Pedling was undergoing renovations when I stayed there and is looking great - clean, modern, and comfortable. The food was excellent in the restaurant in the basement, and overall it was a great value.
Unfortunately, the management was not honest with me when I repeatedly confirmed that there would be internet, and later refused to own up to it. I was really hoping this would be my go-to place when in Thimphu, but as I need internet for work and I can't trust their word prior to check-in that it will be provided, I can't take the risk.
As others have mentioned, the shower is set up in such a way that you have to get into the tub and stand under the shower head when turning on the water, thus guaranteeing being soaked by cold water. Also, there is a "lip" on some of the steps in the stairway which caused me to trip and bruise myself on the hard marble. That may be what caused others to trip as well.
