We stayed in this place during an impromptu stay in Bumthag. Our original plan was to drive up to Trashigang but we realized that given the road conditions, we can't make it to Trashigang. We removed Trashigang from our itinerary and thus Bumthang became of place to stay. The place is very close to the Dzong. Actually one can walk... More

very pretty looking with average sized cozy rooms and small bathrooms. heating in a place like bhumtang essential and this place got that right. restaurant had very courteous staff and excellent food especially their coffee and buck wheat pancakes. The only thimg they need to do away with is the paid wifi. Too expensive @200 rupees a gadget.

This is a very special place. Cleverly designed, the Jakar Village Lodge butts up against a 'real' village and is absolutely delightful. The rooms are chalet style, traditionally and tastefully furnished, with a large comfortable bed, super soft pillows and a real down duvet. All the beds in Bhutan have been good but this is a cosy, comfy sleep fest.... More

This place is akin to a homestay or a Lodge. The forever dependable and friendly staff is there to oblige their guests. Whenever they are not too busy, they would go to the guests and chat with them. The reception, the common area and the dining room is located on the first floor, which is consistent with Bhutanese architecture, where... More

A nice place to stay while you are traveling in Bhutan. Clean and welcoming rooms, restaurant and lobby. A nice feature of breakfast is that they will make eggs to your order. Many steps to climb to your room, lobby and restaurant but that what gives it so much charm. Stayed 2 nights.

One gal who works in the dining room was particularity sweet. My room had a king size bed, comfy thick quilt. It... More

The rooms were large and had a little alcove with a swing. Too cold in December to use it but a nice idea, with a view over the valley. Again the electric heater was the only heat in the room. Worked ok. The shower was very elaborate so many options that it took a long time to figure out how... More

We were impressed that all these 3 star hotels have very comfortable good quality beds with good pillows and comforters. It got pretty cold in the evenings. The owners are great cooks too, so we enjoyed our meals there. Since it's located in the residential area, it's nice and quiet.

This is a small hotel below the impressive Dzong, overlooking some nice fields. Dinner and breakfast at the hotel were the best during our 7 day trip in Bhutan, and included buckwheat pancakes, the specialty in Bumthang (do try them)!. The hotel also offers freshly ground coffee, which was a treat, and tea around a traditional stove (not quite a... More
