It is located away from the busy street, and the outdoor dining area is a very pleasant place to enjoy breakfast. The room was quiet and comfortable. I appreciated the free WiFi , which is not offered by many places in... More

Located in Thamel, close enough to walk to the shops, cafés and restaurants, but just far enough to get away from the busy street noise and honking cars. Our room was clean and comfortable. My only criticism would be that the wifi internet is very slow. We had to go to restaurants and cafés to use their wifi.

They were friendly and took care of our every need... I'm not kidding: at 3:00AM I needed to get to the hospital and the... More

We want to thank you for the wonderful stay we had at your hotel. We enjoyed the Thamel location so close to shops and activities. Your beds were comfortable and we loved the garden breakfast buffet. Thanks for your attentive service and polite staff. Stefan and Gale
