“Clean & comfortable room with Tibetan influences”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

The room is spacious, clean and comfortable.

Near the windows, there is a nice seating area with fur rugs which makes it very cosy.

I find that the hotel have provided some very thoughtful facilities. There is a humidifier provided as the air is so dry and a heating pad on the bed as the nights can get really cold (2 - 3 degrees) even though we were there in April (supposed to be Spring?).

The bed is comfortable but I had trouble sleeping probably due to the lack of oxygen at an altitude of 3300m.

Dinner and breakfast was quite good and I liked the yak butter tea & the Qing Ke barley drink provided.

Our tour guide even managed to get one of the Tibetan waiter to sing a folk song for us during dinner. & wow, he got really great & powerful vocals.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

This hotel was arranged by our tour operator and we stayed there for 2 night in June 2013. The Hotel is on the main road through Shangri la and traffic can be noisy at night. Our room was basic but clean. Room had an air humidifier to keep the room moist and as the air is very thin,breathing and sleeping can be difficult particularly for people with medical conditions. However small hand held oxygen bottles can be purchased at the hotel shop and they do help with breathing. Hotel staff do not understand nor speak any English so unless you have an English speaking guide, communication is almost impossible.
A fire occurred in the dining room kitchen the first night we were there and we were not advised until the following morning when staff informed our tour guide they had arranged breakfast for us at another hotel. WiFi was available but we had difficulty in logging on and it was hard to get hotel staff to understand and assist. Breakfasts are mainly Asian but you can get fried eggs and toast. Coffee like in most Asian hotels is terrible.

This hotel was selected by our tour company for our one night stay. Hotel was very new and had working wifi, comfortable rooms and relatively clean toilets. Restaurant beside it was a welcome surprise with good selection for breakfast and excellent service compared to other hotels in Yunnan.. However toilets cleanliness can be improved further.
Had a dehumidifier provided in each room. Found it a bit noisy towards the morning..
Not sure about location as we were in joining a tour.

Hotel looks basic from the outside. Room is big & clean but kinda dim for us. Each room has an air humidifier which help keep the room moist but some may find it noisy in the middle of the night. Amenities with hair dryer & water boiler is provided too.

Surprisingly, the TV can receive many channels but all in Chinese. Breakfast is usual stuff .. eggs, bread, cornflakes, water-melon & local chinese dishes. Best to bring own beverage pack for breakfast & ask for hot water.

Not too sure about the location as we were on tour group and stayed only one night.
