Lhasa Hotel, also known as kai yuan lhasa hotel, is one of the first hotels built in Lhasa. It is quite large, but it can get crowded during the peak summer seasons. The main halls are pretty grand, but the halls are often filled with cigarette smoke. (Something common to all Chinese hotels) The rooms are pretty good, but the... More

this was the first major hotel to be built in Tibet after the communist "liberation" and was designed for party officials in monolithic mode, the atirum is vast and colourless (brown being the endemic colour) with the reception desk tucked away (all the staff in overcoats, no English and surly service); it really needs a female touch with flowers to...

One small oasis in this dirty but very beautiful Lhasa. Look behind the Chinese facade and enjoy real Lhasa, the Potala the monasteries the market. Great big and clean rooms, very reasonable food for Tibet. Very loud and rude chinese neibours tho !!!!

Enjoyed 3 nights in this lovely hotel. The rooms are so spacious and so comfortable in every way. There are huge windows and plenty of natural light. The bathroom is well designed with separate toilet. Good wifi. The availablity of oxygen in our room, with speedy service to assist you is an added advantage if you experience altitude sickness. Excellent... More

We stayed twice at this hotel in April 2014. We stayed in the new wing and the rooms were great. Roomy, comfortable and everything works. Great four Tibet. The down side is if you are an English speaker don't expect anything other than a great room. Outside of breakfast there was little food on offer. Most of the hotel was... More

I arrived to Lhasa with my husband on Dec 31. Not the best time because there was no Year's Eve Celebration. This is low season in Tibet, so there we almost no guests at the hotel. There was only a chinese restaurant open and they had no english menu! Though, staff was very friendly and did their best to explain... More

The hotel was a 45 minute drive from the flat land with no buildings that was the airport (1985). We were there in 1985. the date option didn't give that date as an option! Open barren land. So desolate. I think I passed out before we landed. Was dizzy the drive to the hotel. Had to be helped inside. We... More

The rest of Tibet might be wonderful, but I always feel happy when I arrive in Lhasa with my group members. The new section of the hotel where the reception is located is wonderful, although the connecting corridor is sometimes confusing. The rooms are big and clean, but very often our Chinese neighbours were far too noisy. They often left... More

With the addition of the new building this is now a large hotel which makes it hard to navigate. If you stay in the older building it is also loud. You pretty much have to slam your door to close it meaning others have to to which can get loud at night when trying to sleep. As a light sleeper... More
