The place is a little away from the city crowd so it gives a little peace. It has decent rooms which don't offer much of view but you have hot water at all times. The food was not that good and also the service was pretty slow. Nothing really great about the hotel. Everything was just normal.

Thongsal is an overall good hotel with decent rooms and fine management. It is located a bit away (around 15-20 mins walk) from the main city (near the cantonment area) and has a peaceful ambiance. The property is beautiful and has ample greenery inside the campus itself. The food was average as compared to the eating joint in the market.... More

Its a nice hotel. Food is Good. Amenities are good. Worth the stay. We stayed in June 2015. The hotel is near to the Shanti Stupa. Its a little far from the main Leh market. The staff is cordial as well.

I am sure they have completed it by now and that its much more comfortable now. Its a lovely quiet place with a big garden. Away from the main market, this could be a boon or a... More

Thongsal is located very close to the Shanti Stupa making it a very peaceful abode during one's stay in Leh. Being away from the market ensures you aren't bothered by the noise and vehicular traffic. The amenities are basic but provided with much care. The staff is extremely helpful and ensure you have a comfortable stay. The restaurant serves some... More

We had to share the room with a mouse all the time we stayed here. When we told the staff they said the mouse came with the room free of charge... Not funny. The hotel is too far away from the maintown and you have to walk. the breakfast has no variety
