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 located in between neighboring buildings under construction or building. Loud noise from heavy machinery goes on till midnight. We had a front view room, facing construction right in front of us. So, curtains had to be shut at all times. Hot water was sufficient for one person only. Once we complained, they offered us a larger room facing the back, but also facing a building being built, with terribly loud noise until midnight!!! Street noise was loud, too. The hotel in general, and the rooms in particular, are run down. In fact, I dare write that the rooms were filthy. Bed linen was dirty and stained. Breakfast was significantly poor and not satisfying at all. The second room we received was freezing cold, so we asked for an extra heater. They brought one and plugged it in on an extension cord with another one, without realizing it was overloading the power cord, which heated to a dangerous state, resulting in that we had to disconnect one heater. I would never go there, even if it was for free!

Our agent has booked us (3 persons above age 60) on 6 and 7 October.The poor service started from the word go. We were given room on third floor with an excuse that a group is staying on other floors. They had no one other than a receptionist.we have to carry our own 4 luggage to third floor. Now new problem, the toilet in room had no lock from inside and no water except wash basin. With lot of argument,they changed our room to other one.we again shifted our luggage. We had informed them being Indian vegetarian,they should make 4 chapati.the cook informed us wheat flour is not available.with somehow prepared some food. They offered first floor room next day but we declined.The hotel is under renovation and there is shortage of staff in every section. Will not recommend this to anyone.please note that we got excellent service at our next stop Punakha showing excellent Bhutanese hospitality. Till our departure after 48 hours there old room was not repaired.

A comfortable stay and good service. It's very well located in the middle of town, great wifi and good food. Only big downside was the dogs barking through the night which meant a very poor night's sleep.

We stayed here for 6 nights in February 2020. Our room was not luxurious, but was sufficient to our needs, It included a minifridge, which was handy. Two 1/2 liter bottles of water were provided each day. Our room rate included breakfast, which was buffet syle some mornings (perhaps when the hotel has sufficient numbers of guests?), but otherwise was table service, with several options available. We found the staff attentive and helpful. We were given our own Go and Kira ( Bhutanese national dress for men and women, respectively) and staff members assisted us with getting everything adjusted just right.

I quite enjoyed my one evening in this lovely hotel and wish I was able to stay longer. Very kind, helpful reception staff who were friendly and welcoming. Breakfast and dinner had limited selections, but were very good. The room was charming and clean. The only negative was the very poor wifi which pretty much did not work in my room the entire time I was there.

I was back in town after a few years and it was kinda a hard to stay in a hotel after being in my own apartment but this place made it happen. The rooms on the third floor are 'old' style with large wooden planks, traditional (wonderful) beds and windows. Bathroom works, albeit rudimental, works perfect as well as wifi and electricity. Accessorised with refrigerator, tv and boiling water, excellent breakfast (sometimes slow) and lovely staff. The only risk to your sleep is if you end up here with a large group that is not yours... Located in the center, it's very easy to go everywhere and everyone in town would know where to find you...

This hotel is quite run-down. The scariest part are the electrical outlets - loose, worn-out. We were afraid of plugging anything in for fear of an electrical fire. Nothing special about this hotel. We were part of a tour group, so don't know the price, but we will recommend the company book a different hotel for the next group. The toaster at breakfast has seen better days.

The Pedling hotel is owned by a monastery. It is well located in the centre of Thimpu and is decent enough for a mid-range hotel. In common with many other hotels, the noise from stray dogs at night is irritating: you need earplugs. The rooms are reasonable, although there is no lift and there are a number of floors. The bathrooms are clean and, again, good enough, but the basin tap was loose and the shower curtain didn't reach far enough, resulting in a very wet floor; both these shouldn't need fixing. The food is adequate, albeit a bit average and the bar doesn't operate as a bar but as an adjunct to the dining room. A high spot is the Aru Spa, which was excellent in terms of the enviroment, the staff, the massages and the value.
