Familiarity can be quite comforting and reassuring at times. This was my second stay at the AGH having spent 4 nights here 13 months ago. Arriving late in the evening my wife and I were greeted by a warm embrace from Nabin and Prakash, the manager and owner of AGH respectively.
What do I love about the AGH? It's not so much the fact that we had a free upgrade to a super deluxe room, or the memorable dinner that Prakash hosted us to on our second night. The AGH just has that special something which makes you feel completely at ease and at home,
Great staff, lovely interior design touches with the right amount of romance, rustic-ness and quirkiness. A charming courtyard to chow down the delicious breakfasts, with free wi-fi to boot. And all this right in the heart of Thamel. A perfect oasis.
If you are looking for a typical 5 star hotel with its typical facilities, the AGH is not for you. The AGH has only 18 rooms, no elevators, gym or sauna facilities but in my book, staying at the AGH is a 6-star experience. It has that special magic befitting of the best boutique hotels.
And yes, do count on me to be back here again next year.More
