I used this hotel for many years and it has very good location of only few minutes walk to the Bakhor street, it is surrounded by local resident and feel like staying in a Tibetan village. rooms are clean and comfortable, the hotel also have a good roof top cafe and little garden too.

I stayed at this hotel for a total of six nights and found it absolutely charming. It is old, but that's part of the charm. There is a central courtyard which we enjoyed sitting in at night. The rooms are not deluxe, but they are certainly adequate. The beds were comfortable and everything worked. The location is very good, as... More

We stayed in this hotel as part of a tour of a Tibet organized by David Li of Odyssey Tours who we strongly recommend. We loved the hotel. The room was decorated in Tibetan style and had all the comforts we desired. It is very close to Barkhor Street and the Jokhung Temple. It is in the old quarter and... More

The Hotel is very well located in the old quarter of Lhasa. The Jokhung Temple is within walking distance as is the Potala Palace. It's old world architecture and design is particularly pleasing. The staff is very friendly and responsive - and knew more English than some of the Mainland Chinese hotels one has stayed in ! Has a lovely... More

Been there about a week ago. The people who run this hotel are very nice and try to give the best service they could. Do not chose a room which is installed with a solar water heater if you are going in winter because the water will never get hot enough. The heater in the room was not good enough... More

We booked this hotel through CTrip, one of the sites on Travel Advisor. It never occurred to us the it would be so difficult to find. We left our previous hotel at 8:30 a.m. and walked in the direction shown on Google maps for apps. Along the way we stopped at two hotels along Beijing Road to verify directions only... More

Tibet Gorkha Hotel is full of characters in respect of its architecture, design, room layout, courtyard and even its people. Stayed there in August 2013 for 5 days and it was a brilliant choice. It is minutes walk to the famous Jokang Temple and also the Balang shopping street. Only comment I would have is the room is too romantic... More

We stayed at the Gorkha Hotel twice on a recent trip to Tibet -- the first time was for a few days upon arriving in Lhasa, and then, again, for the last few days before our departure. We stayed in different rooms each time, both in the back, overlooking the courtyard. If I were basing this review only on the... More

I have stayed in this hotel during my (unfortunately too short) trip to Lhasa. We all loved this little hotel: very quiet, great position, just a walking distance from the central square and surrounded by little shops and restaurants. The rooms are spacious, very colourful. The bathroom was also quite big. Wi-fi in the room worked fine. We ate at... More

The hotel had a very cozy feel to it. Both courtyard and rooms were decorated in tibetan style. Our room was huge,clean and I liked the nonconventional hotel style. - Though there was no door to the bathroom and the room was heated by an electrical heater. Staff was friendly and helpfull. Restaurent was OK.
