Have been here many times. Lovely and friendly atmosphere. You will get best service in this hotel. Thanks for the staff! We went trekking to Annapurna and they arranged every trip nicely and in good price!

We stayed for a night at an affordable price on our last day here in nepal. Breakfast is standard but you can always ask for more and its included in the room rate. Wifi is good 24hours. Service is good, staffs are attentive and friendly.

The main issue I have is the water frkm the faucet have an odd smell. We inform the reception and they said they'd look into it.

We stay in this hotel about 3 days, location is nice only few minutes walk from thamel main area and city, staff is friendly, breakfast in roof top was cheap and good, we had to pay 3300 Rupees per night when average price is 2500 Rupees, anyway room was clean and had 24 hours free Internet wifi, so no complain, they have elevator also, that is a plus! Only problem we had is frequently electric cut down, which had nothing to do with hotel I guess, overall good hotel and service, thank you Crishna for managing our Pokhara trip, will definitely come back again.

Ps: Something wrong with water in toilet, color is yellow, please solve this ASAP.

The hotel is clean and the location is good.
The room rate include free breakfast on the roof top, simple but taste great.
The free airport pick up service is also convenient for budget travellers. There is also wifi availble, but it's not stable. The power cut-off is an issue for us because it's too hot for us to sleep.
We also booked the 3 days 2 nights package to Chitwan national park and had a wonderful time there. Over all, it's a great vale for budget travellers. Will recommend this hotel to my friends.

Linda

Room description:

The bedroom was spacious and comfortable, had a large window and it was reasonably clean.
We stayed during monsoon period (june) when the weather can get quite warm but the temperature inside the room was nice.
The bathroom was also clean but it gets all wet because the shower is not separated from the toilet or wash basin and it doesn't have shower curtain (this is very common in bathrooms in Nepalese hotels).

Facilities:

Hot water was available 24 hours.
Wi-fi signal was good and worked even during power cuts (which happen everywhere in Nepal).
They had some basic lighting in bedroom and bathroom during power cuts.
Breakfast was included and had good continental and local options in the menu. Rooftop dining offered a nice view of the city but not of the mountains because of cloudy weather during our stay. Airport pick-up was arranged by the hotel. There is no elevator service.

Neighborhood:

The hotel is conveniently located for shopping and dining just within a few blocks from the hotel. The White Horse and Cha Cha cafes are decent options on the same street as the hotel. Unfortunately, the neighborhood was noisy during nights and early mornings.

Staff:

The staff were friendly in general and helpful. They could make arrangements for our travel needs very well but sometimes were too insistent to get our business for such arrangements. There are plenty of travel agencies nearby to choose the best deals from.

Overall:

It was good value for our money and our stay was good. If we visited again, we would look for another hotel (maybe little more priced).
