There are few redeeming features to this hotel. The hot water system for a shower is tepid at best, all rooms reek of cigarette smoke, the staff have no understanding of customer service and do not care. Sure it's tired, and more geared to Chinese tourists but there are better choices in neighbouring cities - strongly suggest you look elsewhere.

Stayed a night and while I was sick so might bot be doing the property justice. Lobby and dining area were lavish though old. The room was very old looking but clean enough (didnt get into nooks and crannies). Heating required maintenance to come in a couple of times to get to work. Relied on blankets for warmth Not a...

This place is not up to western standards. While we were there in "off season", it still was a challenge. One of our rooms had little or no heat and the other had marginal heat. Hot water was at a premium and insufficient for everyone to shower. Food was ok, not great or memorable.

We spent one night at the Gyantse Hotel enroute to Everest Base Camp and, based on the other reviews, did not have high expectations. We were given two "suites" in the B wing of the main building and they were spacious and filled with Tibetan blankets and nic-naks. Bathrooms are western style (a welcome relief when traveling in this region)...

We had been travelling for over a month before reaching this hotel so my expectations were realistic! However, they were so rude to us which is why it has the poor score. In truth the room was OK, cleanish and very basic, but both dinner and breakfast were inedible. Plus they did a good job at losing our passports, they...

The best thing about this hotel is that it has fast wifi and the BBC. Our room was a bit shabby and we couldn't get hot water in the shower. The bathroom was missing tiles and the toilet seat was loose but the bed was comfortable and the room was relatively clean.

If you like communist era architecture with wildly dated designs and dysfunctional appliances, you're going to love this place. On a positive note this was the quietest night's sleep we had in our whole trip, probably on account of the fact that the hotel was probably only 5 to 10% occupied. The place wasnt terrible but it was hard to...

We ended up at the Gyantze hotel by accident as the Yeti Hotel that we were supposed to stay at did not honor our reservation. At first glance, the three China star hotel exited with a characterful and historic ambience. The opulent dining hall with its big murals and golden fabric covered chairs was not quite matched by the morning...

We had been warned that standards in Tibet were not the same as in western hotels for obvious reasons. I was pleased we were only staying one night as the room was small. the bed was hard rather than firm, but still got a good night's sleep. It was quiet. No wifi in room so everyone in our tour group...

The Gyantse Hotel was a positive surprise. Stayed there on Oct. 26th for one night. The hotel is in the middle of town in a good location.Lobby is huge and nicely decorated.
