“Great place 2B@”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

Friendly staff, great travel advice from the host Mr Park. A very nice common area cum dining area. Conveniently located just off the burnt down part of the old town, just a short walk away from the Hundred Chicken Temple (at the top of the hill) and Turtle Hill Temple.

Tavern 47 is a beautiful Tibetan building, with comfy warm beds and a common area that is warmed by a stove in the evening- perfect for tea and a chat.

The owner is friendly, very helpful and can speak brilliant English, Korean, Chinese and probably more! He can give advice on activities and even take you himself.

Food great and affordable, do try the Korean specialities as well as the Yak burger (of course).

Hot showers, washing facilities and lovely outside areas to relax.

You won't find this place by yourself as the fire destroyed many landmarks; best to get your taxi driver to call the hostel or call yourself.

Highly recommended for those on a budget in Shangri-la.

This guesthouse has comfortable beds (with electric blankets), plenty of hot water, a fantastic common area with a wood stove, good food, an amazing selection of local beer (Tibetan Pale Ale!!!!), a Turkish cat, and the best host you could ask for.

I spent only 1 night there. The host is really kind and friendly, especially he speaks well in English. I booked double bed and share bathroom. The bathroom is clean. I have a good time at this place. Recommend to spend your time there.

I stayed in 5 beds dorm and luckily I got a seperate bed, not a bunk bed, by the window. The bed is comfort with electric blanket. The WIFI worked fast and the owner speaks English very well.
Tip:
- The direction whioch the hotel provided in Hostelworld is easily to follow.
After I got off the bus (Dali-Shangrila bus) , walked to the front door which plenty of taxi drivers who offered me a ride in Chinese. I walked across the crossroad to the bus station and took bus N0 1. (green yellow bus) which paring there and apid 1 CNY. After 10 minutes ride, passed the hospital, passed the first corner which is the nearest to walk to the golden wheel and I got off the corner which there is a parking lot on the left side,Giordano shop at the opposite, saw police car was parking there at the parking lot ,prohibited people to get inside the constructed site. I just walk straight through the underconstruction site and turned right (Quite confusing when police told thet you cannot get inside! and finally they helped me find the hotel in the map and pointed me to get inside the ruined town)
- The hotel is across the street from the police north station ( north station)

I felt regret that i had only 1 night stay at Tavern 47 during my Shangri-La trip in May 2013. I mean i have to spend more days there!

This guest house is super lovely. It is run by a young couple. Christine, a Naxi & her husband is a Korean. You won't feel bored due to the couple is really full of fun & they have fascinating love story!

The bedroom looks great! Cozy, clean with Tibetan feel. Location is good too. Sifang Square is just around the corner. From here to the chicken temple is not too far. Don't miss out on chicken temple if you stayed at Tavern 47. Believe me, the view is superb! & the most important is......there's no entrance free.

I will definitely go back to Tavern 47 during my 2nd trip to Shangri-la!
