This is a great place to stay while visiting Kathmandu--it's in the heart of Thamel, at the Thamel Chowk, and the group of people running it are a bunch of sweethearts. They offer great services, many of which are free, including free tourist information, just downstairs in the main lobby. They're happy to set up trips for you to remote locations, along with grab a taxi with you to make sure you make it to all of your locations safely and not fear being taken advantage of. Some of the rooms are noisier than others, depending on the location, as it is situated next to a bar with a live band, but if you're choosy with which room you would like, the wing 105 and over is the least noisy. I greatly recommend this hotel!
