Fantastic hotel in the middle of Thamel
Fantastic hotel in the middle of Thamel. The staff was wonderful all around. The room was comfortable, clean and spacious. While the wifi was not that fast (I think the internet speed in Nepal is just not that fast in general) there was a dedicated username and password for each room which made it very convenient, a little faster than a shared network, and always kept me connected. You can't beat the location for convenient shopping, dinning, and proximity to local attractions. I ordered room service once, the food was just okay but it's probably that way to accommodate more tastes. Everything about the hotel was very professional and clean.

Very Good8.0
Mostly very good
We had a wonderful room and the included breakfast was great. Staff at front desk very helpful in making reservations. However, the room's floor was a little dirty and should have been scrubbed. Big downfall: water coming out of faucets is yellow--I declined to take a bath. Rusty look could have been in all of Thamel, I don't know. Second criticism was just as we were about to leave the front desk clerk asked if he could take a photo of us for the hotel, which I thought was very wierd. In All the years we've travelled I've never heard of a hotel wanting to take pictures of their guests; we declined. You get a scarf from the hotel at check out which is supposed to bring good luck.
