The hotel location is superb - 5 mins to Barkhor street and about 20 minutes to the palace. The decor is well done and very charming. The service was great - very attentive. I was absolutely freezing (even with the little portable radiator) and asked the bellman for an extra blanket. A thick blanket was immediately brought to my room. However, the next night I discovered that one of the blankets on the bed was an electric blanket and I could have plugged that in. (The cord is hidden from view tucked into the space between the bed and the headboard). In winter, that should be mentioned at check in or when shown to the room.

The breakfast was one egg over easy, 2 pieces of white toast and coffee/tea. I think this could be greatly improved by offering 2 eggs, and the local bread rounds from the bakery a few doors down (1 Yuan each when bought individually) instead of that awful bread. Also, adding some local produce, like orange slices, would make it local and VERY special.

During my stay, the electric went out in the hotel for 1.5 days so I was thankful for that extra blanket. The staff was great about providing candles to people that didn't have flashlights. They also put candles on each stair flight banister which was very helpful. Had the power stayed off another night, they offered to move us to a different hotel. When the power returned, that electric blanket was turned on and it was perfect. :)

Noise doesn't bother me, but there is a lobby on the first floor with a communal sitting area. Many of our tour group members would gather here and socialize in the evenings. The conversation noise carries up to all the floors, so it can be quite noisy. Bring earplugs if noise is an issue for you.

I would definitely stay here again but would buy some bread at that bakery and fruit to supplement their breakfast if it's still the same. A street map would be a really nice touch, too, since the winding alleys can be confusing if you wander too far away (easy to do with all the interesting sights). They do have business cards with a few of the streets on the back which came in handy - be sure to take one before you head out.

Overall, a nice stay.

The first to realise is this guesthouse is a 5 story walk up building (no lifts), which anywhere else would not be a problem. However when new to Lhasa and the altitude you do absolutely lose your breath climbing up to your room on the higher floors. The hotel is setup around the central atrium, which lets in lots of light throughout the building, and all the rooms face in towards the courtyard.

The rooms are basic, but clean. The bedding is clean and there are many blankets and layers to keep your warm at night.

The bathroom is basic, but the water is hot and the shower is decent.

There is a restaurant offering good breakfast options, and a nice rooftop where you can sit outside and enjoy the views around you. Wifi is also available.

We just returned from Lhasa after having spent 3 nights in this hotel. Tashitakge Hotel made our trip to one of the most rural part of China a memorable and comfortable (to the best extent) journey.

The hotel is very clean, cosy and good value for money. It is well equipped with hot water, warm blankets, humidifier (a must in high altitude) and free wi-fi.

The hostess is very friendly, speaks good English and offered good travel advice (recommended us to visit Grand Canyon and spend more time in Linzi which was one of the best part of our trip).

Through the hotel we booked a Tibetan driver called BaSang (巴桑). 巴桑 drove us around Tibet for 6 days. It was a pleasure to have him with us as he drives really safe along the rocky mountains - one of the best drivers we had! He also made efforts to accommodate our requests such as driving from 6am to 8pm due to our tight schedule, helped us avoid tourist traps, and brought us to extra places to experience the Tibetan culture. Would highly recommend to book this honest and skillful driver for your next visit.

Excellent location in the heart of Barkor Street (old town / central Lhasa). Walking distance to major monestaries. Some 15 minute walk to Potala Palace.

The cute little cat 王小虎 is also a highlight of this hotel.

Unfortunately there was heavy drilling in Barkor Street during our visit so the environment was very dusty.

Would definitely return to this hotel should we visit Lhasa again. We really enjoyed the trip.

I was in Tibet for two weeks in this September. For the 6 nights I stayed in Lhasa, I was staying here.

The hotel was well decorated and clean. Just located on Bakhor street, it's only minutes walk to Jokhang Temple, where you can see lots of prayers from many Buddism countries to pray, especially during sunset hours.

