We stayed here for one night at the start of our trip and again for our last night. The hotel is in a good central location and down a quiet lane so you are away from the immediate hustle and bustle of the street.

We ate there on our first night and they had a good selection of food in an evening buffet. Breakfast again had a good range to fill you up for the morning. In Nepal there are regular power cuts and when this happened they were quick to sort it out. Throughout the hotel there is free wifi.

After staying twice we realised that the rooms on the right side of the courtyard are of a much better standard and quality than the rooms on the left side.

Room Tip: Rooms on the right side of the courtyard are better quality than those on the left side of the court...

We stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel is nice and clean, with a view of the garden from our room. Room was comfortable. The food in the restaurant was average. There were a few rolling blackouts, but they were quickly fixed (and they happen everywhere in Nepal!!).

We stayed for 3 nights and had a wonderful stay. Staffs were great and helpful. Very handy and was good value for money with an excellent breakfast and Wi-Fi included. Room was clean, comfortable and just what we expected. We were within walking distance to restaurant and shops. Would definitely stay here again.

Our tour company booked us at this hotel before and after our trek. The word "resort" is an absolute joke. The rooms are spacious but basic. The WiFi was unreliable. The cable was in jeopardy of being cut because the hotel hadn't paid it's bill. (You should know that there are frequent power outages in Thamel at all businesses.) Worst of all, there were tons of little green ants on the bedsheets in both rooms where we stayed. The staff was not very attentive, and we did not receive the same level of service as we did at other comparable hotels in Nepal.

We can't recommend staying here.

The resort is tucked in to a laneway in Thamel. It is quiet, calm and a great place to stay in Kathmandu. The staff are friendly, the courtyard is a lovely place to sit. You're able to book trekking or sightseeing trips (Earthbound Expeditions http://www.enepaltrekking.com/), We have stayed at Eco Resort on 4 separate occasions...and are booked in for our next trip too!

An oasis of calm just yards from the hustle and bustle of Thamel's busy streets! This boutique style hotel/property has good size rooms and facilities and a very high level of customer service at a great price. I stayed here for 6 nights in total before and after a trek to Mt. Everest ABC in Tibet organised by Makalu Adventure, who I would recommend to anyone looking for a fantastic trekking adventure in the region. Just ask reception to put you intouch with Mr. Mohan their MD! Enjoy your stay.

Perfect location, being on my own I felt very safe. Rooms are so clean and beds comfortable. Even though the power goes out sometimes and the water is cold sometimes, who cares. I had a wonderful stay and I want to come back but its hard to get a room here. If your expectations are tooooo high, lower them and you will be pleasantly surprised.

Room Tip: my tip is to have fun....
