Stayed there a few days for a business trip, so we received the negotiated rate which is approx USD 143 (880RMB) per night. It's rated as a 4 star hotel, but if you compare it to international standard, it's a 3 star at the best. It is clean (except for the carpet, but I don't think they have vacume cleaner in that region). The bath room is small, but not cramped & has not tub. Room has a desktop computer and an oxygen machine that can help you to deal with the high altitude illlness (but it's pay-per-use, 100RMB for approx 6 hours). Service is good, staff is obviously from the country side but very friendly. Breakfast is OK.
Best thing about this hotel is the location. It's right on the downtown market street where you can walk around for knock off merchandise & tibetan cheese. It's only 2 blocks away from the Jokhang Temple, and approx 5 blocks away from the Putala Palace.
Food in Lhasa is not so good, there are a few restaurants hidden in the ally across the street from the hotel, but those are local restaurants and staff don't know english. Food are Sichuan style, so very very very spicy.More
