This hotel has everything you could need here in Xiahe. First of all, the location is fantastic, literally right next to the Labrang Monastery and within walking distance from the bus station. There is shopping and plenty of nice places to eat right across the street from the hotel. Rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. The hotel was... More

Only one staff member spoke any English. It took ages to check out because the staff ignored us until we protested. The WiFi worked in our room for a total of 2 hours in 4 days despite asking for it to be fixed. The room was never cleaned only the bin emptied once in 3 days. Only went to the... More

Very clean, though simple lodgings. Showers were excellent considering the location, water very hot. Security good too, though the dorm should have lockers. Staff reserved but helpful, resturant could do with more warmth.

We stayed 3 nights at this clean, comfortable guesthouse. Losang, the owner, speaks excellent English and was most welcoming, helpful and friendly and can arrange transport from Lanzhou tours around the area The location is perfect for visiting the nearby monastery, cafés and shops.

I stayed at the Overseas Tibetan Hotel for one night during a school trip to Qing Hai and Gan Su provinces. Our planned accommodations were at the Tara Guesthouse, which is very well-located and a good place to meet travelers from all over China, including pilgrims visiting the Labrang Monastery. However, after two weeks of travel with limited bathroom facilities,... More

I had a good time there. People who works there always willing to help. Defenetely overcharged because of the Monlam Chenmo festival. Internet not working the best and tv not working at all. The hardly speak english. The good things I would mention about this place is that is very close to the monastery and that has good heater.

The rooms are very comfortable and the entire hotel is kept very clean. The hotel is located less than 100 metres from the beginning of the pilgrimage kora around... More

Nice rooms, very clean bathroom and hot showers. Helpful reception although limited to no English. If you go outside the high season you can expect discounts of up to 50%. Without discounts, this hotel is quite pricy...
