We stayed again for some time in this perfect place. Everything was at its best; the cosy rooms, the location, the peaceful athmosphere in otherwise busy, noisy and dusty Boudha and most of all the friendliness from all the staff, which truely comes from the heart. A treat!

This is a great place to stay! Accom, food and service is the best we have had considering Nepal is suffering. We are based here for a week. We genuinely feel cared for here. We can rest & recuperate before going out into the busy city.
