In operation since 1985 the Druk hotel is one of Thimphu's oldest hotels. However the the hotel has recently been renovated and bills itself as being a four star hotel. The recent renovation is designed to give the hotel a modern "uncluttered" look. Each floor uses a slightly different palette of colors "inspired from the earth sky and fire".
Since it's one of the older hotels, it has the distinction of being is what is arguably the best location in Thimphu for shopping, restaurants and entertainment. the hotel is located right on clock tower square which numerous shops and restaurants nearby. The square numerous functions of many days which locals gather to attend.
the hotel features deluxe rooms to luxury suites. There are a total of 51 rooms which feature "American Clay plaster that emit no chemicals, inhibit mold growth and help regulate humidity". According to the hotel the rooms are among the most spacious in Thimphu.
Really appreciate YANA's professional organization of the entire trip. Could not imagine how a trekking trip could such be well organized - more or less like a 5-star hotel with the only difference of we were at more than 3,000 above sea level. Special thanks to Yeshey and the chef who had given tons of assistance when I was descending due to attitude sickness. - Simon Liu, Hong Kong
