“Nice Quiet Resort”
My stay was in December 2012, I don't think there were many other people there. The room was very large and required an additional space heater for adequate heat (easily available just for the asking). Nice balcony which would be very pleasant in warm weather for watching airplanes landing and taking off. Located just opposite the airport terminal up the hill. Room was clean, had a great view. Bathroom was absurdly huge. TV was a bit small for the room.
The restaurant served good food and quickly too. Staff remembered me during my stay and were eager to please. Wireless internet is available only in the main lobby but the speed was very decent. If you want to shop you'll need to drive or take a taxi as downtown Paro is a bit far to walk.
Nocturnal barking dogs as always but not as bad as in downtown Thimphu. Deal with it. It's Bhutan and it's better than listening to horns honking all night as in India.

“One of the best Property in Paro”
Airport facing resort style property which served the best food specially Indian/ Chinese Vegetarian in town. We checked in at the top most room facing the airport and watching the landing and take off planes from our sit out in the room at one of the smallest airport of the world was fun.Staff was very accomodating and food was execllent which we had in Bhutan. But the order needs to be placed one meal in advance and that is the rule to be foolowed across Bhutan for better experience. Rooms were great but lacked proper lighting.

“Very pretty. Peaceful. Honestly the planes are a much needed bit of Exitement 4xper day”
Excellent staff were always attentive to our requests. You do NOT have to eat the buffets, you can ask for menu and order anything you want-food is generally included in your daily fee. So if you don't like what you've been eating, ask for what you liked in the past. Breakfast eggs and hot toast were great-they don't know how to make meat in this country. Ham and other attempts at side breakfast dishes were kind of a fail. Oatmeal with ginger comes to mind.
My main advice is to point out what may be obvious-limit your number of days in Bhutan unless you REALLY don't mind driving hours and hours in between fairly homogenous stops. We were going to visit a friend in Bumthang, which was a torturous, bumpy, extremely long 10 hour drive from Thimpu. We found no seats out on DrukAir until 7 days after our arrival. We thought it would be peaceful, meditate, be off the grid and enjoy nature. But it was torture. We wanted out after 3 days and could not leave the country. It is so peaceful as to risk boring. And we were bored. Luckily we didn't mind hanging out in the lobby using our ipads with the fairly consistent wifi. Keep in mind, there is little variety each day in either what you visit or in what you eat. This restaurant offered the largest list of options we saw.
Very pretty room, giant. Hot water in bathroom. Heater works, but in November we kept it on as it took 3-4 hours to heat if we turned it off for the day, and that's too long to sit freezing in a room. Staff super helpful. This is a great place to stay.

“With the view of Airport, yet amazing”
On a hillside with a nice view of Paro's not too busy, interesting airport this resort is really a pleasant place to stay. Standard comfortable rooms have balconies with small tables and chairs so you can observe those rare airplanes landing and taking off from the Paro airport. That can indeed be interesting by itself. Our room had an electric pot to boil water for tea or instant Nescafe, the bathroom with all the convenient basics and a sitting area which made it pleasant. We enjoy stairs as a form of exercise; there were many of those and no elevators. The lobby had a couple of computer stations for the use of patrons. The bar, sitting area and the dinning room were where the life and action was. All the meals where like everywhere in Bhutan buffet style except somewhat better quality than average. Our breakfast buffet included a cook to order option for eggs.For dinner pasta was prepared likewise if you wanted.
The staff was pleasant and our stay was comfortable. If given an opportunity would come back to this place.

“Delightful 3star Hotel”
Lovely place with great views! Once you step into your room, you're greeted with complimentary fruits and soft drinks. Although I'm not a fan of soft drinks, is nice to see the drinks are complimentary.
Love the heater in the room! Is large yet thin so it doesn't takes up a lot of space but makes the room really warm. Toilet looks old and tired. Do need some refurbishment. However, most important is hot shower works which it does! Dinner and breakfast are fantastic. Staff in the restaurant try hard to make you comfortable.
Only downside is their wifi is only available near reception. Meaning you can only sit at the left side of the reception to receive their wifi.

