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 Norpheling hotel is a small and intimate hotel, with a stylish design décor with a personal note. The architecture, fittings, and interior design are unique and upscale. Rooms are tad tiny. Located in a lively, high-end residential neighborhood. Trendy and locally sourced authentic cuisine. Some dishes could have been prepared better ! Exceptional, genuine & highly personalized service. Tiny, funky & offbeat garden to relax. They welcomed us with a sense of intimacy. The parking bay is small but adequate. But they do lack some amenities, and there is no good access to public transportation.

They have possibly one of the best price-quality ratio in the country. The staff is so charming and helpful, from the General Manager to the reception (Karma, Tschewang, etc) and Sumit and all the employees in the restaurant. Special mention to the housekeeping ladies that helped us to get dressed with the gho and Kira for the Thimphu Tsechu. The food was very good both the breakfast and dinners. The room was so spacious with a massive and confortable king size bed, and perfect bathroom with good shower. Also very well noise isolated. This hotel has all you could need! and was the best one during our trip around Bhutan.

I want to start by saying that the staff of this hotel conducts themselves at a 5 star level. From the moment I arrived to the moment I left after a 6 day stay. Their brand of boutique hotel is based in family and because of this the thoughtfulness shines through. You feel like you are staying in the hospitality of family with all of the privacy required for any type of stay. Their rooms are very modern with all of the modern offerings you could need. The hotel room furnishings have that new and fresh feel and the bathrooms are stylish/sturdy. The location is perfect being that the Bank of Bhutan is literally 100 ft across the way. Perfect for exchanging currency and other international banking needs. They offer in room dining but I would recommend the service of their beautiful 8 table restaurant right in the hotel. Delicious food/recipes from all over the world. You name it they’ve got it. Their continental breakfast buffet was perfect in every way. The restaurant also has a 6 stool bar f you just need to grab a nightcap. There is a beautiful garden of fresh veggies and fruits, which are often served in your meals. There is a meditation gazebo outdoor dining tables as well as a fire pit. It’s location is about 10 mins from the busy street of Thimphu and it is a very quiet location. As found in the country of Bhutan, the local streets near the hotel offer general stores/restaurants every other door. There is a delicious bakery right down the street. I have to round out this review to say that again the hotel service and their attention to detail was top notch. I left feeling embraced by the culture of Bhutan and its beautiful approach to service to others. A special thank you to Sumit and the rest of the Hotel Norpheling staff. You made my stay memorable and refreshing.

Family hotel with a lovely garden. My stay was very cosy, the personnel very understanding and helpful. The food is so nice and the owner is very kind and lovely. I spent a very good time and enjoyed my stay during my time in Thimphu. It really felt being part of a family.

I came to Bhutan for 2 weeks for my work but I chance to bring my mum as well. I had to stay a different hotel for the first week and my mum with this hotel. She loved it so much that we decided to stay together at the norpheling hotel. And I must say, I agree with her. The personel and the manager are very lovely and there for your needs and the hotel was close by to my work that it was easy to access. The rooms and food were great as well! I thoroughly reccomend staying here if you are traveling to Thimphu and especially if you have work with the super fab lab :)

I'd been to Hotel Norpheling once before, but it was a sponsored trip and so I wasn't sure if I was getting the "real" experience. But Hotel Norpheling is amazing! The hotel is small, but very well equipped. The manager, Chimi, wants the place to feel cozy, where you get to know the people who work there. And it shows. People are friendly and you aren't treated like just a random face. The food from the restaurant is delicious, and a great way to get a taste of local cuisine (and yes, they will make it less spicy, if you are worried.) Many ingredients come from the garden behind the hotel as well! The rooms are well equipped, clean, and modern while still having a beautiful local feel. This time I had a larger room than last time, but frankly both were just wonderfully comfortable and cozy. This one had a bit more room to sit around with friends, but I loved both. Chimi and the rest of the staff are invested in you having a great time. They will give you tips of places to go shopping, help you make reservations, and make sure you are getting a good taxi fare! I actually went with Chimi to a local traditional restaurant. It was fantastic, and above and beyond any duty she had as a manager. Speaking of above and beyond: when I suddenly found out I'd be giving a speech at a Bhutanese institution, they all got together to help me get properly dressed in traditional clothing! So if you want a quiet, beautiful, comfortable place in Thimphu that also won't break the bank, Norpheling is a great choice!
