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.

Stayed for 2 nights at a room overlooking the greens and the rear side of Songzanlin Lamasery. The view was stunning and perfect for the retreat of the mind. The room was cozy, clean, and nicely decorated and I absolutely loved the old-fashioned fireplace! The mattress might be a little soft for some but it might be a pleasant thing...
