Review of Gakyil
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 21 Mar 2023
The hotel is in the heart of Thimpu city and close to clock tower which is the center of attraction in thimpu, its a happening place, there were programs held every evening at the clock tower like singing and dancing a very enjoyable place, you can also watch programs from this hotel rooms on the 5th floor, the hotel staff were very courteous and always greeting with smile and restaurant staff were also good, they had chef from Calcutta who was efficient in preparing indian style food which was very good in taste, there are lots of hotels and store and shopping in the walking distance from this hotel, the rooms are also good and specious, we enjoyed our stay very much.
Date of stay: February 2023
Room Tip: Best location hotel with excellent food and very courteous staff.

The hotel is located right next to Clock Tower and one can get great views of the mountains from the rooms on the top floor. Amenities need to improve a lot though. We faced a power cut for one hour in the night and one morning something as basic as bread was not replenished in the breakfast buffet.

I am still giving 4 stars because we visited within one month of reopening and it must have been very difficult to offer the expected standard of service.

We were group of 3 couples stayed @ gaykil from 14 feb to 18 feb 2020. It was wonderful experience at gaykil right from check in to check out. It is located right at heart of thimpu city and steps away from clock tower.

Most courthouse staff, delicious food and good amenities. You make a request for anything and its right there on ur doorstep next minute. They helped us with transport as well as fine tuned our itenry with their experience.

Thanks a lot for the memories guys@gaykil and special thnx to Ms Rachel for providing all necessary info even before our trip started. Keep up the good work.
