Sakya Lhundup Hotel
Shigatse | Standard
With a convenient location in central Shigatse, close to the Summer Palace, Tashi Lhunpo monastery and a vibrant food market, Sakya Lhundup is a simple, traditional hotel with international style facilities. Whether as a stop on the road to Mt Everest, for visiting the once-powerful Sakya Monastery, or a base for exploring Shigatse itself, this hotel offers familiarity and basic comfort, if perhaps a little light on character.
A traditional, intricately carved façade in multiple, sun-faded colours, gives way to a cool, calm interior. Bright wall hangings and Buddhas adorn the spacious reception area, where staff in traditional dress greet you. The guest rooms are pleasantly decorated in muted tones against white walls which create brightness and open up the space. Padded monochrome beds compliment geometrically patterned screens and organic motifs in the carpets and soft furnishings for a surprisingly modern effect. Low lighting provides a restful atmosphere and each room has a basic, Western-style en-suites. Choose from rooms overlooking the bustling street, or quieter suites with a view of the hotel’s central courtyard.
The calm courtyard houses the hotel restaurant, a spacious room with buffet style dining serving a selection of local and international dishes, and the hotel bar (when open!) offers somewhere serene to mull over the day.
We SayA pleasant hotel in colourful Tibetan décor, ideally located for seeing the best of Shigatse.
