Staff very professional and friendly, Italian restaurant is excellent, breakfast and lunch buffets very good, it is a must to always have non-smoking rooms. The furniture is a little old and hopefully they will soon be remodeling the rooms. Standard rooms are ok, suite is always better.
Although very distant from the center of Kathmandu, you can walk around the area surrounding the hotel and do some quite good shopping. I have been staying at this property for several years in a row. After spending 10-12 days in India, a dinner at the Al Fresco Italian restaurant is always enjoyable.
