I would not stay here again if I had a choice. It does not deserve its rank as top hotel in Xiahe. All the basic necessities for a traveller were not in place - hot water was irregular, the room was cold, blankets were insufficient and the front desk charges whatever rate they feel like charging. On arriving at 10:30pm, there was no hot water. I had to go down to the front desk to inquire and was told by the staff that I had to wait 30 minutes as it was all used up. It took more than 30 minutes for the hot water to be available, and after that, I had to shower in a big hurry as the hot water goes off at midnight. The room was cold and was missing blankets. When I asked them for more blankets, I was told that none were available. They said each room had two blankets, and I said mine had only one, and they insisted there were no more available. Eventually, one staff went into the office and came out with a blanket, but that was after a lot of wasted time. To make my stay experience even more unsatisfying, I overheard the woman at the front desk quote two travellers RMB220 for the same kind of room that I had that I was charged RMB280 for. This was just a few minutes after I had extended my stay for another night making it three nights stay when the two travellers were staying for one night. When I asked them about this, they simply said that they had misquoted the two travellers.
