“Ok, but only because there weren't any options in Shigatse.”
Reviewed 11 May 2012

We stayed at this hotel two nights on our tour from Lhasa to EBC (once going there and once on the way back). The room wasn't cleaned properly (garbage left on the floor etc.) and the floors were so dirty & gross that we didn't take our shoes off while we were there (both times.)

Our room was ok otherwise. Beds were rock hard - china style - so we found extra duvets and put them down as the base and slept on top of them.

The other downside - our toilet would not flush (slightly gross when you are sharing). But it did 'trickle' very loudly all night long. Imagine some dripping tap right next to your pillow. We both got about 2 hours sleep because of the frustration and noise.

The room on our second stay was better, but nothing spectacular.

Stay here only if you have to.

With an inner courtyard parking area, this hotel caters to larger bussed in tour groups. It was a cold morning walk outside to the crowded breakfast room the next morning. With so many people at the buffet, you had to be quick to get what you wanted. What we had was good.

Check in was smooth, thanks to our guide. We requested ground level because there was no elevator, and we were ushered down a dark corridor off the lobby to our room. It was surprisingly nice and exceeded the expectations I had from researching.

The hotel location is not near the Tashilunpo Monastery and surrounding restaurants, so we ate dinner before heading for the hotel. A couple in the restaurant told us they paid for a room at the Manasarovar, but their reservation was not honored. They used an agency that didn't follow through, so they had to find another place to stay. We've used the same agency since 2004 and always get what we pay for.

We stayed one night.

Very disappointing! It was an awful stay. When we arrived, the receptionist's attitude was more than unwelcoming, the room was okay for one night, but the bathroom was so filthy and smelly, we could not use it, felt so sick!!! The toilet was just brown...

Stayed here for one night because our initial hotel (the Shigatse Hotel) was full and did not have an extra bed. The hotel was nicely set in an enclosed area, which is nice. We got a room on the ground floor facing the car park and very near the ground floor toilets. The heater was warm but our room was filled with cigarrette smoke the entire night. We tried to find the cause of it and the staff came in but it was all futile. No help in relocating us either.

We thought it was from the car park area as there were many pepole there having a smoke but the problem subsisted for the entire night. We are usually quite immune to cigarette smoke although we do not smoke but this was something else - a very dry smoke filled room, which meant that we woke up with a stuffed nose, eye irritation and a sore throat.

The restaurant (apposite the front porch within the enclosed hotel compound) was however quite good and had a nice atmosphere but cold. In fact, the hotel lobby was also cold as with all the hotels in Tibet as there was no heating.

Room Tip: Don't take the ground floor rooms on the left

The room we stayed in was very attractive, with a stenciled border and a hand-painted medallion on the ceiling. Once we got the heater working, it was fairly comfortable. The halls and lobby were very cold and the lights were usually off in the hall, so a flashlight is helpful. The shower curtain was moldy and too short, so we had water spilling out onto the floor. The attached hotel restaurant was hit or miss. One night, we had delicious chicken and crispy french fries. The next morning, breakfast was not very good (watery porridge, cold toast, no eggs).
