Excellent service at the hotel. Overall very friendly staff.
The travel desk was very responsive, and was able to very quickly suggest and organize trips for us. The room service actually went out of their way to accommodate us, and were very friendly.
Extremely fast check in and check out - even though we were checking in early and checking out late.
Breakfast spread was good - not as lavish as some of the other places, but good nonetheless.
Stayed in the room with the mountain view, and the little wait to get one was worth it to wake up to lush green mountains every morning.
Rooms were comfortable, decent loos, etc etc.
Wifi is not free - and is available for 1 hr (abt $10), 6hrs (abt $18) , 24 hrs and 6 days i think. it is easily accessible through the browser on your system. Each purchase is available for only one system.
Visit the casino with very low expectations, and don't expect it to be in line with other casinos you might have visited in other countries, and you'll be fine. Lots of slot machines. There are a few tables of blackjack, mini flush, roulette, etc. Did not see any poker tables. Lots of people around to take your order, but did not find any one to explain the game or point to available tables etc. Its a good place to kill a few hours, that's it.
We tried al Fresco which is in the hotel grounds, and the place was very nice - just right for a quiet dinner for two, but expensive (Dinner for 2 without alcohol = NPR 5000). Again, overall very friendly staff.
even though the hotel is off a busy street, you don't hear the noise within the grounds. the sight seeing places are not really close (except for shambhunath?) but it didn't really impact our plans.
