Spent 3 nights at this very comfortable property when it was considered off season in Ladakh.
Large comfortable rooms with clean and cosy linen, great hot water and water pressure even in sub zero temperatures made it a very welcome room to come back to after a cold and dusty day in the field photographing wildlife . The staff was friendly and helpful and the food very good.
I look forward to returning to Ladakh and will definitely be staying here again.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Gawaling. The hotel has elegant ornate architecture which fits in with the style of the Buddhist monasteries.

From the hotel room window, we had breathtaking views of the Himalayas.

Very good selection at the breakfast buffet. We loved the piping hot chole battura.

Another positive was the absence of plastic bottles. Water was served in glass bottles.

Best place to stay for solo travellers. Nice ambience, great food with plenty of options available. The staff was very polite and helped me plan trip around ladakh. The hotel also helped me adjust to the altitude and they have oxygen masks available at the hotel premises for emergencies.

We paid almost 100.- Euro per night including breakfast. We stayed 3 nights. After the first night we got another room as there was almost no WiFi in our room and the TV was not working. As there were just 2-3 other guests they didn't provide a breakfast buffet. The selection was very poor and they were not able to serve what we ordered (milk coffee instead of black coffee and they didn't know what fried eggs are). They didn't clean the room and so we had no fresh water and no toilet paper. On the last morning there was not even warm water after we let the water run for at least 10 min. At least they gave us 15% discount due to their bad service but it's still a scandal how much we paid for such a poor service.

Look no further as you have arrived at your Leh stay destination, the Gawaling hotel.

The architecture and design seamlessly blend traditional Ladakhi elements with modern comfort, creating an ambiance that is both cozy and captivating. The rooms are spacious, impeccably clean, the comfortable beds and thoughtful amenities ensure a restful stay.

Anchuk the proud owner of the hotel and his warm-hearted family have created a haven that encapsulates the essence of Ladakhi hospitality, and my stay here was nothing short of astonishing!

In total, I have spent almost two months living at Gawaling hotel and Anchuk, Dechen and Namgyal became a family to me.

Anchuk and his wife Dechen are a gracious hosts and an incredible source of knowledge about Ladakh's history, culture, and spirituality. Many times they took time to sit with me and share their insights, accompanied me to diffferent monasteries and even invited to attend prayers performed by Buddhist monks at their house, making my stay feel like a true cultural exchange.

The level of personalized attention and care I received at Gawaling Hotel was unparalleled. Anchuk and his family's dedication to ensuring their guests have an authentic and unforgettable experience is truly heartwarming.

I left with a deep appreciation for Ladakhi culture, a sense of tranquility, and a promise to return to this remarkable family and astonishing place again.
