Stayed at Hotel Moonlight with family. Kids 20,18,16,12. Perfectly located "outside" of the Thamel. Quiet, friendly, clean rooms, great breakfast and room service, breathtaking rooftop, and a friendly and helpful staff.

Stayed here before and after trip ti Lumbini... staff were friendly and helpful. Any issues in room were dealt with immediately. Breakfast was varied and plentiful.
