“Awesome place, friendly people, good service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2010

We went to Leh this summer with one more couple. Our rooms were already booked and we directly went to the hotel. We were given a very warm welcome, and complimentary tea on arrival. I was take to a room, from which i didn't like the view much. After i raised my concern, the room was promptly changed to a room with a better view without any questions.
The rooms were clean, and cozy. The bathroom was also clean, and was maintained properly every morning.
The location is also ok, as the market is at a walking distance. But the walk is uphill.
The rates are reasonable, and seem like value for money.
One thing needs special mention is the helpful nature of the people at reception. I want to thank one of the managers called Zubair for helping us throughout in preparing our itinerary, and arranging taxi for us, and taking good care. I needed a bike on rent and he arranged for that too from one his friends at a very reasonable rate.

The only downside was the cost of food. But as the market is quite close, one can go till there and choose from wide range of options.

In all, a good place to stay, and value for money hotel.

This is a new local style 35 room hotel on the main road (Old Road Sheynam)towards the center of the town. About a 15 minute walk to the beginnings of the market (uphill). We had a wonderful roof top room with windows on 3 sides, open to the cool breeze (3 rooms up there). Best was the roof terrace with chairs and tables under an shady awning to temper the hot sun. Temples and snowcapped peaks on all sides. Breakfast in the room/terrace if desired to watch the sun light up the peaks. Great service all around (staff migrates to Goa hotels in the winter); generator for when the Leh town electricity fails; clean and comfortable. Nice small gardens under apricot trees. In the evening the sounds of a creek over the wall. Food was tasty & varied (buffet style) each day. Ask for room towards the back since street front rooms will be noisy. Call ---. Manager is Salim Khan. With more than 30 trips to India under my belt this was one of the more enjoyable hotel experiences...not an Oberoi but well worth the $70US