“Basic room with great views of Airport and good food”
My husband and I spent 2 nights at the Khangkhu Resort. The room was large and clean with basic furniture. Our room had 2 twin size beds and a patio. They gave us a smoking room even though we don't smoke. Maybe all of the rooms are smoking rooms? I was a bit unhappy with having an ashtray in our room.

The view from our room and the hotel was great. We loved watching the planes take off and land. It was our entertainment while in Paro:) The food at the hotel was the best that we had while in Bhutan. For breakfast there was a chef that made cook to order eggs and for dinner, pasta. Additionally, there were two computers in the hotel lobby that are free for guests to use.

“Comfortable room, good food”
I arrived here from Thimphu to climb the Tiger's Nest and then leave the following morning.
We wanted some food to take with us for the climb so we ordered some sandwiches, noodles and momos. As we joked, we should not have ordered slow cook momos. It took an hour to get our order together.
But the food was well packed in silver foil and tasty. So I would recommend ordering the food, in advance advised. We had an enjoyable picnic along the way. Btw the cafe on the trail does not allow you to consume the food you take with you.
On our return to the hotel, we had a massage. There was only one therapist but she was good. Perfect after the climb.
Food in the restaurant was good, as many have observed.
Staff were helpful. After the massage, I went looking for my colleague and the staff told me that she was at the PC at the reception.
The only downside is wifi, which is impossible beyond the lobby.
The room is sizable with a small balcony. I was in 201 and it afforded a view of the airport. (I don't see any particular advantage of looking at planes landing while on holiday though.) The room was renovated. I felt my room was a little chilly and so turned on the heater for an hour. It had a fridge, with two small bottles of mineral water, and a kettle for tea and coffee.
The bathroom was sizeable too and the water pressure was good.
I would rate this higher than Tashi Namgay, which is closer to the airport by a couple of minutes. The staff are more "with it" and the food is better; wifi is the only letdown.
I would look for this place in my next stay.

“Great Place to stay”
Great place to stay but they need to have some provision for air cooling as well in summers. The rooms don't have fans which can be required in summers and in rains to get off the flies. They have an excellent chef specializing in Indian cuisine and serve some of the best curries and snacks. Though we were there in off season and choice was limited he managed to pull off the show quite well. The only thing to keep in kind is place ur order in advance so that the food is served well in time during the meal.staff is hospitable

“Well situated inn with loads of Potentials”
My husband and I stayed here right after landing in Paro. My husband is a giant, so we were lucky to get room 204, which had a king size bed. Many of the rooms are actually like little villas...ours was tucked in the back and was quite a hike up a rocky path, but worth it for the privacy and even better views than the rest. I don't think you can get a bad view in this hotel though! It was beautiful. The rooms are large, clean but spartan, and was made almost entirely of pine. The architecture is typical Bhutanese. We appreciated the 2 space heaters and the kettle with instant coffee and tea available for those jetlagged moments. The food was quite good, and the staff were helpful, although not the friendliest I have seen. The wifi only works in a corner in the lobby, which could be improved. All in all, good value for the money.

“Best Hotel that we stayed at in Bhutan”
We stayed at this resort on two occasions, when we first arrived in Bhutan and at the end of our 10 day vacation. My initial reaction was neither positive nor negative, but after staying at a number of other hotels in Bhutan I changed my reaction to a quite positive one. Rooms are huge (especially those on the third floor, which have the best views) and exceptionally clean. Beds are comfortable and there is good heat. The lighting is a bit dim, but we didn't really spend that much time in the room. The views of the town, surrounding mountains and airport are exceptional. We really enjoyed seeing planes arrive and take off given the technical difficulties in getting into and out of the valley. The food buffet is average, although at breakfast they will cook you eggs to order, which was nice. Wireless internet was available in the lobby and there were two computers for guest usage. All in all, a very reasonable stay.
