Renovated in 1999 and internationally recognized as one of the few 4-star hotels in Lhasa, the Lhasa Hotel offers some of the most comfortable accommodations in the Tibetan capital. The hotel's traditional Tibetan décor immediately immerses guests in Tibet's fascinating culture. Located in the center of Lhasa at 3600m above sea level, the hotel sits next door to the Dalai Lama's Summer Palace and is only a 10-minute drive from the magnificent Potala Palace. The hour drive from the airport to the hotel offers a spectacular drive across breathtaking scenery.
The Lhasa Hotel houses 468 modest and comfortable guestrooms. Providing clean and restful accommodations, all guestrooms feature color TV, in-house movies, and private bathrooms with hot water available 24 hours. Designed with the international visitor in mind, select guestrooms pipe oxygen into the rooms to aid acclimation to the altitude.
Guests can sample some of the finest food in Tibet without even leaving the hotel. The Lhasa's restaurants offer a wide range of international cuisine. For a taste of Tibetan specialties, the Gya Sey Kang takes guests on a culinary journey through the Himalayan region. The King's Dim Sum features small, mouth-watering dishes and pastries known as dim sum. For a taste of home, The Hard Yak Café serves Western cuisine. The Everest Deluxe offers an international buffet.
The Lhasa Hotel also offers several options for recreation, including a swimming pool and beauty salon. Chang's bar is an elegant cocktail venue, while the karaoke bar is sure to provide memorable entertainment. A business center, serving all basic communication needs, is also available.
*Please note that Tibet is still developing its tourism infrastructure. While hotel options are somewhat limited, we have taken special care to select hotels that offer some of the finest accommodations and friendliest service in Tibet. It is important for visitors to Tibet to remember that in general, Western standards are not the norm. However, the opportunity to visit this remote and exotic land and enjoy its impressive culture, friendly people and ancient religion is certainly worth some minor compromises along the way.
