Central guest house convenient to all services
Have stayed at Potala on previous visits and service and facilities were excellent. A little disappointed this time as basic room dusty and uncomfortable due to ongoing renovations. Unable to ungrade so moved to alternate hotel

Hotel was misrepresented
The room we were assigned was not representative of the hotel description and pictures on the website. The room was rundown.

8/10 Very good

Great guest house in Thamel
The guest house was being renovated over winter so it wasn't at it's usual best, The staff were fantastic and volunteered to go out to the airport to pick up my delayed baggage when I couldn't do it. The room was fine although the bathroom floor got very wet when the shower was used. I'd go back because of the great staff.

Great staff rescued my bag!
The hotel was being renovated but all was fine. But the best thing is that the staff volunteered to go to the airport to recover my bag lost by Air Asia as I was out of town for a week. They were exceptional.

8/10 Very good

Nice, inexpensive hotel
Located right in the midst of Thamel, close to everything there. Basic accomodations but clean and safe. They have a safe if you require it as well as locked storage if you're out of town for a few days and need to store luggage/bag, etc. Friendly staff who speak good english. Reasonable prices (I paid 1200 rs per night while I was there). They also have free wifi which is nice.
