The hotel is centrally located and neat. But it is very noisy in the night. We got a road facing room and it was terribly noisy. People screaming to 2 am. Dogs barking till 3 am. If you open the windows the hotel staff ask you to close because it's windy and windows can break.

Centrally located near clock tower, restaurants, convenience stores and shopping area. Small compact rooms, good service, decent food. However water supply was erratic...maybe this was the case in all of Thimphu.

Dear APPMum, Thank you for your review of Gakyil, we were happy to be your choice in Thimphu.

We do hope you visit Bhutan and Gakyil again. Regards
