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!

... with tourists visiting Tibet with the exception of the city of Lhasa, where tourists can explore on their own. Due to a construction issue, we had to take a roundabout way into Lhasa from the airport. I'm amazed by how dry and brown the terrain here is. It sort of reminds me of parts of Nevada.  After some minor issues with the reservation, we were able to check into our rooms at the Shangri La. It was opened this past spring and it is ...

... the huge one inside whilst saying a prayer.

After a good flow around Barkhor and some time in the museum, I ended up in a huge three storey indoor market which had everything from cheese to the watch I bought.

Later on in the afternoon, I went round the corner to the street food place and got a couple of spring rolls and some more chips. The market there was a very different place to the boutiques just around the ...

... 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 ...

... by a large number of police sitting under large umbrellas along various street curbs.

Once I got closer to the temple I saw lots of Tibetians from all over tibet walking in a clockwise direction around the temple following what was known as the Bahkor circuit. Once again also saw people prostrating themselves in front of the temple or making there way around it by prostrating, taking a couple of steps then prostrating again. Interesting how most of these people had pads on ...
