A nice basic five star hotel. Nothing too personal but ok and the hotel has nice grounds in the complex. I enjoyed the terrace at the main entrance which was a nice place to have a drink after a tiring day. Staff was nice and polite. Room was clean and somewhat large.
Location has its pros and cons. The hotel is located on the other side of the town from the basic tourist area of Thamel. I noticed I was the only westerner walking around in that neighborhood so there were no sellers and whatnots around but also only a few shops or places to eat. It was more quiet and nicer than the buzzing Thamel and it seemed more like the real Kathmandu.
On the other hand you have to use the taxi to get around, it's really slow during rush hour and not too many of them know this hotel. Had a nice adventure with the cabby when we got lost in a storm.
A good stay but you can get a nice hotel closer to the action too.
