The last hotel we stayed in during out ten day overland trip though and definitely the best by far. Certainly could be compared to the 3* hotels in Lhasa. Zhangmu is a sprawling town tumbling down a mountainside. The hotel is situated at the edge of a cliff so has stunning views of far away mountains and the valley below.... More

We stayed at this hotel as the last stop on our tour from Lhasa to the Nepal border via Rongbuk / Everest Base Camp. Given some of the places we stayed at along the route, this hotel was a quite a good standard on a comparable basis. However, internationally it would only be a 2 or 3 at best. Our... More

Was put up at Zhangmu Hotel by the tour agent when we were at the zhangmu border, and this hotel is located right at the bottom of the hill, somewhere near a chinese custom office/gate. From what i gather, this is one of the best or the best hotel in Zhangmu area, there ain't a Shangrila or a Hilton here.... More

We moved here from a really dirty hotel so our room was like a bit of paradise in comparison.  Clean sheets, nicely decorated, clean floors and bathroom with rainfall shower next to the toilet. There was also a kettle and some green tea bags. Our room overlooked the back and had a lovely view of the forest, the valley and... More

well what does one expect in Tibet, you ain't goinf to get the Hilton in this border town. Comfortable rooms with good showers. We ate at the Western Restaurant opposite - v good for China. Check out the Sherpa Disco nearby - interesting !

Ok, Zhangmu Hotel might not be everybody's first choice, but after a 6-hour drive from Kathmandu it's perfectly ok. The rooms are clean and quiet and the view is superb. The restaurant on the very bottom floor serves filling breakfast but it opens its doors quite late. There's a nice restaurant opposite the hotel, I went for dinner and the... More

We stayed at the hotel driving from EBC to the Nepal border. It really is a border town with lines of trucks down the winding streets waiting for loads from or to get across the border to Nepal. The hotel is about a 10 minute drive to the Friendship Bridge border crossing and the Chinese do not make the border... More

At first I was angry about the room. But when we went out to eat and rural service experienced: laughter, fun, singing, very hard, quick, because I knew that EVERYONE has given his Bestest. Thank you for this! We were on the roof of the world (not at the Sheraton).

This hotel was better than some we stayed in in Tibet.It hangs on to the side of the gorge, like every other building in Zhangmu.The room was a reasonable size, and the bathroom was ok, the shower drained well ,but it was all a bit dirty looking, the room had large damp patches on it. The rooms at the back... More

Else where in the world I would have rated the hotel poor, but it was pretty average for Tibet. The hotel is built into the mountain side where affords the rooms at the back with beautiful views of the valley. We travelled to Zhangmu from Everest base camp where we had spent the night at Rongbuk Monastery Hotel. Consequently, we... More
