Gangtey used to belong to the Penlop (governor) of Paro, but has been hotel for many years. It's quaint and charming, but super comfortable and friendly with excellent staff and service. Great location just overlooking Paro, easy walk into town. Has one of the few altar rooms in Bhutan where photographs permitted. Massage and hot stone bath (recommended) available.

Stayed here in September 2014, the palace has a great view and feel to it. Although the restaurant timings are a little weird they close early and have very less food available apparently because the cook is not ready to make a few things half the time. The staff was polite. The rooms were very beautiful and had a traditional... More

We stayed here our first night in Bhutan. We had two rooms that were decorated with beautiful Tibetan and Bhutanese rugs, furniture and artifacts. The porters were all women and they amazed us with how quickly they lugged our huge suitcases up very narrow stairs. Our beds were really comfortable and we slept well. Our rooms were both really quiet... More

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
