We're a tour group of five from Hong Kong. We travelled to Tibet from 18th Augus to 1 Sep for 15 days. The local tourist company arranged us to stay on the 2nd floor of the VIP building of Tibet Hotel after a long journey on 12 hours train with delay arrival. The rooms were big and comfortable, can access free internet too. Weather was fine, so we could open the window for fresh air. Good hot water was provided 24 hours for shower. Bedding was good too. I had good sleeps there for the two days. Breakfast was in above average China standard. Restaurant is on ground floor with buffet. They provided coffee only as you request from the waitress.
Taxi fee from Tibet Hotel to the city centre, "Palace" and Shopping street was about RMB15. However, taxi also took other passengers if not full. If peak hours, like 7pm, it's so diffucut to hire a taxi. They were not follow the fares in the meter but by negotiiation. It's a bit annoying and stressful for the transportation back to hotel.
The hotel also provided free baggage storing service. We left some stuff in the front desk as we moved to the east part of tibet on the following days. As we came back after the trip, we really feel that we had gone home again. Stayed one more day on 4th floor for rest and shopping , then we checked out again and continued our trip to the south part of Tibet, Lin Gee.
I'd would stay in Tibet Hotel if I went to Lhasa again. As my tourist guide says, Tibet hotel is the best in Lhasa, better than Holiday Inn Hotel.
