I booked my accommodation with this hotel through Agoda. I didn't expect people would come and pick me up since I just booked through a booking site and I was ready to take a taxi on my own. When I arrived at the airport, the guy from Hotel Nepalaya was waiting for me with my name in his list! It was very prompt (I booked only 2 days before my arrival) and efficient!
The hotel room was very clean. The hotel is located right in the street. Full of shops on the left and right of the hotel. Electricity was out at certain times but they had emergency light in each room so you are not stuck with no light.
The staff was amazing. Especially Kamal Rimal was really really helpful. He was very professional and not really push you to purchase their services but help you in every way. I felt very good even from the first day. He also organizes trekking guides and porters any trekking route you choose. I didn't use the service thought I wanted to go trek by myself. But having a guide/porter is necessary since certain part of trek was very deserted and no one really passing... I thought I stay here only the first night and try different hotel on the way back but I stayed again because they were excellent and very helpful... I would return to this hotel again and again :)
