There are really only a couple of choices for a "4-star" hotel in Shigatse, Tibet. Tashi Choten Hotel is a sensible choice which meets all the standards and exceeded our expectations. Their guest room is reasonably big with clean and perfectly pressed linen, nice shower, and comfy bed. Dinner at the hotel's restaurant was excellent, really good value for money.
Tashi Choten Hotel is a morden hotel of decorated as the style of ancient Tibetan architecture.This is a relatively new hotel (2011) in Shigatse city, Tibet. It is rated as four stars and has a very traditional Tibetian decor. It is a basic hotel and clean in Tibet standard, the only complain I have is the hot water shower which is almost unadjustable. I did not smell any cigarette smokes which is common in a lot of hotels in China.
