It's a traditional hotel with wonderful panoramic view overlooking The Paro Valley. Having a historical value where the uncle of the current King got married. Pros Price is really reasonable compared to the location and view, but amenities are limited Fascinating view of the mountains and the vast landscape You can view aeroplane take off from a distance Rooms are...

A former residence turned into a boutique hotel. Friends and I had a blast for the three nights we stayed there. The rooms were quaint and comfortable, especially in the wing where I stayed with 3 other friends. There was no television or phones, so getting messages across required that we actually chat to each other in person, which was... More

Our trip in Bhutan started with a stay here for one night - was really a great initiation to the beautiful kingdom. This heritage property is perched on a hilltop overlooking the entire Paro Valley. It was amazing seeing airplanes descending and taking off from the airport. Being a heritage structure, the rooms are not quite conforming to the usual... More

This hotel is an old palace, but maintained very well. It is situated on top of the hill with an excellent view of Paro valley and Paro Dzong. Staff very cordial, very good food, clean room and best thing is location. If you want best location in Paro and you are not fussy about new building or contruction, this hotel... More

This hotel has some of the very best views and you will need to get a deluxe room. Food is very very ordinary. Expansive tea for 100 rs. Not worth it. Just heated water and some tea flavor with milk. The bathrooms leak water all over. Worst wifi connection,

If you are looking for western style blandness with assured creature comforts this is probably not the place for you. If however you want to stay in a hotel that oozes character and history then you will love Gangtey Palace. But it is not only the hotel that has character, the staff were all a delightful bunch of personalities, so... More

I stayed here for just a short 10 hours - arriving late evening and leaving for an early flight. I absolutely loved it. The lowest point was a small and fairly spartan room (twin) but it wasn't a great issue, although if I'd been travelling with another person it might have been. Also the walls are thin - I could...

The approach to the hotel is very unremarkable however the moment one enters the lawns and experiences the vast valley with mountains in the backdrop.. look right and you have your own stupa and the Paro Dzong in the background and on your left a palace... you are left amazed and inspired to experince more.. Enter and you find your... More

My first glance of GPH through trip advisor wasn't very comforting. Add to it the point that my trip organizer (Heavenly Bhutan) was insistent that GPH will be a great choice. I finally yielded and I swear this was an awesome place to stay in Paro. Here are a few reasons you may also consider this hotel : 1) Awesome... More
