The best thing about this hotel is its location between Thamel and Durbar Square. For the intrepid, Swayubanath is even walkable. The rooms are fine, restaurant is good and the garden is lovely.
While it may seem like a bargain there are cheaper rooms of equal quality to be had all over Kathmandu. While the staff is very helpful, you get the impression after a couple of days that they have their hand in your pocket constantly. Want a taxi? Pay us and we'll arrange it! Want this? Pay us! Want that? Pay us again! What they want is not to help you but to keep getting a commission on every "service" they provide. Walk 10 meters from the hotel and you can have 4 taxis for less than hotel will charge you.
Like I said, it's fine, but don't be afraid to look elsewhere. You won't be missing the best deal in town.
