this hotel is traditional tibetan - i.e. it isn't a western, contemporary hotel so if that is your preference this hotel definitely isn't for you the staff are exceptionally friendly and can't do enough for you - although this is a very family feel, it does mean that the bar often closes early. when its open however the bar (on...

I paid 320 yuan for a basic room in October 2015. The entire hotel is done up in traditional Tibetan style. The room was clean, the bed clean/comfortable, and the water always hot. They provided a heater for the room too. My room (as was the entire hotel) was pretty dark, even with the lights on, but I didn't mind.... More

We loved out 5 night stay at Dhood Gu. It is in a great location right off the Barkhor but it is set far enough off the main street that you don't hear most of the traffic noise. The staff here were so friendly and helpful. We loved the rooftop bar with the excellent view of the Potala Palace. We... More

We stayed in this hotel for a couple of days during april 2015. Very friendly staff. The hotel is perfectly located. The old town of Lhasa is right next door. Beautifully decorated. During the nights Lhasa is still cold, but the hotel rooms have good floor heating. For the rest wear warm stuff and you will be fine. Wifi available.... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was rather average unfortunately. The location of the Hotel is very good, just off the main road and only 5 minutes by foot to the Jokhang temple and restaurants. I did like the Tibetan style interior in the lobby and in the rooms. The rooms were however not very clean, very dusty... More

I spent 4 nights on two different occasions at the Dhood Good. Everything looks okay on the surface, but there are glaring problems when you look a little closer. On both occasions, my room smelled heavily of cigarettes, the floors were dirty and the bathroom had previous occupant's leftover shampoo bottles and toothpaste tubes. There was a space age type...
