Before I get into my review we stayed here one night as this was the conclusion of a trek and a month long journey through India and Nepal.

From the minute my wife and I walked into this hotel we were greeted by a wonderful staff of smiling helpful people who immediately offered us complimentary coffee and tea. We were offered a seat in their comfortable lobby to take a minute to relax while they took care of check-in which was truly appreciated after the Lukla flight back from a trek.

We instantly felt relaxed and calmed which is something that we had not experienced in a whirlwind month we had just finished. We were explained everything we needed to know about the hotel (times of breakfast, complimentary coffee, tea and water, rooftop lounge, etc.)

Our room as well as the rest of the hotel was spotless which is a rarity especially in this corner of the world. The bed and pillows were comfortable and the shower had plenty of hot water.

We then tried the restaurant which is fantastic! The food is extremely reasonably priced and is down right delicious, so much so we ended up eating there every meal here on this last day and next departure day (four in total).

We checked out the next day at noon and were still welcomed to the hotel to relax after a bit of shopping. The rooftop is a great place to relax away from the chaos of city streets. In the evening we were offered a room to shower and get our bags organized despite having checked out already.

Thank you to the great staff at your hotel for making this a perfect end to our vacation.

We stayed for several nights before and after our trek. On both visits the staff were always friendly and helpful, the rooms spacious and clean. Easy access to the heart of Thamel, but set a little way down a side street which helps reduce the noise.

No elevator, which seems common for Nepal, so if you're on a higher floor be prepared to climb a lot of stairs.

This is a hotel I would certainly come back to and also to recommend to others. The staff is very accommodating and went the extra mile when I needed something printed and when I messed up my flight and had to get to the airport quickly. They were wonderful.

When we arrived the manager said that you are not in a hotel you are at your friend's home. I didnt know what he actually meant but after staying there i must say now i know what he means. Its truely a friends home in an unknown territory. The hotel staffs will try all their best to support you in every possible way. I am so happy with their level of professionalism, their cordial approach in everything.
Its a must recommendation from me for all you people who are planning for your trip to Kathmandu.

Very clean, comfortable rooms at a reasonable price. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating and friendly. The hotel is well located next to the shopping street and restaurants. It was a great start to our trip. We highly recommend it.
