We stayed at this hotel for a couple of days before we went to Pokhara and after. We stayed at the presidential suite and it was a really nice room and very spacious. The bathroom was also very nice and the room was located in the main building. We got a good rate from the hotel. It was less than 50$ for a presidential suite..We also saw all the other rooms we had in offer and they were all horrible apart from the presidential suite. They were very basic and extremely small and I would not recommend anyone staying in these rooms. However, the presidential suite is another category and it is really nice, if you can get one in the main building and not in the adjacent one. The manager was quite nice and he provided good service. The hotel also arranges some tours – but we found out that these were quite expensive. Although the room was really nice, there was no electricity due to the long power cuts in Kathmandu and though it was still spring, the room was getting a bit warmer. The hotel used the generator only for a few hours and afterwards we were given candles to take to our room!! The staff sometimes forgot to give us the candles. But it was in a way quite romantic as well however, there was a big wedding party right outside our room and it was extremely noisy for a couple of hours. The food is ok and nothing exceptional. It is better to try the restaurants in Thamel area and there are plenty of them. On our return back, we booked the presidential suite again. But the room was not as nice as the earlier one. It had less space. However, we were planning to stay only for one night and it was not too bad. Although the hotel is located in Thamel area, it is a bit secluded – which is a good thing as it is in a quieter area. Apart from the manager, who was friendly to us on the first day, none of the other staff were that great. We believe the manager was friendly towards us as he wanted us to book the hotel he selected for us in Pokhara and we were gullible enough to fall for it. Overall, it is not too bad a place to stay, esp. if you get a good rate to stay at a presidential suite. It has no frills and quite basic.
