The Dekang Hotel is well-located in Lhasa, just south of the Barcor (making it an easy walk). The rooms are very clean with very modern and up to date bedrooms and bathrooms. Another big plus is the rooftop restaurant which looks towards the Jokhang...nice for morning shots during breakfast. The restaurant serves excellent Indian food for dinner and the breakfasts were also excellent. We had only one negative; the smoke in the lobby. This should be a no-smoking zone but it isn't and it is irritating. Because of its location, it is near the city center and traffic noise can be an issue, especially if you leave your windows open to enjoy the fresh air like we did.
I stayed in this hotel for three nights. The room was actually great, with a good shower, very comfortable bed, very quiet, and spacious as well. However, in the lobby of the hotel, staff were SMOKING. It was awful. I hate smoke and had to breathe second-hand smoke every time I entered the lobby. They also had some incense or something else burning in a pot and the entire lobby was filled with smoke. It was very unhealthy and unpleasant. In addition, there was a board behind the counter in the lobby outlining exchange rates for different currencies and stating that this service was available, but they refused to change any money until I argued and argued with them. They stated that in the past they had offered that amenity but did not any longer. I told them that they should take down the sign that said they offered an exchange service with the different rates. They eventually exchanged a small amount of USD for me. With both good and bad features, I rated this hotel as average.…
We only had an Indian dinner at this hotel, not very original, but quite good. The decor is beautiful, with lots of ornaments reflecting rich Tibetan culture: the hotel and its restaurant have quite a lot of character,The service is quite good and the staff speaks decent English.
I stayed in this hotel 4 times during my last year's trip to Tibet. Staff were very friendly. The rooms were big and beds were comfortable. The buffet breakfast was excellent and the hotel is located in a walking distance to Barkhor Street and Potala Palace. The strength of WIFI reception varied in different part of the hotel though. I also had a dramatic check-in for my 4th visit. The hotel was fully booked on that day and staff were a bit disorganised. The first two rooms I were given actually already occupied by guests and I had a shock to walk into the 1st room to see the TV was on with clothing spreading in the room, and walked into the 2nd room to find someone else's luggage standing on floor. I had to drag my luggage back to the reception twice from different floors. The receptionist decided to go with me for the 3rd time in case it was again not an empty room. Finally, it was an empty room but bathroom was leaking. I had to take it since no spare room left. BTW, the balcony on top floor provides a nice angle to film Potala palace from distance.…
The Dekang is on the edge of the central part of the city. It is about twenty minutes by foot to the palace. If you like to walk, depending on the traffic, you can get there faster walking than using wheeled transport. Very good value for the cost.
In Tibet's standard, instead of 3-star, I would say it's a 4-star hotel in terms of money paid vs service received. What I like about it: 1) Close to the famous Barkor Street (5 minutes walk) 25 minute walk to Potala Palace (Potala Square) 2) Grocery stores nearby if you need to buy drinks/water 3) There are two restaurants in front of the hotel. The hotel itself also has a restaurant. 4) Friendly staff 5) Good breakfast (both Chinese and western style) What I don't like about it: 1) The room is a bit dark even with all lights on. 2) Only one elevator in the hotel
This is a genuinely Tibetan hotel, well located near the old city, on a quiet side street with useful stores further along and also around the corner. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Some bathrooms have clean-water-leak problems; check the bathroom first if you have a choice in rooms. The breakfast included in the room rate is very good indeed.
The rooms were great nice decor - ok few dodgy electric points and a bit of a leaky bath but the location is terrific so close to the johkang square and the shops and restaurants .. i liked the interior and the creaky floorboards in the dining area. Staff were helpful finding umbrellas and omlettes .sure it wasnt busy during our stay but maybe the breakfast bar could do with a reorganisation to be more friendly..
The hotel services are average. The room is a little bit old, especially the bath, need to improve. Breakfast of the hotel needs to improve. The location is goods, is around the city centre. The breakfast restaurant needs some upgradations.
Quite good hotel. Very spacious room with good shower. The hotel has only twin rooms, no doubles! But anyway they placed 2 beds together by our request. Towels were not perfectly clean, but more or less tolerable for Tibet, I suggest. Breakfast is more or less fine for 3 star hotel. The hotel has a Potala view from the terrace on the 5th Floor. Dinners "a la carte" at the hotel's restaurant were really good and the restaurant seems to be one of the best in Lhasa,
