“Wonderful welcome on a cold day!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2012

What impressed us most about the Shiner hotel was the welcome! Our group was greeted with steaming hot and fragrant towels and delicious ginger tea. Our rooms were unusual...the beds were on platforms...but they were comfortable. The heat came on at 6 pm but there were nice electric blankets to keep us warm too. It was a nice experience and the service was excellent.

We stayed at this hotel late April 2012 and our guide mentioned that we were to stay in the Holy Palace but other travel agents said it was bad. The room had worn furinture and dirty carpet. We found empty match boxes in the draws which we used to stop the window rattling. The bathroom had mould on the shower tiles and ther were no toiletries except a communal bottle of shampoo(lucky we always take ours with us). and you were given a tiny roll toilet paper a day, pity if you ran out. There was a rack of condoms on basin.
On checking out we had to wait while our room was checked to see if we had stolen any furniture or the condoms before we were given back our security deposit. This is a Chinese Tourist Hotel and no other Chinese was subjected to this check.
There are 5 star hotel not far from this hotel.
Shangra la country is very beautiful and a visit is worth it but make sure the travel agent does tell the truth about the hotels

Our travel agent booked us into the Shiner Hotel in Shangri-La. The hotel is a 20 minute drive from the Old Town. It is in an industrial area, with construction noise from early morning until 7 p.m. daily. The rooms have no heat between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m., in spite of the very cold (2 degrees Celcius!) temperatures. The carpet was filthy, the desk chair torn, and there was a leak in the bathroom. No one in the hotel spoke a word of English. We were informed that this was the best four-star hotel in Shangri-La! Needless to say, we moved two hours after arrival to a more comfortable and charming inn in the Old Town.
