From MMT we booked a deluxe room . And the moment we entered the room it was so pathetic : dim lights , water dripping, spider webs and all untidy. The very moment decided to change the hotel. But talking with the manager , he was very generous .. within minutes he agreed to give us superior executive room ,...

Paid 994 via GoIbibo using my GoCash discount. The hotel is on the main road, between the lift and new public parking. And no these guys do not have a parking.

I stayed here for 2 nights with my 3 small children. The hotel looks a bit shabby but many do in this region so maybe that is unexceptional. The location is good for those wanting to stay in the city hub. The room smelled a bit unpleasant but the bathroom was modern and clean. The bedding was ( I was...

This is just stone throw away from the main road by the beautiful Phewa Lake, hidden in a peaceful and quiet small road. There is a friendly and cheap bicycle rental at their main entrance which I found very convenient to explore the area rather to go by foot. Annapurna peak can be nicely seen from the hotel lobby and...

Our main objective was to get a decent hotel close to parking. We got this. Rooms were fine, room service was good. The hotel is just beside the tourism lift, so not difficult to reach the mall road. Only problem we faced that TV was not working fine. We did not expect, but the room had view as well.

This hotel location is good but not on Mall Road. It is near lift on circular road and lift access is required to go to Mall Road. The misleading board on Mall Road that hotel is 50 metres away is false. It is much far away from that. Rooms were just ok. The staff is polite and hospitable
