To start with, I got a call from their reception a day before we arrived at Shangri La. The hotel had arranged for an airport pickup, checked us in promptly and served us with welcome...

We stayed first three nights at a hotel in the city of Shangri-la before spending the last couple nights here. We should have spent all our nights here if we had known this one in advance. All the staffs provided very friendly and warm reception everywhere in this hotel. The ginger tea and cookies were excellent. The room and bed...

Stayed for 2 nights at a room overlooking the greens and the rear side of Songzanlin Lamasery. The view was stunning and perfect for the retreat of the mind. The room was cozy, clean, and nicely decorated and I absolutely loved the old-fashioned fireplace! The mattress might be a little soft for some but it might be a pleasant thing...

A beautiful hotel, with gorgeous rooms, spectacular views looking over the monastery, lovely public areas, attentive - but not intrusive - staff and delicious food. While it is some way from the gates of the monastery and the walk around the lake, there is a gratis electric buggy that will drive you down (and back, if you wish). Great ginger...

We have travelled and lived in China for 11 years, so we are used to Chinese hotels. Songtsam completely surprised us with a perfect location - straight in front of the mini Potola temple.
