The room was good neat with clean linen. The bathroom was clean but the hot water supply was intermittent. Wifi is horrible (As with all other places in Leh). But that will give you time to do lot of other things that you are supposed to do in leh :-). The location is good with excellent Eat outs and shops... More

The staff (especially Sharma Ji), were all super courteous and extremely helpful and went out of the way to keep us comfortable. Pretty much anything... More

Located in the centre of Leh and walking distance from the main market, this is a friendly and nice hotel. Although remember there is no parking space for four-wheel vehicles. Bikes can be parked inside at night. The rooms are dark and can get noisy starting very early morning because of a road on one side. Staff is very nice.... More

The hotel is near the market road(~500m). The facilities are good. There is no hot water if you are travelling early morning. Usually hot water is available from 7 am. The staff is very friendly. There are tea/coffee shops nearby. If you are a bike rider - there are lots of rentals nearby. This is around 15km away from leh... More
