“Best choice in Lhasa”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

Stayed there one night and got upgrade to Suite room due to my SPG platinum card. Love the garden and architecture. The hotel is very private and surrounded by its own yards. One of my great memory there was that while I was having breakfast, it's snowing outside, which was really beautiful. You can see snow mountains from the restaurant.

This is by far the best hotel in Tibet and was worth each RMB. I love their architecture which is a combination of modern elements + Tibetean style and at the same time the rather conservative St Regis style.
The rooms are huge and clean. Food & service great... although I agree that the staff should pay more attention to details (clock in the room wasn't set, the mini bar not cool, cupboard above TV dusty, one light bulb was broken, changing room at the pool super cold, etc.). Btw - somebody kept putting cucumber and tomatos into our room. Is this supposed to be a "Tibetean snack"?

Just came back from a two day trip at the St Regis and I can't help myself from jotting this down. Still reeling with excitement to go to sleep.

Location: a 5 minute walk from the city mosque and Tibetan Handicraft Center (worth a visit to support the local craftsmen), then another 5 minutes to the Jokhor Temple and the never ending wave of pilgrims. Potala Palace is just 10 minutes by car.

View: we insisted on a Potala Palace view room. And boy was it worth it. The structure is just breathtakingly beautiful. The only other building that stunned me as much was the Taj Mahal. As with the Taj, the Potala is to be appreciated at dawn, at dusk, at night, in broad daylight... and the only way you can get this full spectrum is to stay in a room with the view. Trust me, nothing beats waking up in the morning and seeing it shrouded in mist, or getting out of the shower and catching a glimpse of it at the magic hour!

Service: I emailed the hotel beforehand to tell them this trip was to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. So upon arrival we found the room decked with rose petals, a bouquet of red roses sitting in the living room, and our dinner at the western restaurant was also decorated with extra flowers. Antony, our butler, tried his best to keep us pampered. Green tea was served when we wanted, with delicious brownies and cheese cake and biscuits. When I complained that the temperature in the room was a bit toasty, he dashed in and opened the window to air the room. He gave shopping and restaurant recommendations... I can't think of a time when service was needed and wasn't delivered straight away and with a smile.

Food: perhaps my only small complaint is the breakfast buffet (rather limited options) but dinner was fine; just happy to have such crisp romaine lettuce for my Caesar salad. The food at the Chinese restaurant was great but a little pricey.

Spa: it is located in a standalone building across from the main building, thus makes it a bit difficult to just hop over in flimsy gym clothes with freezing temperature outside. The pool looks spectacular, but the attendant told us the heating wasn't working so the water was around 20 degrees instead of the usual 28, a bit too chilly for a dip (swim was out of the question given the altitude). The gym was under renovation, though with the altitude I wouldn't brave the treadmill or any weights....

In the end, all I want to say is a big THANK YOU to Antony and the staff of St Regis Lhasa for making this a most memorable wedding anniversary for my wife and me!

The hotel is very nice. The room is spacious and service is generally good. Needless to say that the room is very clean and makes you feel very good after a long day walking around the city. It has an extremely good Chinese restaurant. Very impressed with that restaurant. The Shangri-La Hotel will be built soon so would be interesting to compare those two. However, at this time, this is the only place to stay if you can afford it.

This is the best hotel in Lhasa. It is very nice physically but the service is spotty. No Tibet nationals work at the facility for the most part. This is a Chinese run hotel and they don't really get service. The food was good but generally the same buffet day and night. The wine is very expensive but there is really no alternative. The Spa was clean and inviting but the messages were weak and expensive $100+. The location is excellent and the views are something to treasure.

Room Tip: Try to get a room that looks out toward the mountains

The Hotel is probably the best in town, but I was told there are more 5stars in construction.
Then managment will need to care a bit more for the details, one can expect in St. Regis and given the price.

The two (out of five) points are because expectations are high, as high as the price.
I paid (low season) 1300 rmb w/o breakfast, around 1600 incl. bf., ~3.000 as in highseason would be too expensive.

Of course the rooms are quite nice, pretty big, but it is the details, management is encouraged to have a better look for.
E.g. the battery of the remote was close to dead, coffee-machine was missing and tea/coffee not refilled, carpet was not really cleaned, predecessor in room took all pens, papers and envellopes, no refill on that either ....
and why having a tv-station-list in first place if tv is programmed very different?

+ 10 min walk to downtown
+ rooms are quite nice and pretty big
- open bathroom
- fruits-table: five cherry-tomatoes and a small cucumber
- (western) breakfast was poor, esp. given the price, so little cold cut and cheese, bread was very dry, just two kinds of fruits, one kind of yoghurt, no muesli, cappuccino was good, espresso very bad ....
+ room was warm
- aircon was pretty loud
- internet-access was a disaster, but that might be out of control by the hotel
+ staff very FRIENDLY and HELPFULL

Room Tip: I guess the 111x rooms have access to what is called the lake, a small pond in a garden area, as 211...

We liked the hotel very much. We stayed twice and for 5 nights. The food was very good, particularly at the Chinese restaurant. The service is not bad, though it was patchy. Some staff are good and others need training. This is the only 5 star hotel we would consider staying in Lhasa but Shangri-la is opening the hotel very soon so would be interesting to see the competition. The only problem we had was that we were bitten by bed bugs in both occasions. That is not acceptable for 5 stars St Regis.

Room Tip: Try to get rooms facing the courtyard. We were putting into a room facing outside which they got so...
