The Omasila Hotel provides a degree of luxury not normally expected in towns such as Leh where the average price of a basic room in a guest house is in the 200-400 rupee range. For 2000 rupees, you get a very comfortable and nicely decorated room with luxuries such as a rug and even a shower curtain (in some rooms); plus of course a telephone and television with the BBC and CNN. The beds are comfortable and come with warm blankets (not always needed). For this amount of money, you get hot running water on demand and a reasonably constant supply of electricity.
The views from the back rooms are stupendous - snow capped mountains in the distance. The garden is delightful - you can just sit there and admire the view under the apple tree.
The staff are eager to please and very helpful and a complementary transfer to and from the airport makes for a good deal for those not on a tight budget (by Indian standards).
