The hotel is nice. It's a picturesque building with gardens and 5 or 6 storeys. However, it has two big drawbacks: it' a bit far from the main shopping streets, and at night that means walking along really dark and twisted streets. Also, I went there in winter, and although there is hot water all day, the heating system is...

My favourite place in Kathmandu, I look forward to my next visit. The garden is very peaceful, the staff are friendly and the food is top quality. thanks again! The internet connection was also good enough for me to do my daily work. Best place to visit out of town was Pokhara..

Booked for 4 nights, but when plans changed and wanted to stay 3 nights and use the extra night already paid for another night a few days later, they would not do it. Will not stay here again. Room was musty, and toilet did not flush adequately.

We recently returned from Kathmandu and spent a total of 6 nights there both before and after our Trekking adventure. The Hotel is centrally located to the Thamel tourist area. The Hotel staff are extremely courteous and helpful. The courtyard garden at the rear of the Hotel is very serene and relaxing. Great to see Wi Fi installed since our...

This was our backup hotel in Kathmandu as our first choice was fully booked. The free airport pickup sounded appealing especially as it was our first trip to Nepal. The staff is very rigid and cold but the rooms are even colder. We hardly had hot water and the bed was uncomfortable with somewhat suspicious sheets and blankets. The room...

Stayed there with friends who had looked the address up over the internet. What I really liked about this hotel: The location, super close to Thamel (the noisy, overcrowded touristic district) but far enough to be a little quieter. The decoration is magnificient: Huge black stone buddha statue at the entrance, typical nepali paintings (called tankas apparently), masks and wood...

The hotel is very nice, also the view is superbe but the staff is very unfriendly. The staff was not realy interessted to make the stay of their guest nice. Even the reaction when i left an complained about the unfriendlyness was not satisified - there was no reaction... just a little jerk with the shoulder

Free airport pick-up, friendly staff, AMAZING views of Kathmandu from the rooftop (the Rooftop is a MUST to visit if you're staying here). Delicious cooked breakfast included- always too much food. Free wi-fi for all you socialites out there. Excellent, clean bathroom with HOT water mmmmm. Was one of my favourite places to stay in Thamel!!
