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!

Tibet! The roof of the world.

... Tibet is found. The monastery was built by the first Dalai Lama in 1447. Amongst all we saw, I can honestly say that each and every sight we visited was spectacular and I learned so much about the Tibetan people and of course the Buddhist culture. It was now midday on day four of our tour and this is when... (pardon the expression) **** hit the fan. We had just finished monastery when the group found out that the visas for 2 members of our group had expired, the day ...

Sunday So Visit A Monastery

Today we were off to visit first a Handicraft Store. They had beautiful jade, lapis, red coral, sky beads, weavings, prayer wheels, and lots of paintings and jewelry. I ended up buying a painting, on a Buddha leaf from the Buddha tree, of the Potola Palace and the man who founded Buddhism (should know his name but between the high altitude and going on two weeks of travel my brain is not fully functional). I will ...

Prayer Flags...

... cheese that was sprinkled all over it to dry. It was quite an experience. It's pretty funky when you see motorcycles, solar panels and cell phones, though. We finally made it to the Namesto Holy Lake House! What a trip! Along the lake front are little make shift shops and tents selling all sorts of trinkets and the mountain tops were covered with prayer flags. Depending what you wanted to spend, you could get a pic with a yak, ride a yak or ride a yak into the lake...I ...

... us….no pictures of police or army….wouldn’t want the rest of the world to see this atrocity!

As we sat in one of the most popular local restaurants, two soldiers on the roof top watched our every move through the lens of a camera. I felt like giving them the royal bird but thought the better of it. We had already been told that any political actions or disrespect to the Chinese authorities in this part of the world would result in ...

... guesthouse but seem to have been upgraded to a hotel – no complaints from me!! Quite a pleasant 3 star hotel, very conveniently located to the old section of Lhasa close to all the markets. Not sure how many in our group yet – think between 8-12 – met another 2 ladies and we have hit it off well. Sharing a room with another Aussie who has had a few days here already to get her bearings and time permitting she is going to show ...
