Like most hotels in Tingri province this is not a place to stay inside your room as long it is not absolutely necessary.
In October, when the temperatures drop well below freezing, the room temperature is dropping down rapidly too - my water bottle was frozen next morning and I guess it was about 5°C below zero in the room - so wear everything you carry or bring a good sleeping bag. Heating is not the only one problem in spring and fall, there's no water at all (expect for the kitchen), most people have to use nature for doing there businesses and brushing their teeth...
The kitchen and the common room were warm (even in the early morning) and hot tea was offered all the time, meals were the best above 5000 meters I ever had.
The terrace offers a splendid view of Everst's north flank and the Rongbuk monastery, and that's the reason to get there!
