This hotel was recommended to us by the tour operator we used for the Lhasa stage of our China trip. It was listed as a 4-star hotel, but after having stayed in many hotels in China I've learnt to knock a star off the rating the hotel claims. So I was expecting to get a hotel that held a reasonable 3-star level, and that is pretty much what we got.
Our room was on the 2nd floor in the right hand wing facing the inner courtyard. The room was fairly small, and the bathroom was pretty basic. However, both the room and bathroom was reasonably clean. The bed was quite small and a little bit hard, but that is quite common in hotels in this part of the world so about as expected.
The buffet breakfast was pretty good, with a large selection of food including fruits. The main issue with the breakfast was that it was served in a restaurant right at the back of the hotel, so a bit of a trek from our room.
During our stay my wife felt unwell, possibly caused by the altitude, although no definite cause were ever found. She visited the hotel doctor and was prescribed some Chinese medicine as well as some Western medicine. She found the Chinese medicine to be completely ineffective and only made thigns worse, and it was also hard to swallow.
The hotel staff was quite friendly, although most spoke quite poor English.
