This hotel is in the middle of Lhasa and very well placed for the Jokang temple and the Barkhor. The rooms are comfortable and are decorated in traditional style, but rather dark. The accommodation is set back from the front of the hotel and consequently is less affected by traffic noise. Wifi worked ok in the lobby, but didn't reach... More

The tour company put me in this hotel. Kind of ok place to stay. Relatively clean but rooms are very dark, bathrooms are ok. Location is definitely a plus as it is near to Jokhang and there is also a big supermarket nearby.

We were in the vip section, which was quiet and well appointed. Traditional decor in the the room, but very modern bathroom, which was a good combo. Heating didn't work very well, and wifi in room was poor (but good in lobby). No breakfast service in winter. Overall, we were very comfortable. Excellent location.

The Yak hotel is a classic Lhasa hotel. Our first room was OK but the drain in the shower did not work, causing water to flood the room. We reported this to management and staff attempted to clear the drain. Their efforts did not work and we asked for a different room on the second floor. That room was just... More

I didn't choose this hotel - it was the hotel my tour company put me in - and I was not expecting much as my tour company had warned me that Tibet was very basic, but I was pleasantly surprised. My room was in the back - not in the main building, so was nice and quiet - and was... More

An interesting property. This hotel is in an older, traditional quarter of Lhasa. It is close to some of the most iconic tourist sites but offers little in itself. There are no lifts and the property consists of several disjointed buildings. My building and the roof top breakfast restaurant required eight flights of stairs in each direction, not fun for...

We went with a local agency and they had no bathroom rooms for us. That was ok, but when I asked for a towel, they said they did not have. Ok, not included in the price I guess. But when i asked for a glass, the would not give me any also. The attitude was very unfriendly and disagreeable. They... More

Main advantage being on the main road and close to almost everything. Rooms in the front are big and nice but then they are noisy too. Room on the fourth floor have less water pressure. Rooms in the back yard are small and does not have view but peaceful. Reasonable break fast and good view from the top. But unfortunately... More

The Yak hotel is well appointed and located near the centre of Lhasa - across the road from the 'old town' area and a short walk to the Potala Palace. The rooms are surprisingly quite with plenty of space - comfortable and clean. The bar and dining room have a great range of food and beverages and the service is... More

The Yak hotel lives up to its 3 star rating. The hotel is comfortable with minimal frills. The wifi is decent depending on which building you are in. There are no elevators, the rooms are clean and location is great. The restaurant at the hotel is good as is the breakfast in the mornings. Some reception staff speak English. We... More
