We stayed 2 nights there and we highly recommend this place. Perfectly located, very central, in the old city. The rooms are nicely décorated in tibetan style, clean and cosy. Quiet place close to the busy streets. Above all, Rose will welcome you so nicely! She speaks very good english (and is starting to speak french too), she is very...

Rose and her boyfriend were brilliant. We didn't know about the free airport pickup because we had no gmail access in China. Luckily we had hard copy of all our bookings and when we phoned the evening before, Rose arranged for her boyfriend to pick us up. She is fun and looked after us well. Great breakfast and a day...

We travelled 25 days in China and always chose to stay in small boutique hotels. Timeless Inn was one of our favourites. It is owned by the lovely Rose and her partner Azon and they do hospitality so well. They are warm, welcoming and friendly and Azon cooks a mean breakfast, just talk to him about your requirements as he...

Stayed here for one night. Rose and Azon the owners were really kind, helpful and caring. The Inn is cute. Tibeten style wooden building with a little terrace on the upper floor. They have chinese style beds and western style beds (softer), so make sure you ask for whichever you wish. Breakfast can be either western style or chinese style....

The Timeless Inn is becoming a legend in Shangri-La for its generous hospitality and traditonal Tibetan comfort. And it's all true! The hosts, Rose and Arong, are unfailingly friendly and helpful, and the rooms are a delight. Their travel advice, their willingness to arrange transfers and the fine breakfasts are all bonuses.

A friendly and warm welcome will be found here in this lovely guesthouse. It is a traditional Tibetan home with lovely wooden features and local textiles used in the rooms. The room was warm and the electric blanket welcome as it was cold in April.

Absolutely LOVED our stay at the Timeless Inn. The owners are a fantastic couple, so warm, welcoming, and helpful. You feel like you are visiting friends rather than staying in a hotel. They had great advise on what to see in the time we had and also were very informative about the city and Tibetan culture. The house is lovely,...

Lovely atmosphere in the rooms, reception and breakfast area! Friendly English speaking staff who were very nice and helpful. We liked it a lot, although the beds were a bit hard for us! We would love to come back some other time!
