Clean and nice hotel with a nice family that runs it and great staff. Away fro the hustle and bustle of Leh, yet walkable. Quiet place with a lovely garden anf beatiful flowers, cherry , apricot and apple trees.
I travelled with my friends in 2018 and had a great time. This is one of the cleanest hotels in Leh and is located in a quiet and peaceful area of Leh surrounded by local houses. They also arranged for all my sight seeing tours
We stayed here as a group of 2 couples for the first 2 nights of our trip and it was an extremely great expereience for all of us. The rooms were neat and clean and the food was awesome. However the best part was the professional staff who are very well committed in ensuring that the guests have best of their time. They will guide you in terms of what needs to be done to settle down in first few days to get use to the high altitude climate. Further we also had a medical emergency and the staff arranged for the cab in no time. Will definetly recommend this hotel to everyone
We stayed at the hotel for 4 nights as part of a pre-arranged tour the good: -The actual building including hotel rooms etc were of excellent quality- clearly a new and well built building. -the ‘boss’ or owner/possibly owners son was great; able to speak English and we could easily convey any issues we had. - food was generally good. Dinner was included, and oddly on some days we were allowed to choose what we wanted from a menu, and on others we were just served up random food without being given a choice. The bad: -on many occasions we would come down to reception, when the main boss was not working, and in his place would typically be a young boy who spoke no English. Even something as basic and common in a hotel like asking for a a towel, or to see the lunch menu was impossible and we would have to wait until the owner was back on shift. If you do not know local language, conversation is problematic -no stock of bottled mineral water for guests. On two days, we were told there was no water despite this being available on the menu and despite local shops down the road having many bottles. foreign tourists are not advised to drink local water when travelling India so this was an issue for us. also no stock of soft drinks on the menu, surprising given they were readily available in the town. -switching off electricity: I am supportive of any cost cutting efforts or plans to reduce electricity usage, however when we have paid for a hotel with electricity and wifi, I would expect that when we come back after a days sightseeing and are the only guests, that the power would be turned on. Instead it was a constant daily battle to turn the power on when we returned such that we could use the wifi. After a days trekking, coming back to a bathroom with no light to be able to shower isn’t ideal. -noise: we chose this hotel as it was ‘away from the hustle and bustle of the main market’, however on day 1 there was a wedding. We were pre-notified of this, and did not mind the owners daughter using her own hotel to get married, and we were ok with the noise that evidently came with this. However, allowing screaming children up into the floors where people were sleeping, who proceeded to ring in-room doorbells at gone midnight was again a disappointment. On our last night, we had a different room with front facing balcony and no key for the lock. did not make us feel comfortable and We therefore had to move into a third room which was directly above the kitchen and near an area where there was another party outside until midnight. The rooms are great, as is the owners son/boss, so there is potential for this to be a good place to stay, if it can fix the issues with service. …
I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel in September 2019. The hotel has a good lobby and garden space where you can relax, read a book and enjoy the weather. The rooms really appealed to me because they were modern, clean and spacious which is rare to find in Leh. The staff is really friendly and go extra mile to help be it your taxi requirement or restaurant suggestions. You can easily walk to the market, it is a downhill walk of 10 minutes. If you are confused and want a decent priced hotel with modern services book this one without a doubt.
