The hotel is close to the market but away from all the rush. It's not the luxurious places or in anyway different / unique. The food is decent and the hotel is accessible as it's closer to the main road (close to the prayer wheel on the circle/gas station). It more of a bed-n-breakfast place. Since we came from Pangong...

The front desk staff is very bad and can deny you a room any time, or can charge you triple the rate what they actually sell on. They are robbers in disguise .

Worst housekeeping staff. Reason probably is the wages paid to them are very low. The moment you check in, you are asked not to keep any valuables in the room. And then you start wondering what kind of a royal treatment is this in this so called palace. In spite of having a word with the owner of the hotel... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Experience the traditional stay with a difference. Enjoy a luxurious stay on the Roof of the World, in a hotel surrounded by picturesque mountains amidst a garden dotted by apple & apricot trees. The design of the hotel and the interiors are emphasized on wood and many intricate designs and decorations are etched on wood which are inspired by old Ladakhi tradition and makes you feel at once one with the land. The hotel is just a few minutes' walk from Leh Bazaar and yet is far away from the maddening crowds and serves as an ideal getaway to the trans-Himalayan kingdom of Ladakh. ... more   less
