I booked to stay for one night at Nalanda and ended up staying there for five nights instead.
I am giving the hotel a five star rating because the management team went above and beyond in many ways to make us happy. They were helpful in helping us make our itinerary and secure permits and were very fair and reasonable when it came to pricing.
Location is very good and it only takes about 5 minutes to reach most places in Leh. Hotel is also tucked into a pretty quiet and scenic corner.
I see some negative reviews regarding the value for the money but that's because all hotels in Leh are very overpriced on booking and other websites. I highly recommend contacting hotels directly to get a fair price. The fact that Nalanda accommodated me in this area made me quite satisfied.
Lastly, don't expect anything luxurious in Leh. Just because some hotels are listed at $100 doesn't mean it is truly a $100 hotel, especially compared to other cities in India. We checked out a few properties and everything is quite basic - water is not always hot, poor soundproofing, no central heating, etc. As long as you have the right expectations you will be quite happy with your stay.More
