Jian Zang Hotel: best inexpensive hotel in Gyantse

This hotel was clean and inexpensive. Very unique and traditional architecture. Breakfast was included in the cost of the room.

Private compound makes it very safe. Fairly close to the center of town.

Jian Zang Hotel: Great budget accomodation

We stayed at Jian Zang hotel which is on the main street in Gyantse. There are two standards of accomodation and we were lucky to have the street facing rooms of a slightly higher quality (although all rooms are considered 2 star). The rooms are clean and the beds actually comfortable (a rarity). The bathrooms have a shower over the bath and although it's a little cramped, it serves its purpose and the hot water actually runs fairly quickly (another surprise!!)

The hotel has a restaurant upstairs which serves Ok meals but I'd advise to have a look around town for better and cheap alternatives.

Wu Tse Hotel: Avoid the Wu Tse Hotel in Gyangze

I did not stay at this hotel because it flunked the flush test. If the toilet doesn't flush, the hotel probably has other problems. I let the front desk staff show me about a dozen rooms, but none had a toilet that flushed properly.

I would only recommend this cheap hotel to somebody who doesn't flush the toilet.

This hotel also has a restaurant, and I ate lunch here even though I stayed at another hotel down the street (Jian Zang). The restaurant was empty except for me and one small Japanese tour group, but the service was inexcusably slow. I don't mind waiting a long time for dinner but a delayed lunch infringes on my daylight touring time, so I'm not patient with slow service at noon.

The only nice thing I have to say about the restaurant is that they make good parathas, a kind of bread common in India's cuisine.

You can stay here if you don't need a flush toilet

Jian Zang Hotel: The best budget hotel in Gyangze: Jian Zang Hotel

The Jian Zang is the best budget hotel in Gyangtse. This 2 star hotel has clean and comfortable rooms in a courtyard style building.
Don't be put off by the flies buzzing around inside the lobby. I inspected my 200 yuan standard room and did not see any insects. The shower does not have a curtain, but since I only stayed here one night that wasn't a major shortcoming.
Tibetan suites are available upon request.
The hotel has free parking for guests with their own vehicles.

The television does not have CNN or BBC, but CCTV 9 can provide adequate English language news.
Bicycles are available for a flat rental rate of 20 yuan per day.
The highlight of a stay at this hotel is meeting the general manager, Dr. Gyantsen. He named the hotel after himself, which is funny because the Chinese characters for his name (Jian Zang) translate as "Developing Tibet"
Dr. Gyantsen likes to hang out in the lobby and practice his English by greeting foreign guests.
His hotel's small brochure contains a blurb from Lonely Planet's Tibet guide book and he is eager to lure travellers away from the Gyangtse Hotel, which he views as his main competitor.
The brochure mentions hotel services such as "doctor on call" as well as "travel information desk"; Dr. Gyangtsen serves as both. (See additional photos)
Dr. Gyangtsen is very friendly and was glad to assist me in finding cheap alternative transportation to my next destination (Kangma).

Jian Zang hotel: good and clean rooms

The Jian Zang hotel has some very nice relative new rooms. They are clean and spacious. A thermos with hot water to make tea is provided, and if you empty it you can ask for a new one downstairs. The man attending our room came with a new thermos just as we were to ask him.......

The hotel also has a restaurant where you can have breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Tibetan Hotel: Gyantse, hotelroom

In Gyantse in the Tibetan Hotel I had the most colourfull room ever.
Everything was decorated, the table, the bench, the bed. Only the carpet was just green.
Most Tibetan houses are furnished in the same way with a table, bench and cupboard, all colourfully decorated.

Tibetan Hotel: Gyantse, colourfully furnished hotelroom

All the furniture in the hotelroom was colourfully decorated. I mentioned allready the bed, bench and table, but there was also a very colourful cupboard. Every door and drawer had a different illustration.

I was happy to have a room at the first floor, because I had problems to climb the stairs because of the height.

The dinner in the hotel was great with the food served at a turning plateau on the table.
