This hotel has a tremendous charm on its own. It is difficult to describe however staying in this heritage property is a serene and wonderful experience. It is just a stone throw from the airport and is in the outskirts from the centre of the city. It is hustle and bustle outside however once inside you are transformed into another world. It has a lovely internal courtyard and the restaurants and meetings rooms are all excellent. The rooms are very large compared to the standard hotels you stay at. Each room is unique. The greatest charm of this hotel is its personalised service - something that you no longer get in the large and modern chain hotels that you stay in. Each night your room is serviced and the heater turned on to ensure you come back to a comfortable and warm room. At the front desk they will remember who you are and what room you are staying at. Also when I used the business centre (open 24 hours) and had some problems with the printer - immediately someone from upstairs (they must have a camera) came downstairs to assist me. When they ask you what time you are checking out of the hotel the next day it is not just to help them manage their reservations - the next day the porter is up ready to help you with your bags without you having to call. Of course the hardware of the hotel, bed comfort and the hot water taking a little while this is minor compared to what the people of Kathmandu have to face ie 6 hours of electricity only each day. If you expect a modern large chain hotel experience you will be disappointed. However if you immerse yourself into the history, heritage and service of this hotel you will enjoy a truely unique and authentic experience.
