My first time in Nepal and stayed here for two nights. I arrived at about midnight after a delayed arrival and check-in was smooth. My room on third floor was not facing the front side where rooms have balconies so I had a view of the house next door. The room was quite simple and a typical standard room configuration of twin beds, desk, small sitting area and bathroom. All was clean except for the bin under the desk that had a dried up banana skin in. The bathroom was on the aging side but functional. Hand soap was a local brand and like a disinfectant type with not such a great smell. Shampoo was supplied in small sachets; also local brand and not that great quality. There was a hand towel holder, but no hand towel - just two bath towels. Shower/hot water were great. Bed and pilows were clean and quite comfortable.
I had breakfast in the restaurant which was included (buffet). There is an indoor eating section as well as a great outdoor area which also has a bar. Plenty of green plants and a nice garden atmosphere. The food quality was average and there was an egg bar to get cooked eggs/omlettes made to order. The juice was not that great but other dishes ok. The best though was the coffee - Illy brand and made by a very talented staff member - one of the best I have had! If you like a good coffee - stay here just for that!
There is an outdoor area on the fifth floor which offers views of Kathmandu and the Raddison hotel next door. Both indoor and outdoor areas to nap/relax or sunbath with a drink.
Overall service was good and all the staff were kind and courteous. There is also a tour desk that can arrange a whole range of activities. Location wise, it is next to the Raddison hotel where there is a casino and restaurants. There is also a short shopping street with souvenirs and a supermarket a short walk away. It is about a 15 minute walk to to the main tourist area of Thamel down a dusty road (but then all the roads are dusty)
Overall a recommended hotel - especially for the great coffee.
Overall I would recommed this hotel as
