Great value for the money. Rooms are basic, but clean. Comfy beds, hot water, and a nice strong fan. Slept well every night and enjoyed the rooftop garden. The staff is helpful and friendly and was willing and able to make another reservation for me upon my return to Kathmandu a week later. Would definitely stay here again.

This place is easy to find. The room I have stayed in, wasn't quite big, but good enough for a sleep. The beds ae nice and soft. The bathroom however, was small, dark and not really clean. It was old, the toilet seat was broken and the sink was dirty. The really good, massage like, shower was awesome by the... More

I'm coming to Nepal for the 3rd time. My stay here every time I come. Service is very good, rooms are clean, the staff friendly. Of course the prices are very good. Also near Thamel everywhere. I recommend it to anyone. Thanks Mr Milan. Hacer Aydın From Turkey

I had such a great time here. I really liked the rooftop area. Yes, it's typical Nepali maintenance, but the character offset most of that. If you are in Ktm and want Western style hotel you need to take a newer one or one owned by a Westerner. I didn't come to Nepal to sit in a hotel room.

This hotel is a good choice in Katmandou. For the price I feel the quality is over the other hotel of the same quality. The personnel is very sympathic and very kind for the room service to bring food at room. Sure they have some stains on the wall but it's normal in Nepal. I was one time in 5... More

One of the dumpier hotels I have encountered on Trip Advisor that had somewhat decent reviews. My first impression when I opened the door to the room was not favorable. Stains all over the walls. A few mosquitos squashed on the walls with blood smeared from their last meal. The bathroom was worse. Dingy, dirty looking, water didn't drain so... More

This hotel scores on location and service. The Tibetan family running the place is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is modest, the coffee/tea very thin, but the neighborhood is quiet and the wifi is good. The problem is the state of the building. The hotel is old and there seems to have been very little maintenance. The bathroom was the... More

Having stayed in three different guest houses and hotels in Thamel in Kathmandu, this one seemed like a nice and amenable property. Looks ok from the outside and the lobby. The rooms however, were quite noisy and the corridor rooms lacked privacy. The first room booked (even though I booked the Deluxe) had no hot water in the shower, but... More

Staff are really nice here. Stayed for 7 days while waiting for a India visa. Rooms OK, although I believe there where bedbugs. This was early July however, the worst of the monsoon, so with everything damp and only fans in the room I cant really blame the place.
