“Quality and well-located hotel in Leh”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

I spent five nights at this hotel in various rooms (due to overnight trips in Ladakh). All of the rooms were clean, housekeeping was very good. The dogs can be a bit noisy at night and it starts to get a little loud in the early morning (people arriving / leaving, cars, cows) so earplugs will be helpful. This is valid for all of Leh and India though ;-). The rooms have a lovely view of the mountains.

Leh market is a slow five minute stroll from the hotel. Just walk down the street, take the shortcut just pass the district magistrates house (near the hill where the dogs sit).

The staff are very friendly and attentive. A big thank you to the management and the staff that serve the meals in the restaurant and on the lovely terrace. Breakfast is good. We only had a couple of meals and they were fine. You can definitely get better food in Leh but the hotel is not a bad option if you are tired or just don't want to leave the hotel. A bottle of mineral water costs 30 rupees a bottle (20 rupees in the shops). The hotel is equipped for people with altitude sickness including having flasks of emergency oxygen.

The hotel has Wifi although it didn't work once while we were there (also a general problem in Leh not an issue of the hotel).

Take: a torch for the occasional power outages (there is an emergency lamp in each room) and to find your way back to the hotel after dark.

Room Tip: First floor room overlooking the terrace

The hospitality is excellent. I would specifically like to point out the service of Mr. Ram who was simply outstanding. All the people were very helpful and understand how to serve you better. The food was good and the breakfast was delicious. They also serve it on the table in the lawn area and prepare after you have ordered it, making it hot and delicious to have it. The rooms are very good and properly cleaned. Room service is very fast and efficient. Well located with good views from the room window. Leh market is just 10 mins walk from the hotel. I strongly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a great stay in Leh.

Room Tip: First floor rooms give a better view

Rooms are neat and clean; food is average but clean.The manager and all the staff are eager to help and genuine in their hospitality. We stayed in multiple rooms as we we were travelling out every other day- but there were no problems. Central heating is a boon especially when the temperature dips in the night! Another advantage is that is walking distance from the Leh market.

Its a very neat and clean hotel with all the amenities including oxygen... Food is good and we loved their paneer pakoras with evening tea.... We stayed their multiple nights and had to alter our plans at the last minute and hotel manager & staff was very cooperative .....
Leh market is walking distance from the hotel.

Positives - Neat n clean hotel, friendly and caring staff, reasonably priced

Negatives - a) Food was nothing great (taste wise.. hygienically it was ok) better not go for American Plan if you stay here (there are lots of very good eating options in Leh City), b) far from Town Centre - I think abt 1.5 kms.. its not a walking distance at that altitude.. you can go for dining or shopping on your own.. you will need a vehicle c) no great views from your room/hotel

In the first place...Leh is a lovely place,small,so not many options.We booked thru SOTC,so we did not actually choose this hotel. But, it is like a 3 star property, very welcoming and Ladakhi ambience.The jewel in the crown is the smiling and everready to help staff,right from the manager to the waiters. they guide u really unbiased about the climate,acclimatisation and the markets etc.Do take their advice-it really helps.Nice small garden maintained around and clear view of the snow clad peaks from the window.Nice walk in the curving lane around this hotel with smiling Ladakhi kids is worth it.City market is about 1km from there- everything available there.Rooms are comfortable and clean,....all in all....a Memorable Stay !!!

Room Tip: Although all rooms are good with a lovely view,but rooms facing the front have a little less privacy...
