The hotel staff is very well behaved and nice. They will always try to accommodate all requests. One of the best hotels in Thimpu.

My room is very spacious and it includes all the modern facilities such as Hairdryer, Safe, 24 hours hot water, Room Heater, 43-inch LCD TV, Good wifi Connection.

The room is also very neat and clean. The view from the room is superb. Totally recommend this hotel to my friends and family.

The City Hotel in Thimphu was an excellent location and had very comfortable rooms and amenities. I would certainly recommend it as a moderately priced hotel alternative in this Bhutan city. The beds were comfortable, the meals provided were quite good and location was an additional plus. If you plan your trip right you can schedule two nights in Thimphu before spending the next two nights in Paro if you are on a four-day tour.

The hotel is charming from the outside and the rooms are large and have lots of light. The constrution must have been done on the cheap side as the structure has thin walls and the windows don't quite fit together to close. The furniture was cheaply made and the worse for wear. And of course in all of Bhutan, you have to deal with the incessant, barking dogs all night, so bring ear plugs and put a white noise app on your tablet or cell phone. The restaurant food was fine, not exceptional, and the staff was nice. They did have espresso in the morning for an extra cost, which was a welcome treat. Thimphu is a nice town and very easy and pleasant to walk around in. There is an excellent craft market there.

Room tip: Take ear plugs and put a white noise app on your device. Dogs in Bhutan bark all night and sleep all day!

Dear Sandy,
Thank you for taking time to share your experience on your stay with us at City Hotel Thimphu, we would like to clarify that in Bhutan like all other countries, we have to follow construction rules and regulations and have to abide by it strictly, therefore the external walls of the building are of 250 mm as per the approved standard. We understand your concerns on the timber window frame where it must have been difficult to fit and close the windows properly in few rooms, lack of proper timber processing facilities in Bhutan and the extreme weather conditions attribute to this problem and we have been continuously checking and repairing in the rooms. The furniture in our hotel is all locally made since we really believe in promoting local enterprise and business, this is the first time any guest has complained on the furniture, in fact we have had many upcoming hotels visit our property to see the furniture and they have even sourced from the same supplier that have supplied to our hotel since they consider it to be of good quality especially in our local standard.
With regard to the disturbance caused by the barking dogs, like you rightly mentioned this is the problem faced by not just Thimphu town but the whole of Bhutan.
Overall we are happy to know that you had a pleasant stay. Thank you.

Room was a bit expensive costing about 5500 INR for a night for 3 people whereas the other places were albeit cheaper. However, the room was a delight to be in as it was cozy and comfortable and they had put a seperate bed in the room for the third person instead of placing a mattress on the floor like the others.
