Hotel Chube is OK OK types of hotel in Leh but in that price I believe there are other better options available around. Rooms were quite damp.

Leh is the major town of Ladakh region and offers wide variety of accommodation options. Leh offers plenty of places to stay which suits wide form of pockets. Right from the economic to expensive and luxurious, Leh has it all. We landed up at Leh in the middle of peak tourist season and unfortunately most of hotels were closed for us. After a lot of on the spot search, we finally got success to find an accommodation for us. It was Hotel Chubi and we were offered just 2 days of accommodation because after that Hotel Chubi or Hotel Chube was also booked completely for weeks to come :)… Read below for the complete review –
Please read the comments below the article for much more updated feedback for the hotel by other people who stayed up there in recent time as this article is dated 2011 and can only act as a bit of reference point for you.
Hotel Chubi, Leh – Ladakh
First and foremost, as my trademark saying goes pictures are better than thousand words. Take a look at the pictures of Hotel Chubi below –
Booking can be done by calling Mr. S. Rigzin Chubi at one of these numbers
We got double bedded rooms (2 in number) at the price of Rs 800 per day. I guess the charges were too much as compared to the conditions of the room but we had no choice rather to take them. It was the costliest stay for us and perhaps the last when it came to room conditions.
Hotel Chubi or Chube is located very near to the Changspa road. You need to take a right turn from Changspa road T-section and at the end of the road take a left turn. You will find this Hotel on the left side in that lane. We walked quite a few times between Hotel Chubi and Changspa road, so its not very far from it.
There was a no parking space available in the hotel. You will need to park the car outside the hotel just aside road. There was an empty land as well very near to hotel and I guess can be used for parking as well.
Phone facility along with STD is also available at the Hotel, the market and the Changspa road as well. The mobile connectivity was there for both Airtel and BSNL.
There are I guess three ATMs in Leh town and are not too far away from the Hotel Chubi. Two of them are near Taxi stand and one in the main market.
To get the fuel, you need to go to the Petrol Pump in Leh town.
For any medical assistance you will have to Leh town hospital, not too far away.
Rooms in the hotel provided average level of comfort. There was a dampness in the room and the low light made it even more damp. The rooms were not so cozy but they were quite clean. The attached bathrooms having hot water supply were also clean. There was no TV in the room 🙁 … A small garden was there in the hotel which had some lovely flowers as you say in the pictures too. I guess the dampness and low light was a big turnoff in terms of room.
Quality of food in the restaurant was really nice and the taste of tea /coffee was also good. We had the breakfast there which was quite good. Hospitality we received from the Uncle and Aunty was good too and they were quite friendly to talk to.
Attraction In-Around Hotel
Leh Main Market, Leh Palace, Changspa Road and Shanti Stupa are the not too far away from the Hotel Chubi.
In the end, I can say that it was an AVERAGE experience for us at the Hotel Chubi when we consider the price. You can try it if you cannot not find booking at any other hotel or at similar price. Personally, I didn’t like the rooms due to dampness but the food served in the restaurant tasted great and the garden in the hotel complex is lovely to refresh the fatigue of the days journey.
