From other reviews I expected more from this place.
The deluxe double rooms are certainly not deluxe and many rooms are damp...
The breakfast seemed to always upset our stomachs..
When we left, the guy tried to charge up 1,200 more than the actual amount. When I asked him why it was higher that I had calculated he claimed it was the 'exchange rate' that had changed. I knew the exchange rate and told him what the cost should be and he agreed immediately so knew exactly what he was doing. I don't expect this from a hotel, it is basically theft.
One positive thing I would say is the overworked guy who serves in the restaurant is friendly, even if he does work 15 hour days, 7 days a week!
I guess if your after a budget place its okay, but we stayed in much better places in Thamel for same price.
