This hotel is very well located in Kathmandu and the staff are just lovely. Nothing is too much trouble, smiles are premanently fixed on their faces and a big interest in the guests movements and needs make hotel a sort of home away from home.
It's clean, beds are very comfortable and meals are lovely. If you score a room on level 5 , regard that as training for your upcoming trek! Please remember that this is a boutique hotel in the sense that it is small enough to sometimes be overbooked if people change their plans or dates so best to book in advance.
Like elsewhere in Nepal, there are power shortages but the hotel uses a power generator if it happens in the evenings. Solar Hot water is primarily used to heat water however, during my stay, I believe they installed an electric heating back up system as more hot water was available . At any rate, I suggest that travellers change their morning shower habit to an evening one since it works with the solar heating system AND it is difficult to stay clean enough all day in Kathmandu to get to bed without another wash!
the 2 points that they need to work on, is to organise room allocation well in advance of trekkers returning to hotel and to reply to emails for extra night private bookings. There were some nights also when a couple of dogs barked incessantly making it an unrestful night ....someone please attend to that!
Staff are happy to refer you to a massage place nearby and yoga is offered on the top floor on demand .... however they will not bring a yoga teacher in just for 1 person.
I would be happy to stay there again especially after I had to try another type of hotel for 1-2 nights down the road.
