Grand Himalaya , is an amazing hotel with warm hospitality, great food and most importantly amazing historic and interior. Each and every corner and wall is dressed stylishly with items that have seen grand adventures, battles and or celebrations. Award winning photos too. Great location, just next to Leh palace in the heart of Leh centre. A must stay and enjoy! Thank you Sajid & Zia Darokhan for your warm welcome and hospitality . We had a lovely time with you both. We look forward to visiting again soon best wishes 🎋

Excellent overall experience! The hotel, while being very close to the main market and Leh palace, is situated in a quiet pastoral setting. Many reviews mention the cultural richness displayed in the lobby, it’s well deserved, a delight! The rooms are spacious with modern bathrooms and great views, my room had nice views of a mountain range, comfortably furnished and slept very well during my stay. I found the service to be excellent, the hotel staff were very attentive, attending to every need. Very oriented to guest comfort and experience. The restaurant staff took very good care of me, and I found the food to be excellent (very well prepared tandoori chicken imo, breakfast as well) I had the good fortune and pleasure to spend an evening with the owners/brothers, Sajid and Zia. Real gentlemen, a generosity of spirit and a genuine hospitality that is rare in today’s world. Deeply moved! The building/hotel has been in their family since 1904 and the first official hotel when Leh was opened for tourism. The hotel is a very personal project and they have put a lot into it, from guest experience to showcasing Ladakhi artifacts and culture in the lobby. The fascinating stories behind the artifacts gave me an interesting insight into the region, it’s history and their family, I was thankful for the opportunity. Much appreciated! Enjoyed my time there very much.…
i found western style mattress very welcoming since altitude acclimatization takes time often spent in the bed. room was spacious and balcony faced the highest pick in the area. i even was able to go to the roof and take morning panoramic shoots with rising sun. bathroom was adequate with large shower space. only issue is limited number of english speaking staff and Indian only breakfast. one unexpected issue was requesting room make up, if you don't ask you don't get it, leaving electronic entry key behind to facilitate it was also peculiar and there is no safety box in the room.
I visited leh during the month of June. Leh was chilli. However rest leh is quite beautiful. Hotel grand himalaya is a heritage hotel with lots of antique displayed. I highly recommend this hotel for staying at Leh.
