“Lovely Place”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

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 .

Room Tip: Take the monastery view

This was a lovely boutique hotel, tucked conveniently within the old city, footsteps away from the main square for dancing with the Tibetans, locals and other tourists. We loved the personal service at this hotel, and the BBQ on the roof, was divine, and with a great view of the main monastery in the old town. A lovely property and we would highly recommend it.

This is the mail I wrote to the hotel manager:

Dear Mr. Nyima
Our wonderful journey to china has come to an end and we are back home. I would like to thank you again for your kind hospitality, for caring and for being a wonderful host. Staying at your boutique hotel was more than enjoying a superbly organized establishment of highest quality at aperect loacation. Your personal involvement in taking care of your clients gave us the feeling of being home far from home. Both, my wife and I were specifically touched by your help when my wife became sick, even waiving the costs for the oxygen bottles which you voluntarily provided.
No doubt, the Arro Khampa under your leadership is a place which deserves the highest recommendation for everyone who plans to come to your city.

Very best regards

After a long journey of travelling, Arro Kumpa made our first time in China memorable. This small boutique hotel is in the old Town of Shengri-la, the room is very nice, good design with high quality of decoration, very comfortable especially its big bed! We had a BBQ dinner with the beautiful view of the temple. Hotel owner and his staff have an excellent service mind...we are appreciated.

This is a fabulous hotel and the owner and manager are wonderful and were of great assistance to me. I stayed one night, after a flight was cancelled and I missed out on staying two nights. The hotel is clean, well-maintained, located right in the centre of the old town. From the front facade it doesn't look like a large space but once you enter the doors it's beautiful inside with lovely wood panelling and stone. It's been well-maintained and has a beautiful outlook at the nearby temple. The service here was exceptional - I was putting together two bicycles whilst staying and the owner was so kind to find a local second hand pump for me after discovering that my pump didn't work on the tires I had for the wheels. Nothing was too difficult when requested and we were made to feel at home. It doesn't really have a hotel feel about it, more a boutique guest house, but one that is modern yet still maintaining traditional charm and authentic architecture. The breakfast was ample and delicious and the dinner was great. I had the hot pot which again was massive. My partner had the yak, which wasn't to our taste but good to try in the area. Highly recommend the hotel.

I found it through my friends and spent really wonderful time there for few days traveling in Shangrila. The location is very good and so convenient to the old town, actually, it's close to the famous temple inside of the old town. I was surprised when I walked in cause there's a long special Tibetan style corridor, very impressive. I also like the view outside through the room you can see the temple directly, very cool place. The room is clean and comfortable, equipment is new. And also, it's a place to meet new friends there. Strongly suggest it to friends and will come back again next year.

Room Tip: Rooms with outside view for temple is best choice

“Arro Khampa” is a warm hearted greeting in the eastern Tibetan “Kham” dialect. These words pay homage to the ancient tradition of welcoming caravans and travelers along the Ancient Tea Horse Road with a firm invitation to sit down, warm up, and take nourishment and respite from the rigors of travel. It’s English equivalent is “Hey friend, I bid you welcome.”Such greetings underlined the inherent risks and sense of adventure along one of the world’s great trade routes.
