“Padma - excellent introduction to Leh”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Only spent my first night in Leh at the Padma as they were fully booked. It was a great place to start - airport pick up arrived even though I had got the flight times wrong. On arrival I was greeted with ginger tea which is supposed to help against altitude sickness. As recommended I spent the first day doing nothing which was not a problem as the views from the restaurant are fantastic - you can see over to Stok Kangri. Staff were friendly and checked to make sure you were dizzy or feeling ill because of the altitude. I organised trip to Pangong Lake through the Padma and cannot speak highly enough of the driver. All in all a good place to stay and good location - it feels rural - the garden is beautiful but it is only 10 minutes walk or less from the town centre.

Room Tip: I had a room in the hotel but you can book a room in the old guest house which is cheaper - they we...

Stayed for 5 days at this guest house in early October. Low fare Airport pickup is available if required in advance. The room was spacious, parket floor with TV that we didn't even need. But the hot shower was not available on the first 2 nights and the electricity was down from time to time. the internet was also down that time. However, the owner is resourceful to provide tips on things and around. The staffs were helpful.They provide tour services to monasteries, gompas, himalayan silk route, Pangong lake, Nubra valley and surely, trekking.
The rooftop cafe offers spectacular view overlooking the garden, the himalayan and hemis. You Should try breakfast there, enjoy the view, the morning sun and meet people from around the world.
Very recommended place where you feel at home.

Room Tip: 2nd floor room to get full sunrise and better view

Have spent a total of 5 nights i in the Padma and felt as comfortable as safe. We appreciated the strong heating in the room every morning and evening, the warm bed and the ceiling all around pleasant atmosphere in the Padma. The views from the terrace are Resto in all directions a dream.

We stayed at the Padma [the hotel part] for three nights in mid October before starting a trek, and one night when we returned. We liked the location, with an excellent view of the mountains and a lovely garden. The room was fine. We enjoyed the hot water and central heating, and survived the power cuts. Free wifi was a welcome extra, although it only worked intermittently.

Room Tip: Decide whether to stay in the hotel [relatively expensive but better facilities] or the guest house...

Hi, Nice place, very similar to the Oriental Guest House, but south of leh. Easy to reach the market, a little less pleasant to walk there in the dark. Hot water always available, no-trills. The option is ok, but not the most convenient thing ever, there are better priced options north of town. Staff is pleasant and nice. you wont have any trouble here. .

My husband and I had a wonderful three nights staying at Padma Guesthouse.Staff were so friendly and very helpful, as they also helped us organise our trip and acommodation to the Nubra Valley.
Accommodation was basic but very clean, with lovely hot showers....always!
The restaurant was great, especially through the day though a bit nippy at night, so rug-up.Food was very good, lovely and fresh from the beautiful garden on site.
Just loved their new family addition....Little Puppy!
