I really hated my stay here. The only reason I stayed for more than a night was because I had a lot of luggage that I didn't feel like moving. The hotel is close to the action of Thamel, but in a strange location. If you're walking back after 10:30 you'll be accosted by no less than 3 prostitutes. Its also overpriced, if I was paying $5 or $6 I wouldn't complain, but they charge nearly twice that for a very dingy room.
Also, the staff is quite shistey. They'll quote your room in USD, but if you pay in rupees they'll give you a bad conversion rate. On my way out the offered to get me a cab to the airport. Fine, but they tried to get me to give them more money than the cab should cost. Luckily I knew better and told them to get lost. There are many other places to stay at much more affordable rates.
