Me and my friend are two Taiwanese women.
This is our first time arrive Nepal.

Though we don't have lot's of time,but we still decide to do the trekking.
which if we didn't go I will regret !

We make the all package with 4 days Trekking include the transport from Kathmendo to Pokhra.
And the hotels, all the meals (not include water)
They made as a really good arrange.
We enjoy a lot!

A specially the guide "Keshav Raj Amgai" he is so nice!
At first he looks quite shy and serious.
After one day,when we start to talk ,he is really a funny guy!
He take care us as princesses.
At the end we meet also his wife,and have a dinner together.

He made this trip more incredible!

Very accommodating people especially the Owner- Mr. Raj Pandey. Cozy place and comfy as well. FREE WIFI! All over the hotel. Helpful staff and have a very nice chill area at the Garden. Simply good vibes in the middle of busy Thamel!

Comfy beds, spacious rooms, ensuite and air con, oh yes and a balcony with city views.

The hotel is about a 2 minute walk from the main shopping road in Thamal - (turn right up the hill)

Excellent customer service and tasty food!

Good value for money - definitely give this one a try...

Good clean hotel. Had the promised free taxi from the airport and a free lift to our bus. Staff friendly and honest. A bit of noise (welcome to Kathmandu) Good restaurant. The free wifi worked which was great because no one was exchanging TC so had to transfer money quickly. Nice to be just outside Thamel. Only had time for one night but would stay there again.

This hotel is great value for money. Only 20 minute walk to Durbar Square and the city centre. The hotel has a restaurant attached that offers a great variety of food at reasonable prices. The staff at the hotel and restaurant are very friendly and willing to go out of their way to provide whatever assistance possible.
