3-star Kyichu Hotel


Kyichu Hotel is a 3-star hotel owned by a Tibetan family located in the old town around 150 meters from Jhokang Temple and around 1 kilometer from the Potala Palace.  The Kyichu hotel started in the year 1996 and its location is near the Tsomenling, opposite Shenli Times Square. 

The only reason that the Kyichu hotel is 3-star instead of 4-star is the parking area. The hotel doesn't have a parking area since it is in the center of the town so Travelers will have to stop near the road at the gate of the hotel. This doesn't affect the Travelers since the Traveler's vehicle can quickly park near the hotel gate for arrival and departure. 

In the year 2010, The hotel has constructed a new building with a beautiful view of the garden and the Potala Palace from the roof.

In the older building above the reception, they offer Standard rooms, and the cost is around 50-60 US Dollars per night, including breakfast depending on the season. 

In the newer building with a garden view, they offer a Standard room with a price of around 70-80 US Dollar per night including the breakfast, and the Suit Delux room cost 90 - 100 US Dollar per night including the breakfast.

The hotel has a cozy restaurant with a beautiful garden. The restaurant offers Tibetan food, Continental, Indian, Nepal foods. 

Many local Tibetans also have Lunch in the garden in the afternoon because of the food and the location. 

Recently the hotel is managed by a Nepali staff, namely Indra at the Reception who speaks good English and Tibetan. 

Kyichu Hotel is Ranked 8th in the Trip advisor hotels in Lhasa. 


Kyichu Hotel is famous for its great location and beautiful garden. This hotel is one of the oldest hotels in Lhasa, including the Yak hotel, Banakshol hotel, Kirey hotel, and Snowland hotel.
