Based on TripAdvisor reviews we upgraded our hotel in Zhongdian (aka Shangri-La) to this Songtsam hotel (#1 in Zhongdian). It was an excellent decision and it felt a great privilege to stay here. The room (photo attached) was large, clean and comfortable with a king-size bed, floor-level table and cushions and good views over the lake in front of the Songtsam Lama temple. The hospitality was excellent and included ginger tea on arrival and a bowl of fruit in the room.
Breakfast was good and satisfied our western tastes after many Chinese meals.
The hotel is pleasantly small and quiet in lovely surroundings. It was easily our favourite hotel on our 3 week trip that included two excellent 5-star hotels.
