Hotels in Tibet: Since 2006, the Tibetan tourism industry has been growing fast, and the majority of the country’s rural districts have had all of their highways constructed. The local hotels and guest houses in Tibet began to modernize their infrastructure. However, because of Tibet’s environment, the local hotels and guest houses in the outlying districts still have extremely limited amenities, though most of them are working to improve.
The water at guesthouses and hotels with higher elevations, such as Shegar, Darchen, or the Mt. Everest Base Camp, may often freeze in the winter and prevent you from taking a hot shower. However, we make every effort to provide the nicest, cleanest lodging in the town.

Hotels in Shigatse, Tibet
- Gesar Hotel ( 4 Star Hotel rated)
On Longjiang Road is where you’ll find the Shigatse Gesar Hotel. The largest Gelugpa monastery, Tashilhunpo Monastery, is accessible by a 1,200-meter walk to the west. The foyer features beautiful handcrafted artwork and colorful décor. There are several various types of accommodations, including 2 four-person rooms, 2 five-person rooms, 8 luxury twin-bed rooms, 72 ordinary twin-bed rooms, 5 deluxe suites, and 9 normal suites. The rooms offer a digital TV, an automated fire alarm system, constant hot water, free 30M internet, a local and long-distance telephone, and air conditioning. The hotel offers Western, Tibetan, and Han cuisine in its café, banquet space, and several rooms.
This hotel is bit different from every hotel, as there are two buildings, the front building is the old hotel and the back side is the new building of the hotel. There is a price difference between the old and new building. Overnight at the old building of the same hotel is much cheaper as compared to the new building, which is located at the backside. So, do not confuse. If you paid for the new building, then you will stay in the new building. Your breakfast will be served on the new building’s first floor (ground floor) in your left-hand side dining room.
- Tashi Choeten Hotel ( 4 star Hotel)
This hotel, located in Shigatse, Tibet, opened its doors in 2011. It is four stars and decorated in a fairly conventional Tibetan style. The one thing I don’t like about the hotel is the hot water shower, which is essentially unadjustable. It’s a simple hotel and clean by Tibet standards. In contrast to many Chinese hotels, I could not detect any cigarette smoke.
- Hilton Hotel (5-Star Hotel)
The hotel lies in the heart of Shigatse, surrounded by mountains. Five minutes away lies the well-known Tashilhunpo Monastery, and neighboring pedestrian lanes are home to regional markets, eateries, and stores. Our 12,000 square feet of event space, which includes a pillarless ballroom for sophisticated gatherings of all kinds, is just 50 minutes from the airport.
