for a short vacation and we had stayed at Hotel Nalanda . They had taken care of everything for us from accommodation, food, sight seeing and everything. I can very well say that deciding to stay at Nalanda was the best decision we made. It was an excellent experience. They took care of us like family. We felt like we were staying in a relatives house only. We had some altitude acclimatization problem for a day or two and they took care of us so well. They went beyond their call of duty to make sure we had everything we need . The entire team of staff is THE BEST.......we actually miss them after the return and still in touch, we have got good friends too :) . We highly recommend this hotel to everyone who visits Leh. You will not be disappointed.
