As a remote area, Tibet dose not have very favorable accommodation conditions, but the lodging condition in Tibet has been greatly improved due to rapidly developing tourism in Tibet. Generally speaking, the overall level of accommodation in Tibet is lower than that in other cities of China.
You can find star-rated hotels in big cities of Tibet such as Lhasa, Shigatse, Tsedang, and Nyingchi, but hotels in small cities and remote areas are very basic, usually having a public bathroom with squat toilet. Specifically, in Lhasa, lodging ranges from cheap guest houses to luxury five star hotels, while in Shigatse, Gyangtse, Tsedang and Nyingchi, the highest standard is three stars; in Tingri, Zhangmu and Nagchu, the highest are two stars; and in other smaller or remote areas, guest houses might be your only choice unless you have brought tents with you.
Hotels in Lhasa provide tourists a wide range of choice, varing from luxury 5-star hotels and comfortable 4-star hotels to economic 2 or 3-star hotels and cheap guesthouses or hostels, but the most popular hotels in Lhasa are featured Tibetan style hotels.
