The room was excellent, much better than other hotels in Kathmandu. Staff very nice and specially the manager who is a good person. The restaurant on the rooftop terrace offers very good views of the city. This hotel only needs an elevator.

Firstly, apologies to the guys for taking so long to get this review posted. I say that because my stay here was nothing short of superb.

I had visited the hotel for the first time and it was a wonderful experience. I came for a business tour and stayed there for 20 days, it was worth spending each penny in the hotel. There is scope to improve the restaurant service.

I stayed in this hotel on 19/06/2016-21/06/2016. Very friendly staff and good services at all. Hotel management is very decent and quiet helpful. Really I like this. They provide us free airport pickup also. I was with my family and I found familier atmosphere here. Hotel's good bye tradition is also good.
