Rooms are nothing like the photos given. Checked out in one day in spite of cancellation charges. Location is good. The market is at walking distance. The hotel staff is also helpful but the rooms are a disappointment. Also during our stay, there was a big group of students staying there which caused a lot of disturbance and did not...

A comfortable place to stay. Rooms are a fair size. Breakfasts were fine. Friendly and helpful staff. Room overlooking the garden rather noisy if people were sitting and talking until quite late. Room overlooking the street-couldn't open curtains due to lack of privacy because of proximity to other buildings and the road. Wifi mostly unavailable.

The food, which is cooked by their special chef was good. It is much better than what you might find at...

The hotel is centrally situated and about a 5 minute walk away from the market! The amenities provided included access to hot water 24x7 for the shower, since...

Rooms are good size. Amenities are good. Location is near market which is the case with most hotels in leh. We had 4 nights stay and the food was terrible. Heena tours is known for its food but this one was a clear let down. We had far better food at nubra valley where availability is a bigger issue. Staff...
