Many of the hotels in Kathmandu are a little tired and the same has to be said of the Crowne Plaza Soaltee
The rooms are large but old fashioned. The shower over the bath with discoloured grouting and plastic shower curtain finishes off the outdated look. The club lounge was also only open from 6pm to 7.30pm
The staff were very very good, the food was also good.
The location was also good given that taxi's were easy to get and unless you stayed in the very centre of Thamel you have to get used to the congestion and the enormous pot holes.
If I were to go to Kathmandu again, I would recommend Dwarika Hotel but it is significantly more expensive in all areas.
