The sign in the lobby states the Thangka is a 4-star hotel, which it may have been, back in the 80s when first fitted out. Nowadays I'd say it's a solid 3-star. If you get a good price on it, and go in expecting it to be a 3-star, you might give it 4 stars on your review. Good *... More

Centrally located in town which is convenient to get to Potala Palace and downtown shopping. It is located in between the 2 big shopping malls so there are constantly many tourists around. The hotel receptionist are helpful and quite efficient with a nice attitude. The room is big enough and the highest floor on the 4th level. The television is... More

The room is very big and clean. The bathroom is above average compared to other hotels. The location was superb, in the middle of old town, just a few steps to Barkhor street and Joking Temple but it was very quite due to its position inside the complex.

Like the others say, it's a great location. The hotel itself is OK. The water was hot, the shower leaked (like many Chinese hotels), the breakfast was just food, and the front desk was all business - not friendly, not unfriendly -- just business. It was clean enough for me (USA man who lives in China). Hey! I didn't come... More

good location, good stay. But i still cannot used to the system where i cannot flush away used-toilet-paper into the toilet bowl, this seems to be common in China. We chose a twin room and add on 1 bed, just nice for 3 of us in 1 room. Enjoyed my holiday with my family. Simple breakfast with some Tibetan delicacies.

The big advantage of this hotel is its location. Walking distance to Potala Palace and the temple. The rates in the lobby is outrageous and not what I paid through the tour agent. Do not book direct. It has a sign that says 4 star but in international standards it is only at best a 3 star. The breakfast is... More

I stayed at the Thangka Hotel for 2 nights in October 2014 and the location is great - just a minute to walk to the Jokhang Temple and the Barkhor Street. The room was very spacious, but the carpet could have been cleaner. Breakfast was o.K., but more chinese style, than western style. The reception area is plain with only... More

The location is excellent. 15 minutes walk to the Potala Palace and just few meters to the Jokhang Temple and markets. Some monasteries are quite close as well. The breakfast was just ok. A mix of Tibetan-Chinese dishes as well as some international ones. The room was a bit cold but the air-con helped to keep it warm. Hot water... More
