This was my first trip to Nepal. I randomly picked Hotel Thamel as my home base for my eight day trip. The beds are big and comfortable, and the hotel is quiet - which is always nice when you are battling jet lag AND high altitude and the location is PERFECT. The Thamel neighborhood is jammed packed with shops, restaurants...

Stayed there for 2+2 nights on my trip to EBC in October 2015. The room is reasonably clean, good location if you want to stay in Thamel area. Convenient walk to the shops, restaurants and bars area. It is located about 25m away from the busy and dusty Thamel roads, away from the noise and the dusts. Great value.
