Hotel Kanishka
Ranked #48 of 75 Hotels in Leh
Reviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile

We had to acclamitize in Leh for two days and Kanishka is one of the best places to do that. It has all the facilities and the location is very near to Leh market (15 min walk or a share taxi taking Rs 25 per person to market). They have a garden below where you can enjoy your evening tea along with very good home cooked buffet food in dinner and breakfast. The buffet would have less variety but it's commendable considering the less growth of vegetables and even lower availability of non veg options.
The only issue we had was that we got third floor and since we had just landed in Leh, we were finding in extremely difficult to climb up every day. Also make sure geyser and all are working fine for your room since there is mainly solar power electricity usage in Leh. It will get extremely hot in afternoon if you visit June to September so try to get a west facing room. We spent around 6 days here and would love to visit again due to very friendly and helpful staff.

We came after a long bike trip from Sarchu. Room we got was small. But it was neat. There were no hangers in the wardrobe on asking I got 2.
In Sarchu hot water wont be available hence we can not take shower. But once we reached Leh we found out that in this hotel Hot water is not available in the evening. So we had to wait until next day morning for a shower.
Wifi password was given but there is no Internet. Owner said internet does not work anywhere in Leh. But when we went for lunch to another hotel, we could use their wifi without any issues.
Owner was also not very friendly. Though airport is closer and standard drop rate is 300, he tried to arrange a drop for 400. When I said it is 300 he got angry. I later went to the main road (just 2 mins by bike) and got a taxi from the taxi stand for 300 without any bargain. For me, its not about 100rs, but its about how you treat your customer.

Its very close to the market. You can see a beautiful view of snow claded mountains from the rooms. The hotel service is good and staff is helpful. Rooms are good and clean, not very lavish and not very average. It has a TV with DTH connection which helped us keep entertained on first day when you need to stay back in hotel to get acclimatized. If you have senior people with you, try to grab room on ground floor coz climbing stairs is tiring due to lack of oxygen.Loved the food spread everyday, they included one local dish on 2 of the days and as a variety served chinese cuisine on one of the days. Wifi connection is poor on top floors. They have a very nice garden with variety of flowers.

Room Tip: Try to get room on lower floor, climbing stairs can be tiring.

Great place to be with great food and breathtaking views all around. Slippery roads with lots of snow along with hot tea with biscuits. Still lingering and looking forward for one more visit. Monastery,army museum, local artistic items and dry fruits market are worth mentioning.

Our stay at Kanishk was very good. Jigmith n his staff were friendly n ready to help. Rooms were spacious n clean and comfortable. The rooms on the ground floor had extra beds . Rooms on the second or topmost floor were warmer and you can enjoy opening the curtains and letting in the chill breeze n the sun light.
