We stayed at this hotel at both the beginning and end of our trip to Nepal on personal recommendation of our Tour Operator in the UK Imagine India (Their recommendations are usually based on the personal knowledge of their staff and having booked with them now several times, our likes and dislikes in terms of holiday accommodation and it definitely didn't disappoint). The hotel is almost a living museum beautifully decorated and crammed full of interesting artifacts. It also has a lovely courtyard area and pool where meals and drinks can be taken during the day. We booked a suite on both occasions and although different in terms of decor were both spacious and well appointed with fruit and cookies on arrival. The tea and coffee making facilities in the room were also very much appreciated. We ate in both the Nepali restaurant (9 course banquet) which was an experience and also in the main restaurant which also served an extensive buffet breakfast. We found both the food and service very good. Although 15 minutes drive from the main airport and given its busy location, the hotel and grounds are very peaceful with little or no aircraft noise. It is also within walking distance of both the Hindu Temple and Buddhist stupa (also accessible by taxi from outside the hotel - negotiate before your trip. It cost us 8NR return). We really felt at home in this hotel and would have no hesitation is recommending it as a place to stay whilst in Kathmandu. Would we return - absolutely!
