Great Location, Quality of Rooms Poor

Reviewed Sep 28, 2011

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!

Gooooood Morning Tibet

... weird Chinese chocolate moon pie looking thing for dessert. Doubling back we wander into a multi storey mall, for a quick look and then down an alley to a LP recommended hole in the wall called Pentoc, for some traditional Tibet fare. I've got daal baht belly, so trying to stick to plain food for now, we entertain ourselves making up the dialogue for the soap opera on in the corner much to the amusement of our waitress. So that was day 2 in Tibet. Another brilliant ...

... out she was no longer in front of my door so I left the food in a little opened bag. I hope they ate it this morning! At 8:40 am we started our drive on the Southern Friendship Highway crossing over the summit of Kamba La (4,794 meters). This is where we stopped to see the tranquil turquoise waters of Lake Yamdrok, one of the three holiest lakes in Tibet. It was snowing a bit when we got off the van to take a few pictures ...

... we'll see Everest again, this time from the Chinese side. In Nepal we walked for 3 days there and 3 days back, my knees will not let me forget the way down. In Tibet we will be doing the third-world bus bounce all the way – I suspect this time a different part of my anatomy may be complaining.
Yesterday it was warm and the scenery from our window was predominately dusty hills and plains, we even saw some sand dunes in the distance. But this morning we awoke to ...

China, unexpectedly

... the yard on two sides was a barracks, which the guard, who was quite friendly, though he kept his finger over his trigger guard and never ceased scanning the courtyard, told me were for pilgrims, to use as they stayed. Here and there around the palace grounds are scattered little sunken pool areas with Hindu iconography subtly displayed and, though deserted at that hour, well tended, if crumbling from age. The palace itself, when we finally got in, was a bit of a surprise. It ...

... Tibetan Grand Prix on this road, and the driver seems to be doing a dry-run. Slow down on the hairpin bends - why would you wanna do that??

So Gandan monastery is huge. Apparently there used to be over 100 monasteries on this site, but i think something may have happened which meant most of them got destroyed or something? (Shhh, don't mention the Cultural Revolution.) But fair dos, the Chinese seem to have acknowledged that destroying and ...
