Situated on the main road in a rather dowdy city. Not expecting much outside Lhasa we were surprised to find beautiful large bedrooms with spectacular painted detail on walls and ceilings. Immaculate bathrooms with adequate hot water and a hairdryer. Air conditioning, a fridge and kettle . Helpful & friendly staff there are a number of restaurants along the road... More

Our expectations on the level of hotel accommodation outside of Lhasa was not very high, so we were pleasantly surprised with this hotel. Yes it does feel "state run", the lobby is pretty ornate & colourful, the room furniture is a throw back from the 80's, and overall the building / facilities need modernising / updating. We decided prior to... More

My checklist for a hotel in Tibet are - heat in the room, hot water, and clean rooms. In our two stays, we had moderate heat in the room, hot water some of the time, and clean rooms. This leaves me with 2 stars. Much like the rest of Tibet, there isn't wi-fi in the room, so you have to... More

Again I was pleasantly surprised, based upon earlier reviews. Similar to the Gyangtse Hotel, it had a very ornate lobby, was large, and only partially open due to it being November. The staff was friendly, the breakfast plentiful with lots of choices, and the room comfortable. There was a working toilet, lots of hot water, and good light coming in... More

I just laughed out loud when I read another reviewers comment about a hotel in Tibet. She said you need to always add ( in Tibet ) as of course the hotels here are not going to be the same as the ones we stay in elsewhere. So with that in mind this was the best hotel we stayed in... More

From what I hear it is one of the best hotels in Shigatse so I guess you rate it base on what you compare it too. The lobby is beautiful, wifi only in the lobby, breakfast is decent. Rooms are ok but the carpet was fitlhy and the toilet was leaking. Again, there are not many choices in Shigatse so... More

I stayed her twice, to and from the Mt. Everest Base camp which, unfortunately, was encased in clouds and rainy. Go round #2 was much better than #1. I arrived in the afternoon and was told dinner was available until 8 PM. I thought the hotel had a restaurant as they do provide breakfast. I went down to dinner at... More

I always feel the need to put in the disclaimer "for Tibet" in any reviews of the area, but in this case I may just have to skip that. (It's rather a back-handed compliment like, "Gee, for a fat girl, you sure don't sweat much!") Our expectations for accommodations in Tibet were set very low by our travel agent, but... More

It was a relief to spend one night in a proper hotel! Friendly staff, clean rooms, nice food. Centrally located, ideal for short or longer walks. Tashilumpo Monastery is within walking distance from the hotel, but the city itself was rather too Chinese!
