It was my first time in nepal and i was very happy with that hotel ! Very friendly and helpful staff and a stunning view over the roof terrasse.

Location is excellent : in thamel area

They also provide a free pickup service from kathmandu airport to their hotel. It is very convenient !

Excellent service with picking up and drop off airport. Free bk and delicious dinner with fantastic music. Nice facilities in the room such as hot shower and English channels.
They organize a day tour around Kathmandu valley which is also with reasonable price.

I requested confirmation of an airport pickup three times, and never received so much as an email. An "OK" would have sufficed. I assumed that the hotel had not read my messages, and paid for a taxi when I arrived at the airport. In the end, there was someone there waiting to pick me up, in an old unmarked car with no seatbelts (at least the pickup was free). I would have felt much safer had I been sure that he was really sent by the hotel. When I arrived, I brought this up to the staff, who brushed me off and basically said, well, we obviously got your email because we sent him to pick you up. The staff immediately asked my plans for my time in Nepal, and I told them I was planning to take the Greenline bus to Chitwan. They told me that Greenline had stopped running buses there, and there weren't any other buses that go there. Then they tried to sell me an expensive private taxi instead. The next day I checked, and not only did Greenline never stop running buses there, but there are TONS of other buses that go there as well. At breakfast the next morning, the pushy staff were interrupting people while they were eating to try to sell tours. The sheets/blankets were nice, but the mattress was not that comfortable, the lighting was poor, and the walls were paper thin so that it was hard to sleep. The breakfast was good, but it was a pain to walk all the way upstairs to the 7th floor. The housekeeping and breakfast staff were very friendly and efficient, and did their jobs very well. The room was not that comfortable, but it was clean. However I met several people staying in similar places for half the price, so I thought the hotel was poor value for money. The worst part was being lied to, as it made me uncomfortable during my entire stay.

We were a group of 5 staying last year on 2 different occasions. The staff were great and very helpful. Roof top bar and restaurant wonderful. I had a fall on descent from Tresko Ri and had to be helicoptered out. They went out of their way to assist and found me a room even though it was crowded and I did not have a booking. Nothing was a problem. The lift is a bonus as is the A/C. Rooms are clean and of a good size. Hotel is just off the main street and is quiet. Buffet breakfast is good. Will stay there again this year.

Room Tip: Hotel is down a very narrow alley way off the main road. There is no fitness centre marked in error

it is easy to stay hotel room is clean on price not high. Recommended point number one of this hotel is the rooftop. View from the rooftop is very well, I overlooks Thamel district far. (I think that it was visible Swayambhunath) I recommend this hotel when you stay in Kathmandu.
