I stayed here as part of my tour package. Never again. Apart from the location which is excellent and central to Thamels cafes and shoppping, the rooms were extremely shoddy. The bathroom was a nightmare. The bathtub was brown and draped by an moss shower curtain. When one opened the tap to the basin the water ran onto the floor...and strangely this was the same with the second room too! The water was rusty...as I suppose most places in Kathmandu. However, most places provide a complimentary bottle of water too! While extended electricity cuts are a reality of kathmandu, when there was electricity the aircon worked inefficiently. As for the pool forget about it. It was a lovely shade of emerald green. They do have room service but that also proved inefficient. Had to request towels thrice. Forget about ordering sandwiches or any food from them either. My cheese sandwich had no cheese...just cucumber and my chowmein was unbearably spicy. This most certainly is no 3 star hotel by a long shot and at 90USD single very pricey too. But, if you decide to stay there, remember your torch/ es (no candles provided), bottled water, take your own towels, a spritzer, and pack light...you may have to walk up to your room.
