I stayed at the Mandala Hotel as part of a tour package. The hotel is beautiful and clean. The only thing I would change is that in the part of the hotel where I was staying the rooms did not have air conditioning or heat. Tibet has crazy weather and I was freezing at night! I put on my long underwear, shirt, sweatshirt, and big jacket and I was still shivering. I finally went to the front desk and asked them for a heater (in English!). The hotel clerk understood me and gave me a hand held heater that worked like a charm.
Upon checking in I was told that I could get dinner if I went to the restaurant of the hotel. I walked up there (through a courtyard and up to the third floor) and it was an empty room. It wasn't clear to me if they would serve me a meal or not - there were no menus. I was confused so I left!
The hotel has 5 computers hooked up to the internet which is very convenient.
