Lonely Planet review
The Lotsava is a somewhat austere-looking three-storey cube of traditional Ladakhi farmhouse in a dark, flowerless garden. Downstairs rooms are simple. Upper rooms are brighter and pleasant albeit with plywood ceilings. Take the alley beside Alchi Resort.
Our independent authors have visited Lotsava and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Ladakh.
