As you know, the facilities and service levels of hotels in Tibet are lower than those of other big cities in Mainland China as Tibet is a plateau area. However, due to the rapid development of tourism in Tibet in recent years, accommodation in Tibet has been greatly improved.
Accommodation in Tibet is divided into star hotels, guest houses, and tents. You can find comfortable star hotels in the big cities of Tibet such as Lhasa, Shigatse, Nyingchi, etc. If you plan to travel to remote areas, there are many simple hotels, guest houses, and a tent for your choice. For example, Lhasa accommodation ranges from the cheap hotel to the luxury five-star hotel; in Tsedang and other places, the highest standard is 4-star; in Tingri, Gyirong, the highest standard is 3-star; and in other small or remote areas of Ngari, EBC, the guesthouses may be your only option unless you would like to stay overnight in the tent.
If you need a more comfortable room that can provide the 24 hours hot water for showers and WiFi, most 3-star hotels and all 4-5 star hotels in major cities of Tibet are your choices. If you only need a room with basic facilities, you can try guesthouses.
- During the peak season of Tibet travel, the prices of star-rated hotels are relatively higher.
- It's advisable to choose a hotel around Jokhang Temple, Barkhor Street or Potala Palace.
- It is recommended to bring your sleeping bag when you plan to visit remote places. Or you can rent one in Lhasa.
- It is advisable not to stay in Tibetan local houses for your safety and cultural taboos.
