5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

This hotel lives up to it's name, within minutes of arriving we were given cups of tea, coffee and when we asked where to book our flight to Pokhara, one of the staff organised the flights for us while we shared a plate of MoMo's ( lovely as was the noodle soup I had later that day ). Thamel is a very busy area but as this hotel is up a side street it is nice and quiet, a great base to explore this area of Kathmandu the Garden of Dreams one of my favourite places just a five minute walk away. The rooms are clean, spacious and the beds comfy, hot water and air con made our stay a comfortable one. Would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Kathmandu.

We chose this hotel after reading ratings on Tripadvisor. And we were not wrong!
The staff is excellent, ready to help you whenever you need. The hotel is in Thamel, but you can sleep excellent cause the road is a lateral one, without traffic and loud.
The room was clean and enough wide, with air con, even if we used only twice (and it worked very well).
You can have free refill of water every morning, and a very good black nepali tea too!
Finally at the end of our vacancy, when we'll be back in KTM, we are going to stay here again:-)

My buddy and I stayed at this place in early August. Great launching point to explore Kathmandu and party it up in Thamel. Very clean, great price, and super helpful and courteous staff. Hotel is tucked away on a side street, so it's close to all the action, but not on top of the action.

I had read many other reviews of this hotel and was impressed but when the taxi drove down the unpaved road to this hotel I thought we were in the wrong place, the area did not look the best. Looks can be deceiving and that was true here. Inside, the hotel it was spotless, the staff were extraordinarily helpful and couldn't have done more to help. The breakfast was beautiful and the rooms spacious and very clean. Very centrally located for the Thamel and I can see why the other reviews were so good. Would I stay here again? most definitely.
