Stayed here as it was part of a group trip. The hotel is budget and provided everything needed for a budget hotel. If you are wanting good water pressure, consistant hot water, fancy bedding/beds, wifi in rooms, then this is not the place for you. If you are easy going about mentioned points and budget conscious, then this hotel had... More

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. The rooms are quite nice, quite clean, but very quiet: the beds are hard but I slept like a baby. Breakfast does not propose much choice, but the fresh and unsweetened yogurt is very good, as is the muesli and you can order omelet.

I travel a lot and most of these reviews are quite negative and by reading thru the lines it looks like the average tourists chose to stay in a budget hotel and didn't like it. Here is my feeling: 1) Budget means budget in every country so if you want clean, perfect condition and neat, don't do budget hotels anywhere... More

The company I traveled with booked us here. We had no choice. Check-in took a long time. I was assigned a room by the street without any heater. It was extremely cold. I had a very hard king-size bed. I paid single supplement so I expected a half-way decent room. It so happened that my tour advisor was in Lhasa... More

We had a group of 31 people on pilgrimage. We stayed 2 nights, on 31st Sept and on 11th Sept. And on both occasions, we were charged unreasonably for room items "damaged" as claimed by the manager and staff. We felt ripped off because the toilet bowl was cracked in the first place before checking in. And on another night,... More

This hotel is located reasonably close to the city center. The rooms are comfortable and clean. We stayed in two different rooms. One was near the street and noisy. It also took about 30 minutes to get hot water in the morning. (Maybe this is because we got up early. It was not an issue in the second room). Breakfast... More

Good location and nice people. Internet in Lobby and wi-fi... forget the star ratings. The beds were really hard.. think box springs without a mattress. But that is common in China and they do not weigh as much as westerners. This is a tour hotel and rates are everything. Was it the worst hotel ever in Tibet?? No... that would... More
