Galingkha is a clean, well located property right in the heart of Thimphu. It's nothing to blow your mind, but it's not a place you can complain about either. I wasn't expecting top of the line ambience or 5-star service standards - for the price, it's very decent value. The rooms are fairly large, comfortable and clean. My room (401) had mostly everything you'd require and a great view of the street below and mountains in the distance. Room service was fairly quick, the food I ordered was definitely decent (again, nothing to rave about, but good), and the hotel was quiet and allowed me decent sleep.
All in all, I'd recommend it to travellers looking for a no-nonsense, clean, value for money hotel, that doesn't necessarily 'delight' them - but which doesn't give opportunities for complaints either. It hasn't got the 'character' of a boutique hotel, but its functional, clean and good value for money, apart from being well located.
