This is the best choice you can have in Leh. Its among the only 2 hotels in Leh which are centrally heated. But this one is close to the only 4-star hotel in Leh. With exclusive beautiful garden on the left as you enter the through the main gate to the reasonably huge Parking space in the front of the hotel.
The restraunts are open all day and also at late nights for the local speciality tea Kehwa if you cant sleep as you have just arrived due to altitude sickness. The rooms have really comfortable beds with heavenly views from the window facing the amazing stok range of greater himalaya range.
The outside lobby has a temperature meter which i haven't seen in any other hotels which read minus 3 when i arrived that night.

The staff is very good & supportive. The service might be not very effective during the offseasons or rush times but the efficiency of the hotel staff is commendable. They take extra care of your needs & trip plannings since the hotel also provides with activities & tour guides with the complete package if the guests are interested. Although there are several tour companies in Leh for such activities.

I had a great time staying there and sugegst everyone to spend a few days at this Hotel when you visit Leh specially if for the first time.

Been there with a group of friends in January 2009 and stayed for 3 nights. It was really nice and I would consider this hotel to be really close to Western international standards...with a twist.
The rooms were nice and of a reasonable size. The view from mine was breathtaking with valleys and mountains all over. The staff was really friendly and seemed to do their best to help us. English language was sometimes limited but a smile and a few hand gestures and everybody gets along.
The food (we had the breakfast buffet) was somewhat limited but in January in Ladakh you don't expect miracles. It was good and tasty, we had nothing to complain about.
Heat... well the hotel is centrally heated which is a real treat over there. But the management shut it down at 11pm every night, to save money I guess. So, depending on your room, temperature could drop a bit. The staff kindly provided us with hot water bottles and we slept like babies.
We were a fairly big group (40+) and the owner was kind enough to invite us for tea in his own home, and this was a great moment.
I will definitely go back there if I have the chance.

We booked with this hotel, and paid the full amount even though they didnt ask for, because we had faith in such a known hotel.
My mother has health issues due to altitude and hence we had to return back earlier.
On asking for the refund, they were really rude and they refused to pay back our money !!

We were shocked at their unprofessional behaviour and surprised as to why couldnt they consider a health issue of the guest.

The Manager was Mr Thakur.

We have traveled more than 20 countries, and being Indians, something like this happening in our own country was really sad.

So please go ahead with this hotel, but if there is an unexpected incidence happening, do not count on this staff ! highly unprofessional, they change their colors.

We've recently returned from a wonderful holiday in Leh. Like other reviewers we were slightly apprehensive about the accommodation but this hotel was fantastic (especially for the area). It was a real treat to return to after a few days trekking to a wonderfully hot shower and a hairdryer!

The staff, especially in the restaurant were very friendly and helpful and the food was excellent - probably some of the best hot buffet food I've had abroad.

The rooms were very spacious with a well equipped bathroom, satellite TV and some of the best views of snow capped mountains. Be prepared for sore hips though if you like a soft bed!

Would definately recommend this hotel.

I recently stayed at The Grand Dragon Hotel in Leh and highly recommend this hotel.
The rooms are clean and comfortable and the decor is modern. My room faced the southern mountain ranges so I had a fantastic uninterrupted view of of snow capped mountains.

There is wireless internet access in the foyer and restaurant area (great if you have an iphone) and all rooms have cable TV and LCD screen (CNN, BBC and movie channels etc) and excellent reception.

The restaurant is very good and have a comprehensive menu.
The staff are very friendly and keen to help.

No doubt the best hotel at the top of world!
