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.

Simply an amazing property, very comfortable and above all amazing hospitality with staff, they really go above and beyond and extend Bhutanese simplicity and hospitality. The lady who owned the place was at reception and made sure we got our beverages/hot water and coffee-- and arrange for all the foods we preferred and likes. I was in Bhutan for hiking and I do plan to go back soon, and ofc hotel Lhayul will be my preferred place to stay

This was my first trip to Bhutan. Everything about this country does not disappoint. A beautiful drive from Paro airport to Thimpu and then a wonderful reception at this hotel. The staff are courteous and super friendly. The rooms are spacious and very well appointed. There was plenty of hot water in the bathroom , which is a must as Bhutan is cold. Food and service in the restaurant is simply first class. An altogether memorable stay. The hotel.is situated in a newer part of the city but is only a few minutes drive away from the city centre and many tourists destinations.

The delicious food served at the hotel's restaurant exceeded my expectations. The culinary delights offered showcased the local flavors of Bhutan, and each meal was a delightful experience. The chefs truly know how to create a culinary journey that leaves a lasting impression. I must also commend the administrative staff for their excellent cooperation. They were helpful in addressing any queries I had, ensuring a smooth and enjoyable stay. Their professionalism and willingness to assist added to the overall positive atmosphere of the hotel. The rooms at Hotel Lhayul were spacious, providing a comfortable retreat after a day of exploring Thimphu. The well-designed accommodations contributed to a restful night's sleep, and the amenities provided enhanced the overall experience. I wholeheartedly recommend Hotel Lhayul to anyone planning to visit Bhutan. The combination of excellent staff, delicious food, cooperative administration, and comfortable rooms make it a standout choice for accommodation in Thimphu. I look forward to returning on my next trip to Bhutan.

You can’t go wrong with this hotel. It’s impeccably clean, the beds are very comfortable, lots of hot water, and the most delicious food in Bhutan! The staff there is not just helpful but they are kind in a way that you don’t get most places. It’s a genuine caring. I went on an organized tour and this hotel was booked for me by the tour operator. But it was a great place to stay!
