“It's cold in February, but what a great staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2012

I stayed at Omasila both before and after a winter trek in February. Like everyplace else in Leh, except the Grand Dragon, Omasila lacks central heat and running water and has electricity only a few hours in the morning and evening. And it is COLD. Despite that, everyone on the staff turns themselves inside out to do whatever is possible to keep you comfortable, including hot water bottles, buckets of steaming water in the morning, endless thermoses of tea, etc. And always with a smile. A very pleaseant experience under very trying circumstances.

Room Tip: The rooms in the main building were warmer than those in the annex behind the dining room.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2011

Stayed for 4 nights late October 2011. The food was great, the views of the mountains from the hotel constantly changing, and the service was excellent.
Also, the hotel is situated a reasonably easy walk from the main part of the town.
There were many day trip options.
At this time of year, many restaurants and stores that cater to the tourist are closing down for winter.
The Gompas (monasteries) north and south of Leh are a must see. So are the natural beauties - the lakes, mountains and rivers.

Room Tip: Ask for mountain view

If ever in Leh, one must stay at this hotel. Ask in advance to stay at the room up front so you can have a view of the snow capped mountains. Truly paradise on earth.

Room Tip: high floor (2nd floor) front rooms

My friend and I stayed at Omasila recently and despite it being off peak season, the place was fully occupied and it comes as no surprise to note that. Cozy always womb like warm rooms, a very service oriented team that anticipates your needs way before even you think of something, non intrusive yet always at hand with a hot cup of ginger tea or a water bag, Omasila was a delight on cold harsh days. They have a lovely terrace where you can catch great views and the sun as you lounge with a book. The owner makes sure he's around and everything runs smoothly. The food could definitely do with some improvement, however the ever smiling and able team makes up for deficiencies if any.

Room Tip: Choose room no. 4 or the one next to it as they have double windows that keep out the cold

Stayed twice in September. Rooms out near garden. A calf attracted flies but was rustic. Beautiful gardens and excellent food and service. Rooms and bathroom not great. Bedbugs in extra blankets left my wife and friend (in another room) with multiple bites. Convenient.

Room Tip: Try to stay in main building.
