In case you wave between "Shambala 3 stars hotel" and Yak hotel, Shambala has better location. Closer to walking area, there is a cozy coffee shop, better breakfast. However, rooms are small and carpet not that clean... 7 points out of 10. We could see Potala palace from our window.

Wifi is free and works brilliantly! A huge plus in our book. We must mention how wonderful the hotel restaurant is....we are not ones to eat at "hotel restaurants",... More
