“Clean comfortable group tour operator's choice”
Reviewed 22 July 2013

Three star standards. Friendly efficient staff. Tends to get crowded as it is a favourite choice of tour operators. Get to the buffet early or late - they will get you hot food if its run out later
Nice terrace to sun yourself. Some rooms have a view of the snow clad mountains

Decent little place. Leh doesnt have opulent hotels, mostly budget fare and this fits squarely in the profile.

The good- 1. Excellent view 2. Near to airport 3. Peaceful, away from the main market 4. Better than average food 5. Cozy rooms 6. Helpful service 7. Clean, well maintained

The bad- 1. Located way off the city, and does not offer a complimentary pick up/drop facility to the market and other places 2. Genset power backup inadequate 3. Food quality inconsistent

You get what you pay for, utimately.

I stayed there for 5 nights, rooms are OK. They dont generator very often. Most of the time online portal do give bookings to this hotel, but its very very very far off from the market. If u are in market till 7.30 or 8 in the evening then probably u will find very difficult to go this hotel. And most of the cab people avoid going to this area, as they dont get any return fare. If u come out of the hotel, unless the hotel people dont call cabs, u cannot find any cab on your own to go to the market. Food was also not upto to the mark. Only plus point is the owner handles the hotel on its own, and charges very less then what is charged in the market.

Room Tip: The standard rooms are not good. U should go for deluxe rooms.

Nice little hotel with basic but good rooms and a good view. We used this hotel as our base camp. Right from the manager, to cleaners/ porters (2 girls) and the restaurant staff - everyone tries their best. Inspite of the harsh conditions - they are always cheerful and that gets your spirits up! Each time we came back from an overnight trip - they gave us a warm welcome and the same rooms for comfort! The cabs take approx 300 to the market. You will have to spend that as the market is not walking distance. The food is average - but served with a smile :-) . The terrace is a nice place to sit and play cards, chit chat. There is free Wifi in the lobby (if i remember correctly)

Room Tip: take the rooms on higher floors as oxygen is scarce in ladhak!

We took the Yatra.com packaged tour program fro Leh. They made the entire group stay in three different hotels next to each other and since I visited all the three hotels I could compare the pros and cons of the various hotels. I would rank Cho Palace as One, The Kaal as second and worst being the Silk Route Inn.
1. Food: The foods are pathetic in all the hotels and they claim there aren’t many vegetables which grow in the neighborhood which is the main reason for this pathetic food quality but that doesn’t justify the distasteful food as the restaurant in the market place serve some mouth watering dishes.
2. Location: Although it’s near to Airport why would anybody want to stay near Airport and not Market Place? You have to and fro to Airport only once whereas Market Place is where you want to retreat for good food, souvenir, Doctors, hospitals, medicine shops. The Skara where all these hotels are located, I couldn’t locate a single store, be it grocery or medicine. The car rate to Market place is 300-500 from Skara so I would prefer to stay around Market Place than Skara
3. Facilities and Service: The people in Leh are helpful and so their service but the managements are pretty unhelpful. The generator used to run only for few hours and. Although the Kaal palace has a room heater both these hotels lack this particular facility. But what distinguishes Cho Palace from the rest is the view. It is surrounded by mountains and sitting on the window you can have a picturesque view of the valley.
The restaurants in the Market place that we tried out are Himalayan Café, Summer Harvest, and Tibetan Kitchen. The dry fruits like apricots and almonds are quite cheap and tasty as well.

Room Tip: The best thing about this hotel is all the rooms have a great view from the window, Although the roo...

We stayed in the hotel for 4 nights in total at different times as we were on the move travelling around in Leh Ladakh. the first 2 nights we had a really good service but other 2 nights the service lacked, may be they took the backseat as we kept coming back to stay with them.
The hotel is not far from the airport and only 10mins from the main market. We preferred as it s away from the hustle bustle and provides good views of the mountains/Leh valley.
The hotel offers free wifi in the lobby area, has open terrace to enjoy the breakfast and tea with those breath taking views. the hotel offers buffet for the dinner but variety is average so we had a la carte.
The rooms and bathroom are basic, would give it 1.5star, housekeeping doesnt seem to get enough time due turn around of guests hence the house keeping lacked in cleaning but can be improved.
On other hand all the staff are polite and helpful, Mr Wangchuk the carer was always polite and professional and easy going and provided good service.
The hotel lacks from all day electricity as per all other reviews but we didint feel it as we were always out touring and in the evening we always had electricity and hot water was never an issue for us as everytime we used hot water it was there due communal hot water tank.
Overall an average hotel, would go back only coz of the service and the views.
