I stayed in Gangtey Palace for two nights in late December, 2014. After seeing the beautiful photos and all those great reviews about Gangtey, I was thrilled to stay there. On my first night of stay, I was placed in a super tiny room. There are two beds, a portable heater, a nightstand, a closet, and a small table in... More

We stayed in room 210 of this hotel Feb 1st and found it to be delightful. The painted beamed ceiling and ornate column with a king bed and sitting area were charming and the old worn wood floors were beautiful. It had old elegant touches everywhere and a wall treatment on the two outside walls made you feel that you... More

Worst choice of hotel in our 9 day journey Pros - good view from the hotel - good premise for photo taking - even your own room has its special taste for being traditional Cons - no cleaning done on the traditional wooden decoration, so dusty. See the photo of my room. - noisy wooden stairs and corridor, poor noise... More

This was the best Hotel we stayed in, while in Bhutan, with 6" walls once the room heated up it was very comfortable. The Alter room is an added bonus, if you get a chance to view it. The spring water hot stone bath is well worth booking to prepare. Even with the thick walls the wild dogs are a... More

We stayed for 2 nights at Hote Gangtey Palace at Paro. After reading all the reviews in Trip Advisor, we really expected Hotel Gangtey Palace to be our best stay in Bhutan. But it turned out to be exactly opposite. Shabby room decoration, creaking floor boards, cramped up bathroom, dimly lit rooms and no access to wifi in rooms made... More

Stayed for 2 nights on arrival in Bhutan and one night before departure. The rooms are authentically Bhutanese, with polished wooden floors, firm mattresses and traditional decor. Electric heaters ensured the rooms were plenty warm enough and the bathrooms were western and of reasonable standard. The staff were friendly and helpful - happy to arrange an early breakfast for us... More

Me and my wife were in Bhutan for a week and we visited Paro, Thimpu, Punakha along with the most isolated places in Bhutan such as Phobjika Valley and Haa Valley. Gangtey Palace was the last of our stops where we spent 3 nights. The hotel itself is 100+ yrs old and the rooms are very cozy, warm. Their restaurant... More

I have now stayed at Gangtey Palace four times and still it is my favourite hotel in Bhutan, for the friendliness of the staff and for the experience of staying in such an authentically Bhutanese building. But as one would expect from a converted old building, not all rooms are uniformally charming; some are small and dark with no view.... More

We were out up in a Spacious room with a full lounge set and two electric heaters. The view from our 3rd floor room was stunning. The bed was warm with electric blanket and hot water bags so we were able to have a good sleep. The room was fully equipped with kettle, electric heater, hair dryer. The food served... More
