When I booked it was the #2 in Nepal. Did not find it that great.
Right in the middle of Tamel. Noise and more noise. I had already paid for the hotel before we knew about the Shambaling House. I liked that hotel much better.
Not happy with their pick up from the airport. They sent us a rickety old car. For a third of the price we could have taken a rickety taxi. Not having learned our lesson we asked the reception for a taxi for the day, and they again got us one of the ricketiest taxis in Nepal and a driver that didn’t speak English. Reception sent us to their travel agency across the street which was overpriced and not very helpful.
For breakfast There are 4 menu choices from eggs to yogurt.
There is no elevator and they put us on the 3rd floor, 50 steps up.
Light for reading –fair but the lights keep going out. Is like this in the entire city.
Beds were comfortable with good linen and good pillows.
Wi-Fi- Worked well in the room
TV- Large modern with several channels in English.
Refrigerator well provided
Room for bags a bit tight for 2 large bags.
Tea Kettle with complementary coffee and tea.
Bathroom was small but fairly well decorated with modern hand held shower. There is a bit of mold around the bath.
No clothes line
No safety bar in bathroom is a bath shower combination.
Towels were nice and clean. They also give you two very heavy cotton robes.
Amenities –very poor. Wall shampoo dispenser and wall soap in sink.
Good hair dryer
No full length mirror or makeup mirror, but good light in the bathroom.
Laundry service well priced.
Large complimentary bottle water
Had a nice massage, but the location of the room is in their gym and the noise from the exercise machines and the TV is very obnoxious. Not a relaxing massage!
Dolma Gurung in reception deserves a mention.
This is not the town we came to 30 years ago……………….
