Worth Staying, Peaceful, friendly Staffs and importantly, they are not Money minded and calculative of each and everything, they don't mind for payment (or) behind asking us for money. The stay at Shaolin Ladakh Hotel had made us to think like stay at our Home. Very comfortable spacious rooms, neat & clean Bathrooms similar to 4 Star Hotels. We were lucky to see Snowfall in the Hotel area during our Stay on 17th & 21st April 2021.

We stayed 4 times in this guesthouse as we came back from one of our treks. Nice garden, nice rooms (especially the deluxe one) and helpful staff. The guesthouse is about 20 minutes walk from the city centre.

Shaolin is a wonderful hotel run by a local Ladakhi family. Our stay here, was made memorable by their hospitality. Since we visited Leh without making any plans, Tani, the youngest member of the family and who usually runs the place was kind enough to provide us with all the information about the Ladakh region and also connected us to a bikers group. The rooms and toilets are clean and offer an amazing distant view of the Tsemo monastery. Also, there is an outdoor garden, where you can sit, relax and also have a bonfire on chilly evenings. Cheers to Team Shaolin Ladakh.

Nice place to acclimitise in Leh. The boys where very helpfull When ever we had a question. Beautiful terrace to have breakfast or just want a place to relax. Walking down town takes about 20 minutes. Going back up recommand to take a cab, costs IRP 200,-. Electricity wasn’t always availeble. WiFi could be better.

We stayed overall 4 nights in two times. The staff was really welcoming, the breakfast were good and we felt home. Also, compared to other hotels nearby that are more expensive, Shaolin Guest House is a very good deal. We enjoyed spending our time there and we managed to charge our batteries before and after our trek.

We’re a young couple from the UK travelling India. We stayed at the Shaolin Guest House for 4 nights in July. It’s a special place with a great atmosphere which is down to the family which run the Guest House. We felt at home here as soon as we arrived - the family (especially Danny and the boys) could not have been more attentive and welcoming. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The beds have proper duvets. The grounds of the hotel are relaxing - our favourite part was our morning coffee in the garden. The walk into Leh was fine for us - we didn’t need a taxi as only took 15 minutes. It was a nice chance to stretch our legs! We ate at the hotel on three nights - the food was prepared by the boys and was good. It was tricky to get hot water so we did have a fair few cold showers. The internet wasn’t reliable either. We loved our stay at Shaolin - thank you.

We booked this shaolin guest house online.the day we were on flight we got a call from this hotel that they need to shift us to some other guest house as shaolin might be closed due to bad climate.We believed them as we had never visited Leh before and our flight was about to take off.so they allotted some other guest house where there was no tap water,leave alone hot water! No need to mention there was no heater either.I fell ill... first headache,then fever then blood from nose and finally vomiting.we had booked shaolin after reading reviews that owner helps n guides when ever needed but here owner didn't show his face once.the only help I got was from the cook...I gave her my watch and tip for being there if I may need help.After going through all this hell, we booked Grand Dragon and enjoyed rest of the part of our trip.

Stayed here for 3 nights. Kindly note that this is a guest house kind of accommodation and not a Hotel! Being a guest house the service is very limited like breakfast and dinner is only served if you have made the booking or have informed them in advance. You cannot get anything to eat/drink in between as their kitchen remains closed apart from those time. Rooms are good and spacious. Overall a good place to just sleep overnight. The owner takes care of all travelling and is co-operative but in case he is busy/un-available then the caretakers (2 guys who cook and also takes care of room cleaning) are not very interested to work apart from their routine Job.Most of the time they are busy listening to music and dancing inside the kitchen!! This is not near t the market in the sense you cannot walk and reach the market as it takes a good 15 to 20 mins walk that too uphill. You need to shell out 200 rupees (one way) to go to the market using any vehicle!!! Recommended only for solo or travelers without children.
