no wifi in the room, staff was not as friendly as at other hotels but were overall fine, good location, be careful the water is scalding hot, there are no fans and no screens on the windows so you will either be really hot or bitten by mosquitos. If you open the windows you will also hear dogs barking all.night.long.... More

The swimming pool is stunning and gym and spa facilties made my stay really fun. The rooms are lovely and the staff couldnt have been more helpful. I hope to be... More

I stayed at Namgay with my family for 2 nights (26 and 27 May 2015), we had 2 rooms, but our experience was poor, due to following reasons - (1) Pathetic Breakfast with minimal options for vegeterians, (2) Weird Food Options available for lunch/dinner and the quality of food was very bad, (3) At checkout time, their credit card system...

This hotel provided all the modern conveniences. The room was beautiful, with thick woven draperies and bedspread. Only King bed and in-room TV we had in Bhutan. It was spacious, luxurious, and immaculate. The diningroom provided an excellent and profuse dinner, and the women working on staff were friendly and helpful. Carved woodwork in the atrium was very beautiful. There... More

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.

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
