After travelling by train from Shanghai to Lhasa, we were staying in Yabshi Phunkhang Heritage Hotel which is the family home of the 11th Dalai Lama's family. During the first night we were put into 2 rooms on the groundfloor in the back yard. The rooms were not too clean, rather small (12 sqm) and loud, due to adjacent neighbours outside of the hotel playing card games until the wee morning hours. The next day, we were shifted into the 1st floor (Chinese 2nd floor) and got large and clean rooms of 20+ sqm. The hotel is perfectly located to venture into old Lhasa by foot (3 min to Barkhor and Jokhang Temple). People are friendly and trying to accomodate your wishes. During our stay the Hotel was partly booked7occupied by a Chinese filmcrew shooting a historic drama with the backset of the Hotel. In all a fantastic stay. Maybe just one remark, the breakfast could have a wider choice and a bit higher quality.
We recently stayed at this heritage hotel for 4 nights. The location of the hotel is fantastic, footsteps away from Barkhor market and the dining and shopping that can be found there. It really is the best area of Lhasa to stay in. As you would probably already know, the hotel itself was built for the 11th Dalai Lama's family. The rooms are decorated in traditional Tibetan design and have lots of character. However, I found that this is where the hotel's finer points end. The hotel staff whilst always friendly are generally rather inefficient. The same breakfast provided everyday (a fried egg, some potato and 2 pieces of toast) - it would have been nice to have had some variety. In their advertisements the hotel does heavily promote that it provides Illy coffee. Note that the Illy coffee is not inclusive in the breakfast and I cannot speak too highly of its quality (it is ok but nothing worth shouting about). Overall, I would recommend the hotel based on its location and traditional appearance. However any background and history of the residence itself is not communicated in the experience. As a result, it feels very much like a hotel business that has moved into a heritage residence as opposed to an all round Tibetan cultural experience.
