This hotel really needs a big facelift. The rooms are in terrible condition. The location is great and this could be the best hotel in Thamel if they wanted. Now it is by far the worst hotel I have ever stayed, anywhere.
First of all, the rooms are in the worst shape imaginable. Floors made of plastic (they say they are brand new), electric sockets don't work (I had 5 in my room and only one of them delivered electricity). Internet does not reach all the rooms properly although it is quite expensive. The shower room looks as if it was 50 years old and what worst, I had freaking 2 inch tall mushrooms growing out of the room corners!! Please see the photo!
How is this even possible!?
Second thing, the breakfast. I ended up eating it outside as the breakfast is absolutely useless. Congratulations on also making the worst coffee anywhere! The kitchen staff is helpless. Good omelets though but that's all I could find to eat.
They say it is a 4-star hotel. I would rate it just barely one if even that. The worst hotel I have ever stayed in anywhere. That is a big shame as with this location they could be one of the best in Thamel. Manager, please get a grip!
The staff is very friendly but obviously, the management is absolutely useless. I can only advice to stay away from this so called hotel.
