Small budget hotel with big bathroom

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 24, 2006

This 3 star business hotel is recommended for your last night in Lhasa, or a brief 2 night stay. The hotel is located west of The Former Holiday Inn (Lhasa Hotel) in western Lhasa. It's a relatively quiet location, but you can easily find small groceries and a cheap service laundry across the street.
The front desk staff is learning English, and they might refer to their notes at registration. The hotel also claims to have a travel desk but the contracted agent was never there during my 2 day stay.
The free breakfast is adequate and featured fried rice and strawberry juice as well as fresh fruit. It officially starts at 07:30 but I saw groups eating there an hour earlier on the morning of my departure.
The standard room design is a little awkward as they have the television too close to one of the twin beds. The hotel boasts the biggest bathroom among Lhasa hotels and indeed it was larger than the one I had at The Former Holiday Inn. Plus there were some special amenities inside that I had not expected, but they are not free. (See additional photo)
I should warn you about the shower though. They have a fancy shower that can squirt you from the side as well as from above your head, but though the door appeared to shut tight I still discovered a flood on the bathroom floor after I was finished. You might want to use the rest of the bathroom first and then take a shower last before going to bed. I still had to have a maid come and dry the floor the next morning as it was still flooded from the previous night.

Unique Quality: The hotel has a morning shuttle to the train station and airport for 20 yuan, departing at 07:00. You will be provided with bread and fresh fruit to take with you in place of the free breakfast.
You can catch the city bus to Lhasa's attractions down the street to the east, or simply take a taxi of course.
The parking lot in front of the hotel is free for guests with their own vehicles.

There is a place of interest across the street and to the left of the hotel; a Tibetan opera troupe that you can visit during your stay. (Xizang Zang Ju Tuan) I dropped by just to watch them practice one night and they don't mind foreign visitors.
