This gorgeous unique hotel is completely flawless. The rooms and views are fabulous and the staff are exceptionally helpful and kind. The restaurant is amazing, with the buffet breakfast being possibly the best that we have ever had. We highly recommend the pasta and trout. This is not only a hotel; it has the best collection of Tibetan artefacts and...

We had a wonderful 6 nights in this hotel. The location is wonderful and you get a great view of the Buddhist temple on the hill opposite. We were upgraded complimentarily and had a big comfortable bedroom/sitting room and a good sized shower room/toilet. The bedroom/sitting room was spacious and warm with a balcony looking onto the main view. There...

What a beautiful hotel, it is set in the hill directly behind the monastery. We arrived late afternoon on a cold rainy day. The front desk staff was so welcoming, offering delicious homemade cookies and ginger tea. The check in process was easy and efficient. We were able to book a couple of spa appointments at that time as well....

Most hotels are similar ... after some time it is difficult to recall any details. Some hotels are specific and can be easily remembered for ever. Such as this one. Our stay was simply perfect. The design of the hotel matches the local Tibetan culture. Every detail of design and equipment of hotel rooms was well thought through. The hotel...

The romance of travel is so well captured in the Songtsam circuit. Be it the itinerary, the staff, the little details, they all add up to a truly memorable and rich experience. Despite being my second trip, I remain truly impressed with the Songtsam circuit. Now looking forward to a third.

We just loved this place. The staff, employed as a matter of policy from the local villagers, were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. Their level of English was sometimes not good, but there was always an English-speaker available to sort out any problems. We liked the ginger tea and biscuits in the afternoon, the non-alcoholic...

The three nights here were delightful. A scattering of stone buildings extends up the hill. Very comfortable accommodations included a nice looking balcony which was too chilly to use. The staff is all drawn from the local population and has been well trained. Most speak good English. The breakfast buffet had a large number of choices and included an egg...
