This is a small boutique hotel very nicely done and all . there are not many good options to stay in Shangri-La . The rooms are wonderfully done and all there are however two things the lighting is super low and there is no door to the bathroom .there is just a sheer drape hanging which is kind of uncomfortable . rest the atmosphere is serene there is sakyamuni temple and monastery nearby .They only have one Tibetan restaurant which is a limitation for vegetarians or people not accustomed to or not want to have the Tibetan food . They have the same very basic breakfast everyday .they can definitely provide a better breakfast and not the store bought muffins and white bread etc and can probably introduce some more international dishes in their menu .The Manager Mr Nema is very helpful and a smiling local guy . overall its a nice place to stay .
