We spent two nights in that property on October 2012 during the pick season of Pujas. As booking was done by Travel agent of Kolkata, we had no other options or choice. This is the problem with thimphu hotels, u have to rely and depend upon travel agents. Anyway our overall experience was good. The staffs, most of which are... More

The Dragon Root Hotel's biggest asset is the location. It is located close to the Clock Tower and opposite the main market road. You can find the city hustle bustle and cultural activities happening till late in the evening. The hotel is decent with tidy rooms. Food and Room service was good. We, in fact, had the best breakfast in... More

It is necessary to get visa from a local travel agency. Then, I asked a travel agency in Japan, which has a connection with a local travel agency. And also, a local travel agency arranges whole sightseeing means such as a car for welcome and send off, a guide and a hotel. A guide came to see me at Paro... More

We booked into this hotel by phone but the hotel standard did not meet our expectations when we arrived. However, we learned later that there are many budget hotels nearby equal to this hotel at much cheaper rates. The next day we booked into the new grand which is half the price but equal standard. and there are many budget... More

Read many negative reviews about this hotel before travelling, was speculating, but the hotel turned out to be really good. Good location, at the heart of the town, good scenic view of the mountains. Value for money, paid around 1700 INR for a deluxe room. Room was cozy, staffs were helpful and service was good. The food was also good,... More

Don't expect a luxurious hotel and you won't be disappointed. This hotel is just a place to bed down for the night. It is rather run down, but it does have an OK bed and the bathroom is decent. At the breakfast buffet, the food was insufficient and some dishes were not replenished. The next morning, we requested for capati... More

The major USP of this hotel is its location almost at the center of Thimpu. The bed's are comfortable and the room is well furnished. But due to lack of maintenance its falling bit apart. Most rooms does not have any view from windows except someone's kitchen or toilet. Only the rooms at end of corridors has some view of... More

My partner and I just spent a night here when we needed to book a room at the last minute. Although this hotel was built just eight years ago, it is in poor condition, with leaky bathrooms and stained walls, and it is not kept very clean by housekeeping. Service throughout the hotel is lackluster. The food at the restaurant... More

If you end up here because every hotel in Thimpu is booked (it's a possibility during the festivals in September) don't worry too much, because the rooms are confortable enough and the location of the hotel is perfect.
