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!

... Square. Chinese soldiers guard both places. Disconcerting to me was the big Chinese flag, flying at the very top of this incredible Tibetan Holy place . . . .

We entered through the gates and waited for our start time - and then headed up the ramp/stairs. These are made of stone and very uneven. Our dear, elderly Japanese couple planned to attempt this visit . . Yikes! 500 steps is a lot for even the ...

We set off early 8am to first go to the Fort but decided we probably wouldn't get such nice photos through the haze, so now we're on the road back to Lhasa. With a bit of luck we'll be there by mid-afternoon to enjoy our last hours in the wonderfull Lhasa! As we didn't have breakfast in the hotel we stopped in a small town to have a Tibetan breakfast of noodles and yak meat and momos (yak ...

For some reason, high altitude has resulted in some rather odd dreams and I spent a restless night because of them, but eventually it was time to get up, shower, dress, pack and then repack when various overlooked items, such as a shirt I washed the previous evening hanging in the bathroom, were discovered. We went down to breakfast, couldn't find any spoons, refused the cold fried eggs thrust at us and then managed to get what we needed ...

... br> As it is all over the area, we went through security screening twice, had to show ticket three times, and even our passport! There were police and guards everywhere. You can take pictures outside, but none inside the museum nor the inside of the palace,not even from the upper roof (may show police/troops). They do not have post cards that show the inside. It is considered very sacred. I learned that when a Dali Lama dies, his living quarters are not used ...

... out to Norbulingka monastery Monastery. Potala Palace is a monastery really but monastery this place had more of a village feel to it and again was an impressive complex; even if it was a bit deja vu. The problem for most of us is the lack of a spiritual connection with the monasteries and their many treasures. At least I can sort of comprehend the sense of peace some people get but even walking round 'Om'ing to himself did little to entertain Murray...although it did make me ...
