Beautiful hotel next to the monastery... nice decor.... it’s restaurant served us great vegetarian food... staff is pleasant and well meaning.... rooms are very dark and depressing probably because they are built for severe winters..

Top Class Service
Reviewed 9 months ago

Highly recommended! Upon arrival, you can feel the friendliness from the staff. They make you feel welcomed. Other than their service, love their selfmade Linka cookies & ginger tea, complimentary Songtsam Monastery entrance tickets, Tibetan dining, free drop off service to Deqin airport. The only downside is the wifi is a bit weak in our room. They also have Tibetan performance delivered by their staff every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

A Wonderful Experience

We highly recommend this hotel. We were warned that when staying at a hotels
in Shangri-La, one should lower their expectations. Not here.
We were warmly welcomed at the door, we sat on the couch in the lobby and were served ginger tea from kettles kept warm on a wood burning stove. The staff was excited and eager to meet us. Then we were given slippers and were shown to our room.
It was spacious, clean, comfortable, beautiful, it seemed traditional yet the amenities were modern. The robes were to die for!
The food was local, well prepared and delicious. The hotel has a library we recommend you visit.
Our favorite part of the hotel was the staff. They were so friendly and their hospitality unmatched. Many can communicate in simple English. But they use a good translator ap on their phones when they need to.
Thanks to everyone at the hotel. A great stay!

The rooms are very spacious and the views are incredible. The management staff are excellent, the young ones needs more training and support. Lunch hours should be extended and a wider F&B offerings would be appreciated.

Nice escape in the country side

The hotel is not an Accor member anymore but for the time being they maintain good standards.
The rooms are huge and pleasant with a balcony overlooking the temple.
We tried both the Tibetan and western restaurants and they offer an excellent selection of dishes. The Tibetan specialties are delicious. The breakfast is also very good.
A special thank you to Dolma the assistant GM who was so friendly and professional.
