During our visit to Thimpu in October,2015, we a family group of four persons stayed for 2-nights. Both of our rooms were front-facing rooms in the 2nd floor which had a view of the surrounding mountains. The rooms were fairly large and well furnished with clean toilets. There was tea & coffee in the room. The hotel restaurant provided both... More

The rooms are clean and functional, well heated. Staff is friendly. They have a restaurant with fairly good options. This hotel is centrally located so you have easy access to restaurants and market if required Make sure you pre-book your meal orders as it may take some time and reconfirm your order as language can be a barrier especially if...

I stayed at Hotel Phuntsho Pelri on December 2014. It was early winter and an off season for tourism in Bhutan and the Hotel was much less crowded than usual. The place was booked by my agent Mr. Mindu Dorji from Exscursion To Himalaya's. Though I was skeptical at first since the Hotel did not have a good review in... More

The location is great – walking distance to the middle of town with interesting shops and local eateries, including a convenience store around the corner selling cheap bottled water. The building itself is quite pretty and I liked the lobby. Our room’s door faced right into the front desk area – seriously, we'd peek through the door and see guests... More

This place is very standard, the rooms are good and the hotel itself is located on the outskirts of town. Nearby displaced there several stores and things to do. If we is okay very standard and seems like service is not quite there yet. The staff is very pleasant but I think they do not understand the meaning of service... More

I just returned from my first trip to Bhutan where I stayed a this property for a night. At first, the positive sides of the hotel: excellent staff. I have seldom met such helpful and courteous staff in hotels. The rooms are very specious and I found the bed to be comfortable. The ground floor has some decent souvenir shops.... More

This hotel is in a great location – less than five minutes to the 2 main streets that run through Thimphu. The rooms were of high calibre and the hot water worked – not always the case in Bhutan. Breakfast and dinner were buffet style as is standard in Bhutanese hotels. Our group stayed in three hotels during our visit... More

Thimpu was fantastic and this hotel is really well located, but that is where it stops. Food is boring and bland, noisy dogs plus noise from the bar below plus the rats above equalled very little sleep. On the good side the reception looked fabulous and the staff were polite but a lot more is expected for the price.

My sister and I are currently staying in this Hotel but thank goodness we are leaving tomorrow. The food and service in the restaurant is appalling. Exactly the same food for dinner on consecutive nights which was limited, cold, fatty and poorly cooked, perhaps it was the same food as the previous night served up cold! No choice of pudding...
