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

I just returned from my first trip to Bhutan where I stayed a this property for a night. At first, the positive sides of the hotel: excellent staff. I have seldom met such helpful and courteous staff in hotels. The rooms are very specious and I found the bed to be comfortable. The ground floor has some decent souvenir shops.... More

This hotel is in a great location – less than five minutes to the 2 main streets that run through Thimphu. The rooms were of high calibre and the hot water worked – not always the case in Bhutan. Breakfast and dinner were buffet style as is standard in Bhutanese hotels. Our group stayed in three hotels during our visit... More

Thimpu was fantastic and this hotel is really well located, but that is where it stops. Food is boring and bland, noisy dogs plus noise from the bar below plus the rats above equalled very little sleep. On the good side the reception looked fabulous and the staff were polite but a lot more is expected for the price.

My sister and I are currently staying in this Hotel but thank goodness we are leaving tomorrow. The food and service in the restaurant is appalling. Exactly the same food for dinner on consecutive nights which was limited, cold, fatty and poorly cooked, perhaps it was the same food as the previous night served up cold! No choice of pudding...

The hotel is centrally located, in a very noisy place, right next to a bar. Loud people hanging around till much after midnight, barking dogs, no AC/fan and the windows cannot be opened on account of mosquitoes and noise! The hotel restaurant is small and the 2 days we stayed there, we were forced to eat dinner in room since... More

Even in tiny Thimphu, the Phuntsho Pelri Hotel is as central as you can get. The rooms are adequate and the beds are comfortable but if you have a room overlooking the lane on the left, the nocturnal barking of the street dogs can be more than a nuisance. The staff are very polite and helpful, especially those in the... More

Thimphu, is a small cit. the hotel is located downtown near the city center. The rooms are big, simple not luxurious. We were here for 2 night on business and pleasure. It was arranged by the travel agent, location is excellent, we had a very good lunch which with various vegetables, chicken and fish. some spicy some not really nice.

This is a good hotel at a great location. Almost everything a business traveler needs is a stone's throw away. Clean interior, good restaurants. The staff were very courteous and always went the extra mile to cater to guests' needs. The breakfast spread was a little disappointing though. Could have been better. Would love to stay here again.
