Gang Gyan Hotel

Lhasa | First Class

Centrally located within easy reach of several major sights, including the Jokhang Temple, Barkhor Street market and Ramoche Monastery, the Gang Gyan Hotel offers convenience and flexibility in the heart of Lhasa. With an uncomplicated, no-frills approach, this moderately large hotel gives you somewhere peaceful to return to after a full day exploring the city.

The bold Chinese influences in the décor are customised with a few traditional Tibetan touches such as a bright palette of reds, greens and blues, and gilded Buddhist illustrations in the shared spaces. In contrast, the guest rooms are more modern and muted. Though a little worn in places, they feel bright and contemporary. Crisp, white linens complement pale walls, enhancing the available light. Neutral tones in the carpets and furnishings are warmed by soft lamplight and lifted by hints of pastel gold. Some rooms have bijou seating areas, perfect for enjoying a morning coffee, and the neat en-suites bring in classic monochrome elements.

A selection of simple, fresh dishes are available in the buffet restaurant, an ideal spot for a hearty breakfast, and there is a coffee lounge and a hotel bar where you can grab refreshments throughout the day. The onsite altitude reaction treatment centre and on-call doctor are a reassuring addition, especially for anyone unaccustomed to Tibet’s high elevation, and the fitness and wellbeing area provides space to unwind. However, the Gang Gyan’s primary feature is its location; enjoy full views of the spectacular Potala Palace from certain rooms, and lie in bed listening to the music of morning bells and evening drums from across the city.
