This is a review of the new wing of the well known Radisson Hotel as I just had my first stay there.
Its probably the most modern hotel in the City and most faciulities are up to 4 1/2 star standards from the open plan reception area to the bedrooms which are modern and well equipped.
There is a restaurant (quite good) and bar (just ok) but guests can use the facailities of the old Radisson Hotel accross the car park. Swimming pool, gym etc so thats a benefit.
It can be a bit noisy in the rooms facing onto the main roadway so try to get e room or a suite that is at the back of the premises.
My main objection to a otherwise very good hotel is the standard of housekeeping. There seesm to be no dewsire to keep the nice new hotel in a spic and span condition - for example the lifts walls and facings are already dirty - plates left outside rooms by guests stay there for a day or so sometimes etc etc. but this is standard for Katmandu - no real sense of proper care and maintenance.
The biggest failure is that, if you stay in the front room on Floor 2 - the premier rooms, there is a constant rattle of chairs being moved in the restaurant above, on Floor Three - a real nuisance which can onle be fixed by having the restuarant floor carpeted.
All in all - still a nice stay - worth a visit.
