I stayed at the Malla Hotel for 2 nights in June 2008 before moving to a Buddhist monastery in Kathmandu, where I volunteered for a month. To be honest, I usually stay at very high-level, excellent quality hotels and I really did not want to spend too much money in Kathmandu so I chose the Malla Hotel. Overall, the room was clean and well air-conditioned, which meant a lot in the hot summer nights. However, the water in my bathroom was brown and the hotel reception immediately sent men to try to fix the problem but to no avail - they ended up moving me to another room next door. The water there still had a taint brown color to it but I accepted it and moved on. The service was good - the reception was very helpful and as I said, the room was always clean. These were the things that were important to me. I can't speak much for the food as the breakfast looked pretty bad and I didn't eat it. I ate one night the dinner from the hotel but again, the buffet did not look too appetizing so I only ate the boiled rice.
If you are looking for a clean hotel in a good location of Kathmandu, I would recommend this hotel. But just don't expect what you would receive from a 4-star hotel in the states or in Europe.
