I booked Hotel Mandap for my first day in a 4 day trip to Kathmandu with my wife with apprehension. All 3 start and above hotels were beyond my budget. On reaching Kathmandu, hotel ambiance was a pleasant surprise. It has a great bakery on premises, and an excellent garden restaurant. Room was clean, and had running hot water, and free internet. On our first day, we had lunch and dinner at other places in Thamel, though we noticed that the Mandap hotel restaurant had a fireplace, which kept the indoor part of restaurant warm in evenings.
Nonetheless, I was still unsure whether to change to some higher class hotel the next morning, when we came down for the complimentary breakfast in their garden restaurant. By the time breakfast was over, we had decided to stay in Mandap for the full 4 days. The breakfast was amazing, and was served with grace and smile.
We immediately talked to manager, and he agreed to extend our stay. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, free internet, clean room, excellent restaurant, and excellent bakery throughout our stay. Ill heartily recommend Mandap to anyone on a budget, and looking for great food and clean rooms in Thamel area in Kathmandu.
