This is a lovely hotel set just above the center of Thimphu, with beautiful, traditionally carved and painted wood throughout. The rooms are very comfortable, the staff is very friendly and helpful and the restaurant serves decent Bhutanese and Indian food. Unlike the situation elsewhere in Bhutan, there really is free Wi-Fi in the rooms, and it works quickly and... More

Its a gorgeously built Bhutan style hotel with great interiors and very friendly staff. Located behind the main road market, it is very accessible for tourists. Despite all efforts though, the staff find it difficult to match Indian palates, especially for the finicky vegetarian .

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights on a family trip to Bhutan. It is a gorgeous building with local handicraft art all over the walls and the rooms are wonderful. The rooms come with a small living area which is cosy and decently sized bedroom space with a nice view of the surroundings of Thimpu. The restaurant downstairs... More

A wonderful Bhutanese style hotel well worth booking if you're travelling through Thimphu. We stayed two nights in a deluxe room, and enjoyed everyone of them. The hotel is situated a walkable distance away from the main town, so you get both the convenience and peacefulness. The food is fairly standard for Bhutan, so fairly basic but tasty enough. Overall... More

Its an awesome hotel in an equally awesome place. I think you wont find a "bad " hotel in Thimphu, given its pristine surroundings, smiling people, clean and pollution free environs. But the Namgay Heritage takes you away with its decor and feel good ambience. Its a quaint hotel, nicely done spacious rooms with amazing view of the hills all... More

Stayed at Namgay for 3 nights in Mar 2015. First off, it is not a standard hotel with standard things. Whilst not completely heritage, it does have a decor which gives a unique feeling. Pros > Rooms are spartan, clean, spacious and ofcourse close to being heritage > Service is fantastic - albeit a bit slow - but definitely worth... More

Perfect hotel, very nice with amazing decorations, in Bhutanese style, inside and outside. A huge chandelier makes it wonderful. Room was very big, clean, nice and comfortable, only disappointing things were separate beds and wifi only working in the entrance of the room. Dinner is various and great, in bhutanese style with some western influence (not so spicy as elsewhere).... More

Whilst a quaint hotel in traditional Bhutanse style. I do not recommend to stay here. The owners are conducting a full fit out of the rooms on the top forth floor and they continue to let out rooms without advising the clients. They continue to rent the third floor which is an untenable situation if you have a room on... More

Stayed in Feb 2014, hotel is average.. We used it only as a place to put up for 2 days while we looked around thimphu.. It is close to the middle of city, 5 mins walk. Lots of good restaurants nearby in the main city to try local cuisine.. They charge extra for credit card use, so make sure you... More
