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.
