The hotel is centrally located in Thimphu which is great for walking around but it is a little noisy at night. The rooms were good. We stayed 2 different times and had 2 different rooms. Both were fairly clean and comfortable. There were a few maintenance issues - such as you had to hold the shower handle in order to... More

As with the rest of our Bhutan trip, this hotel was chosen by our tour company. very centrally located, and with a comfortable spacious en-suite room. No window system can cope with the feral dogs barking all night, so bring your ear plugs. yes, really. The public area is very limited on the ground floor, and the restaurant is rather... More

located in the center of the city-right on 'traffic square'. rooms are well equipped with a wonderful view of the street and beyond. from upper floors one can see the big Buddha. The menu does not offer any special range for vegetarians and Jains, so was out of bounds for us! Staff is helpful courteous and friendly. maintenance needs some... More

This is a good hotel, very conveniently located in the heart of Thimpu city. If you love walking around and exploring the city, this is a nice place to stay. The rooms are big, the bathrooms clean and the wifi works. We probably had one of the better views, as ours was a corner room. The food is okay. And... More

The hotel is good and clean. It is situated near the main street. The staff are good and courteous. But the hotel does not have its own parking. The service time for ala carte meals is at least an hour. Also, the hotel has four floors but no lift. Overall a good hotel

More central is not possible: just next to the Swiss bakery and very close to the traffic point. And so you'll hear some noise, but the night was quiet. A hudge room on the 4th floor without elevator. Large bathroom with many amenities, good hot shower. Dinner was buffet and the food was not warm enough, catered to the large... More
