“Luxury at Leh!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2014

If you visit Leh and are looking for luxury, then this one is undoubtedly the best hotel. Even in off-season, their service and hospitality were simply outstanding. This is probably the only hotel that operates round the year even in extreme winter [they have indoor heating]. Their restaurant is pretty good and particularly their staffs are truly cordial. If I visit Leh again, I would certainly choose this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for mountain view room

We were in Leh around Christmas and went to the restaurant of this Hotel for lunch as no other restaurant was open that time in the market. I was pretty surprised that this was open in sub-zero temperature. We got our food quite quickly and was decent. Tried some Ladakhi dishes and were good. The Hotel premises were very clean and properly maintained even during off season. The area of the Hotel is quite large.

We'd been camping in the mountains for six nights, so unwashed and exhausted we arrived at the Grand Dragon. The hotel is clean and smart, and the room we had was spacious, warm and very comfortable. The bathroom was very nice indeed, with underfloor heating and good toiletries.
The restaurant is excellent, and we enjoyed huge portions of Chinese, Indian and Continental foods. The staff are a little over-attentive, but it's meant to ensure you're getting what you want. Do try the chicken satay (enormous), the spring rolls (big enough for a main), the sesame chicken and the garlic nan breads - mmm!
The hotel is about ten minutes' uphill walk to the town centre, but it's worth the effort (remember you're at 3000m) because there's plenty to see - turn right when you get there and head for the market, which provides some great photo opportunities.
It's so comfortable that we returned to it after two nights in a village way up in the mountains - again, it proved a very welcome rest.
The only downside is the staff can be a little disorganised in their rush to be helpful, and our 5.15 wake up call didn't happen. Luckily we woke up in time to grab some toast before our flight to Delhi.

Room Tip: They're all good, but a room facing the mountains is a nice bonus. We asked (cheekily) for an up...

I was in Ladakh early this month and stayed in this hotel which I enjoyed as it was far better than other properties I've used in Leh. The staff were always helpful and the bedrooms very comfortable.
The meals I took in the hotel were all good and main courses for dinner would almost feed two people.
As I was on business I would have liked a more reliable WiFi service but this was only available in the reception/lounge area.
The location is reasonable with just a short uphill walk into town, which of course assists in the altitude acclimatisation process. The bedrooms have advice on the acclimatisation process which is useful.
i'd like to thank the staff for making my stay(s) there enjoyable.

Room Tip: Ask for south facing rooms for fantastic views across the Indus Valley towards Stok Kangri (6,121m).
