I had visited Bhutan in the month of May 2015 and stayed in this hotel for 2 days. This hotel is located at Thimphu city, near Le Meridien Thimphu has superior quality rooms with a road view. The rooms are so big that a 10 persons can stay comfortably. With 24 hours running hot water, with big screen LED TV,... 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

The hotel is located right on the market, but quiet. Good rooms, good heating and a nicely heated restaurant. Morning breakfast in the sun was amazing. Staff is courteous. We got a corner room with 2 walls of glass. Great sun through the day.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights, our first two nights in the country, then another night later in our trip.The facility is centrally located and much of Thimphu is in easy walking distance. It was nice to be able to walk from the hotel to see some of the town. The staff was helpful, and willing to help.... More

I stayed in this hotel for a week, after the construction noise really got me out of the first hotel that was booked for me. I didn't want to change my central location, so this was really quite obvious choice. It turned out much better experience than I had hoped for and I kind of regretted not moving there earlier....

This was a very clean hotel with lovely staff and very comfortable beds. The shower was nice and hot, there was a bathtub (always a treat in Asia!) and a great central location close to many shops. I had only two complaints- one is that in the restaurant, they did not mention before hand if something would be an extra... More

The hotel looks good and is in a central location but the biggest problem is noise. The traffic dies down at night, but that's when the dogs start howling and fighting! None of the windows in my large corner room shut properly , so there was no real way to block out the noise. At one stage , I counted... More

The hotel is located in a good central place. However, being centrally located, noise does come through to the rooms from the street level, including dogs barking during the night. Take ear plugs with you and you'll have a really good sleep as the beds are very comfy and lovely cotton sheets you just sink into. The room was certainly... More
