It is an average rating for Tibet. With three of us travelling we were given a triple room with a toilet and shower. The carpet didn't look like it had been vacuumed in 20 years. The room was cold but everything is manageable – unlike some places we’ve stayed at in Tibet.
It took forever and a day for the hot water to come through in the shower but when it did it was like heaven on earth. The shower water came down directly onto the bathroom floor. This always seems so crazy to us. We found there was nowhere to hang clothing in our bathroom and nowhere to hang wet towels after our showers. At least it was a nice hot shower though!
Breakfast was downstairs at a little café next to the hotel. We had been given three breakfast tokens to hand in at the café. It was quite a nice breakfast with each of us having a bread roll, a warm hard-boiled egg, some cucumber sticks, tomato, fried peanuts plus two little cakes and an endless cup of tea.
