We stayed at this hotel 3 different times during our recent trip to Nepal - used it as a base between the EBC trek, then Bhutan. I cannot say enough good things about it. From the moment we entered, I knew I had found a gem and was so glad that I had booked our future stays here also (through Agoda). The rooms were clean - not even dust under the bed, good bedding - we like the firm beds - , always had hot water and the a/c worked well! The staff were very friendly and personable without being intrusive. We stored our bags free the two times we were away and had no problems.We enjoyed the breakfast - made to order - and also ate in the dining room several times in the evening. The food was hot and freshly prepared - something we are pretty fussy about.
We later found out that the owner secured us a rescue helicopter flight to Lukla as our flights had been cancelled three days in a row, working with our trekking guide - and no extra charge!
The hotel is in a good location - just off a main Thamel street, yet a bit more quiet. It took us anywhere from 15 -30 minutes to the airport, depending on traffic.
I would highly recommend this hotel!
