We had made the himalya group of hotels our base as we did 1 night trips to various other places in Leh. Pros: Courteous & helpful staff. Decent rooms. Walking distance from the main market (15mins). Cons: No elevator. Reaching into the rooms on the 2nd floor make you breathless because of the stairs. Delight factor : Got an upgrade to a suite. Tip - Always keep the room windows open as fresh air will help you breathe easy in Leh.
