We stayed here for 4 days in Nov 2014 as part of our 8 day tour of Tibet. The place is within walking distance of Barkhor Street and is located in old Lhasa where many Tibetans live. The hotel itself is quite old but the rooms are nicely decored. I think most of the staff does not speak English but... More

We stayed here for 4 days while visiting Lhasa, and were with happy with the stay. The rooms were clean and simple and always had tea (kettle and tea bags). The room was somewhat chilly, but that's Lhasa in late October. The hotel has a good location and we were within walking distance to a number of interesting sights. A... More

We stayed here in October for 2 days, the staff was nice, the rooms were clean. We initially got a Room with an Asian toilet (on the ground), we insisted to be moved to a room with a western toilet and finally they agreed. However they wanted to charge extra for the toilet difference. Eventually, they let it go. Breakfast... More

I enjoyed the stay in this hotel in general. It was very nice to come home after a nice guided tour and have a nice cup of tea (kettle and teabags provided). I like to let my thoughts drift with a bit of watching tv, unfortunately the tv has only one english channel, but that left me connected with the... More

Stayed in hotel as part of our Lhasa private tour. Hotel lobby looks nice but on entering our rooms our perception changed. Our rooms are in desperate need of a makeover & furniture replaced. Paints are peeling off walls & chairs badly stained/dirty. Toilet bowl also stained. Too bad our first choice hotel had no vacancy. Only plus point is... More

Yak Hotel in Lhasa is a beautiful hotel in Tibetan style. Tibetan women, ornamented in beautiful Tibetan costumes manage the reception. It's always busy at the reception. You can just sit in the beautiful decorated hall and enjoy the activity of hotelguests, groups of tourists and guides. The hotel including restaurant Dunya and travel agency Shigatse Travel is situated around... More

Stayed as part of a group tour. This was one of the better hotels we had in Tibet. The location was very central. My room was large and comfortable with a good bathroom. It was at the back of the courtyard, so was very quiet if a bit dark. The restaurant (run as a separate business) had lovely staff and... More

Firstly, excellent location, near Barkor Street and Jokhang Temple, plus lots of eateries. Secondly, do NOT take a dorm room. The room itself was ok, 4 beds ( not bunks), but the bedding was grimy, thin and had many holes, including an 30 cm rip in the sheet. The shared bathroom often had vegetable peelings left by the housekeepers as... More

Stayed three nights in this hotel acclimatizising before travelling to higher altitudes. The room we got was located in the backyard building and maybe therefore quite silent. The rooms facing to the street might get some noice. The beds were ok, also the bathroom, but warm water was not always available. We got only little daylight into the room and... More
