While we were told hotels in Tibet would be a challenge, it was as if they went out of their way to make it uncomfortable. The hotel desperately needs an update as the building is old and dated. The carpeting in the rooms is dirty and smelled. There is no heat to speak of, and the staff insists on keeping the lobby doors open, which creates a draft throughout the hotel. And if you want a lukewarm shower, better take it mid-day, as in the mornings its ice cold. The beds are hard, the linens seemed unclean, and the housekeepers did nothing more than change towels in the rooms. We purposely left a piece of tissue that was on the floor in the bathroom and it was not moved before we left. The only redeeming quality was the location and the breakfasts.
