The Yak and Yeti was clearly a grand hotel - and still has a lovely entrance and gardens - with a small pool and a quite well equipped gym.
however, the rooms have seen better days... at least the room I was in. On the upside - it was quite spacious and had a really good sized double bed, and there was complimentary bottles of water which was a nice touch - but that was about it!
The carpet and furniture was very worn out, and the bathroom was rusty and stained, the TV the old fashioned model, not even a hairdryer in the room...
and - probably the most annoying - the internet costs about $12 per day - which is really exorbitant anywhere - especially as all over town it is free.
