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 facilities are all modern and hot water for the bath can be enough. The hospitality of the staff for the guest is excellent. The breakfast buffet menu is little bit poor and fresh vegetable is little.

The Capital Hotel was a wonderful home-away-from-home during my trip to Thimphu! My room had an excellent view of the city, the every meal was delicious, and the staff was incredibly warm and helpful. We honestly could not have chosen a better place to stay during our visit. We received amazing care and hospitality! I definitely recommend staying here.

最近オープンした、とてもきれいで広い部屋のホテルです。部屋の照明は明るく仕事をするのに適しています。バスルームもとても快適で広く、お湯の出も十分です。エアコンは日本製で快適な温度を維持してくれます。ロケーションはとても良く、隣にスーパーマーケット、すぐ近くに両替のできる中央郵便局、ローカルの市場などがありティンプーでの快適な生活ができます。カンファレンスルームもあり、ビジネスユースとしても良いホテルです。ぜひ、次回も利用したいと思います。

This is a relatively new hotel in Sep 2023 but its service quality belies its age. The services, always delivered with a big genial smile and politeness, seem to go the extra mile to make your stay comfortable. The rooms are new and comfortable though might seem a bit pricey at first, but then all of Thimphu seems to be expensive. Location is ideal if you have work in Thimphu but would still prefer a quiet neighborhood. All in all well worth the value offered. A signing off appreciation for the courteous and friendly manager as well! All the best to you and the hotel.
