We stayed for two nights. The heater didn't work and the staff were just fiddling with the knobs and said there was hot air coming from the heater. Room temperature was set to 30 and it was as good as not having heater at all. Door had to be slammed so it wouldn't beep. The safe didn't work and the... More

The Shiner hotel is in a good location on the main rod of Zhongdian. Sme rooms have nice views of monastry on the far horizon. Comfortable large rooms . Breakfast was typical Chinese with limited Western items on buffet. Beds were extremly hard

We stayed in a suite and h hotel s pretty par for the course for Chinese travel/tourist hotels. It was clean and the breakfast was better than most. The hotel is a couple of kilometers away from the old part of town, but it is a straight shot on the bus or a 7 RMB taxi ride there. There is... More

A not very comfortable room (and shipped sheets on our bed) and a bad breakfast then it took 21 minutes to check out. Maybe we both ah a touch of altitude sickness but we were not impressed.

What impressed us most about the Shiner hotel was the welcome! Our group was greeted with steaming hot and fragrant towels and delicious ginger tea. Our rooms were unusual...the beds were on platforms...but they were comfortable. The heat came on at 6 pm but there were nice electric blankets to keep us warm too. It was a nice experience and...

We stayed at this hotel late April 2012 and our guide mentioned that we were to stay in the Holy Palace but other travel agents said it was bad. The room had worn furinture and dirty carpet. We found empty match boxes in the draws which we used to stop the window rattling. The bathroom had mould on the shower... More

Our travel agent booked us into the Shiner Hotel in Shangri-La. The hotel is a 20 minute drive from the Old Town. It is in an industrial area, with construction noise from early morning until 7 p.m. daily. The rooms have no heat between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m., in spite of the very cold (2 degrees Celcius!) temperatures. The... More
