Kargil is not a place one would choose to stay, but it is the most convenient stop on the road from Srinagar to Leh. Many new lodgings are in construction, and the place is dusty and noisy. This is a relatively new hotel, but you would think it opened last week judging from the unfinished fittings and the dust and building materials around. The rooms are solid, spacious and comfortable, many with river views, and the bathroom is good, although HW not always available. We had some power cuts (found this is not unusual all around Kashmir/Ladakh). It's a bit out of town, and not a nice place to walk around in due to construction mess and roaming groups of young men.
The service/attitude is a problem. They act as if they are doing you a big favour even to check you in. We were offered twin room though we booked (and pre-paid) for a double. Restaurant service is sloppy although food is pretty good. At the end we were overcharged and had to argue about the bill. If the service (and general finishing/cleanliness) was improved this would definitely be one of the best places to stay in Kargil.
