location is beautiful, literally by the river. Went there for a coffee..staff is too lethargic and least interested. Went inside and told the staff that we need some coffee and were told someone will come to take the order. we waited for almost 45 min..nobody turned up. the staff there was busy fooling around amongst themselves. When we were leaving, the staff was standing there but did not even bother to greet or ask. if they cant come to take an order for a coffee...i wonder what will be the standard of service there...

It was my second time stay at damchen. This time we were party of 9 people with a 2 yo kid. We stayed there for two nights and booked 4semi deluxe river facing rooms on first floor. it costed us 2500/- per room per night. For the oval rooms they charge 3300/-. go for it if you can afford it. Hear is my observation. Location---One just cant find better located property in punakha. just beside river, you can sit all day and cherish the view. not outside the city, grocery shops and taxi stand nearby. ample of parking space is available. Rooms-- the rooms were comfortable but very small.with all modern amenities and good washroom it was fine. one could see and hear river by lying in bed both in day and night ( provided its full moon night ). i would still suggest oval rooms. they were three times in size with better view. Food-- we had dinner in there restaurant once found the food fine and a bit expansive. do not forget to order at least 2 hours before ( rule applies for whole of bhutan ) As there is not many options in tiny town of punakha, better you eat at hotel itself. Staff-- Like other places in bhutan, staff hear also as good, polite and eager to help. they changed and upgraded our room immediately when we complaint about showers in two rooms. check in and check out was smooth. wifi was fine. this is quite a busy property, do not forget to book in advance. happy travels

This hotel has a scenic setting. It's right on the river bank. And the approach is also easy. Rooms are spacious, you get an amazing view. The staff is courteous, service is really good. The only bad thing is that food taste is bad. We tried out a few things and none was good. I could even find threads in morning breakfast puri. If they can improve on their food, this will be a really amazing place to be

Damchen punakha is located right on the bank of punakha river with many rooms having River view. This is a beautiful property, as far as possible opt for a deluxe room in order to have a river view. Staff is courteous, breakfast was decent though options were few. Rooms were good and comfortable, only the food in the restaurant is kinda priced on the higer side. Apart from this the property is good and highly recommended!
