        Unbeatable Location; Always Friendly and Helpful Staff”

        The Retreat must be by far the best place to stay in the sleepy little rustic town of Shangri-la. For a quiet, contemplative in comfort, this is it. The Tibetan-style restaurant is superb (cannot say the same for the Western) with its outstanding view of the monastery, and their Linka Spa has expert staff. You just would not think of staying anywhere else.

        Excellent way to finish our trip”

        Comfortable rooms, great food and attentive staff

        This isn't somewhere we would usually stay, but following the fires in the old town and subsequent lack of tourists in town the rooms were great value. We ended up eating at the tibetan restaurant in the hotel complex every night, the food and wine list were really good, and you get a great view of the monestary. The upstairs bar and library are nice for relaxing in the evening, and the traditional dancing they put on was more fun than we'd expected it to be. The staff were happy to drop us and pick us up from the front of the monestary whenever we wanted to get the bus into town. When you first arrive you need to stop at the initial entrance gate where the guard will have your name on a list of hotel guests so you don't need the monestary ticket to enter, but after check-in you're given a card to wave at them so you can just stay on the bus. From the gate it's still quite a few km to where the hotel is, we didn't realise this and although it was quite a nice walk, we would have been better off getting on the next bus or calling the hotel to pick us up (or just getting a taxi in the first place). We did the monestary tour with the hotel guide, and also enjoyed walking the paths around the monestary back to the hotel when we weren't in a hurry to get anywhere. There were free yoga and meditation classes on offer but we didn't take part in them. The old town iwast still interesting to look around, even though the centre was missing, and we did a day trip cycling through nearby villages. Try the beers from the local micro-brewery, they're surprisingly good and have names like 'black yak' and 'supernova' but aren't listed as such on the menu at the hotel.

        Indeed a gem in shangrila. Although it is about 10 mins drive from town, the hotel is beautifully located near to the no. 1 attraction in the area, namely songzalin lamasery. Attentive service when we reached. We were greeted with their homemade cookies n ginger tea. Felt very warm although it is winter season. Will definitely return.

        When the driver drove us through the narrow lane between Tibet housing. We are wondering are we at the right place. The moment we reach the hotel our impression totally change. We have nice view of the surrounding Tibetan farmland. Songtsam Lin Montastry just a short walking distance from the hotel.Staff are very friendly. They even upgrade to a bigger room size for us. Room is very comfortable with heater and even has a small chimney place. They will lit up the chimney when we are out for dinner. By the time we are back the room is very warm and cosy.

        Location and services

        This hotel is located on a hill right behind songtsam monastery. It's facing a grassland with herds of Tibetan yaks, and beyond that, it's the grand monastery. Rooms are expensive for Yunnan standard, but the view and the services make it worth every cent. Geusts are basically bounded to have meals in the hotel but the food is good and reasonably priced. Tips: there are complimentary activities, such as meditation, guided tour of the monastery etc., provided by the hotel every day. Do consider those when you plan your daily activities. There is a spa: staff are very genuine and warm, but not very well trained on techniques.

        Nice hotel, but a bit expensive”

        Quiet location, 20 minutes from the old town. Free ginger tea if you ask nicely!

        The best aspect of this hotel is it's location close to the monastery. Walking to the old town is a bit far, so best to use a taxi (40 yuan), or local No. 3 bus (1 yuan). Breakfast was fairly good, both Western and Chinese, not quite 5-star standard, but almost. Room was acceptable, but not outstanding for the price. Very helpful staff provided free guided tour of the monastery and the surrounding hills.
