We stayed in the hotel for a week and felt really welcome and looked after. The hotel has new owners and they just finished the renovations to the property. The rooms were beautifully decorated and so big. There were heaters in each room and the restaurant was nice and cosy. The dinning room even has floor heating! The building is...

Directly booked the hotel for 4 nights, 2 weeks prior to my stay.

This was the home of the 11th Dalai Lama's parents. It is beautifully decorated in the Tabeten style. The rooms are around a courtyard and are spacious with modern baths and amenities. The rooms are not heated or cooled. We were there mid Sept. and it got cold at night so were given a large space heater and extra duvets...

The Yabshi Punkhang is beautiful and was originally built around 1838 for the family of the 11th Dalai Lama. The hotel is located in great part of town as it is right in the heart of the Tibetan Quarter. However, the rooms were way overpriced in my opinion. The standard room we had was $195 and did NOT include breakfast....

We stayed here for 3 nights while touring Tibet and all of our friends loved the place. The staff was great; the location is perfect, and our room for 3 people was huge by Chinese standards. Free wifi and a gorgeous courtyard were icing on the cake. It truly felt Tibetan.

We moved to the Kyichu Hotel down the street because the breakfast was not edible, our guide had to ask that our room be made up because it was not touched at 2:30pm, it was a dark room with a cold cement floor, and we had to notify staff in order to get hot water. It is nice to see...

This boutique hotel oozes charm and atmosphere, which, considering its heritage, is no surprise. The stairs are steep, as they are in all traditional Tibetan homes and monasteries so it is not suitable for more frail travelers or small children. The traditional architecture has been maintained but coordinated with modern bathroom features and excellent heating. It is pricey by comparison...

After travelling by train from Shanghai to Lhasa, we were staying in Yabshi Phunkhang Heritage Hotel which is the family home of the 11th Dalai Lama's family. During the first night we were put into 2 rooms on the groundfloor in the back yard. The rooms were not too clean, rather small (12 sqm) and loud, due to adjacent neighbours...

We recently stayed at this heritage hotel for 4 nights. The location of the hotel is fantastic, footsteps away from Barkhor market and the dining and shopping that can be found there. It really is the best area of Lhasa to stay in. As you would probably already know, the hotel itself was built for the 11th Dalai Lama's family....

“First floor rooms are cheaper but dont choose first floor rooms as no view and bit dark.. 2nd floor much much better.”
HIGHLAND_Tenzin, 7 May 2015 | Read review
“Lower floors are better if you don't like steep stairs. Our room overlooked the inner courtyard and was very quiet. I am not sure about the noise in rooms facing the busy street at the front.”

“ask for the rooms inside the building or for rooms at the back yard in the higher floors.”
