House of Shambala and Shambala Palace Hotel are run by the same company. We stayed at the latter. The decor was delightful, over the top Tibetan, and the staff tried hard. There were a number of small maintenance problems, like latches that didn't open or loose toilet seat, but the only important one was the failure of the water to get properly hot. It took us a day or so to figure out which tap was meant to be the hot water one and then wait a full five minutes for it to show up, but never more than tepid. That said' the location couldn't have been better, right in the heart of the old Tibetan quarter. This meant daily walks through lively alleys filled with prayer wheel twirlers, school children, furniture painters, craft shops, knitters, etc.
