Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The hotel is near the centre of Thimphu. It's a thoroughly modern hotel. The rooms are large and well equipped. I'm not sure which grade rooms we had as we were on a guided tour and so didn't do the booking. When we were there it was very cold for those two nights and we were provided with an electric heater for the room. Unfortunately our large room was on a corner with two external walls full of glass and very high ceilings - the heater couldn't really manage to keep us warm. We had extra duvets too and only just managed to keep warm in bed. Other people in our group managed to be warm enough in their rooms but ours (504) was definitely cold. That aside, the food was good and the location OK.

Our stay at City Hotel can only be described as delightful. The rooms are very spacious, clean, and high quality. The staff is extremely helpful and courteous. We were three of us, but the arrangements for the extra person were all taken care of even before we landed in the hotel. That location of the hotel is really good as it’s in the middle of Thimpu’s shopping area. Overall, recommend the hotel for a family stay.

Very centrally located hotel and accessible to all tourist spots. A very friendly front desk staff. Good rooms and a very good Wi-Fi. This 3 star hotel but as per my travel agent Nature Wing it is a 4 star hotel. Food is excellent and the service is superb. Actually they were the first ones who offered us Bhutanese dish Ema Datshi. Apart from the Bhutanese fish, Indian and Continental food was also available. Ema Datdhi is made from chillis and cheese. The Kitchen staff need special mention for taking care of the interests of each guest.

My wife and I are spending 5 months in Bhutan as part of an academic exchange program. Consequently, we have some experience living and traveling in this beautiful country. We recently spent a few days in Thimphu, Bhutan’s capital city. City Hotel provided the comfort, privacy, convenience, and professional service we need at a modest (by Western standards) price. The room was spacious, nicely furnished, and quiet. The restaurant was pleasant and the food delicious, with its “spiciness” calibrated to Western tastes. And in every interaction with hotel staff, we were treated with the greatest respect and appreciation.

The hotel rooms on the top floor have high ceiling and provide a grandeur feeling. The hotel staff is more than cordial and nice. The food was great with options in veg and non-veg and way too cheap in comparison to a hotel of that status. A must place to stay in Thimpu.
