“For the price, you could do better”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

Booked on Agoda, but for the price you could definitely do better. Room was reasonably clean but heater did not work and the tap water was filthy. Lighting was bad during power outage and I couldnt charge anything from the sockets during my stay.There are definitely better hotels in the area for the same price with better quality

Reviewed 11 December 2013

We've booked after reading good reviews but our experience was really bad.
The room was dark, the taps were leaking, no hot water in the shower, the mattresses were so thin that we felt like sleeping on the board.
Most of the times the reception was unmanned.
We left after one night and moved to Festoon hotel.

All of the staff at this hotel (including cleaners, drivers and especially the security guy) are friendly. The rooms are simple, spacious and pretty clean. I've stayed in a handful of hotels in Thamel and this one is easily the best for my money. The bathroom is a typical wetroom unless you pay for a deluxe suite, then the shower is self contained; worth it if you can't stand on wet feet.

Wi-fi is reliable.

We had a terrible experience at this hotel. We booked it via email before arriving. The room was filthy, especially the bathroom. We checked out the very next day and went looking for something else. Before you stay, ask to see the room!

We had advanced booked 3 nights at this hotel but walked out after 1 night losing the money we had paid. The hotel was dirty the rooms were dingy dirty with uncomfortable beds. The bathroom was so unpleasant we did not use it. The reception was piled with laundry bags the staff in resteraunt could not understand English and had poor hygiene. The wi fi did not work properly even though you had to sit in reception to access it. I would call the place a slum!

Hi, this has been entirely a budget stay and with a group of 20 people you always enjoy but the hotel is centrally located with close proximity to the market, we were warned to rome around at night alone... and only in groups but yes it provides comfort with in a budget price and Thamel road is also famous for girls and pubs around...not a good location for family..

Room Tip: for familes don't take the road side room
