This hotel makes time travel possible as you are transported back to the early 19th century. There is an original temple within the building and the architecture is beautifully ornate, with painted beams and a steep stairway for extra security, as it is retractable to protect from marauding invaders! I felt privileged to stay there - in England it would...

Staff all lovely and very helpful. Beautiful old building and gardens full of character and magnificent. Fabulous potential for amazing pictures of grounds and Paro valley views. Room very nice, but lighting poor, (as with many hotels), and not much hot water in the evenings - only enough for a shower.

Two nights, at the end of our time in Bhutan, confirmed that we were right to choose the Gangtey Palace. Commanding a fabulous location overlooking the old town and the Dzong, the hotel provided us with a base to explore and a place to relax. The gardens were a treat; the hot stone bath a rather comic turn; the restaurant...

Hotel is comfortable and architecturally very interesting (feels like you are sleeping in a Dzong). Views from the hotel grounds are expansive. Newly built restaurant is comfortable and the food is typical Bhutanese. Overall an enjoyable place to stay while visiting this amazing country.

Our private tour agency suggested this hotel for a more traditional atmosphere. I really like the look and feel of this place. It has paintings and decoration of Bhutanese house but more grand. Our room was on the second floor and we were lucky that our room also had a living room with sofa (unfortunately we didn't have time to...

We stayed at the Gangtey Palace twice. Our first visit was when we flew into Paro (2 nights) and our second visit was our last night in Bhutan. If you are looking for a historic place to stay look no further. The grounds are spectacular! The rooms are spacious with wonderful views of the city. The staff was very accommodating...

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...
