If you need a Chinese run western style box hotel, this is not your place, if you want character, charm, warmth, friendly helpful service run by Tibetans in the Tibetan part of town than this is THE place. Ideally situated a few blocks from Barkhor Square, this oasis of Tibetan peace and tranquility offers interesting accommodations (we stayed in the meditation room, nice!) and a roof top bar with a view of the Potala. The nice little restaurant has a with charm and friendly accommodating staff. Food is good and the beer cold. I'm surprised by some of the avg/neg reviews these people must have thought they were checking into the George V. My wife and I can't wait to return. Also, check out the handicraft shop next door for pillowcases, jewelry and more. A perfect way to give back to the local artisans.
