Typical client reviews

Overpriced hotel, not worth it

A steep cost to stay in the middle of nowhere for nothing! It might sound like a joke, but unfortunately, it's not. I wouldn't recommend it at all. I understand the challenges of maintaining and managing logistics for a hotel here, but requesting a price comparable to a 5-star hotel in an Indian mega city is quite a stretch.

Room for improvement

Situated between the Indus River and the highway, the property has an entrance area with fruit trees and a small garden, but unfortunately, it's often used as a crowded parking space for vehicles. The building encircles an inner courtyard, and the rooms are distributed across the ground and lower floors. Rooms on the lower level receive less light, resulting in a somewhat dim atmosphere. Despite all rooms having patios for outdoor seating, there's room for enhancement. The rooms could use better upkeep, and the overall service needs improvement. There is also room for improvement in the quality of the food.

One night at the Apricot Tree Hotel

In this part of Ladakh, there's not much competition, and we decided to spend one night at The Apricot Tree while visiting the Sham region. The rooms are clean, and the large terrace provides a good view of the Indus River. The restaurant, however, lacks some excitement. The owner could make an effort to be friendlier and less arrogant. Regrettably, you can't walk easily towards the river from the hotel; instead, you need to walk down main road for a couple of hundred meters to reach a bridge. Overall, it’s a good place but quite expensive for what it is. I would rather stay in a cheaper hotel at Lamayuru village next time.

Charming Apricot Tree Hotel

This hotel is approximately 100 kilometers from Leh, offering a unique and relaxed luxury stay. All the rooms are nicely furnished, featuring an attached balcony that opens up to the Indus River. The serene location, peaceful surroundings, and the absence of TV were standout features that allowed us to spend quality time with family and friends. The staff is excellent, doing their best to assist guests within their limitations of resources. The meal timings has limited flexibility. Since the property is designed mainly for relaxation (nothing much to do), the buffet timings could be more accommodating. A one-hour buffer time for breakfast is too short. Speaking of the buffet, the food is average with limited options, mostly vegetarian. What was disappointing is that I forgot two of my jackets in the cupboard during checkout, and unfortunately, I never got them back. Such incidents should not happen in good hotels. Overall, it's a great place to stay.
