Hotel Ro Chong Pel located just outside Thimphu where we had a great view of Thimphu River from our room.
Nothing fancy about the lobby, we had to walk through the restaurant to go to our room that located on another lever. Lobby on the ground floor, restaurant on the first floor and we had to go out of the restaurant and walked up a flight of stairs then reach the buildings that consist of rooms.
You cannot charge the hotel by the lobby. Boy, the room was huge! I think we were in a suite! There were two parts in the room. One was the living area where the flat screen TV, Two sofas and a heater located. Another part was the bedroom with comfortable queen size bed and the bathroom.
The entire unit was clean. There were total of three units of heaters in the room however we did not think they were powerful enough, perhaps it was too cold at night.
Bathroom was big and clean with enough amenities however there was no shower curtain over the bathtub. This made a mess every time we took our shower in the tub. The floor mat near the tub was not that good. It was slippery. Both Charlie and I slipped a few times but lucky enough not to fall on the ground.
I love the fact that the room consists of four large windows that gave us lots of sunlight and with the gorgeous view of the Thimphu River.
As this hotel was just opened in Jun2011, everything was new and in good conditions. However no Internet service in the entire hotel though. Making your own coffee and tea in the room was not possible because they did not provide coffee and tea making facility in the room. However when we had our coffee at the restaurant, it was complementary.
The hotel staffs were friendly and the food was excellent!
We would definitely be back to this hotel if they have more powerful heaters during wintertime.
