Breathtakingly beautiful

Service, comfort, location
Thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Well-managed hotel with superb staff who seemed comfortable conversing in English. Also very conveniently located right next to famous sightseeing spot, Songzanlin Monastery. Guests were allowed to purchase entrance tickets to the monastery at reduced rate. Range of local food and western selection was good. Also helped guests arrange tours and transport when we needed help. Overall enjoyed my stay and would go back, as well as look forward to visiting other Songstam managed hotels.

Friendly warm Tibetan staff in a cold winter

Friendly obliging staff, excellent wireless access and ambient dining room
The friendly staff helped to deliver and complete a holiday with their warmth in the cold highlands of Yunnan during winter. Throughout our stay, we had an attentive and helpful staff who met and exceeded all our needs and requests. Many thanks to the Songtsam leaders and staff who made this possible !

Attentive staff with big clean room

Attentive staff with big clean room
The staff was especially attentive and friendly, very helpful as well. Next to famous temple, within walking distance. Area secured for we need to pass through guards who will check if you are guests of hotel or tourists visiting temple need to pay for entrance fee. The hotel a room that has oxygen supply for guests who need it.
