Phuntso Pelri is one of those places to recommend! In the very centre of Thimpu, with spacious, nicely decorated and clean rooms, nice bed and pillow, professional staff and fast wifi. The buffet is ok; basic but filling. A very comfortable stay.

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

We checked in hotel on 19th May 2014 and stayed in hotel for three nights. Hotel is in the market and you do not have to walk down to get things as all things are easily available near about. Hotel rooms are big and spacious with all basic facilities. Staff is very cooperative and listen to your problems, if any.... More

The best things about the Hotel are, its central location, close to Hong Kong Market, good handicraft shops in the lobby area, very helpful staff and excellent food. The quality... More

On arrival at this hotel, our guide facilitated our check-in and we were given a good cup of tea and biscuits in the lobby - always welcome after a long day! The room was spacious, clean, and we had everything we needed. The furnishings are lovely. Beautiful wooden floors. We also had more towels then necessary and spare pillows in... 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
