This part of the city is being renovated, tearing down the old and making new with an old look. It is sad really. This hotel is old. And it shows. Positives: Location, shuttle service to airport (see stipulations), staff is friendly, unique in style. Negatives: Before I list the negatives, let me say that we were more let down by... More

OK, so the beds are Chinese (hard, like an ironing board), and the stairs to the rooms are steep, but Joseph, the English-speaking staff-member, is the BEST! Kind, helpful, and caring. The Inn was lucky to survive the fire, and is well-situated in the old-town. No breakfast is included, but there's a good, cheap restaurant just steps away from the... More

The most friendly hotel staff ever. Makes you feel comfortable and warm. We went during the cold winter and late last year and they were really helpful and made a difference. Most buses and public would not or could not drive into the 'Old Town' and they practically walked out to help us carry our luggage and walk us in... More

We are from New Zealand and we stayed in the hotel during the disastrous fire broke out. We were so lucky that none of us got hurt. The hotel itself survived from the fire. The staff were supportive and kind. We shared dinners by the fireplace. We played games and chatted in the candle light. We really enjoyed our stay... More

We booked the hostel only one day in advance but were picked up at the airport without any problems. The staff of the hostel is extremely friendly and even shared their dinner with us and assisted us for hours to organize the further trip. The rooms are clean, decorated very neatly and have a heating mat available for colder nights... More

We spent three nights at the Bird of Paradise and the location couldn't have been better. Right in the heart of the old city, we were able to explore the cobble-stoned lanes at our leisure. Terrific Tibetan restaurants were just around the corner as was the excellent Shangri-la Handicraft Development Center. From the upper deck of the hotel, there was... More

We were greeted at the airport and at the reception desk by a friendly welcome. The guy, who seems to man the front desk at all days of the day and night, speaks rudimentary English, but is extremely helpful and wrote us notes to find and navigate our way around the town and to arrange onwards travel. The old town... More
