We stayed for a week in late Aug at Hotel Kaal and for much of the time we were the only guests at the hotel.

For the positives, the building is ornately decorated and the rooms are spacious and clean. The owner of this property, Sonam is a very dynamic lady. She organized a cultural festival to commemorate the visit of a very senior Llama, whom we got to meet. This was indeed a great treat and privilege. The owners are well connected with the culture and community and we were lucky that it manifested during our stay.

The food at the restaurant is good, but gets repetitive after 2 days and misses the authenticity of local Ladakh cuisine. The staff (restaurant and housekeeping) are friendly. The front desk is not continually staffed and the trek to get some help can get tiring, especially if your room is on a higher floor.

There are significant power outages and the hotel does not turn the DG on, especially with us as the only guest. Internet access in Ladakh is also choppy and therefore not reliable. The rooms provide hot water through the day (which I understand involves effort), but the toiletries provided are very minimal (only 2 small bar soaps, no shampoos).

The hotel is about 2-3km from the main market and one needs to rely on taxi (Rs. 200 each way) for commute.

Overall this is a good property, but you have to accept what is provided as is like being a house guest.

The hotel's affiliate company is the local agent for Yatra. Their Leh representative Namgyl was not as friendly or resourceful as he could have been.

Room Tip: Stay onb the ground floor especially in the early days of acclimatization

We spent a wonderful stay at The kaal hotel , Nice rooms, great host, Though away from city but ideal place. Attention required for bath fittings, FURTHER we missed fan in room following scorching sun outside ! Cultural programme was excellent.. we also loved the delicious food , There are a few hotels at LEH with parking, The kaal have ample safe parking ,

Stayed for 7 days, the stand out about this place is the hospitality of the staff, they are polite, helpful, service is prompt. The food is good, though if u are looking to try something local or ladakhi food this is not your place. Rooms are clean, spacious, bathrooms are clean and modern, though the supply of warm water is a bit irregular. Room service is good. U will need to ask for a room heater if u need one.

The only drawback is that it is located about 2 km away from the market, u either have to hire a cab or indulge in a long walk to get to it.

Room Tip: If u wish to avoid AMS take rooms on the ground floor, but if u prefer the view then go for the higher floors. Go for the old building.
