The hotel is centrally located, close to the archery competition, market and shopping. The issue with the dog barking is real so bring ear plugs. However, this is not the only hotel in Bhutan where we experienced incessant barking all night....seems that all of Bhutan is overrun with dogs. The staff is very friendly and provided yogurt and porridge at... More

This Hotel is great. Clean, great food, friendly staff...but the stray dogs have taken over this town. When my guide warned not to leave the hotel after 8:39-9 because of aggressive dogs, I thought he was being overly cautious. He wasn't. I went for a walk at 6:30 and immediately watched 2 dogs chase someone down the street. They are... More

Positives: Staff helpful and friendly. Good hot water. No dogs barking one of two nights. Negatives: Dogs barking non-stop one of two nights. Buffet selection very very poor for breakfast and dinner (never tried lunch). Poor meaning four sad chafing dishes - one night there was a beef option, a fish option, mashed potatoes and a vegetable option. For breakfast... More

Good place to stay in Thimphu. Walkable distances to market, immigration centre, handicrafts shops,food joints etc. Room was very neat with TV, room heater,tea kettle etc. Bathroom with hot water, 24 hours. Tariff also reasonable. You will get it for 3000-3500(rupees) range, for standard rooms. Bhutan and Indian currency got same valuation. We can manage with Indian rupee there. No... More

Real value for money and central location at the Jumolhari hotel. The food in the restaurant is also good. All in all a nice place at a very central location. The staff are really friendly and go out of their way to help you. Wi-fi is working well. Rooms are nice and clean.

The hotel is solid, comfortable ( good beds, reliable hot water) and rooms spacious, if a little 70s in decor to western eyes. Wifi free and worked fine. Breakfasts were passable and supper fine - it was the ubiquitous buffet found everywhere. The restaurant is a little chaotic ( for example they run out of things - we had one... More

Stayed at the hotel for 1 night during Thimphu tshechu. Convenient location in the city center. Several shops are close to the hotel. In the evening we went to a club within walking distance called Mojo Park.

Fine for a one night stay if you're just using it to sleep. Nothing good or bad to report apart from the wifi which was pretty fast. You may want to take ear plugs if you are a light sleeper given cars love to bib their horns and there are stray dogs that bark.

We stayed here for 4 days and in different rooms. The location is central and convenient. The rates are reasonable. The rooms were generally clean and comfortable and I thought the beds were really comfortable. The bathrooms were crammed and a little aged. The showers were temperamental. One night the TV was not working. Lighting in the room was lacking.... More

I was told by the tour agency in my country that this is a four star hotel but in my opinion it only has a 2.5 star standard. The hotel is basic. There was no lift but the hotel staffs helped us with our luggages to our rooms on the 3rd floor. There was no air-conditioning. My room came with... More
