Stayed here for two nights after going to Everest Base Camp. I had stayed at two hitels prior and this was by far the best. The rooms are modest but good for the price. The staff and location are excellent. Highly recommened.

They recommended eating places when I asked. The rooms are big and have everything you need. Taking into account this is a budget hotel, it's hard to... More

They can also arrange all your travel needs... More
