This was our first stop on our Bhutan cycling trip with KE. After the spectacular view from the flight into Paro, the exciting landing and the serene Terminal building all that was needed for a perfect welcome was a comfortable, traditional Bhutanese ex Palace to stay in. And thi

What a wonder, historic hotel. It is truly a Bhutanese experience so don't expect a lot of overly modern amenities or the latest in design. It is a beautiful, old traditional building that really adds to a visit of this very unique country.

Hi can I stay here with my 2yr old kid? Do they provide breakfast complimentary and how about the room accommodation? Where I can visit from this hotel?
Yes. Your 2 year kid can definitely be there. Breakfast, included or not, I have no clue as I was in a sponsored group. Rooms are very cozy and comfortable. You can access the Tigers Nest Monastery from here, which is one of the absolute best places to visit in a Bhutan. You could also visit the Dzongs and soak yourself in one of the hot stone baths.

My mom has difficulty with stairs but she can manage a floor. Are there any ground level rooms?
There are rooms on the ground floor as well. You can opt for it. You need to walk for 40m to the restaurant.

How are the hot stone baths here and what do they cost
We had the baths to ourselves and asked them to open the curtains so we could take in the view of the mountains. Having it to ourselves was definitely nice. I'm not sure it would be as nice with strangers in the room too. The hot stones were seriously hot, so they gave is cold water to help regulate the water temp which was helpful. I can't remember the cost. I'd recommend it if you can have it to yourself

Do this hotel Accept Visa credit cards? I heard most small hotels in Bhutan only deal in cash so its a major concern for me as my flight leaves at 7 am and payment might become an issue unless I am cash ready
They do accept credit cards as do some of the shops in town. However, sometimes the card readers are not working (in the shop at the school, for instance.) But keep in mind that to go to Bhutan, you must guarantee a minimum expenditure of $250 a day if you are an American. My friend and I prepaid our meals, transportation, guide and driver, entrance fees and hotels through an agency. You will absolutely love this country.
