“Good friendly stay.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2009

A pretty and very pleasant hotel. The Kaal had plenty of charm and a staff that could not do enough for you. Beer was difficult to find in Leh but armed with a few rupees one of the waiters raced off on his bike and came back 1/2 an hour later weighed down with bottles.The food was excellent and everything was spotlessly clean. The hotel was nearly empty which was a shame for them. Its probably a 2 star hotel and very good value at that.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2008

We were booked into this hotel by our Delhi based travel agent and stayed 4 nights. The hotel is very attractive and features a lot of traditional carved wood. Our room was furnished in a very basic style, but was spacious, clean and had a private back balcony as well as a front balcony. The bathroom had a shower but no tub, with modern fixtures. There was no phone in the room, but there was a TV. The staff were extremely pleasant/helpful and the food was delicious. They even brought our dinner up to us on a tray when we returned after the dinner buffet had closed!

The hotel is just a short taxi ride from the center of Leh, and the going rate at the time was 100 rupees.
