Best location, Amazing service!!!
The location is excellent. Only one block away from the tourist area but quiet and also close to some convenience store. The room was amazing. Large, extremely clean, cold A.C., hot water, large T.V. with many English channels, the Restaurant was also very good. The best part of my experience was the service. The staff was always smiling and checking if everything was Okay and the manager very friendly and professional very concerned about by satisfaction. Definitely I will return in my next trip Nepal in June.

This was perfect for one night as we had to catch a bus the next day from thamel. Entrance and lobby area are nice. Room was ok but it was quiet and had hot water for shower which is great in December in Nepal.

Solid hotel
We stayed here before and after EBC. They kept bags safe for us while we were trekking, and before we left, they helped us ship excess clothes back to the US. We didn’t leave the hotel much (because it’s Kathmandu) but the hotel was in close proximity to shops and a bustling area. The food was good too. We enjoyed our stay very much. The only downside of our trip was that the taxi the hotel arranged to take us to the airport swindled us for more money halfway to the airport. The hotel gave me a price, we were running close to being late, the driver took us halfway to the airport and then said he would only get us there on time if we paid more money. Otherwise, he would take us the long way to the airport.

Great place to stay in Kathmandu
Overall, great place to stay. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was good. Convenient location. Standard rooms are basic but serves the need. They can be noisy since they are close to the street, but this is expected since it is close to the city centre. If your are a light sleeper, then the deluxe rooms are recommended as they are quieter (not to mention nicer as well).
