This is our second trip to Tibet and we wanted to stay close by to the Johkang Temple. The Thangka hotel exceeded our expectations in terms of value for the location and cleanness of the rooms. The American/Tibetan/Chinese style breakfast buffet was great in the morning before the start of the day. Although they only have wifi in the lobby,... More

This hotel has very good location in the Lhasa old town, only couple of minutes walk to the Jokhang temple and Bakhor street, rooms are clean and comfortable in Tibetan style, hotel has lift and wifi, so it is good choice for family with kids and old people, easy and convenient

The Thangka is located just a block from Bharkor Square and the Jokhang Temple, the most revered of all destinations for Tibetan Buddhists. One of the best views of Lhasa is from the open roof of the temple, where one may see the famous Potala Palace some distance away, as well as the multitude of pilgrims circumambulating and pronating themselves...

Stay for three nights at this extremely center hotel. The location is the best as the hotel is in the quiet size of the road but the famous street market was just 30 meter from the hotel. The Barkhor Square and Jokhang Temple is just 5 minutes walk from the hotel. The hotel's lobby is not attractive at all, small... More

Stayed here as part of a package to visit Lhasa and tour Tibet. Hotel is right in the middle of the old town close to the Jokang Temple. Great way to feel the atmosphere of the place. There is a large street /tourist market right at the front of the Hotel if that is what you like. A good selection... More

We stayed at Thangka hotel as part of a Travelsphere holiday. We asked for a change of room after one night as there was an all night disco on nearby (not in the hotel). There was no problem with this - another guest on the same holiday also asked to change rooms. The hotel was a bit tired. Reception and... More

We stayed 3 nights in Thangka, had 2 rooms (returned to Hotel after days outside of Lhasa). We choose a quiet room on the 4th floor it was nice (the bed and pillows are real hard!). The second room was actually even better (shower door closed properly - we never touched the shower curtain). Breakfast was great - we eat... More

Wonderful hotel in tibetan style. Breakfast buffet included. The bedrooms are amazing, clean, big, well decorated, with everything you need, including oxigen bottles and medicine for hights sickness for very good prices! The location is perfect, just few steps to Jokhang and the street market. The only problem was the internet wifi absence (only inside the bar in 4 floor,... More
