I had a great stay at the hotel last November. The service was as good as any 5 star hotel at which I have stayed. Breakfast was pleasant in the courtyard every morning, and we ended the night by the fire pit in the same place. The food from the restaurant was excellent! The rooms were adequate for the area...

Always stay in this hotel when in Nepal for their garden territory. Very quiet. And even if you stay in, there are lots of places you can just relax, read or browse the Internet :). When we were leaving, they were also in the process of building their own SPA, so next time I visit I may enjoy it as... More

Free airport pickup is great, sorry for the guy who was waiting there for a very long time due to all kinds of delays at Kathmandu airport. The breakfast in not included but doesn't cost too much and is excellent. The rooms were ok, nothing great but it had everything we needed and for a budget price. Location is quiet... More

I stayed here for several days in March. The included airport pickup was great to avoid the hassle and screaming match of the taxi drivers on arrival. During the time of my stay they had construction going on on the ground level of the side building. So a bit dusty and noisy. My room was big and clean enough. Don't... More

We stayed for 2 nights at the end of our Kathmandu trip. Rooms are basic and clean and the best valued place we stayed at in Nepal during our 2 week trip. I highly recommend this place. Pros: - Location. Just on the top end of Thamal without being in the middle of it. The restaurant /courtyard provide some peace... More

Room is clean and nice, away from the market which is really good distance to walk. Water supply and hot water is amazing. Wifi and electricity goes off and on however it's I guess normal in Nepal. Really accommodating staffs they have, from the reception and restaurant. I will really recommend this hotel.

This was my third stay at this hotel and I chose it based on my previous nice experiences. But this time the rooms we got were not that good. The bathrooms were small and the wooden flooring etc were really worn out. Not sure it's the problem of the other wing that we were put in this time or overall.... More
