We stayed at the Thamel Eco Resort as part of an organised trekking trip to Nepal run by Earthbound Expeditions so we didn't research any alternatives, but were pleased with the hotel for the 3 nights that we were there.
The positives - Great central location, pretty garden area, great breakfast selection (variety of veggie curries, eggs, toast, cakes, potatoes - something for everything and buffet so you can eat as much as you need) we also dined here twice and were very happy with the food. Our rooms were very clean, although the showers were a bit temperamental, Wifi was free and pretty reliable, although I couldn't get Skype to work properly whilst I was there. The staff were friendly and helpful. Plug sockets that allowed us to plug in western plugs without needing an adapter.
The negatives - no lifts (although this is common throughout Nepal, so if you are infirm/disabled it's worth requesting ground floor accommodation) and a slightly stressful transfer back to the airport - they only allowed 30 minutes, in reality it took us over an hour and we really had to rush when we arrived to the airport - worth requesting an earlier transfer to be on the safe side. Also we had no option for a late check out which was a bit disappointing.
All in all, a decent base to explore the madness of Kathmandu!
