We decided to check in to this 'five star' hotel after a three week trek through Nepal. After sleeping on plywood and 1/4 inch thick mattresses for three weeks, this was a welcome rest stop. The good: amazing beds and sheets, especially after a trek. Breakfast buffet was excellent for Nepalese standards. The staff was very helpful and accommodating and provided us with a late check-out.
The bad: The rooms are dated. They need a bit of a touch-up. They delivered an iron and ironing board to our room and the iron board pad was disgusting. The phone in our room was also very filthy. The bathroom condiments could be nicer. Just picking a few things that could be improved on.
The Awesome: I had to rebook a flight to China and tried for three hours on my own via every website available and got nowhere. I called down to the travel/business centre and Priyanka delivered me a ticket for the date I wanted within 20 minutes. I was blown away! She was so helpful and quick. Had to mention her here as she was so professional and accommodating. Thanks Yak and Yeti for a wonderful stay.
Tip: Eat the lamb chops at the Chimney Restaurant....so yummy after Dhal Bhat for 3 weeks!
