R. Penjor Lodge
Ranked #15 of 30 Thimphu B&B and Inns
Reviewed 6 March 2011

The room is clean and painted in traditional, charming Bhutanese colours and motifs and the basic amenities are there - hot tap water, clean sheets, and has a nice, trendy restaurant cafe below, where the crowd seems a good mix of locals, expatriates and international travellers. As a lodge, it's probably good value for money, cool enough if you're on a budget, and it has a great location - it's along the main capital street near the bus terminal and eating places, and, thank God for the complimentary Wifi!

Reviewed 24 November 2010

We checked in and checked several rooms before deciding to stay elsewhere. The rooms are very basic (backpacker style), not well maintained, not very clean, and with problems (water didn't work in one and when they tried to fix the floor was flooded - the curtains were to short so couldn't close properly.). There's a coffee shop on the ground floor (Ambient cafe I think) which is worth visiting.

The hotel seems to be an afterthought - not well managed with very little effort made to even provide minimum comfort).

You can do much better in Thimphu so I suggest you stay away from this place.
