This was the first time to visit Kathmandu for us, and we stayed at Hotel Encounter Nepal. The first surprise was that the manager called me by phone a few hours after booking on the net, telling me friendly that they're waiting for us, and they'll do the most to make our stay there pleasent. Free airport pick-up service by them was very useful.
We wanted to see the Mount Everest from the air, and to have some easy trekking in the countryside. The hotel manager (Sujan) made a detailed plan for our stay, and arranged everything (air ticket to the mountains, lift to the airport and pick up, guide for the trekking, one night stay in another hotel after the trekking, etc...) So his personal care was more than impressive. We did not have to care about anything, he organised all the things.
Restaurant: for breakfast, I suggest the 'Nepali way', which is a kind of local food, delicious and good start of a day.
The hotel is in downtown of Kathmandu, but it's inner garden and the rooms are really quiet.
