I stayed in the hotel one night on arrival at Kathmandu. I like friendly staff and nipeople in the hotel.

There are many hotels in Street Thamel, Nepal. But the hotel is excellent and luxurious comfort, which has only one. When we have time to relax. We should choose a good hotel and good location. For date and time is precious in our lives. And for me, it is here. Zen Hotel, Thamel, Nepal.

I stayed here for 2 nights, their service was good , the room is clean and WIFI is available here. So please fully utilise the WIFI as you cannot get the WIFI when trekking higher and higher. If I go Kathmandu again, this hotel will be my first choice.
