Tibet Hotels-where to stay in Tibet

What's the condition of accommodations in Tibet?

One thing you should bear in mind is that hotel facilities and service in Tibet, may not be on par with hotels with this rating in other parts of China or the world.

Accommodation conditions in Tibet have been greatly improved due to rapidly developing tourism in Tibet. However, the overall level of accommodations in Tibet is lower than that in other parts of China.

You can find star-rated hotels in big cities of Tibet such as Lhasa, Shigatse, Tsedang, and Lyingchi, but hotels in small cities and remote areas are very basic, usually having a public bathroom with squat toilet.

Budget guesthouse has a few kinds. One is the twin room with or without the bathroom in it. The other is triple, four-bed rooms, and more beds rooms named dormitory which all have no private bathroom in them. Former one can be easily found in Lhasa and Shigatse, while later one is often the choice in remote area in Tibet.
