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.
