The lobby of this hotel has beautiful artefacts and is like a museum of showpieces. There is wifi, kettle, hair dryer and all other regular toiletaries provided. The room provides house coats and bedroom slippers too. Money exchange is possible. It is located approximately one hour from the airport. It has local bus stops just outside the hotel and travel to places like Potala palace is possible for just one yuan from this hotel.

Room Tip: Spend some time to admire the artefacts in the lobby

Hotel is interesting and different. None of the staff spoke any English but I don't consider that a problem as sign language works. The big problem is that the rooms are filthy dirty. Had a pair of socks left over from a previous guest next to the bed with a ton of dust on them so the room has not seen a vacuum cleaner in some time. Restaurant was barely adequate. Definitely not a 5 star - maybe a 3.

Room Tip: go somewhere else

This was the latter stage of my tour of China in May 2015. I had already visited Beijing and Xian.

I didnt know quite what to say when I arrived - certainly I have never stayed in a hotel that felt like a mueum/art gallery (and thats not a bad thing - it is an interesting mix!).

The hotel is a little removed from downtown old Lhasa, but no matter, Blue taxis are plentiful, and should not cost more than 20 yuan each way to city centre and back (haggle and you might get a trip for 10 yuan!)

The decor is very tibetan/nepalese. I liked it.

Bedrooms are very well appointed, not quite five star but cosy. Bathroom was the most impressive of any hotel I have stayed in' in China. Plenty of everything you would expect.

Loads of choice in the food, and plentiful.

Museum/gallery on the first floor is extraordinary. A must visit. And it is free!

I cannot forget to mention THE STAFF - They were quite literally superb. They made you feel as if they were welcoming you into own home. Such warm hospitality! And no problem to go above and beyond your request.

Perhaps it is Tibetan culture, but they really made an impression on me and the tour group I was with. Such kindness!

Lhasa is wonderful. So historic, and the Tibetan people are very spiritual - Lhasa is to Tibet what Lourdes is to France - it has hundreds of Pilgrims walking 'the way' around the monasteries in the city - Drepung, Norbulinka, Potala, Sera. Such faith.

Really is the centre of Tibetan Buddaism.

Be prepared for the thin air - Lhasa is at 11,000 ft altitude, and the air is thin. Most people should be okay, but if you have breathing difficulty I would advise you to check with your Doctor if you are fit to travel.

You walk a lot, but if you are generally fit, you will be fine. It is a once in a lifetime experience, and you will love the sense of peace and harmony that pervades the place.

A must see!

Room Tip: Ask for a double bed. They are HUGE!

The hotel is nice, but don't expect super luxury Western standards. In the end, you are in Tibet and some thinks work and some others, don't. It's just this way. The hotel has a big collection of Tibetan artifacts, so it's somehow like a museum. The shocking thing is that you can buy everything!!!!!!! if you like something that is exhibited, you can buy it as a souvenir. Rooms are comfortable, with nice beds. Quite noisy, but not because of the hotel… mainly because of our neighbors (a Chinese tour group that loved to talk to each other from room to room with their doors open…). Breakfast was fine and everything worked pretty well. A good and comfortable option in Lhasa. By the way! get ready to assault taxis to share them with locals. The hotel doesn't call taxis (it seems it's not an existing service in Lhasa) and the habitude of sharing taxis seems totally stablished, so nobody will be surprised if you jump into an occupied taxi.

The Brahmaputra is advertised as 5 star. Unfortunately, does not meet the conditions that should be a 5 star hotel. The main problems are: the staff do not know the basics of English, dirty rooms not functioning air conditioning, no fridge in the room ....
Any attempt to draw attention to these deficiencies crashing on the lack of knowledge of English.

I do not recommend - a waste of money.
