The hotel was very well located, it is two blocks away from Jokhang temple, the bedrooms were Ok, a little cold inside, they don't have heat system incorporated to the room and the heater they brought wasn't enough, we had to request for another one several times until we could get it so we wouldn't freeze while sleeping.

Hotel is in a perfect location, only a 10 minute walk one way to Potala Palace and 5 minute walk the other way to Jokhang Temple and old town. Lots of good restaurants within 5 minutes also. Our room was good, at the back in the renovated section. Was large, clean and warm, good under floor heating which was great... More

Location is the hotels best asset. Hotel is well placed in Lhasa - 500 metre walk to the Potala Palace and the square in front of it. Even with its location, you CAN NOT see the Potala Palace from the hotel as the hotel write up shows (to get this view you must walk to the intersection across from the... More

I brought a group here for our Tibet visit for our 3-night stay. Overall the hotel worked out just fine. Ask for a room in the back building as they seemed to be renovated while rooms in the main building were not. Our room was quite large and overlooked the courtyard. The location is ideal for walking around and one... More

The bad: -hot water is VERY unreliable -no bottled water provided -rooms were marginally clean. Dust in all the corners, bathroom... More

The Kyichu is well situated, just around the corner from lots of Old Lhasa's restaurants, and has a wonderful internal courtyard onto which a lot of the rooms look down. Our room was very good, a big bed, underfloor heating (!) and lots of space. However, the hot water took ages to appear and then we found that the tap... More

In September 2014, we joined the Himalayan Glacier tour and stayed here for 4 nights. It sits on Beijing Main Road, exactly in between Potala Palace and Jokhang Temple plus the Barkhor Bazaar. It has 4 storeys with a garden courtyard in the middle where you can have your meals and coffee/tea during the day. Our 2 persons, 2 single... More

We checked in here for 5 nights but was only able to stay 1. Location location location they say is everything. The place is run down and in major disrepair. Every room needs a major overhaul. Bathrooms are a minute shy of public restrooms. I have had better facilities at airport club lounges. This is more of a hostle stay.... More

I stayed here for three night out of a ten day tour of Tibet and while the location was very central and convenient, the hotel is weary and in need of repair. The staff made up for it with their energy and exuberance but it did not compensate for the broken tiles in our room and faulty showerhead. However, the... More
