Reviewed 3 June 2018

During end of May 2018, I stayed in this hotel for 6 days.
this is located near Clock Tower ( City Centre). Main markets, main eating places are all around this. Sufficient parking and Amphitheatre close by.
Like common Bhutanese, staff of hotel is very nice and helpful.
Breakfast Buffet was average mix of veg and non veg.
Room was average with clean linen and clean bathrooms.My stay was very comfortable, only once in my 6 days stay hotel staff forgot to place towels and water in my room though room was cleaned.
Bathroom slippers were not provided by hotel.
overall great place.

Hotel is centrally located on the main street of Thimpu close to the clock tower and archery ground. We were three adults - the room was large and easily accomodated three beds and was as per expected standards. The highlight was the staff - particularly in the dining room - service was exceptionally good and always with a smile. They went out of their way to ensure we had good Indian vegetarian food available. A great experience overall.

Stayed for 3 nights with family and friends..next to clocktower, we may say that is in the heart of Thimpu. When your tour operator puts you back after a days tour by 5 pm you can roam around do some souvenir shopping. Have coffee and walk around. Much better hotels are around but a bit far off the city centre. Rooms are average, food manageable. It is only the location which gives a four star rating for this hotel.
