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.

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
