This is a bare minimum hotel. There are not many options in town. The security for the room is a tiny padlock on the outside and a thin dead bolt latch when you are in. There is not heat in the room but plenty of blankets. The biggest problem I had was that when you turn the water on it smells. I'm not sure of the cause but I did not shower here. Which sucked because I knew there was no shower facility at Everest tent city. The building at some point must have been open with access to the rooms direction.y from the parking area. They added and awning and own completely inclosed.
It had western plumbing!
We stayed overnight at the Tingri Guesthouse which is located right on the main road in the town. The facilities are extremely basic with two beds to a room, electricity goes on between 8 - 11pm, and the toilets are of course the fabulous squats that we've all come to know and love (although they were clean and didn't smell bad. Yay!!).
There was an opportunity to have a shower but you had to pay Y10 for the privilege and it was just a trickle and very dark so you had to leave the door open for all the local Tibetans to have a good old laugh!
Attached to the accomodation is a restaurant which is warm with the stoves and serves basic food and drinks.
All in all it is a comfortable stay but not one to dwell in for long.
