I stayed at this hotel in November 2010. I wouldn't stay there again.
It is of a very poor standard, yes it's very cheap, but that doesn't mean that it should be filthy dirty with fixtures and fitting from 40 years ago which are all broken or breaking off.. or not working. When you travel to places like this you expect a little adventure, a little rustic charm.. but this was just too dirty for me. Everything in the hotel is old and ragged, it needs changing or cleaning! The lobby was full of random furniture with sticky dark bits all over the sofas. The atmosphere was dark and dank. My room consisted of an old wooden bed with dirty sheets, which were probably once white, but now were a beige color. The bathroom was terrible. I might as well have been showering with a watering can over my head. It was an old building but it hasn't been kept up to date with even the basic modern amenities.
I didn't eat in the premises because the hotel restaurant was too dirty for me. The only good thing I can say is that they had a wifi connection available in the lobby.. it wasn't a very good connection and kept cutting off.. but it was at least available.
The area, Thamel, is very a tacky tourist area.. everything is a rip off. Every shop sells the same generic wooden carvings, nik naks, pasmina etc..
Did not enjoy my time here at all.
There is a little hut in the town center called "Chicken & Fallafel".. it's just a small hut with a man selling the best chicken wraps and fallafel wraps I've tasted in a long time !
