“Good place to stay in Leh”
Reviewed 23 June 2010

We 4 friends planned a vacation in Leh.After reaching Leh after a tiring journey from Srinagar we started looking for decent accommodation in Leh City. We saw hotels like City Palace,Fakira but somehow could not get what we were looking for. Finally we reached Hotel Namgyal Palace and it looked beautiful from outside.Reception at hotel was also nice.After some negotiations we could got a good deal and we selected this hotel for our 6 nights stay.
We were bit surprised and embarrassed when 4 girls arrived to pickup our luggage as we are not used to see girls in such job however hotel manager told us that this is the way in Ladakh region and we need feel bad about it.
Rooms were nicely done and comfortable to stay however trouble started next day when we got up little late and found that water in bathrooms was chilled.When we inquired with reception we were told that hot water is available between 6 AM to 8 AM as there is only one boiler in hotel and water in same gets over by 8 AM and it takes another 2 hrs to water to boil again.However on our request they provided us bucket of hot water.
In evening we visited hotel's restaurant and again we were bit surprised to know that they provide only buffet option and do not have menu to choose and again we need to negotiate with them to provide us some dishes as we did not wanted whole buffet.
We stayed for 6 nights in this hotel and felt even though the services were not excellent but hotel management was very accommodating our requests.I would definitely recommend this hotel to people who look for hotel accommodation with decent budget option.

We went with friends for a weeks trip to Leh. It was still quite cold in mid May. In standard double room first night. For rest of week in larger suite room. Great room with amazing view. Bathrooms adaequate for Indian hotel. No central heating (only one hotel in Leh has central heating). Warm water between 6 and 8 am + pm. Being mid May it was stiil preseason and cold. Thermals where essential. Hotel food excellent. Some chaotic service at times and I as lucky as my friends spoke Hindi. English very basic. If you in Leh don't expect much luxury and a friendly chaos. The scenery makes up for any inconveniences.

Stayed for 12 days recently in a rather cold Leh (temp -10 C at night). The hotel staff are very friendly and extremely helpful. There are only two suites but they are worth the extra cost. I think the rooms were Rs 3900 (£65 per night). Standard room Rs 2600 (£40). Room service is available but one has to know what to order as there is no menu card (or at least there was none when we stayed). There is no restaurant as such though there is place to have breakfast. Centre of town is a five minute walk with some good places to eat. Hot water is available only between 6-8 am and pm.

Date of visit: May 3, 2010 to May 07, 2010.

We were being received at the airport by the hotel staff and the hotel is 10 minutes away fro the Leh airport. The room service was excellent. It has got hot water service from 6 to 8 in the morning as well as in the evening which was very much useful for a cold place like Ladakh. The foods were also very good. The hotel staff were very co operative and friendly. We liked and enjoyed the stay very much.

The experience was really good.
Room service was excellent.
Food was also great.
One problem was that the hotel did not have a running internet connection.
And hot water was available 2 times a day only.
