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!

... the people, quite often all three combined. Scenery-wise the big daddy is obviously Everest (Mt.Chomolungma locally), which simply takes your breath away, but the whole country is one big picture book with snow-capped peaks, enormous glaciated valleys, major rivers and high altitude plains. Woolly yaks appear in just about every scene as do the colourful Tibetan prayer flags flapping from every conceivable object, even electricity pylons! At this time of year it is harvest time ...

... that they were beautiful. It does not matter if she understood. They were a gift to me. There we sat, two very different cultures half a world away from each other, sharing a stone bench on a lovely summer day. They were dressed in traditional black skirts and vests with brocade shirts and the elder one had the funkiest hat. They wore beautiful turquoise earrings and striped aprons. The women just offered me a treat of dried fruit...even though my body was off, there was no way I was going to ...

... Oh noooooo!
So we knocked on the door: nothing.
We knocked stronger: nothing again.
We tried to look inside, but everything was shut off.
In that moment, a young couple passed by us and stopped to help us. They where really nice because they tried to find a solution with us, knocking too, helping us to call the hotel with the phone and, at the end, suggesting us a place where to stay for the night, all of these without speaking the ...

... for Tibetan Pilgrims.

To see the whole complex in a single view, which is amazing, you climb on to the square of the Jokhang temple, from where you get the most amazing scenes of the temple. There are two big steles, both inscribed. One stands as testimony to the alliance between kings of Tibet and Tang, and the other is a walled enclosure in front of the temple which contains some willows called the Jowo Utra ('Hair of the Jowo') and an ...

Lhasa or Bust

... and grimier each car became, which began to worry me until I actually arrived at the dining car.

This car was the cleanest and most spacious of all the cars, and had clean tables and large windows through which to view the beautiful scenery. I took a seat at a table, suddenly remembering the original purpose of my quest to the dining car, which was to find an outlet plug. Just as luck would have it, there was an outlet plug under the table behind the one I was sitting ...
