I visited Bhutan for my Honeymoon trip and stayed in Phuntsho Pelri for 3 nights and was happy with service and quality. Nice spacious rooms with good views of the capital of the Happiness country. Next time when I will visit I book it in advance.

This is a good, well appointed modern hotel with some very traditional features which help to fix it in its surroundings. It provided very comfortable, carefree, accommodation and was excellent base from which to explore the town and the valley. Good food and excellent service.

I have been in three different hotels in Thimphu, and in my personal ranking this comes second. The location is great, well located, Season's pizzeria a few meters away, as well as the main street Norzim Lam. It has a nice and welcoming entrance, with some souvenirs shops and has friendly staff. Rooms are very basic but clean and comfortable:... More

Hotel Phuntsho Pelri was a good choice for hotel in Thimpu. The location is good as it is just behind the main street of Thimpu and the hotel has tastefully been designed. The rooms were comfortably designed and the hot water in the bathroom was very good. There is free wifi throughout the entire hotel and it works well. The... More

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
