Good location, friendly staff. The restaurant had a broad menu and similar to other restaurants, but the Momos here are the best in Tibet (per my limited tasting in several places). The restaurant was a mix of tourists, locals and even monks; so that was cool. Probably best to use your own bath towel as the one they provide leaves... More

We stayed in Rama Kharpo as part of our tour's recommendations for 4 days and 3 nights in Lhasa, and I enjoyed the comforts it provided while we were there. LOCATION Rama Kharpo is located in the heart of Barkhor Street and what, an incredible 5 minutes walk away from Jokhang Temple? Every-single-night we were there we had the chance... More

Spent 5 nights there and it was part of a package so not sure how much was the room. It was just OK, the room was clean when we arrived but then got only cleaned only once after and only because we requested it. We had some animal in there pulling out crumbs out of the joints in the floorboards... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. Overall it is a fairly OK place to short term stay. The rooms are clean, basic with no amenities. The beds were quite hard too. Mine was practically dented through over use (I did stay in another room at one point and the bed was slightly better). Location-wise it is near the centre of... More

Location is perfect, breakfast tasty, hot water is always there. Wifi works, stuff is nice and understand English. Electric blankets will get you warmed as there is of course no heating. There are some construction works around so in the mornings it is a bit loudy

We stayed at this little hotel for our Tibet trip of 5 days. Initially we were shocked by the standards of hygiene here, but after a few days in and around lhasa we can say that this hotel is actually relatively clean! Just be mentally prepared for toilet conditions in Tibet if you can. And so our first impression of... More
