“Excellent location & friendly atmosphere”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

This hotel is a real gem. It was recommended by a friend, but it exceeded my expectations.

The location is perfect; set just behind a busy Thamel street, with easy access to everywhere you would want to explore. The rooms are of a good standard, and very comfortable. The hotel also has a rooftop bar/restaurant which has amazing panoramic views of Kathmandu.

I organised my trip and trekking from the travel agency here, and it was a great service. Everything was delivered as expected, and we had an unbelievable time.

What really made the stay memorable was the atmosphere. The staff are incredibly welcoming and friendly, and seem genuinely interested in creating a memorable stay in Nepal. It really felt like 'home' in Kathmandu.

I visited Kathmandu with my family in June and wanted to stayed for a couple of weeks there. I needed a place where the room service and food was great as my mother is strictly a vegetarian. In this regard the hotel was great in customer service. The staffs were really kind and up tp their tasks. i had no problem while i was there as a customer.

Room Tip: Almost all rooms have equal quality.
