About
Description
Situated within the heart of the Thimphu valley but just off the main road, Osel is a 35 room 4 star property. We are proud to feature among the largest in-class rooms and be among the only few properties ...More within the city limits to still have amazing views. Views include the Tashicho Dzong as well as the seated Buddha, all of this is in addition to the ever present glorious mountains that adorn all of Bhutan. Less
