I stay at Hotel Excelsior from Nov 24, 2012 till Nov 27, 2012. Location is excellent, right in the heart of Touristy Thamel. Rooms are basic, clean, though a little dated. Room was bright and well ventilatedI supposed most Kathmandu Hotels are. Service was good. Most staff were smiley and friendly. You do get one of two grumpy faces but service is still instant and good. Internet is almost free. I paid less then USD1 for 24 hours. Speed is acceptable. Ask for rooms facing the back. It is much quieter. I was given a bigger room in the front. Neigbouring building very noisy, blasting music till midnight.
My daughter had a smaller room at the back. Much quieter.
Didn't notice the quality of water, but I think it was not yellowish . Showers pressure is strong and hot.More
