Elbrus Home is good value for money, it's a great choice if you wish to stay in or near Thamel. (which is quite noisy, but I guess this is usual in this part of Kathmandu). The rooms are a bit small for a couple, but the atmosphere is very nice and the garden is excellent! The only thing we missed was a wardrobe. However, we solved the problem with boxes - the owner was very kind. They serve delicious breakfast, tea and coffee and filtered water is available. The internet connection is OK, but it is certainly better in the garden. Hot water is also available, we had no problems throughout our stay. We stayed for 8 nights and had very good service and even suggestions and help for sightseeing in Kathmandu.
The place is close to restaurants and tourist amenities in Thamel. If you wish to try local and reliable kitchen, I could recommend New Hilton Fast Food, a tiny and certainly interesting(!) place just across the street. It looks not Western from upfront :), but the service is excellent and the food is very good!
