Our tour company booked us here for the first night of our stay in Lhasa, rather than at the Shambhala Palace, and we weren't happy about the switch. Although the two are sister properties, our room in the House of S was substantially worse than the one we subsequently switched to at the Shamblhala Palace. A strong smell of excrement... More

If you're ever in Lhasa, make sure you stop over and have a beer either at the lobby or even at their rooftop shed. We didn't get a chance to stay here as the rooms were fully booked. We settled for the next best thing...chilling out!

We stayed here three nights and we really enjoyed it. The hotel has great charm and the location is unbeatable. We got a suite, which was beautifully decorated with local elements. The people at the hotel were extremely friendly and helpful. The owner (Jigme) helped us getting the permit for Tibet and put us in touch with an outstanding guide... More

We stayed here for 4 nights during our Tibet trip, it was booked by our tour company. The hotel has very unique decor with the red walls and wall murals. The 5 of us stayed in 2 rooms next to each other and it felt very private for us. The room was big and roomy and had cushions on the... More

If you are looking for a chain hotel, this isn't the place. Thank goodness, we don't look for that! This little gem is just off the back streets from both the main thoroughfare (for when you need to go sightseeing) and the local shopping district (for some afternoon puttering around!) It's extremely quiet, and built in an old mansion centered... More

We had requested Shambala Palace but were placed here instead because the rooms were "a better fit for our family" (according to the manager who runs both -- I am not sure about that). The hotel is charming, exactly what you want to experience Tibetan style and not a bland western hotel. The grotto style showers were especially liked by... More

Our friend recommended this hotel for us to stay in during our week long visit to Lhasa and Tibet – and we were glad that he did. Lhasa has now been made “modern” by the Chinese with a spanking "new Lhasa" laid out with wide parallel roads, street lights et al.. This has many of the newer western style hotels.... More
