Category: first class

Covering an area of 73,513 square meters, this was the best hotel in Lhasa when it opened in 1985 and remained so for many years under the management of Holiday Inn International, now part of the Intercontinental Hotels Group. Due to immense pressure from Tibetans in exile and their supporters, Holiday Inn bowed out in 1997 when its contract expired. The hotel went through some renovations since then and in 2010, the local government decided to invest 330 million Yuan ($52 million) to expand the hotel in addition to refurnishing the existing wings. The project was completed in 2011.

The hotel is well located with Norbulingka, the Dalai Lama’s Summer Palace, just down the road. The landmark Potala Palace is only 10 minutes away by car.
