Facility and Services of Hotels in Tibet

As a newly developing tourism region, the facilities, conditions and services of hotels in Lhasa and other places in Tibet may not be as good as you could expect from a hotel with this rating in other cities of China, especially in some remote places of Tibet. However, hotels and accommodations in Tibet have been greatly improved due to rapidly developing tourism in Tibet.

In most cities and counties in Tibet, there are hotels and guest houses for lodging, but the equipment and service may be inferior to those of the other places of China. Even some famous international chain hotels in Lhasa, like Sheraton and St. Regis, the service standard and facilities of most 3, 4 even 5 star hotels are not what you would expect from the same rating hotels in Beijing or Shanghai.

About Rat Issue: In Tibet, rats living in the urban and remote areas have few natural predators. Besides, Tibetans are believers of Tibetan Buddhism. They tend to see every living creature as equal as human beings, including rats. In some hotels or guesthouses, you are very likely to see and hear little creatures in your room. Don’t panic and they are harmless. Do ask staff of the hotel to change your room. Most importantly, never leave snacks and fruits unattended on the table of your room. Please forgive this inconvenient truth of Tibet tour. Hotels in Lhasa Tibet
