The only positive side of the hotel is the location (that awards 1 star in tripadvisor).
We stayed 2 nights, before and after our trekking tour.
The first time the room ws ok-isch, the bathroom had only one towel and it looked like it was used previously. It turned out later, that the bathroom has not been cleanedup. Some noise from the neighbouring partyplace was little disturbing, as we planned to wake up early, hence go to sleep early.
The second night, our room at the 5th floor, just below the roof, looked nice at the fisrt impression, the bathroom had 2 sets of towels and was more decent as the first night. Later we discovered 2 wiskey bottels in a corner, the sheets were more gray than white, basically the room was not cleaned up before our stay. The most annoying thing of the 5th floor are the pumps and engines on the roof. It is impossible to sleep when they are on - and they are constantly on! After several complaints the staff switched the pump off with the promise to not switch it on until morning time. Well, morning time for them ment 4 AM!! Imagine a bulldozer behind your head waking you up... that's the feeeling. And I recon our room was not the worst!
the rest of the night is history and i'm not going into details.
Breakfast the morning after: Completly tired from the almost sleepless night i check out the breakfast buffet, take one of the cleanest glasses I could find amongst the few and voila! ... a cockroach runs over the table. ...we went into Thamel for breakfast after that...
For this money it's not worth at all!
