Without a doubt our worst hotel experience in Tibet. Due to the season (November) no running water is available as the pipes freeze. Forget about a shower! The bathtub in the rather dingy bathroom is filled to the brim with dirty water that one is supposed to use to pour water down the toilet for flushing and a dirty plastic... More

Stayed as part of a tour group. The hotel is pretty old and basic, verging on shabby, though clean. My room was quiet. The hot water was very erratic. Breakfast was modest compared with other hotels in Tibet.

We stayed here for 1 night on a Tour through Tibet. First the good points. Fast wifi with good coverage across the hotel and decent breakfast (mini buffet of cereal/cake/bread at your table, then you will be served eggs, pancakes and tea/coffee). Hot water is ok, but not turned on until after 6:30pm and due to the pipe length, you... More

This hotel was part of the hotels booked in a tour in Tibet, so we didn't choose it. After reading the opinions in Trip Advisor I was terrified…but I have to say that the experience wasn't bad. It was just OK. We were there in August, so we didn't experience the freezing cold that other contributors mention. We had hot... More

Well, to find a decent hotel in this deserted town is huge luck in itself. If don't expect a moon here, you can be satisfied with the sky. The hotel is kept neat and clean with good furniture and some food to eat. Rooms are not well equipped to help guests in the fierce winter. The hotel thinks that thick... More

we were told this was one of the best in New Tingri ..I would hate to see the worse! a huge disjointed hotel with no redeeming factors. Our bedrooms were way down a very long passageway carpeted in old red carpeting threadbare or lifting in places. our bedroom smelt mouldy and appeared to have been unused for a very long... More

This is for everest hotel near base camp, rooms reasonable but no heat and cold. I used sleeping bag and provided blankets, water bottle with hot water and my clothes and it was passable. No showers, one squat toilet for each sex upstairs, restaurant upstairs, good view of everest. Not much choice here but ok for one cold night.

A group of friends and I stayed at this hotel for one night after arriving from Everest Base Camp. This hotel is quite big and has a large assortment of rooms that are very different from each other. Our travel agency arranged for us to stay in the newly opened wing of the hotel. When we arrived to check in,... More

We stayed at this hotel in New Tingri / Shegar overnight on the way to Rongbuk / Everest Base Camp from Shigatse. It was very average but probably the best available in this small town. No heating, so be prepared as it was quite cold in early May ... snow overnight. We slept in our sleeping bags as we were... More

There seems to be some confusion amongst the reviews/photos below: some seem to be for the Qomalongma (Everest) Hotel in Shegar town with much going on around it, and some seem to be for the Everest Hotel/Guest House at Everest Base Camp isolated way up in the mountains with nothing around it.! These are two DIFFERENT places, many miles apart.... More
