As a climber returning to the high himalaya I have stayed at the Hotel Vaishali twice, (before and after my trip to the mountains) in 2005 and 2007.
Yes, the hotel is listed as 4* and no it isn't a 4*. However, you would be wise to note that Nepal is still very much a developing country. From my point of view it was more than adequate. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, the food is hygenically prepared (I've never suffered stomach problems from eating there) and the staff friendly with a 'nothing is too much trouble' attitude.
It's right in the heart of Thamel, and right in the thick of a hundred great places to eat and drink - I recommend going beyond the Rum Doodle and the K2 bar and sampling a few others.
If you're looking for a destination where you can send quaint little postcards home and have no cause to whinge that they're late then I suggest Switzerland or Skegness....not Nepal.
