I WOULD ADVISE PEOPLE TO FIND ANOTHER HOTEL CLOSER TO TOWN AND ONE WHICH RAN ITS GENERATOR WHEN THE POWER WAS DOWN
This hotel has the items it says on the website but they do not work, they have a generator which they say they cannot get diesel, therefore no air conditioning no tv and am unable to charge laptop and or phone as there is no power, as the main power supply in kathmandu only works for about 3 hrs during the day, and then turns on again at 1.00 am until 4.00 am them no power again until about 3.00 pm until 5.00 pm if your lucky. I stayed for 3 days and for 3 days no hot water for showering, and no light in the bathroom when the power is out, they state that someone left the hot tap running, they did when told about it on the second day offer another room to shower in. Also they did not inform me by supplying vouchers or by telling me that the price included breakfast.
The staff in the property where very nice and tried their best and the food was good.
