Fantastic traditional Tibetan guesthouse. Rooms were exactly what you need and had a nice cosy feel. The restaurant had delicious food and the breakfast was hearty and yummy as well.
We were starting a bike tour and the owners were so accommodating allowing us to pack out gear onto the bikes in the living area and store boxes of food in the storeroom during our stay. Then, after a very friendly send-off, they found a food box we left there, called our guide and dropped it off to where we were having our lunch 30kms down the road! You don't find that kind of service anywhere else, those guys were great! Highly recommended.
The rooftop terrace with views of the Potala is a great place to enjoy a Lhasa beer!
