Good location for Thamel, close to the bazaars for last minute Trek gear and Supermarket. Also close to many great restaurants. The rooms vary from very basic to moderately equipped. The room I had for the first couple of nights was a twin room, even though I asked for double. Had an untiled bathroom (other rooms were tiled and had bath tubs. This was more of a wet room. Most nights we were kept awake by the crowing cockerel or the sounds of revving scooters (if it's even possible to rev those things). When we returned from the Trek the hotel room was moderately better and bed was more comfortable. Breakfast is very good, with friendly staff in hotel restaurant. We left our suitcases with the hotel, whilst we went trekking, upon our return we were given back our suitcases which were in a filthy state. They had been placed in a room next too where some construction work was taking place, with no thought to covering up the suitcases whilst the work was carried out. When we needed to checkout later than planned, due to late night flight, the hotel management then became disagreeable and unaccommodating. We had explained the late checkout to our Trek organizer long before arriving in KTM, and we were told there would be no issue and no extra charges. On the day, the hotel manager made demands for money to be paid in US dollar for the extra 3 hours the room was needed for. Eventually the issue was resolved by our Trek operator. Given the choice, i wouldn't come back and stay here or recommend this to anyone, given the treatment we received on our last day by the manager.
