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!

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 ...

Since our last update, we've travelled a further 1,140 kms to reach Lhasa. Our entry into Tibet was quite a process and shall be the subject of a future blog (once we've left the PRC).

Most of our journey has been along the Qinghai-Tibet highway, a highway that runs across ...

... the chinese one now resides in the Nepelese temple.

Another interesting point was the origins of the tibetians walking around the temple clockwise. Seems that the native tibetian religion Bon has people walking around a holy place anti-clockwise. The buddhists decided to keep the tradition but change the direction. Always interesting to see how a new religion takes the traditions of a preexisting one and makes it its own in order to make it easier to convert people.
