This hotel is well located near the main street of Thimphu. The room is nice and clean. Staffs are nice and helpful. Breakfast is not as good as it should be for a 3 star hotel. Wifi is a bit hard to connect if there are many tourists in the hotel.

Hotel Phuntsho Pelri is very centrally located hotel, from this place main market is 5min. walk but away from traffic noise pollution. Rooms are very good, staffs very cordial, and from window of the rooms ( Right side of the hotel) you can see sitting Buddha also. Over all very nice experience.

Phuntsho Pelri has an excellent location right in the heart of Thimphu. The management is competent and the service in the restaurant is superb. We were always last for breakfast but were always served with smiles. Our deluxe room was clean, had a view and the double bed was very comfortable.This hotel is just away from the market so everything... More

We visited for a couple of days on the first week of June. The location of the hotel is excellent. You can easily walk down for a couple of minutes to Nordzin Lam( the main street of Thimpu). The Thai and Continental food are okay. But the Chinese dishes are simply not up to the mark. The staff is very... More

Its a nice enough hotel, typical of all Bhutanese hotels. We had average water pressure in the shower, but given I'm used to worse accommodation it was fine. It is close to the main road, about 5 minutes walk. The meals served here were fine, usually at dinner something like 8+ dishes served with rice. Generally too much food! Wifi... More

Hotel rooms are big and spacious with all basic facilities. Staff is very cooperative and listen to your problems, if any.... More

I checked in to Phuntsho Pelri on April 20th till 22nd and it was a good value for money. The rooms were neat and clean and it provided necessary amenities such as TV, water, toilet paper. It did not have toiletries so if you forgot them, then you should run down to stores and buy some which doesn't cost much.... More
