There are quite a number of accommodation options available in Leh to suit every budget. One of the good economic options for stay in Leh is Shanti Guest House, just stones throw from Shanti Stupa and Changspa road. I had an opportunity to stay there in my Ladakh journey and here is the review for the same-
Shanti Guest House, Leh, Ladakh
Here is the complete review of Shanti Guest House, Leh – Ladakh —
Strange but true that due to some unavoidable circumstances (Leh -Ladakh flash floods), we didn’t click a single picture during our two day stay at Shanti Guest House :(…

The hotel almost runs full throughout the season so its always better to either book in advance or atleast ask them to keep the rooms for you
We got a room with four beds i.e. two double beds at a price of Rs 800 per day. The single double bed rooms were available for 300-500 per day. Of course, on the quoted prices overtelephone you always have the option to bargain 🙂 and generally the pricing is in the range mentioned above. It is one of the economic and decent option of stay which is nearby Changspa road and Shanti Stupa. Main market is about 2 KM walk from the hotel.
It is situated right on the Shanti Stupa road just ahead of Shanti Stupa. If you are coming from Changspa road towards Shanti Stupa, then you need to take a right from T-section to reach the hotel. If you are coming from Airport towards Shanti Stupa then continue straight ahead of Shanti Stupa untill you see the Shanit Guest House towards your left side.
There is no room for parking inside the hotel. You will need to park your car on the road outside the hotel.
Phone facility along with STD is also available at the Hotel.
ATMs are located in main market of Leh town and near Leh taxi stand, which are at a walkable distance of about 2-3 KMs.
Fuel is available at Petrol pump in Leh town.
You need to approach local Leh hospital for any medical assistance.
Rooms in the hotel were on the average side but if the price is taken into account then I shall say it was a very good deal. The rooms were basic and the cleanliness was up to the mark in the rooms. There was no TV in the room ( but there was one TV in dining room), atleast the one which we took. The bathroom in our room was not so clean as the rains have caused the mud to get onto the floor from the window. However, we were disappointed that it never got cleaned during our stay of two days. So, it was a bit turn-off. However, the situation was a but different at that time because of havoc caused by the floods.
There was a dinning room with ladakhi style sitting to experience the culture and a lawn as well in the hotel where you can have your meal. We didn’t take any meal there owing to the fact that Changspa road was in the vicinity which offers wide varities of cuisines. But, we tried Maggie at the hotel which was nice. The two ladies taking care of the hotel at that time, prepared the food.
There was a little garden at the back where you can relax your nerves if you like. The terrace of the Hotel also offered some really nice views of Shanti Stupa and the other side of it too.
Overall it was a pretty good stay and the price tag makes it complete VFM (value for money) stay option.
Attraction In-Around Hotel:
One can visit Shanti stupa, Changspa Road, Leh Main Market, Leh Palace etc from the hotel.
If you are looking for the economic and decent option of stay and find yourself comfortable with basic/homes stay type accommodation then this hotel may certainly suit your style. Not recommended, if you are looking for greater comfort and luxury stay with price being not the factor for you.
