Great Location, Quality of Rooms Poor

The hotel was right in the middle of Lhasa, situated only 50m away from the Jokhang square which was an excellent location and not very expensive with a double room for 200 rmb.

The building is quite run down and the quality of the rooms differs significantly. We stayed for 9 nights and have stayed at several rooms. First room was fine with only a non-functional window lock, second room didn't have a working shower and a broken toilet and in the third room the sink wasn't working properly with a broken bathtub meaning a bathroom flood every morning.

So overall conclusion, location is excellent however the hotel and rooms are badly maintained and run down. We would recommend first carefully inspecting the room before accepting it!

... at the site entrance this morning even though I had arranged to meet him and the owner at the hotel two hours later. After three different reasons why he didn't show the prior morning and the owner telling me he thinks he might have gone partying a little late I was not overly impressed with him and I think he figured by showing up there it would make up for it. Unfortunately it just made everything worse. I think this is the fastest I have ...

... hand painted. Unbelievable! It was amazing how much the scenery did change, more life coming out. Small shrubs and mosses I suppose. We also drove past a glacier. Sitting now on the highway to Lhasa with car troubles. That would be right, neither of us have been to the toilet all day and now we brake down! Irony.... Today was a beautiful drive but looking forward to getting out of the car for a couple of days in Lhasa. Side note: so many dogs here and so ...

... stupas,and monk dormitories as well as halls for prayer and places where the Dalai Lama can receive visitors. The palace was used as the winter residence of the Dalai Lama and was where the main religious and political affairs were played out. We were able to go inside and see the tombs of many of the previous Dalai Lamas as well as three of the temples that were and still are used for worship. We were not allowed to ...

... along the way. The monks hopefully will enjoy it and see my face and travels. I feel a little part of me is in this wonderful place. No problems. I have two other cameras that I use more than my little one.
the Monastery is perched on top of the mountains. It's a large place for monks to study guided by the elder Lamas. We watched the younger ones quiz each other in matters of religion or knowledge of ...

... our tally up to 5 we have now seen. From here it was back down to the high plateau through yak grazing ranges before we again climbed to the 5220m Jis Tsugla Pass, for another stop and hazy views of the north side of Everest and Cho Oyo, the first and seventh highest mountains in the world. We arrived around dinner time in Xigatse and checked into a much nicer hotel for two nights, although still without heat.

Xigatse is where Tibet began to amaze us. The ...
