The Residency is a lovely, comfortable hotel with a very helpful and enthusiastic staff. The hotel arranged for us to visit Nubra and Kargil, as well as many of the local attractions. All these arrangements worked smoothly and comfortably. The location of the Residency gives beautiful views towards the Stok range and it is in walking distance to the main Bazar in Leh with its many restaurants and interesting shops. Walking the other way takes you easily into the countryside and Shanti Stupa. The restaurant at the Residency is beautifully decorated as is the Foyer and public areas. The bedrooms are airy, clean and comfortable and the bed linen of good quality. The food in the restaurant is of the quality you would expect from a 4 star hotel. Before finishing I must again praise the staff for their kindness, help and advice. All in all an excellent choice for a stay in Leh and a great base to explore the local region.
