“Good Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2012

Stayed for a night at the Druk Hotel in Thimphu on our way to Punakha . Very nice hotel right in the center of Thimphu overlooking the clock tower. The deluxe renovated rooms were really good and the food was also up to the mark.

great location, professional service, good level of English, excellent food (à la carte).
rooms - better ask for deluxe room : nicer, biger ad cosier
avoid the buffet dinner, it is nothing special. whereas i would suggest è la carte menu. they have excellent choice of bhutanese and indian food. usually if you have "all inclusive package" à la carte is included (bu check first!)

Room Tip: deluxe rooms or suite are excellent

Druk Hotel has excellent location at Clock Tower Square, the epicenter of Thimphu, close to everything. The recently renovated rooms are beautiful and have every amenity, though the older rooms are pretty good as well. Hotel can now compete with Taj Tashi, but at fraction of the price. Staff are friendly, efficient and helpful. Breakfast could be better, (more options, nicer presentation) though is adequate and there is plenty to eat. Because of ongoing renovation there is some noise during the day, but not at night and fitness center and bar not open during renovation. I visit Thimphu 3-4 times per year, and this is my first choice for accommodation.

The hotel is being renovated, and the newly appointed rooms are delightful, perhaps even dramatic. Others in our group got older rooms and were not as pleased as we were. A sign on our large windows warned us not to open them because of the bees' nest outside. (It was huge!) Bhutan is a Buddhist country, after all, and all living things deserve respect. Part of the charm. The hotel is on the city square, with dozens of shops nearby for both tourists and townspeople; a perfect location.

Room Tip: Be sure to get a renovated room facing the square.

After a week in Bhutan where we 'calibrated' our expectations for hotels to the point where a decent meal and hot water were a welcome treat, we came upon the Druk. Hallelujah! How is it that this hotel is only rated #4 in Thimphu? Not for long, we bet! The 35 refurbished rooms (red, gold and green) are all the same 'except for the color'. Ours was green and it was fantastic. We had a claw foot tub, separate shower, terrific bed and pillows, hardwood floors, large flat screen TV, wifi throughout the hotel with good bandwidth, and a view of the clock tower. Very chic. Another review said that the restaurant was just 'average' but we beg to differ. There was a wide range of choices from Bhutanese, Cantonese, Indian and Continental, and all was made to order a la carte. We had wonderful made-to-order won ton soup and momos for a snack. Now for the potential complaints: The bar was closed for renos when we visited (too bad), but we could order alcohol in the restaurant and were allowed to take the rest of our bottle to our room. Another review complained about the dogs barking at night, but having stayed elsewhere in Thimphu, this cannot be avoided. (The Bhutanese apparently believe that dogs see and protect against evil spirits so a large number of stray dogs are found throughout the city). The most appreciated asset at the Druk was the customer service and smiles throughout the hotel...sad to say, that is a rare thing in Thimphu, but not here. Its central location is a real boon. We highly recommend the Druk and wish we had found it earlier in our trip. (See my separate review of the Namgay Heritage Hotel).

Room Tip: Definitely choose one of the refurbished rooms, ideally facing the clock tower. A few of the corner...
