We stayed for 2 nights at Gangtey palace. The hotel has some great views and offers you the traditional feel of Bhutan A must stay hotel at Paro and total value for money. The food was customised to our taste and we enjoyed having breakfast in the open area

Worth taking the bigger rooms. Nice interior (ethnic style), friendly staff, good food ( for Bhutanese standards) and a magnificent view on Paro Dzong and Paro town. The new restaurant which is being built will have a unique position and view, as well.

When entering Gangtey Palace you will find yourself in a historic and authentic setting. Beautiful architecture and wall paintings give this place a charm that's hard to beat. Views from the hotel are excellent with snowy mountain tops on the horizon and the Paro Valley stretching out in front of you. But there hasn't been a lot of development in... More

The Gangtey Place Hotel is a peaceful and lovely traditional Bhutanese hotel. You can enjoy your breakfast from the tarrace of the restaurant with the panoramic view of a vaporous Paro valley in a foggy morning. From there you can also enjoy your dinner and view another beautiful Paro valley with colourful lights especially the Paro Dzong Fortress and the... More

The Gangtey Palace hotel is a lovely old main building with several rooms in the surrounding layers. The prayer room is a special feature that should be visited. They offer traditional stone baths that are a wonderful treat after climbing to Tigers Nest. The restaurant serves good food and a new restaurant is being built with a perfect view of... More

This hotel is lovely to look at with an outstanding view and cordial staff. The drawback was the four flights of stairs we had to walk up and down in order to get to our room. If you like beds that are hard as a rock, this hotel is for you. The suites were spacious. The bathroom was ancient. The... More

The most unique of our Bhutan stay, this governor's palace converted into a quaint hotel is a good example of accessing some authentic stay experience. We stayed in Two different rooms and liked the suite room much better. The hotel offers clean basic stay, for it's price, it is a good deal. They have an excellent bar (Masala Peanuts with... More

Gangtey Palace is situated on a few lovely acres on top of a hill with an unrestricted views of Paro town and the magnificent Paro Dzong Monastery directly across the valley. It is probably the most atmospheric hotel I have every stayed in. You feel like you are on the film set of one of those historic Chinese dramas set... More

I stayed there with my family on Dec 23rd and 24th 2013. It was really a great place to stay. Its a quiet and peaceful place. The rooms are really big, but they had only one room heater, which couldn't make the room warm. They had wi-fi facility, but it was not that good. The rooms were neat and clean.... More

Go for the deluxe room - for a little extra money over standard, the room is four times as large and indefinitely grander, indeed like a palace. The only downside of deluxe is there's so much space that even two heaters cannot heat up the room enough in winter, but with warm blanket and hot shower, overall it's still fine... More
