We reached this hotel that was booked through our travel agency. It could not be our first choice, with long aisles and empty rooms, at least in the building that we stayed. The deco is cheesy from the western point of view, but really well equipped.. We were in December, so at least was good to find hot water and a good hot AC. No English at all. The breakfast is amazing… Good for one night, or two. Enough to visit Shigatse.

Stayed in the hotel as part of Kailash yatra. None of the hotel staff speak English and communication is a challenge for anything. Good place for shower as extremely hot water is available and the bath rooms are big. the bedrooms are big and the wifi is excellent

This hotel situated at the heart of the cut, has the Tibetan touch to the rooms. Huge rooms with multi coloured ceiling attracts the attention . A nice lobby, a very spacious restaurant , good ambience, not so bad free wi-fi connection are the main pros. They won't give free water is one con worth mentioning. A park and a market near by makes you busy in the evening.

I've been to Shigatse a few times and this was the first time I felt very comfortable in my hotel as if there was always someone available and willing to help if needed. The manager is highly motivated and asked for feedback. The first time this ever happened in my ten years of travel in Tibet. Did I mention that he arranged a drive to the Shigatse Peace Aiport? A new wing will open next year and I hope to return and enjoy. Congratulations, Gesar!
