Kyichu Hotel (Jiqu Fandian)
Ranked #6 of 364 Hotels in Lhasa
Reviewed May 27, 2012

With a dizzying number of places to stay in Lhasa, look no further unless you want to spend a mint at the hoity toity St. Regis. I've had the great pleasure of being able to stay at the Kyichu Hotel four times now over the past years and it's become my home away from home in Tibet. This last time I was there for 17 days as a I deepened my understanding of Lhasa.
In a nutshell:
* The location can't be beat...walking distance to the Potala, Jokhang, Barkhor, grocery stores, good places to eat, blind massage studios (not to be missed).
* The staff are ALL superb....friendly, smiling and just great.
* The restaurant is super.
* The couryard is an oasis among the clamor and toot-tooting of Beijing Lu outside the front door.

I've travelled extensively and the Kyichu is the one place I look forward the most to returning to.

Tashi delek!

Room Tip: The newer wing has a number of superior rooms. My favorite is 109.

We moved here from Hotel Yashi Phunkhang Heritage . It was down the street. We were much happier here. Our room was in the new building and had nice wood floors, not cold concrete like at the Heritage and central heat, not two space heaters placed on the floor. Another difference was the restaurant was open and bright and the food was good. The only problem with this hotel was getting the shower water to be warm, not cold or too hot .We tried two rooms with the same problem. The staff was very nice and efficient.

I enjoyed every minute of my stay, feeling totally relaxed and feel so much at home. All staff & management are service oriented, extending warm and genuine hospitality which is so lacking in most 5 star rated hotels. It's a bliss to have coffee by the garden courtyard in the midst of peach blossoms, tinkling of water cascade from the mantra water fountain, fluttering of prayer flags, and birds twitters. Hotel is centrally located and is within easy walking distance to most must-see places in Lhasa. There's WIFI service provided and fret not if you didn't bring your lap top as it's also provided in the restaurant for internet access without charges.
All in all, it's a good place to stay for the value and experience.

I had booked this hotel through the Internet and what a fabulous surprise upon arrival! The room was large, warm, with a fabulous double/headed shower and a really wonderful terrace overlooking the garden. The staff was excellent and only too willing to help and I thorougly enjoyed my stay here. Also, the hotel is ideally situated to visit the main tourist sites in Lhasa i.e. Barkhor, Jokhand and Potala.

From other experiences on this journey this hotel was a pleasant surprise. Rooms great ..plenty of room, whole establishment clean & tidy. Breakfast very good, good WiFi. Easy walk to most of what one would want to see in Lhasa (Potala Palace, Jokhange etc) . Staff friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Try for a room on upper floor at rear ..quieter

We stayed here for about a week in June 2011. The location is not far from the Barkhor and Potala and the hotel is clean, with friendly staff.
The food is excellent, although with tour groups a constant every day service can get a little slow when they are stretched.
There is a courtyard garden where you can sit and have a coffee or meal or write some journal notes.
I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: My room was on a higher floor and overlooked the courtyard so it was quiet all the time. I cannot c...

We stayed for three nights in this hotel.
Very good, clean and close to central Lhasa - about 10 minutes walk to Jokhang temple and Barkhor Square, about 20 minutes to Potala Palace.
