If you are looking for a brilliantly located, spotlessly clean hotel in Leh, then the aptly named “Spic ‘n Span” fits the bill. Within walking distance of the town centre, it has adequate, comfortable rooms and bathrooms, a pretty garden and a restaurant that serves standard hotel buffet fare.
Very popular with foreign tour groups – mainly European trekkers – means that it’s always busy, but the staff are charming and helpful.
We stayed there for a few days last July, and had no complaints whatsoever. Just one thing : our package included dinner, but were I to stay there again, I would opt for just B & B, as the food is nothing wildly exciting. Since the hotel’s location is so central, you are within easy walking distance of a couple of good restaurants in town, such as “Bon Appetit”, “Gesmo” or “Open Hand“.
Most evenings, we sat out in the little garden, reading, chatting, enjoying the cooler weather after hot days.
Yes, that really is a full moon shining over a mountain peak (below)…
Looking down on the tiny car park, and the lovely view beyond.
For rates, which vary according to the package you take, check their website.
I did not tell them I blogged or wrote reviews, and we obviously paid our own bills.
