This hotel is in a excellent locatation with a good choice of restaurants nearby. The breakfast on the roof is very good. The beds were a bit hard and it sometimes took time for the hot water to warm up. We had a room in the back block and found it to be reasonably quiet.

the hotel is well located in the old town, 50mt from the pedestrian zone, you can reach easily by wolking the potala and other important sites, U can find also a dormitory if you are a budget traveller, great the view at the top where you have the breakfast...4* just because the wireless made me crazy is never going, but...

Nice and clean rooms. Not so big, but was allright. Good showers, only weird thing is that the cold and hot water was switched. Very poor wifi in all the hotel. If you can connect the connection is terribly slow. Nice continental/tibetan restaurant next to it (dunya). Staff can't speak english. Location is great.

The Yak features comfortable rooms, a bar and restaurant with a good menu, friendly staff and is well located within walking distance of most Lhasa city attractions including the Potala palace. Rooms are well decorated with modern bathrooms.

The breakfast was good when there were big groups staying. It's a very eastern hotel. Stay in the rooms on the main road and not in the back for best wi fi reception. The staff did the best they could do to be assistive. For the price I would recommend this hotel. It was clean and centrally located. It had... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and because of the location we would not stay anywhere else. We stayed at the building at the back and was very quiet to get a good sleep. It is close to Jokang temple and all markets and souvenir shops. We found a restaurant close to the hotel called Snowland recommended by our tour... More

Being Lhasa and on a G adventures tour you do not expect too much but this hotel was actually very good. There are a few buildings in the complex and we stayed in the one in the rear. This as far as I know is a better building as the rooms are newer and as they are further from the... More

I will start with the positive of this hotel- location is amazing and can not be beat. Now into the review: The hotel is located on a busy road and it seems it just gets louder at night...the hotel attempted to muffle the sound by adding another layer of windows but the kicker is that the temperature is whatever the...

The yak hotel is on a main road in Old town Lhasa, it has lots of tour groups using it. We used it as part of a tour and stayed for four nights. The hotel was very convenient with friendly staff. In the reception area you did get lots of guides sitting around smoking. We had a good size room,... More

My initial impression of the Yak hotel was not bad but quickly went downhill. The one positive is a great location. However, the sheets and towels had numerous holes, the carpet didn't seem to have been cleaned in ages (our shoes were dirtier from inside than out!). The bathroom shower curtain was covered in black mold and the bathroom stunk... More
