So, nice big room, cosy bed, great location and you don't get traffic noise. All good. There's a few poor things, but mostly not their fault- power cuts, small amount of hot water, terrible wifi, and at night you freeze as the Windows don't shut and the blanket thin. But all in all, with the friendly staff and good price,... More

The room was big enough and not depressing but the dogs, the children playing, and the noisy neighbors who lived in the next building kept me up at night, So after two nights I had enough. I left there and went to the Tibetan Guesthouse work for the same price I got a quiet room.

First impression : Hotel quite attractive, too expensive for our backpack budget, but we decided to go in an other guesthouse nearby. Howevr, as the staff here was nice, we thought about taking a breakfast once. Reception : At the morning, the lounge was empty, and the walls of the dinner room by day gave a little sensation of unfriendly... More

I was at the hotel for one week. When I needed my visa extension, one of the owners Binaya Shresta, volunteered to send me to the immigration. It was complimentary. He did it with heart, and it felt sincere. During the earthquake, I asked Binaya if I could come with him, as I was alone. He agreed, took me with... More
