“The finest lodging in our 2 months of travel”
Reviewed 29 October 2011

My wife and I spent 5 days in a most beautiful second floor corner room with amazing views of the Himalayas. The proprietress was generous and kind, the sheets were clean (a rare event in India) and the food was excellent and eaten in common with a group of delightful people. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: The second floor corner room was amazing (although a little more expensive).

This is one of the most hospitable places that I have stayed at. The owners are very friendly and the staff is equally quick in meeting your requirements. Although it was summer at Leh for the locals, it was quite chilling for us. Hence we kept on requesting for hot water bags almost 2-3 times a day, to which they attended every time for all 7 days that we stayed. The best part is that the vegetables that are cooked are very fresh and inorganically grown in the guest house premises itself. We could see what the cook plucking them up cooking them in the pan. Running hot water was available for most of the time which was indeed a big plus point. The rooms were clean and well maintained. For the per night stay cost….rooms, arrangement, hospitality, food and overall treatment we received were far better and very comforting. Me and my wife are planning another trip next year to leh and would definitely be staying at Rainbow Guest House.

Room Tip: Ask for 1st floor rooms, they have view of shanti stupa

We were on a budget trip to Ladhak and wanted a clean comfortable places to stay. We were booked at Rainbow Guest House and didn't know what to expect.

What we remember most of this place is the hospitality. The owners are very friendly and make sure you are comfortable. They ensure the rooms are clean and warm. The food served is only vegetarian, but its a good home cooked wholesome meal. Most days we would come back here for our meals.

The place is located close to Leh Market. It about 3 mins walking distance if one used the back entrance

This a family run guest house with about 12 rooms. They have 2 types of rooms and we stayed in both. The lesser priced one is without attached bathroom and no TV, while the slightly higher one has both.
