We stayed for 2 nights in Khang Residency and it was such a pleasant experience, starting from the ever smiling team at the reception to the kitchen staff and room service.

The room comes with heated floors, heated bathroom floors, a heated towel rack and all around hot water... bathtub included. We had our own stand alone room heater which we could switch on and off depending on our comfort. The balcony has sliding glass doors and a sliding mesh door, to either bring in the cold air or keep it out.

The room was spacious and warm. With the cold weather, slippers and heated towels were provided. Morning coffee from room service was not charged additionally until other hotels I've stayed in.

The kitchen service was like that of a home stay or even home. The food was cooked to our taste (considering the Bhutanese love their spice... and we didn't). If something in the menu was not available, they provided other options.

I would recommend Khang Residency as it truly resonates with Bhutan's culture of welcoming their guests.

We know Khang Residency now for more than 10 years. And we allways love to come back. The specious rooms and bathrooms are spotless and every little detail works absolutely great. This time we had the roof-top-apartments with the great kitchen, large sitting room and three bedrooms with individual bathrooms - just the right thing for this tour. What was new this time, was the café next to the lobby. Every morning we got freshly brewed cappuccino brought to our room by the friendly staff. We will be back next time.

Khang Residency in located in a lovely part of Thimpu and rooms offer beautiful views of the town. The ambience was lovely traditional and the hotel felt like a homely nest where everyone wished to assist guests. Staff certainly are the treasure of this hotel - they provide support 24/7, a coffee and tea awaits at reception upon return from a busy day and Dorji and her colleagues are the sincerest and dearest team members. We enjoyed our breakfast and dinner and the range of tasty meals provided was more than we expected and/or could eat. Compared with other hotels, including more expensive ones, Khang Residency stood out, specifically thanks to its care and the kindness of staff.

Room is spacious and comes with:
1. 2 bottles of complimentary mineral water
2. Instant coffee and tea
3. A Kettle
4. Shampoo, conditioner and 2 small bar of soap. No body wash.
5. Heated toilet tiles, heated towel rack, hot water and electric radiator. These made our stay comfortable in winter and dry our laundry.
6. An international power socket/plug.

Had dinner twice at its restaurant and find its food slightly too salty to our liking but portion is generous. Breakfast is really nice with many options of cereal, eggs, fruits, bread etc.

Quiet surrounding even though can hear dog barking at night (which is common and doesn't really affect my sleep though) but hotel do provide complimentary ear plugs if required.

Wifi works perfectly. Not near to Thimphu Town.
We want to thank the friendly staff for helping us wear our Gho and Kira too!
Totally recommend this hotel due to its quiet surroundings and awesome service staff!!

Staff are kind and very helpful. Rooms are well kept, comfortable and very clean. The selection of Bhutan-based books for sale in the lobby (and some to read in the room) is also a thoughtful touch. The hotel restaurant is good, but even better is the Indian-based grill restaurant next door to Khang Residency.

Superb hotel with exceptional rooms with a kitchenette and superb staff

The Reception Front desk staff Dorji, Tandin and Rohit were exceptional. Rohit a young boy was so polite and helpful that it really made our stay a pleasure

The food was nice and they went out of their way to provide Jain food which is never easy away from Indian sub continent. Special mention for Mon, Sonam, Wangmo, Peña, Yeshey and Kumbu.

Very nice hotel and will definitely return. A 3 star hotel with 5 Star service

The friendliest place one can start a holiday. Quaint, personal, quiet and very very private. Superb. The only minor hitch being communication. Not very fluent in english. Speak slowly, for them to understand what you need. Once done, everything is EXCELLENT

What a great hotel and staff, one night here was all our program allowed but the stay was brilliant and we would definitely stay again. Staff were friendly and accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. Accommodation was perfect and warm on what had turned out to be a cold day. I reckon this hotel beats many in cities worldwide.

This was an excellent hotel with quiet rooms overlooking the city. The staff was attentive and helpful, the heated floors made it a joy particularly in the winter months. It had all of the amenities of a five star New York hotel at a very resonable price. The liabilities were that you exchanged the quiet for being quite a bit away from the main part of town but that was also an asset. The food was adequate but not great so I would eat out rather than at the hotel.

I watched the hotel being built during previous visits, and had dinner here before too, so this was the first chance to stay in it. Beautiful rooms, with v modern shower/bathroom. The underfloor heating was the winner though - there is nothing worse than cold feet, especially when winter is approaching. The hotel is up the hill a bit from the central part of Thimphu, the south facing rooms have excellent views over the city (my room faced south and east). The hotel does echo quite a lot though - I was on the top floor, yet I could hear guests talking noisily in the reception area - which is not so nice at 5am! Same goes for guests slamming room doors all hours - so inconsiderate and really uncalled for.

I've complained about breakfasts in my other reviews of Bhutan hotels before now. I'll add Khang to the list. If tourists are in the hotel, its a fairly minimalist buffet, and not very appetising either. When I mentioned this to my host, they did ask the hotel if I could select from the menu (I had asked and was told buffet only), to which they got a curt question about why I couldn't eat the buffet. The following day I was offered the menu instead, and could at last choose oat porridge (rather than corn flakes drowned in sugar), a fresh omelette (rather than a dried out rubberised egg thing), etc. This attitude by Khang's restaurant is really not acceptable, not at the room prices regular guests have to pay. I'm disappointed in my 15 years of visiting Bhutan that catering and service standards in hotels are going down so much - first time visitors will have a very poor impression.

The (free) hotel Internet actually worked - I was quite surprised going by the standard you see at most other hotels in Bhutan. Not very fast though, so a 4G data card was much more useful (and is what I'd recommend). You get what you pay for.

Would I come back? Most definitely. The hotel is very handy as it is just around the corner from RUB Vice-Chancellor's Building and a few of the other organisations I assist at. And the location is quiet, away from the noisy centre of Thimphu. Which meant good sleeps. And the high floor meant great views! I just will have to work out how to avoid the restaurant.
