Myself and my partner stayed here for 5 nights.
On the first two nights we were given room 211 on level two. The view was terrible and there were many bugs coming out from cracks in the floor. However when we returned to the hotel a few days later we were given room 420 on the fourth floor facing the other direction. The view was wonderful and there were no issues with bugs entering into the room. The only downfall was that the shower head didn't work properly, the shower tap fell off and the tv quality was not great.
Whilst the breakfast buffet had a wide variety of food not all the options were always available, maybe as our visit was during peak season and there were many people eating. Dinner and lunch was over priced, particularly in comparison to the quality and price of food in Thamel.
The hotel has a great free wifi system for those staying. However whilst i was waiting in the lobby (as I had a late flight out of Kathmandu), I asked the lady at the reception desk for a wifi card whilst I was waiting for my airport transfer, she informed me politely but with great disdain that it is not hotel policy to give out wifi coupons after checking out, however, she would give me one on this occasion.
Whilst half of the staff here are wonderful and helpful, the other half treat you with disdain.
Overall this hotel is nice by Kathmandu standards, however, the quality of its food, rooms and appliances may not meet some western standards. It is in close proximity to Thamel which is convenient.
Whilst our stay was ok on average I may try and stay elsewhere if I visit Kathmandu again.
