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.
