House of Shambhala is a beautiful old Tibetan style house right in the centre of the old town. Our massive room was beautifully decorated and we loved the location down a small lane where we could watch the everyday life of Lhasa. Unlike some guests, we had an ample supply of hot water. Our only negative was that the room was very cold (in November) and the tiny heater made little difference. After a day out, it is nice to have somewhere warm to sit and unwind and discuss the day's activities. We sometimes sat on the roof in the sun, but some days the wind was too cold. It would have been nice to have a heater in the restaurant where guests could gather. Other than this, a stay at House of Shambhala is a memorable experience.
