Simply amazing staying at the palace-like hotel in the downtown of Kathmandu city. Staffs are all well-accommodating and customer service oriented. It is highly recommended hotel for those who wish to visit the beauty of Nepal.
Staff are friendly and the location is close to many tourist spots. The ambience is regal, being an old time palace. Most cabbies know the hotel. Room service is also excellent - food good and prices are reasonable.
The charm of staying in a once-upon-a-time palace allures one and the hotel has maintained its aristocratic intricaies on the inside and showcases its majestic structure at night by well-positioned lighting. Rooms are comfortable but care must be taken not to leave windows…

Beautiful hotel that was once a palace. The lobby is stunning. The Staff was superb, our room was nice, great breakfast with many selections (European, Indian and Nepalese) and wonderful pool area and garden - a tranquil area to escape from a dusty, noisy but wonderful city.…
"Try to avoid rooms on internediate floors as the staircases are steep, especially if your luggage is heavy."
"Very difficult to advise. Won't advise stay here. Good hotels are available nearby."
"Check out the size of the toilets. They are very small and the knobs dont work"
"Ask for a high floor room."
"7th floor rooms seem to have slightly bigger windows"
