It is always such a treasure to find a culturally attentive hotel with care from it's staff.
The hotel is a myriad of little details which reflect the "Tibetan" culture in so many ways. It is a little off the beaten track from Thamel, but in the area of lots of the seasoned big name hotels.
It feels small, and friendly like a country home yet is quite large.
The rooms are a great size, well cared for with lots of little details you expect from 5 star hotels.
There is an abundance of charm, decorating detail and cared for demeanour.
The staff are attentive but not overly so. Only downside is that the little extras add up here like all good hotels, so if you are chasing cheaper anything you will need to go for a walk down the street. The hotel was quite full which is a great sign at the end of season, so if you are coming peak or mid season would book ahead of time.
Note - based on the beautiful rugs we saw in this hotel we ventured out and bought 2 to take home as souvenirs from the Tibetan community weavers workshop.
