The hotel is characterized by exquisite and authentic objects d'art. For example, the carved windows displayed in the lobby bar are over 200 years old. Less

I stayed here after coming back from a trek. The hotel is very peaceful compared to the madness out on Kathmandu’s streets. Also, their service was top notch. The employees were so very helpful and kind.
