This was our 5th Hotel on our round the World Holiday. We've been to Nepal on four occasions before, and stayed at the Utse back in '96. This time was very disappointing, the room was not up to standard, the Air conditioner was pushing out hot air when the daytime temperatures were in the 30's. The ceiling fan fell apart one evening so we moved room. This room was extremely noisy, being connected to a duct travelling four floors. The windows wouldn't close properly so we couldn't lessen the noise. At first the air conditioning wouldn't function, so someone had to go onto the roof to rectify it.
As we arrived, builders were moving into the restaurant to make alterations, so this curtailed our use of what was the best feature of the hotel. The staff tried very hard to ignore what was happening around them, but on occasions even they were pressed into cleaning up after the builders.
One small point we posted a card to relatives in England at the Utse reception, it's probably still there as it's the only post undelivered.
All told, we would not recommend the Utse, unless you could be reassured these conditions have been rectified. How you achieve that is another matter, the Nepali's are well known for telling you what you want to hear.
