Stayed here for a week for a conference.
This is not your typical "corporate" 5 star hotel with a bland atmosphere; you have a sense of place when you stay here. The Yak and Yeti makes you feel like you are in Nepal, in all the best ways.
The location is fantastic, with a short walk to many of the best tourist areas, shopping, and decent restaurants nearby.
The common areas are very nice. Main restaurant is good, coffee shop and pub are fine. The Gardens, pool and clay tennis courts are a highlight and are well maintained.
True, the guest rooms are a bit dated but are clean and comfortable; they feel more like a home than many of the corporate chains that I stay in. The a/c and hot water were always fine in temperature.
Just like a home, there are minor flaws, but the positive attitude of the staff more than make up for them. And do pay a visit to the adjoining conference facilities which are located in a historic former palace and look at the old photos to get a sense of the place before and appreciation that it is being preserved.
All in all, a pleasant place which made me feel welcome.
And, for conferences, the staff did a great job in organizing, setting up, and catering for the event. The conference rooms were excellent, with good a/v support and temperatures were right the whole time.
Hotel also has an adjoining casino and nightclub but as these are away from the guest rooms you might not even notice them!
