The Songtsam certainly has location, location, location. The feeling you get when you walk in the doors is just like being in someone's home - and it is actually the owner's home. The hotel is cozy and the rooms are relaxing. Where it falls short, though, is in the service; especially with the rates they are charging. Food in the... More

I was traveling with my elderly parents, and Songtsam impressed us by being very sensitive to their needs. My mother has problems walking, and they did everything to accommodate. They were always patient and ready to assist us. The excellent service we experienced here sets the standard for Songstam Lodges, and we will certainly choose them for future trips in... More

WOW. That's my summary in 3 letters. We traveled last December between 3 lodges: Meili => Benzilan => and Shangrila last, and we absolutely LOVED anything about our stay at the Shangrila retreat. First the surroundings are breathtakingly beautiful: the lodge is located RIGHT NEXT (5 mn walk) to the gorgeous Songzanlin Temple, which is the 2d biggest Buddhist temple... More

My husband and I visited Songtsam Hotel with our two children and my father. We stayed in the family room, with a lovely sitting room with wood burner, two separate bed rooms and a beautifully decorated bathroom. In the hotel everything is of good quality including the service delivered by the staff and the food served for breakfast and dinner.... More

The location is very good, open the window you can see the Songzanlin monastery. Service fine, warm environment is the feeling of home, the staff as a family! Decoration is fantastic, and inside the hotel to display a variety of antiques, very comfortable, very seductive!

Songtsam Lugu was our final stop so we decided to spend more time here. Other than the usual visits to Napahai (saw black necked cranes), Pudacuo National Park (Shudu Lake, Militang Pasture & Bitahai), Songzanlin Monastery & Dukezhong Old Town, we visited Shika Snow Mountain and went hiking at Tian Bao Snow Mountain. 2 way ropeway at Shika Mountain took...

Songtsam Lugu was recommended by a friend who traveled to Shanghri-la a couple of months before I did. We arrived at Songtsam Lugu on a rainy day after sunset, and the hotel staff waited for us outside with an umbrella. It gets very cold around March - April in Shangri-la when the sun is down, and the warm (red-brownish) colored... More

We are so happy we chose this hotel for our three-night stay. All staff members were friendly, attentive, and extremely helpful to us in arranging everything. The local barley beer was nice!! However, we ordered too much food for dinner (large portions!) and wished that the wait staff were more forthcoming with advice/suggested we cut back. That was embarrassing. Remember... More

We arrived in the early evening after a long trip and some good sightseeing on the way up from Lijiang. At over 3500m the altitude means, if you live at sea level like we do, that the climb to you room, we were on the 4th floor, is literally "breathtaking". The views from the room were spectacular, and with autumn... More
