Our trip to Nepal started from this hotel and I would say it wasn't a good first impression. The room seemed so old, and not that clean. However after staying for couple of days in Nepal you realize you need to manage your expectations. It won't be a 5-star vacation with the power-cuts, dogs barkings, dusty smoke everywhere, bad roads, etc ... However, it will be a memorable one once you see Mount Everest, mountain trekking, jungle safari, etc ..
The hotel is right in the heart of Kathmandu with the Thamel market in few steps away.
Staff are very friendly and helpful all the time. They do everything possible to keep the guests happy.
Breakfast is basic. nothing special.
Rooms big but seem old but clean in Nepal standards. The problem is that a school is quite close so very noisy during the day.
In general, I enjoyed my stay here and I would recommend it for those looking for good value for money in the heart of Kathmandu.
