We stayed 4 nights at a room in the ground floor, the room is full of mildew smell especially on the carpet. We requested for refresher spray but it doesn't help, we had no choice to bear with it. This hotel doesn't have elevator, so please make sure to request for room at lower level.. We have to climb up...

The location is very good, in the centre of the old part of Lhasa, just a few minutes’ walk from Jokhang. It’s on a main road, but my room faced inwards to the courtyard, and there was little noise. The building is in reasonable shape. There’s no lift. My room was cosy and clean, decorated in Tibetan style. The bed...

A friendly hotel with good wifi. Breakfast was included in the restaurant next door. Rooms were clean and comfy. A great location to explore Lhasa, nothing seemed too far away. We stayed there on two separate occasions with our tour. . . . . . .
