Nice hotel, friendly staffs, good location, good choice for your stay in Shangri-la”

Our group stayed at Bodhi Inn for one night. We got a chance to talk with the owner, Tashi ,and knew more detail about Bodhi(Bo-dhi) which we would like to share. There are 4 businesses under name Bodhi which are: Hotel, Travel, Handicrafts and Cafe&Bistro (including wine). Hotel is good. It located 2-3mins walk to old town. Staffs are friendly and have service mind. Room has electric blanket(to keep you warm all night). They have(all day)hot ginger tea at the lobby that you can drink for free. Travel, our group bought tour from hotel to Shika snow mountain. It is worth the money. We also bought ticket for visiting Songzanlin Monastery (cheaper than buying at ticket office) from hotel. Handicrafts, they have shop opposite hotel. Price is reasonable and cheaper than airport shop. Cafe&Bistro, most of our meals in Shangri-la, we ate at hotel. There are many choices of food that you can order such as Tibetan, Chinese and Western food. They also have coffee and local wine.

Discovering Shangri-la”

Bodhi Inn provides a relaxed and beautiful atmosphere to enjoy the fascinating region of Shangri-la. The Inn is filled with local art, beautifully placed. Local music fills the space at a comfortable volume. Breakfast includes local, Chinese and western set menus. They also offer a full dining experience, along with local wines and beers. As is always the case, the service is what makes the difference. The owner is not only fluent in English, but an expert of the region. He offers important insights as well as competitive prices to visit the sights with the greatest value. This level pf personal service is invaluable. Enjoy Bodhi Inn.

Great Host”

Decorations, Staff Friendliness & Cleanliness

Shangri-La Bodhi Inn might look simple and normal from outside, but once you enter it, it's a different world altogether. The owner, Tashi, spent quite a bit decorating the place and it turned out amazing. The staffs were friendly and helpful and Tashi helped us organise a visit to Bluemoon Valley and also prepared us a wonderful dinner. This was after we had an awful experience with a local tourguide (where we decided to terminate his service). Room was a bit cold during this time but there was electric blanket and heater provided. Overall, it was an enjoyable stay. Note: The street is under construction and can be quite messy for now.

Great place to stay in Shangri-la ”

The Bodhi Inn was a wonderful find and superbly located to explore the old town of Shangri la. I loved the traditional Yunnan decor, colorful, warm and welcoming. The complimentary ginger tea was very welcome and helped my altitude sickness and raging toothache which Tashi, the owner of Bodhi Inn very kindly helped me soothe with cloves! We had some interesting chats about touring into Tibet, which he knows well. Great place, highly recommended. Two days stay was way too short - I'll be back.

Good Location and service”

Location, Service

Stayed for only a night, the owner and staff were humble people and hosted us well. Shangri-la was too cold and the staff served us hot ginger tea the moment we first arrived. The Lady at the reception (I presume is the owner's sister) prepared breakfast early in the morning at 730am and packed for us as we have to leave the hotel early for our day trip. Breakfast was simple but there was a choice of Chinese, American or Tibetan style for guests to choose from. Hotel façade has a Tibetan feel as the owner is from Lhasa, Tibet. Overall, we enjoyed our short stay in this Shangrila Bodhi Inn.

Best hotel in old town areas”

We stayed 2 nights at Bodhi Inn and we were so impressed with the hotel. Tashi (hotel owner) was very friendly and supportive. He spoke so well English and advises heaps about the living in Shangri-la. The hotel is situated only 5 min walk from the street and easy to find. Hotel provided all day ginger tea (good for altitude sickness). Hotel is decorated in Tibetan style and I strongly recommend to stay at this hotel.

Fun option in Shangri-La”

We were here in January. There were no tourists in Shangri-La at the time so the staff what very limited at the hotel. Breakfast took a very long time to come out since there were only two people on staff, but it was a good great fast. We weren't in a hurry so it wasn't a problem to us. I'm sure it wouldn't take that long in the Summer time, at peak season. The rooms were clean and had hot water. The heating was okay, but since the heater was up near the ceiling, the hot air wouldn't get circulated near the beds very well. I really loved the decor of the hotel; it gave it a family oriented vibe. The location is great. Inside the old city area, but only a few buildings from the main road, where you can pick up a DiDi or a tour van. I'd Recommend this hotel.

It is a nice place to stay right in the heart of Shangri-la. When I was there , the old town was still being rebuilt- but I feel that it is still worth a visit and I enjoyed the peace and quiet.
