I was in Phuntshopelri as part of my Bhutan tour. A slight hiccup regarding rooms was soon sorted, and I was given Room 204. There is plenty of light and a corner room. Since the hotel is in the middle of town, the views were mainly street views, which was nevertheless very interesting. The hotel could do with a bit of refurbishment, especially the floors in the room. But the room itself was spotless , odour free, and had everything I needed. A special note to mention that they had provided a universal adapter, which made charging my devices very easy. A big shout out to the restaurant staff, Tshering Choden, Kinzang Norbu, Tshewang Rinchen, Choki Wangmo Extremely courteous, always smiling and able to help me with special requests. My package included breakfast and dinner, and I loved it. Tshering Choden actually went out of her way to ensure I got the wine I wanted the last evening. Totally loved the experience.

I loved staying in this hotel at the start of our trip in Bhutan and then we had lunch there on our return. The highlight for me was the amazing service and friendliness of the Food and Beverage girls who looked after us so well. Thank you Yangden, Jeena Rai, Tshering Dechen and Choki Wangmo for making our time in the hotel so very special and memorable!

The staff is lovely! I especially enjoyed my meals. The staff in the restaurant (Yangdon, Jaena Rai, Tshoring Dechen and Choki Wangmo) all showed a special balance of friendly and respectful. I felt very well taken care of :). The hotel is simple and clean. A little noisy but this dies down around 11 pm. It is very central so you can walk to the memorial and take in the bustling commercial activity on the way.

We visited Bhutan in June 2019 and spent 8 amazing days. We opted a travel agent karma kaka for jamgoen phuntsho adventures. He has been fantastic from beginner to end. We received prompt answers to all email inquiries before the trip. He was a nice guy and knowledgeable. Which of course we enjoyed and appreciated. Driver Tshering parop was also excellent we felt very safe all the time. We also used the assistance of jamgoen phuntsho adventures to do visa applications. We had a great time and therefore i can highly recommend the service of jamgoen phuntsho adventures.

This was our first exposure to a hotel in Bhutan. The entrance to the hotel was not so great and the frontage was not impressive. Once you enter the main foyer, the impression changes. An ornate reception desk, vast waiting area, wonderful hosts and caring staff, makes a lot of difference. Our group of 71 people with average age of 55 were to stay here for a night. The rooms are spacious and well furnished. We went in early Dec and rooms were kept comfortably warm by electric heaters. There were extra blankets available in the room. Visited the standard set of popular attractions in the afternoon. By about 5:30 we were back in the hotel. In the evening after our discourse meeting, most of us made it to the main road market for exploration and shopping. We were told that the Thimphu market is expensive compared to Paro and Punakha. Returned to Hotel and hit the bed since we had been up from very early morning. Got up early to get ready for the morning discourse meeting and checking out. The hotel management must have got a culture shock, since all the 70 tourists got up early and had their bath. For the first time in my experience, cold water ran dry, leaving only boiling hot water running in the taps. Things got corrected in some time, but there was a slight delay in our programmes. The breakfast spread was tweaked to our group's requirements. Enjoyed a nice hot breakfast. The luggage handling during Check in and check out were handled efficiently and professionally by a set of girls. Wonderful crew.

We went on a group Tour to Bhutan and stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. Hotel location is good. People are very polite and caring. Hotel rooms are ok. Paro and Phunakha hotels were much better. Very near to shopping places, that is one advantage of the location of this hotel.

Stayed for two nights at Hotel Phuntsho Pelri. Thimpu Bhutan Tel 975-2-334970/71/72 email hotelpp1@gmail.com .. Hotel location is great just on the edge of the marketplace. Whole place may be travelled by walk to have the feel of local vegetable market, local shops,Bhutan handicraft market is also in walkable distance on main road. The hotel lobby is quite spacious you need climb stairs from main glass door to reach check-in counter. Ground floor houses spa . Salon . Souvenir outlets. Nice restaurant 1st floor but order need to be provided well in advance as after order food is mode fresh and it may take 35 to 45 minutes .. Kewa datsi must ( potato with cheese) special Bhutan dish . Also try cheese momo Bhutan type . Veg fried rice not to forget veg chownmen with vegetable Haun. Chili chicken ordered but not recommended as quantity and size looks pretty less !!! If like to try red rice . But we have not tried it . Bar is well maintained if you like to indulge in fine wines ( though not tried) but most of the guests were trying wines .. Our bill for two dinner nights was very moderate i.e. Nu 600 & Nu 738 .. All bills are settled during checkout. Hassle free check-in and checkout. Hotel staff very courteous and helpful. Rooms are slightly smaller for three adults but manageable with given tariff plan . Trip is memorable .. Most of The credit card or debit cards are not working in Bhutan and Nepal . Read the instruction on back side of the card issued by Indian banks only world card shall work in Bhutan and Nepal. Must visit golden bhudha.. and Thimpu and Takin reserve and little Bhutan in Thimpu ..
