Firstly, the staff here are lovely - really helpful and friendly but this is a very basic hotel. The first room I had was on the first floor above the kitchen and really noisy so very difficult to sleeo ( woken at 4.00 by noise from below). The bathroom was very tired: shower curtain didn't contain the shower spray so... More

Sorry for your inconvenience sir. We will surely consider your request. As so far we are 3 Star Hotel, we can not do much. Also, I would like to suggest you to book Hotels outside of Thamel to have sound sleep. More

Originally booked at their sister hotel but due to "unforeseen circumstances", they transferred me here. Location is far from the bars/eating places in Thamel, but still a good 10-15 minute walk to the happening areas. I was informed that it is 2 years older than it's sister hotel, but given the room we were assigned and the sofas at the... More

Great staff, clean functional rooms, close to everything in Thamel. Newer separate bar area makes for a nice place to relax and get a nice meal or enjoy a beverage. Not far from main streets yet just far enough away not to be noisy or dusty. I would highly recommend.

This hotel offers all you could want with an ideal location, very close to the shops and some sights but off the main road so very little noise/dust. Very attentive staff with spacious rooms. a separate bar area is pleasant for a pre/post dinner drink and the restaurant offers a varied menu with good wine and beer. Sadly we did... More

This is not a fancy expensive hotel, but a standard hotel with good hot water shower, breakfast included was pretty good too. The great thing about this hotel is that while it is in Thamel district, it is off the main street, so it doesn't suffer from the street noise that my friends got staying at other hotels. That makes... More

This is a good hotel on the edge of Thamel. Relatively quiet, but still an easy walk to the heart of Thamel, and an easy walk to many places in Kathmandu. The staff was excellent and very friendly. The breakfast was excellent as well. The room was nice and spacious. Nice rooftop area to relax at. The garden dining area... More
