The room looked like any other Chinese cheap hotel. But the place was clean, plenty of hot water for the shower, the staff was friendly, here was actually a tub for the shower (a rarity for China). The breakfast was extremely basic, so it might be a good idea to go elsewhere.

we stayed at this hotel for one night. The hotel is reasonable by Tibetan standards and was of an acceptable standard. It's cheap and popular with tour groups. It's is in a reasonable location for visiting the main tourist sights in the area.

Gyangze is in itself is a long way from the Western cities one can become accustomed to and so I was really pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Its central, the rooms are clean and well-maintained (if a little dated). The beds were typically firm but warm and cozy at night, and there was plenty of hot water to enjoy a... More

We stayed here for one night and found it to be quite good. The beds were very hard but we used the extra comforter under the sheet to help this. The room was quite clean and had a reasonable bathroom with hot water. The breakfast was boring, basically just bread and an egg. Our first room overlooked the street but... More

This hotel is average. Located in the main street of Gyangze city, which is convenient. The room is quite small, but overall it's clean. The only problem we have is the water pressure, which is very low. I think this hotel is ok for a nite stay, other than that Shigatse has better options. Oh ya, other thing is the... More

Arriving from Lhasa on an overland trip to Kathmandu, we stayed in the Jianzang Hotel. It is conveniently located to walk to the Gyantse Fortress and within 20 min to the Khumbun Chörten & Monastry. The rooms were basic but clean (OK, the shower could have been in a better shape), hot water, hard beds, still we had a good... More

My group arrived at this hotel in Gyangze en route overland to the Everest Base Camp. The town is pretty rustic and basic so the hotels are not plentiful. I chose the hotel for location and value and was not disappointed. The rooms, although on the smaller side, were adequate and the beds were typically hard according to Chinese standards... More

Yes, beds were hard and hallways/lobby were dark and deserted as per usual in our TIbet experience. But, things were cleaner than the norm (don't get me wrong, not truly clean), rooms were not smoky or smelly, had a cozy/cutely decorated bedroom for two, working toilet, shower, hot water, and heat. Hooray! Quiet, too. The first time in about a... More

This is not the best place we stayed in in Tibet but it is not the worse place I've stayed in either. It is basic when it comes to facilities and the rooms were pretty cramped. Sheets not completely clean but if you are not too fussy it is not too bad. And also: don't forget this is Tibet and... More

The location is ok. Right in the center of town. Not that you have anywhere to go here. But at least there are some restaurants across the street. Breakfast was just so so for us. Pancakes were kind of like bricks and so were the rolls. Beds were hard. I would say it’s a 2 star (on the lower end).... More
