You stay here because it used to be a palace. We had a room on the third floor and practically needed crampons to get up the last stairs. Luckily they carry your bags up there for you! Our room was great and looked out over the valley. It was quite dim at night because they use those old eco friendly...

This was my third visit to this hotel and over the years , there have been additions to the property. The new dining area , overlooking the valley is a lovey place to enjoy your meals . The hot tub is a must try!

Firstly, this is not a luxury hotel. However, the rooms are large, have extensive furniture and complete amenities, as you would expect from any mid level hotel . You will also need a healthy pair of lungs if you stay on the third floor , as the stairs are steep and the going up gets tougher each floor . You...

The positives - the building has huge potential if renovated The negatives - the woman on reception was very unwelcoming. We got shown to our room, next to the hotel public toilets! The room smelt incredibly musty, the decor was very tired, the bed was lumpy and hard with old stained sheets, and the bath/shower had mould around the edges....

there is nothing modern and luxurious about this hotel, but as you are Bhutan you wouldn't really expect that. The building is old and a bit creaky and not warm at night but in my opinion that is part of the charm. There is a separate restaurant for breakfast and the also do evening meals. I wouldn't recommend the evening...

Lovely location, grand old architectural building but unkept. Small dark and musty rooms , bathrooms smelled of drains, jammed windows. This place has a lot of potential but needs work. Staff is friendly and service is good.

The estate is set in 15 acres of gardens & apple orchards where you could sit & enjoy panoramic views of Paro valley and the Paro Dzong & national museum, if you are lucky on a clear day you could see the Himalayan peaks👍 The rooms offer an authentic ambiance of medieval Bhutan, the toilet's are clean with fairly decent...

We loved our two nights at Gangtey Palace Hotel. The garden offers an outstanding view of Paro Dzong and Paro town, along with beautiful landscaping and flowers. The brand new restaurant provides the same views in a comfortable setting, with friendly staff and excellent food. We had a small room as all the larger ones were taken, but it was...

Really enjoyed the hotel. Great patio and view of Paro. Very good food as well. Rooms were rustic and comfortable. Has a good Bhutanese feel as opposed to a modern western style hotel. Staff was very helpful and close enough to Paro, you could walk into town.
