Great location in the city center and near Jokhang Temple, but the car cannot access to the hotel entrance, require 1-2 minute walk. The staffs are friendly and helpful. Great experience and stay in the Tibetan/Nepal style hostel.
This place has a nice facade but that's about it. It lacks basic facility for a reasonable living condition in the hot summer days - no AC, no fans, the windows are useless because there are no screens behind them so if you open them all bugs come in, and to keep the blinds open means you'd have no privacy in this narrow and crowded alley. I've been backpacking to more than 30 countries and it's not like I'm expecting luxury hotel, but with the price they are charging I'm expecting at least livable condition (when I book it the most luxurious St Regis and Shangri La cost only $10-$20 more). Huge disappointment to the point they could be sued if they were in US! In my 12-yr traveling it's the first time we have to leave and change hotel after check in. When complaining to hotel manager he said they never said they have AC and fans, etc. So you don't think non-disclosure of such important facts is sketchy practice? The weather in Lhasa now is not the same as the old days. They lie to you about no other hotels offer AC. They said I can write whatever review I like and they'll deal with me after. Very rude and malicious customer service! They completely ignore the fact that we rushed to hospital for altitude sickness right after check in, came back and found out it's DANGEROUS for us (and anyone) not to be able to rest in this altitude. For your own safety please find somewhere else to stay where hotel is at least transparent and honest about what they have and offer you at least something to deal with the heat. Do not be fooled by the pretty facade, the innocent Tibetans working there and location - you can get around Lhasa using taxi for $2-$3 (use Didi app). This hotel is just a tourist trap for foreigners and run by people without a heart. Be careful and be ware!
Very nice decoration with local characteristics
The staff is friendly and cooperative with good English. It's convenient location within the old city. The excellent Tibetan restaurant.
The minimal breakfast. The accessories and functionality of the bathroom and shower. The cleanliness of the floor and the bathroom
Bed could be more comfortable and shower took a while to get hot.
