“Great Hotel in Xiahe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

This hotel has everything you could need here in Xiahe. First of all, the location is fantastic, literally right next to the Labrang Monastery and within walking distance from the bus station. There is shopping and plenty of nice places to eat right across the street from the hotel.

Rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. The hotel was recently renovated and the doors have good locks on them, even though there are no lockers here. TV and wifi all worked great during my visit. Showers were hot.

Restaurant is average. Go somewhere else, as there are good places right across the street.

Only knock I would say is I think we got worked a little bit when we hired a driver. We had a driver take us to QInghai Lake. it was expensive, which we expected, but I think a large part went to the front desk. If you are thinking of hiring a driver, get the contact info and talk to the driver yourself. Should save you some money. If you want a good one, message me and I can give you his number. He does not speak English.

The hotel is ok...it is clean, the water was hot and the location is fantastic...

The food in the restaurant is poor as is the service...things ordered will not be delivered but still be charged...

We were there for 4 days and a cleaner never entered our room and upon checkout the desk lady ignored us for 20 minutes while serving Chinese and Tibetan speakers only...when finished with them she walked to the restaurant leaving us swinging...

Another Tibetan group came through five minutes later and she returned... Served them and then asked what we had wanted...the hotel is fine but the service is terrible.

Only one staff member spoke any English. It took ages to check out because the staff ignored us until we protested. The WiFi worked in our room for a total of 2 hours in 4 days despite asking for it to be fixed. The room was never cleaned only the bin emptied once in 3 days.
Only went to the restaurant once as the ordered breakfast never arrived but they were happy to charge for it with no apology.
The only thing going for this place was hot water.

Very clean, though simple lodgings. Showers were excellent considering the location, water very hot. Security good too, though the dorm should have lockers. Staff reserved but helpful, resturant could do with more warmth.

We stayed there 3 nights and enjoyed our stay . Nice clean rooms recently renovated. Nice hot shower. The owner speaks very good english, he is always available to give you information and traveling tips. We followed his recommendations to go for a hike with nice view above Xiahe. We also used his service for a day trip to Ganjia grassland. We enjoyed it.we would highly recommend this hotel !

We stayed 3 nights at this clean, comfortable guesthouse. Losang, the owner, speaks excellent English and was most welcoming, helpful and friendly and can arrange transport from Lanzhou tours around the area The location is perfect for visiting the nearby monastery, cafés and shops.

I stayed at the Overseas Tibetan Hotel for one night during a school trip to Qing Hai and Gan Su provinces. Our planned accommodations were at the Tara Guesthouse, which is very well-located and a good place to meet travelers from all over China, including pilgrims visiting the Labrang Monastery. However, after two weeks of travel with limited bathroom facilities, my colleague and I were hoping for comfortable beds, private bathroom, and hopefully a shower. We walked a few doors down from Tara Guesthouse and asked to look at a room at the Overseas Tibetan Hotel. The carpets in the hallways were all covered with sheets, and there was a constant beeping sound on the third floor. The room we were shown was clean, had a private bath, and an enclosed shower, the first we had seen on the trip. We stayed for one night and were very pleased with the accommodation. There was also a nice view from the room. I would recommend this hotel for a traveler staying in Xiahe looking for some of the comforts of home.
