This is an average hotel located right in the heart of the capital city. It's a bit old, and the floors are rather creaky. The rooms are large and comfortable with portable heaters provided for the chilly nights. Free WiFi is available throughout the hotel. The guest rooms can get rather noisy, especially if you are in the back. The... More

I stayed at the Pedling at the end of February. This is a very good hotel in the city centre The service is excellent and all the employees are pleasant and friendly, although they lack much knowledge of local attractions. The rooms are clean, heated and the restaurant serves very good food at reasonable rates. The only drawbacks were the... More

Hotel has spacious clean rooms with space heaters. The staff were helpful and quite personable. The location is in the center of the city, so one can easily explore the area. The restaurant has a nice menu with several choices of beer and other spirits. The servers and cooks are outgoing, polite and pleasant. We found the wifi to be... More

The hotel faces a little plaza where 3 streets meet, across the street was the Swiss Bakery (never opened) the open spaces are car parks all day and at night Dog City. One block down and to the left is the central intersection for the town. If you get a room in the back say 308 it opens on to... More

Located in the heart of the shopping areas of Thimphu, it gives us the mobility to roam around on foot. Rooms are decent and clean, except for the noise that we experienced mostly around 6am. We figured that the commotion probably came from the ground level where the breakfast hall is. Wifi connection are comparatively good than other cities we... More

Location is its best appeal, free wifi, spacious room, clean, room heater, city attractions is all within walking distance and the hotel is within the city center yet away from the main road. The only negative point is, dogs noices at night can be a nuisance. Try to choose room facing the front to reduce noises.

Bhutan has very basic accommodation when compared to international standards, so please don't be to disappointed. It is worth a little sacrifice to see bhutan. This hotel, from what I understand, is regarded as one of the best in Bhutan. Based on international standards I would give it a 2-3 star rate. We stayed second floor. Very basic in room.... More

this was our first hotel in Bhutan and we did not expect too much, so were quite pleasantly suprised. It is a medium sized, centrally located hotel with reasonable rooms and restaurant. We found parts rather cold but that wasn't a big problem. This was very popular with influential locals ( Minister of Agriculture held a function there; and a... More

Clean and functional is about what you should expect at a 3 star hotel. Good tasty food with the standard buffet cuisine. Good location for shopping and access to the Swiss Bakery next door. The perennial problem of cold dogs barking all night is present here