The staff here were so lovely and nice!!! They have lots of knowledge on local best-places-to-go, and many connections that help us to find a car, etc. They helped us got our car and driver to the Basecamp for a 4-day package, and also recommended places near Lhasa but seldom visited by tourists, for example, Drak Yerpa Temple - the most gorgeous temple I've ever seen!! They also advised us on bus schedule and route, and also good restaurants nearby. They are very outgoing, speaking very nice English (though I'm a Chinese so I don't really need this service, but I did witness this), responsible and helpful for whatever questions people have.

Also, for non-Chinese nationals, not all the hotels in Tibet can accept foreigners, so Tashitakge is definitely a perfect choice for you!

During casual chat with them, I realise there are still so many places to go in Tibet! I think I'll definitely be back for maybe four more times to Tibet!

The Tashitakge has a really great location, off the Barkhor, but only 1 block off. Pleasantly designed and decorated. Even though this is a budget hotel we never lacked hot water and the beds were comfortable. The owner/manager speaks fluent English and is very friendly and helpful. The only negative for us was relatively weak execution of western breakfasts. We were here 11 nights and would choose the hotel again.

This is a lovely cozy hotel. The owner of the place is very nice and helpful. She gave good directions and suggestions about where to visit and traffic. Other staff are helpful too especially helping to move our luggages. I love the decoration esp. the lock at the door. The food is okay and location is great. Just around the corner u can get fruit, find restaurants and bus stop. The cleanliness is quite good compared with many hotels there. Deco itely recommend it.

However though the top floor is quieter with good WiFi connection, ppl just arriving Tibet may want to think twice. I had a hard time walking up to the top floor on the first day of arrival.

Last but not least, their milk tea served to guests is one of the best I had in the trip :)

My husband & I stayed in this hotel as part of our tour package we booked with Explore Tibet.

I loved the traditional decor & style of the hotel. It was beautiful. Penny, the receptionist, was amazing. Very helpful and spoke good English. The room we got, was small. There wasn't any space to put our luggage or toiletries. Even a simple rack to hang our clothes would have been good. The bed was comfortable. The room came with a humidifier and a heater. The bathroom was clean and the toilet flushed well. Wifi was not the best.

Breakfast was served on the top floor. You have to walk up, no elevator. Didn't mind the exercise. Breakfast was simple.There was toast & eggs and coffee with some Chinese dishes.

Location was fantastic! Walking distance to Barkor street & Jokhang temple. Lots of restaurants and there was a Burger King too.Lots of shopping. Short drive to Potala Palace.

A nice comfortable hotel. We had a pleasant stay.

Location is good. within 5min walking distance to bakhor street. car can't reach the hotel. has to walk less than 5min from the main road.

Room is spacious, 3 of us shared a room with 2 double beds & an additional bed.
Toilet & shower area separated by glass doors, water doesn't wet the whole room.
Hot water and presssure is good enough.
Basic toiletries, indoor disposable slippers, small bottled water, kettle, heater & dehumidifier are provided. wifi speed is good.

Breakfast choices not many..chinese porridge and normal western bread toast with eggs and coffee. but the food tastes good enough.
Staffs are extremely friendly. The owner Penny who mans the counter is really nice.

The only downside is this hotel has no lift. we stayed at level 3, breakfast area is at level 4 rooftop. bec of the altitude of lhasa..going up the stairs cud b quite a challenge. but the hotel staffs will surely help with the luggage. so just need to take it slow to the top. can always enjoy the beautiful interior design of the hotel in a way..afterall the hotel is designed beautifully.

Yes. All of the rooms have private baths and showers. Idk if they provide oxygen. I was concerned about altitude sickness too. But we ski several times a year, and are in altitudes above 11.500 feet. That being said, we did experience mild altitude sickness during our stay in Xining. We stayed there for one day before taking the train to Lhasa. That helped us to acclimate. We did not get sick at all when in Lhasa. I've read that people that fly in get sick more often than people who take the train. Idk how true that is because there were people on the train who also got sick. If you are healthy, then you should have nothing to be concerned about. We drank plenty of water before,during and after our stay in Lhasa.
