Lhasa Accommodation

Known as the “Sunlight City”, Lhasa is the capital of the Tibet Autonomous Region and a political, economic, cultural and religious center. For a long time, Lhasa has been honored as holy places in their hearts of the devout Tibetan Buddhists. As a famous historical and cultural city in China, Lhasa is one of the most popular tourist cities for travelers from all over the world.

Accommodation in Lhasa is the best in Tibet. From 5-star hotels to guesthouses, visitors can choose to their needs accordingly. The 5-star hotels currently have: The St. Regis Lhasa Resort, Shangri-La Hotel, Lhasa, and Inter Continental Lhasa Paradiese. From the geographical point of view, the first two have more advantages. However, these three are very high-end, luxurious and globally renowned hotels. The peak season price starts at around RMB 1,200 /night, and in the low season, it costs about RMB 800-900 /night.

There are more choices for 4-star hotels, such as Four Points by Sheraton Lhasa, Thangka Hotel, Lhasa Manasarovar Hotel, Lhasa Yaluzangbu Hotel and many more.

The 3-star hotel is about the same price as some Tibetan high-end inns, but some Tibetan inns are very special (such as House of Shambhala Inn). It is especially popular, even more than the demands of a 5-star hotel, thus the price is even the same or higher than a 4-star hotel. In addition, there are many youth hostels and guest houses in Lhasa. The price during the peak season is around RMB 200-300 /night, and in the low season, it will down to RMB 150-250 /night. Lhasa’s accommodation, usually available for breakfast, 24-hour hot water supply, free WIFI, etc., and basic facilities are readily available.

Most Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is a single room supplement?
    Our quotations are based on the standard room, twin room, which is equivalent to the price of only one bed. But when we calculate the tour fee, we actually calculate it according to the price of one person. For example, two people share a room, which is the price of the room divided by two. In Tibet, the standard room with two beds and the double bedroom are the same price. When you live in one room, you need to pay the cost of another bed. And usually we call it as Single Supplement.
  • Can three people share one room?
    So, if you happen to be 3 people and want to live in the same room, be sure to check with the travel agent or hotel in advance if they can arrange it. In addition, the hotel's Twin Bed Room is usually 1.2 meters wide, even if 3 people are a family of 3 (parents + children), have to consider the issue of comfort.
  • Does the accommodation provide a separate toilet during the trip to Tibet?
    Tibet has a vast territory, depending on where are you travel! The hotels in large and medium-sized cities are equipped with separate toilets and provide 24-hour hot water, such as Lhasa, Shannan, Nyingchi and Shigatse. However, if you go to Namtso, Everest or even to the Ali era, due to local restrictions, many accommodations does not have separate toilets or even hot water is available for a limited time. Of course, star hotels or better hotels and even some guesthouses in the Ali area also have separate toilets and hot water, but the price will be more expensive.
  • Is there air conditioning and heating in the hotel room?
    Hotels in large and medium-sized cities in Tibet will be equipped with air conditioning or heating, but not supplied every day; especially heating; due to the climate in Tibet, many air conditioners only has heating functions. In remote areas, electric blankets are generally available for heating. Some hotels offer oxygen for free, but many require extra fee or no such service.
  • Do I have to bring a sleeping bag when I travel to Tibet?
    This is still relating to where to travel in Tibet. If it is a large and medium-sized city in Tibet, the health services in the hotel are all in place, and there is no need to bring sleeping bags. However, if you plan to go to a remote place, it is recommended to bring your own light, warm sleeping bag will be better, and feel more sanitary and comfortable. Because of the remote areas, the bedding products will not be cleaned and aired frequently, and there is probably no hot water bath. Visitors are running outside for a day, and some of them may return to their accommodations and go straight to sleep. The cleanness of the sheets and quilts is conceivable. At the same time, it should be noticed that although Everest and Namtso are the must-see attractions in Tibet travel, due to various conditions, there are also the same situations as in remote areas. Of course, usually only one night at Everest and Namtso, this is actually tolerable. However, if you really cannot bear with the condition, you can bring along a sleeping bag.
  • Can a foreign tourist live in the local Tibetans' homes?
    This is not allowed, and foreign tourists must live in a qualified hotel.
  • How is the accommodation near Namtso?
    Compared to the Everest, Namtso’s accommodation is better. The Tashi Peninsula is a concentrated place for accommodation. It is kind of like a guest house. There is no separate bathroom and it cannot be washed indoors. Drinking hot water can be provided, but not enough for taking a bath. Since the heavy snowfall of the National Day in 2018, Namtso is still closed, and it is said that tourists are not allowed to stay in Namtso in the future.
  • Is the hotel in Tibet open all year round?
    No, some hotels will go out of business during the off-season and reopen in the next March or April. Especially in the Ali area, many hotels and guesthouses are not open during the off-season.
