Firstly this hotel is in a good location convenient to the Thamel tourist area. 'Rum Doodle' is right next door as are numerous shops and it is only a few hunderd metres to the centre of the tourist area.
The hotel itself is a bit run down and showing its age. All the furnishings both in the rooms and foyer show their age however we were reasonably comfortable. The airconditioning didn't work very well and we never got a hot shower. The pool was also unusable.
Realistically if you are used to flashy 4-5 star western hotels you would probably be fairly disappointed with this hotel. However like us if you use a bit of perspective and make the most of things the hotel is probably acceptable as a short stopver base.
