We stayed here for 18 nights while working on earthquake relief. Hot water showers were welcomed. Rooms are quiet at night as this is located off the main street but only a 5 minute walk from Thamel nightlife. Note that there is some remodeling on the 5th floor during the day which does not effect much as long as you... More

We had a good time at thamel where we faced nice balcony room which was very clean and spacious staff was very helpful and english speaker. Only the reason for not to make five point rated is the surrounding area which becomes noisy and some night clubs around the hotel. Rest everything was so nice and well treated. I would... More

A lovely, clean, welcoming hotel. Kunjan and the rest of the staff were all very friendly and accommodating, helping to organise day trips and drivers. Breakfast was delicious, rooms were clean and comfortable, and showers were hot. A quiet location but still close to the restaurants and shopping areas of Thamel.

This is a very basic hotel by North American standards but it certainly did the job and the price was right for a trekking vacation. We occupied two rooms, one before and one after our trek, and both were quite adequate. Having consistent hot water is a treat in much of Nepal, and that was never an issue here. The... More
