We stayed here for 1 night at the start of our holiday in Bhutan. Although it is expensive to visit Bhutan, the hotels are of a lower standard than elsewhere so you need to set your expectations accordingly. We stayed in better ones later in our trip. We had a big room, but the bathroom was shabby with mouldy grouting,... More

Economical hotel which is centrally located and provides good service. The food is good. But I had to book in advance for it. Got a good price for both food and stay compared to other hotels in the same range.

Stayed here 2 nights, but separately. Both times though, we got the one corner room facing the main street. I reckon it's because that's the bigger room, and the only one big enough to fit triple-sharing. Hotel is simple but fine. Staff is helpful and efficient. The room was comfortable too, and came with a sitting area, even after putting... More

I stayed her for business for two nights. This hotel is comfortable and clean, but definitely just average. There are a number of dogs barking at night, but this is normal for Bhutan and not the hotel's fault. The breakfast is ok, and the staff is very nice and accommodating. But nothing out of the ordinary.

We stayed here twice during our trip to Bhutan. I have pretty low expectations for hotels in a country like Bhutan, so I can't complain too much. Overall I'd say it was adequate for two nights. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the restaurant is very good. The location is great and there's an excellent momo shop a... More

Good.... Staff very pleasant. Clean rooms/bathroom. Good location next to clock tower square. Food was really nice, extensive selection to order, not a buffet. Large selection of drinks. Not so good.... Beds uncomfortable, pillows not very good. Noisy at night, mostly dogs barking. Rooms are really hot at night, even with windows open and fan working. Very quiet hotel, we... More

The staff were excellent here - they did seem a bit nervous and inexperienced but that's not uncommon in Bhutan. They tried hard. Super location, decent food, wifi very good. Can't complain at all - really good place to stay.

This hotel was comfortable and the staff was all pleasant and welcoming. The food in the hotel restaurant was very good, and the location of the hotel was perfect. It made it easy to spend every possible moment walking through Bhutan's capital city.
