Although I am not going to go overboard on this hotel, it is a good hotel, but I think it was probably the least good place we stayed in in Bhutan. It is a Taj hotel so you would expect it to be good. I have stayed in a number of Taj places over the years and although the Tashi was nice it was not fabulous! We had a good room and a lovely bathroom, the laundry was done to the usual Taj high standard and the two restaurants were good, but it did lack something! Maybe it was because we were jet-lagged, maybe it is because we subsequently stayed in Amankora Hotels which were spectacular, but the Tashi was not a hotel which made me desperate to go back. The wireless internet in the rooms is so slow it is barely worth bothering. It is chargeable on the standard Taj Hotel tariff. Don't bother! THe two restaurants were good but employed a rather odd (??Fraudulent) charging policy. We were on a full board package but the restaurant got us to sign a bill on which the food price had been inflated by 50%. THe staff said not to bother about it because we were not paying, this was for the Travel Agency. THis may be the case but it didn't seem at all right, and we could see that the Swiss couple at the next table were having the same mystified conversation with the waiters! Anyway, the Bhutanese meal was good but not excellent (compared with Amankora & Uma Paro), but the Indian meal we had in the other restaurant was excellent. Very good breakfast, and outstanding coffee! Overall a good hotel, but not excellent.
