Please suggest 2 star or 3 star hotel in leh to stay which has best location?
I don't follow star rating for hotels but experience. Hotel Royal Plaza has both ratings and my personal experience. Good food, WiFi facility, hot water availability for more than 6 hours in a day and most importantly you just need 5 minutes walk to reach Leh main market. What's not good is its location when you are travelling from airport or by road, if driver knows the place, which most local drivers do, you won't face this problem as well. Happy stay.
