I always have a predilection for family-owned businesses. Raku Guest House somehow remember me of home and feels nice. Also, it is a fine example of a family working together to make the business successful. I agreed with all the other reviews written before me so I will be brief. Everybody speaks nice English and they are a very helpful source of info about the nearby attractions. They have a car and offer transport services to the airport or to the beginning of the Markha trek among other places. I left my luggage with the heavy and bulky items in the Guest House and trek the Markha Valley in a lightweight backpacking mode (under 10kg pack weigh). Summarizing, Raku Guest House is a fine back paper friendly guesthouse maybe a little bit more expensive than others but totally worthy.

You could find many guest houses in Leh, this one stands out for its pricing, homely food, very suggestive and helping staff, not to mention very resourceful - and its expanding with more rooms- lovely garden - also have their own veggie produce- rooms are very cozy - solar water heater provides hot water - very well maintained and non smelly- kudos to the owners and their untiring efforts in keeping all the 17 of us (school friends) comfortable. A must stay.

Highly recommend if you want to stay in a quiet, peaceful place close enough to the town centre of Leh to be able to walk there. -The hotel- Reliable solar-heated hot water, cosy clean rooms in a beautiful Ladakhi building. Western toilets. The gardens are just stunning. So peaceful having breakfast or afternoon tea in the gardens, with the sweeping views of the mountains. This immediately puts you at peace. We didn’t eat the food, however we were told the food is vegetarian. Excellent hot tea. -The location- 15mins walk to central Leh with the shops and cafes. Has stunning 180 views of the mountains. Only 15mins from the airport. -The people- Very helpful, courteous, good service.

My second stay at Raku and I highly recommend it. Rooms are spacious, very clean with comfortable beds. Hot water and wifi works well, a 10 minute walk away from the main town area. Family is very hospitable and able to help with your queries/travel needs. Food is great too!
