I stayed at the Phuntsho Pelri a total of 3 nights. The hotel is centrally located in Thimphu and within walking distance of the downtown area. So location is very good. The hotel looks very nice on the outside as it is in a beautiful Bhutanese design. However, the rooms were very average...maybe even below average. When I walked into... More

I stayed at this hotel with my parents during my Thimphu visit. The best part of the hotel is the location since it is in the middle of town. The stay was a pleasant one and the hospitality at the hotel was really good. One thing of course could be a problem which is paying through credit cards. Even though... More

Hotel is well located close to the centre of Thimphu but unfortunately the hotel has no atmosphere or character. The rooms are located off a central mezzanine which tends to amplify the noise of people in the reception and the seating area. Our room (31) was extremely noisey being above the kitchen extraction system and construction work was taking place... More

My wife and I were staying here 2 days only, but we had a very good experience at the hotel. Everything is clean and nice, and within walking distance you are in the main street of Thimphu. The beds were nice and comfortable and though I woke up for the dogs a few times, my wife did not hear them... More

Well located, fair service, average food. Rooms are a little small and constricted, but the view from my room was rather nice. The shopping areas are close by, but the indoor shops are quite reasonable and well stocked too. Judging by the large gang of bikers who checked in at the same time as us, I guess this is a... More

This hotel is very very ordinary - close to city centre but not really best of location, off the main streets. The overall upkeep of hotel is average as well - the lift would get stuck up and give us scare every time we used it. The rooms are basic, clean (thank god) and water runs in taps. The staff...

Hotel Phuntsho Pelri is centrally located in the city of Thimphu – the capital of Bhutan. I stayed with my wife in this hotel on 14th and 15th of June. The check-in was smooth and efficiently handled by the reception staff. The room allotted to us was spacious with comfortable beds, sitting furniture, a coffee maker, and comfortable. The wash...

Excellent service, fair prices at the souvenir shop, clean room and good bathroom, great location in old town. Possible to connect to internet on their computer. Be careful of the double taxes on everything. Good coffee in the bar.

This hotel looks like a decent place on the first look, but is not. I stayed here for 2 nights, and had a bad experience. Reasons why: 1. The day we checked-in, and went for dinner to the restaurant (which was a part of my MMT package), I was told that as there are no customers in the hotel, they... More

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.
