"Gyantse Hotel" Gyantse Hotel Tip by Maria81
Gyantse Hotel, Gyangze: 106 reviews and 4 photos
The hotel's official rating is ***, which did mean it was pretty basic - and so it was (it would not have been given *** in Europe for that matter. Despite this, it's still the best accomodation available in Gyantse so would be the first stop for most foreign travellers (and local tourists) along the Friendship Highway.
It was interesting to note that an observation made by my 2005 edition Lonely Planet guide was still correct - the place did really have clocks showing the wrong time in all major destinations and two-weeks' old newspapers.
What we liked
- Breakfast was quite good, and included in the price
- All the basics that may not be available all over Tibet were in the room (heating, TV and hot water first of all)
- There was an adorable little kitten living in the hotel yard, providing quite a bit of entertainment
What we did not like
- Rooms were in a bit of disrepair, especially the bathrooms (although all main appliances were working)
- No Internet
