We stayed here 2 nights while on tour in Bhutan. Our room was on the 4th floor (no elevator) and after hiking to the Tiger's Nest our legs were sore to be climbing stairs. Rooms were nice and clean. Location is great- lots within easy walking distance. We ate breakfast and dinner here and the food was always good. We had laundry done and it was a little on the expensive side. Shower was lovely. Wifi in the rooms. Only downside and its not a fault of the hotel but the dogs in Thimphu are insanely loud. In all my travels it was the worst here. Bring some ear plugs and you'll be fine!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to the restored and redefined Hotel Galingkha. Situated literally in the heart and junction of what is the burgeoning capital of Bhutan in Thimphu, the hotel is one of the oldest in the kingdom. When the capital was first planned and developed, the area in which Hotel Galingkha is located was literally Ground Zero. This area is as much the beginning of what is today a rapidly growing capital of 90,000 inhabitants as it was when the area was nothing but rural houses and rice fields. Change is imminent and the agrarian life and its accompanying tools and symbols have led way to a vibrant and commercial hub that breathes life into the rest of Bhutan. Today Thimphu is not just the face of a changing Bhutan but also the face of a kingdom that wants to transform in its own image. And this is where Hotel Galingkha takes pride in being one of the faces of a changing Bhutan. The hotel has been restored maintaining a delicate and fine balance between the traditional Bhutanese architecture and practical modern amenities to keep provide our clients with the comforts of a home, the caring services and atmosphere of a family and a vantage location to explore the main streets, bars, restaurants, handicrafts and the colorful nooks and corners of Thimphu. ... more less
