Just situated at the bank of the river this hotel offers a great view! We were a big family of 26 and had a pleasant stay! The quality of the rooms could be a little better and looks like a renovation has been long pending. The breakfast was out of the world (Bhutan standards) great variety of meat, cereals and... More

This is situated far from Punakha city centre, offers a great view. The facilities are very basic and looks like an old property. The service really needs to be improved. Overall, a good place to stay for a night.

I think finding reasonable accommodation in town of Punakha is impossible! We checked into this hotel and for some odd reason, I decided to check the water in my bathroom! Water trickled out of the hand basin and the shower, which was just a rose on the wall (meaning water flowed all over the bathroom floor), was a joke! There... More

We stayed for 1 night in Damchen resort. No doubt location of the resort is very good. But thats it. Room is very basic and very small. You wont have place to keep your luggage also. We stayed in Dec end so it was pretty cold and heater was not efficient enough. Food is good and staff is polite.

As a part of the Travel package, we were recently put in this resort for a night. The heater was not working. It was very Chill. There were worms in the bed and carpets in the room which kept us awake through out the night. Though listed as 3 Star hotel, it has not even the basic facilities.

Damchen Resort sits in a stunning position on a river bank. Second visit - last in 2010 - and the room standards have slipped. Big rooms and all perfectly acceptable but the plumbing left a lot to be desired for some of my tour group, including myself. Once all thar was sorted out, it was OK. Pleasant staff and the... More

We have been booked into the Damchen Resort as part of a tour package (the usual deal here in Bhutan). Although listed as a 3-star hotel, it's pretty basic. We were able to shift from a large twin-bed room to a smaller (and warmer) double bed room, and although things have gone wrong (water failing, lights not working) it's adequate.... More

Frankly, we were disappointed with this hotel. WE had Room 102, which was clean and spacious enough but the bathroom was horrible - dark and airless. The bathroom backed on to the kitchen, and the air vent obviously exhausted into the kitchen so had been boarded up. The noise from the kitchen started at 4am. On the plus side, the... More

Like other reviewers this hotel is a let down from others in Bhutan. The location is good the food inoffensive and plentiful for main course, tasty soup to start while dessert was a poor tinned fruit salad. The rooms are a lottery. Some of my friends has large rooms with panoramic views overlooking the river, some had large rooms with... More
