I stayed in Cascade for one week straight because I had business to attend in the nearby Bishalnagar area. Cascade is set apart from other hotels through its amazing customer service and staff flexibility. I was a student travelling on a budget, and though the rooms are a bit on the pricey side compared to hotels in Thamel, this hotel offers pure value for money. For instance, before travelling I sent emails to the hotel clarifying my flight details and timings and for every single one I received a response within the same day. After that, when I arrived, I was booked for a non air conditioned room, but since air conditioned rooms were available, I was bumped up for the same price, without even asking for it. The rooms are well furnished, and are reasonable in size especially compared to other hotels in Kathmandu. The hotel is centrally located if you have any business to attend to with any of the embassies. Food is a bit on the pricey side, but being vegetarian, everything I ordered was delicious, well cooked and the just the right quantity. You can book tours and further trips from the hotel, and the staff is very helpful and flexible in this regard. I was given consistent discounts through out my entire stay, and once when I complained that the commitments from my river rafting trip were not fully honored, I was given a full adjustment to the amount I stated. The hotel also organizes city tours for a very affordable fee, and you're taken around in a Volkswagen sedan which by Kathmandu standards is a proper luxury car. The hotel is situated about 10 minutes from the Thamel area, and the hotel staff will ensure you get a reasonably priced taxi. Every taxi that I took from the hotel was cheaper than the ones I found at taxi stands in the Thamel area. There's also free wifi with good connectivity and speed, albeit the rooms at the back may be out of reach. However, if wifi is a priority, let the hotel staff know and they'll be more than happy (as was my case) to give you a room right in front of the router. The hotel is situated a few meters away from the main street, which minimizes traffic noise while making it fully accessible. There's a temple right in front of the hotel which causes some noise in the morning, but if you want to make the best of your tour you'll be wanting to wake up in the morning everyday anyways, especially since most of Kathmandu is completely shut down by 11PM at night and tour buses leave early in the morning. A great place to stay, with exceptional staff. Definitely recommended for anyone who wants a great deal minus the hustle and noise of the main tourist areas.
