We really enjoyed staying in this Tibetan run hotel. In some ways it reminded us of backpacking days with its quirky furnishings and even quirkier plumbing. It has loads of character with every room different and furnished in an eclectic manner using local materials. The room we stayed in was of a good size. The bathroom was adequate if a little cave-like, and the beds on the hard side. If you like standard en- suite accommodation with gleaming white tiled bathroom, then this place is not for you. But if you do stay here are many delights.
The location in the old town , a short walk ( once you work out the maze of alleys) to Bakhor Square and the Jokhang Temple is unbeatable. There are also a number of restaurants in the area. The roof terrace is a fantastic space with cushions and low tables and a wonderful view across the town to the surrounding mountains and the Portala Palace. A great place for a beer (which is cheap) after a hard days walking. There is also a lovely atmosphere in the main bar/ restaurant on the ground floor. Again a quirky design, with some excellent tasty Tibetan/ Nepalese/Indian/ Chinese food.
Best of all were the warm and friendly staff. While the English of some was not good, they were always willing to sort things out.
A very enjoyable stay which we will remember fondly.More
