We came to Greenvilla on somebody's recommendation and loved every moment. It is a nice little cosy quaint guesthouse which exudes warm hospitality. It is a family run enterprise and one can feel the warmth of home.The rooms are of decent size and the view from the rooms are amazing. The rooms are simple, clean and with basic amenities. There is a lovely terrace where you can sit under the starlit night sky. The food is home cooked, fresh and delicious, the vegetables come straight from the garden. The hosts are very helpful, the communication was prompt and effective. They provided valuable tips to make our visit to Leh worthwhile. We highly recommend this place for a lovely stay in Leh.
Home away from home

We stayed overall 8 nights at Green villa as part of a long Ladakh itinerary.
Green villa is located just 10 minutes walk from the main market - excellent location away from the noise and traffic, while easy to get to the town centre for shops and restaurants.
Green villa is a small guesthouse (~10 rooms) surrounded by a lovely garden where they grow many vegetables and plenty of flowering plants too! The hosts are super friendly and helpful accommodating our various requests!
The kitchen cum traditional dining room is lovely where delicious home cooked dinner is served with fresh garden vegetables, roti, dal and rice or ladakhi cuisine such as momo and skiu. The breakfast was composed of toasts, alu paratha and homemade apricot jam to die for, and some fruits.
The rooms are on the ground floor and 1st floor (preferred), simple, clean and nicely furnished, attached bathrooms with basic amenities and hot water and some rooms open on to a terrace. Electricity is from 7-11 pm as in most places and wifi may work sporadically. The only thing that we can suggest they improve is the quality of mattress/bedding in some rooms.
If we return to Ladakh, well definitely stay in Green villa again to enjoy the incredible hospitality!
We loved our stay here

We recently visited Leh and surrounding areas and chose to stay here . Initially stayed here for 2 days and then for one more additional day on our return journey. Rinchen was super accommodating esp considering the fact that our plan kept on changing and we checked in pretty late both times. The food here is Amazing!! were regret not eating here the first 2days .
We were a total of 6 people including 2 teenagers.we felt safe and comfortable here:)
Would I stay here again- at the drop of a hat!! highly recommended.
The only issue we faced was the noise created by a few bikers who were staying on the same floor,which was also sorted once we requested them to lower their volume. Rest everything couldn't have been more perfect.Rinchen also has 2 super cute kids and stays on the property. Jullay Rinchen :) for all the warmth and hospitality..
Great journey in ladakh

Me and my father went to ladakh for the first time. Was Looking for a guest house and found Green Villa on chubi road in leh. I got really interested because of the owner and manager Rinchenji who was a lovely, caring lady. Reaching the guest house we met rest of her family members who are very nice and hospitable. Ours was a 7 days trip covering local sightseeing to the monasteries,palaces , Nubra valley hunder stay at ladakh summer camp, turtuk village visit, pangong tso stay for one night. The car facility has been arranged beforehand and we thoroughly enjoyed the travel to each places. Coming back to the guest house, which is the centre of attraction at least for me. Tucked away from the humdrum of the main market of leh city yet close by, it was placed in a very serene and quiet atmosphere. A sprawling area with garden, farming area, apricot trees, poppler trees studded in a line around the house with a stunning backdrop of the mighty Himalayas,accentuated the beauty and tranquility of the place. Everyday home cooked meal and special home made apricot jam was always there for us. We also got to interact with other guests coming from different parts of world. All were lovely. Stay was excellent. I have promised Rinchenji that I will come back soon to her place. Leh is absolutely a very beautiful and unique place and anyone visiting should make a stay in Green villa guest house run by a lovely family who are very generous in their hospitality. Thanks

We were a group of three ladies from Thailand. We stayed in Green Villa Guest House in July,2018. The place, you feel home. It is small guest house but that is enough. The manager was very kind. We arrived late afternoon which is time to take a rest. We were hungry so he told the staffs to cook for us even it is not lunch or dinner time. The manger family were so friendly and helpful. The staffs were friendly and helpful too. We were happy in this place. The only problem is internet connection but I believe it is not the problem only in this place. I think it is all around Leh. Thank you from Thailand.
