Nubra Valley is one of the hottest tourist spot in Ladakh and Diskit is one of the town which people generally make the base to explore rest of the Nubra Valley. The biggest reason of Diskit being so popular is that it offers varied amount of accommodation options than rest of the places like Hunder, Panamik, Sumur in Nubra Valley.
When people visit Leh – Ladakh and especially any town outside Leh, they are prepared to settle for any basic stay options having basic food to satisfy the hunger. We had the same thoughts when we were moving towards Diskit town in Nubra Valley. Our driver managed to land us at Hotel Sten Del (Sangam Bar and Restaurant) in Diskit town. As we checked the rooms, it was out of our expectations and without wasting much time we booked the rooms. Let’s check the entire review below for: Hotel Sten Del, Diskit,Nubra Valley –

We got a room with four beds i.e. two double beds at a price of Rs 1500 per day few years back when the hotel was new. As per current, 2015, rates you will get a double bed room at around 2500-3000 per day.
The hotel is near Diskit Hospital. Try to confirm from the locals there regarding the whereabouts once you reach the town market or call at the hotel and ask someone to meet you at either Diskit bus stand or main road going towards Hunder.
There was a decent parking space available in the hotel for about 6-7 cars at least.
Phone facility along with STD is also available at the Hotel and they let us make calls to our home as mobile connectivity was only working for BSNL only. Moreover, they didn’t even charge for the calls made, perhaps they were not too long :)… or perhaps they were nice.
There is no ATM in Diskit town and you need to get money from Leh only which does have ATMs.
Diskit town does have a Petrol Pump but you should not count on it as it may be out of supply any given day. Get the sufficient fuel from Leh itself.
For any medical assistance you will have to approach the local Diskit town Hospital.
Rooms in the hotel were really comfortable, nice and cozy and the best thing was at such desolate location you are getting such kind of experience is just incredible. It was totally against our expectations once we got out from Leh town. Rooms were spacious enough with attached bathroom having hot water supply. The cleanliness was up to the mark in the rooms as well as the toilets. There was a TV with a DTH connection in the room as well, which can be utilized for entertainment :)…
Quality of food in the restaurant was decent enough to finish the entire food in the plate as it came 🙂 but tea /coffee I would say was just at satisfactory level, at least for us. Although the lunch dinner was decent but breakfast was just even better I shall say.
An ample garden space was there in the hotel with open Bar known as Sangam Bar. It was serving local Chang beer as well as some other known liquor brands. Generally, tourist come to this Hotel to enjoy the booze in the garden and opt to stay in other much cheaper but basic accommodation options available in the Diskit town. You can get the cigarettes for yourself as well by asking someone in the hotel to get them from the local market in Diskit town. Just pay him the tip or else go for a walk in the town and get it from the local market.
Hospitality we received from the guys was really nice and we enjoyed their company. Everyone had a charming smile on their face right from the old aged owner to the little children present in the hotel.
The terrace of the Hotel also offered some really nice views of lovely Diskit town and surrounding sceneries…
