My friend and I stayed in this hotel for 8 nights.
Great location in thamel but first timer may need to spend a little time to find it. However, the hotel free transportation for their guest from airport to the hotel. So it saves the hassle of taking taxi from airport.
Friendly staff. The room is acceptable for the price we paid. Hot water supply was good in this cold season.
Electricity supply was not stable. Being a frequent traveller to Kathmandu, we understand that the electricity supply in Nepal is not stable. However, the hotel can improve on their own generator as the current one is not working well. The hotel looks dark n basically there are no lights outside the hotel when short of electricity. The electric socket in the wall is not sufficient. There is only a single socket in the whole room and we have to fight for it when the electric supply is back. Our room is next to the common toilet provided to dorm guests and it was so noisy in the middle of the night as the dorm guests going in and out from the toilet and slamming the door. Though it was caused by the inconsiderate ppl but the hotel could do something to the door like adding door stopper etc to minimize the noise.
Overall you get what you paid for and honestly I will find another hotel for my next trip as I would like to explore other hotels with similar prices.
