We only had 10 days in Nepal over Thanksgiving 2011 and were using Funny Nepal Treks (Highly recommended by the way). We were given multiple options for our 2 nights in Kathamandu (1 upon arrival and 1 before heading home) and decided on this place. It's at the end of a little street off the main drag, which was nice for noise reduction. The room we were given at the end of the top floor and was large, had great light, and was fairly clean. With the constant blackouts, candles were provided along with clean water in an old themos. The biggest issue was the bathroom. It was pretty beat up and there was a large square piece of wood covering a whole that seemed to be old ventilation to the next room. The courtyard was great and so was breakfast. The staff was always very helpful. To make sure another hotel would not be better for our last night, we had our guide take us to what he considered the other good hotel and after taking a look, Thamel Eco Resort was way better. We also received a better room for our second (last) night and there were no bathroom concerns. Given the other options in this price range I would definitely go back.
