The hotel was almost at the end of the town limit because of which a few main attractions are just within few of kms apart (Rinpung Dzong, Kichu Lakhang etc.). Rooms are quite clean, services are great....Food in the restaurant was quite delicious. We tasted few Bhutanese delicacies which turned out to be quite good. The only drawback was not... More

Located at the centre of Paro town , it is within reach of all important tourist sights and the shops(dont forget to negotiate prices). The standard rooms have an attached bathroom without... More

Undoubtedly one of the best place to stay in Paro and the rates are not too high. For 1200 per night we got good room, hot water 24 hrs, heater, TV, coffee machine etc.. The owners are good people and do take good care of you. Its just 2 mins walking to all the necessary shops... Also as they have... More

This hotel disappointed us. We stayed for first two nights in our 10 days trip in Bhutan & we had a very bad stay in this hotel. The only positive side was the food served in the restaurant which was quite decent. The stay was further affected by non stop barking of stray dogs throughout the night.

We checked into the Suite and oh boy it was big and clean. The food is just amazing although we were quite late... More

Its a hotel with very basic amenities. However, the lady got her personal hair dryer for me when I needed one.They put an extra heater in... More

Arrived at this small guest house in the town centre with several car scrap dealers nearby. It has a quaint local wood carving frontage but inside is grubby without being dirty. Showed to our room which was very basic but also had large patches of damp and a bathroom with waste pipes not connected. The owner was very friendly and... More
