We have spent 3 night here before our trek (thanks to the Lukla-lottery) and one night after the trek.
The hotel is very clean with extreme friendly staff. We have our room on the 4th floor, with a view to the street. At first we were quite unhappy with the street-side but later we realised that we were blessed with our room, as there is a disco in the neighbour on the other side of the building and it seemed impossible to sleep there.
I like goa/psy music, but that was really-really loud and disturbing this time. Seriously. I can imagine that it is impossible to sleep in the rooms facing to the party. We had no problems with sleeping on the street side, we used earplugs, and the music has just gone.
Anyway.. the room had endless hot shower, a tv, a powerplug where you can charge your things, a comfortable queen-sized bed. They had free wifi, and 2 pcs. It is possible to use the pcs even when there is a power outage in Kathmandu as they have their own generators.
It is in the edge of the thamel area, shops are nearby, you can buy everything you need for your trek.
It has a nice small restaurant, but we did not try it, only for breakfast, which was surprisingly good.
