The hotel is very popular and busy that's for sure.
Location: fantastic, in the middle of the historical and shopping / entertainment area; felt safe and secure at all times ( female solo traveller)
Hotel itself: Clean and spacious, with a beautiful garden courtyard in the middle; as well as an outdoor restaurant with a bonfire going every night. Very welcoming. A bit pricy though...
The hotel has got its own mini mall inside, with shops, beauty treatments, a travel agent. Anything a weary traveller might need; but the comfort and a safety blanket come at a higher price of course.
Rooms: I was assigned a smoking room, 501 I think, a beautiful mountains view, but smelled so so badly I asked for it to be changed. If you are a non smoker like myself, Pls, request a non smoking room in advance, as I needed to wait a while for another room to be ready ( arrived late afternoon). Rooms were clean, but with tired furnishings. Could do with a bit of an uplift.
Also no efficient heating, one old, little electric heater on the floor, and it was getting cold in Nepal, with 5-8C at night. I asked for an extra blanket, waited a long time, called 3 times to different numbers as too many tel numbers provided for various services, confusing who does what and at what times as not stated opening hours of specific services e.g. Housekeeping; maybe it's an idea to provide one generic tel number to customers?
Overall, very good, even if more on a pricey side.
