We stayed at this hotel for couple of days. The place very very close to the Labrang monastery. There are local Tibetan and Chinese restaurants nearby. The staffs are very helpful and the receptionist can speak english. She helped us in many ways. She helped us in arranging trip to the Gannan grasslands. The rooms are okayish for the price you pay. Some part could have been improved, like in one of our room we had issue with hot water in bathroom. It was summer time, so we managed it.

I stayed here for a couple of nights when visiting Xiahe and the Labrang monastery. The location is perfect and the owners are really helpful in giving advice. My room could do with a bit of a refurbishment and the bathroom could’ve been cleaner. But I’m a small Chinese town like this, it’s as good as it gets !

I stayed for eight days at the Overseas Tibetan Hotel during July 2020, a month that will go down in infamy as a difficult time to travel. However, when I initially emailed Losang, the owner of Overseas Tibetan Hotel, and mentioned my interest in travelling to Gansu, he was immediate and thorough in his response back. In fact, he set up my entire itinerary, including arranging a driver to take me from Lanzhou to Xiahe, then onto to Langmusi, then back to Lanzhou. He also booked rooms for me in hotels outside of Xiahe, and made certain these bookings would be honored before I arrived (with Covid this has unfortunately been an issue for some hotels when foreigners try to book.) He truly took care of every detail in my panning, and made no complaints when, upon arrival to Xiahe, suddenly changed them (I liked Xiahe too much to leave, so he cancelled my booking in Langmusi without causing penalty.) During my time in Xiahe, the fabulous Lily who works at the hotel was my personal guide through the surrounding grasslands and town, giving me an excellent and fascinating introduction to Tibetan culture. Honestly, I can not say enough wonderful things about Lily! As mentioned in the previous reviews, Xiahe is a beautiful town and a refreshing change from the sweltering humidity of Shanghai. The scenery is stunning and you can go off wondering and hiking the hills in almost any direction, or you can simply wander through the neighborhoods of Xiahe, which are fascinating in themselves. But whatever you do, be sure to bring sun block and chapstick, because you're going to need it!

This was an outstanding escape to the mountains and away from the crowds of Shanghai and Suzhou. We planed to stay for a few days and ended up staying for more than two weeks. Since we couldn’t leave China to return to Europe we had to find somewhere to relax. It was the perfect place to be and Losang, who is the owner / manager of the Overseas Tibetan Hotel and his team made sure we found the people and places we wanted to see. The hotel is 100 from the corner of the Labrang Monastery from where you can walk the perimeter of the monastery, a 3km / 40 min walk or you can venture into the interior of the monastery and visit the various schools. We were able to get unique insights into the life of the monks, to walk into the grasslands climbing up to 3900m without seeing anyone. The town is 2850m and the air is good but feels a but thin when climbing. You might feel a bit uncomfortable for the first day. Bike hire, horse back riding, temple visits,shopping, and helpful advice about where to eat, even for vegetarians. July has grasslands full of flowers, Edelweiss! The rooms are clean and comfortable, we think all with twin or triple beds and some family rooms. The staff are all courteous and go out of their way to help. Evenings are quiet and the town gets busy quite early if the windows are open, we could batten down for a late start. A light European breakfast was included. Xiahe seems to be opening up for foreigners and a longer stay provides a great insight into the lives of the Tibetan community in this small town. Take your own coffee if you are a coffee lover!
