My husband and I stayed here as it was the joining hotel for our trek with G Adventures. We checked in a few days early and were given a smaller room than we paid for with twin beds, when we explained the situation they promptly moved us to a bigger, better room at the front of the property. The firt one had no balcony but better views over the city, so either would be fine. Just make sure you get what you pay for.
When we arrived around midnight they opened up the kitchen and cooked us dinner and gave us some beer which was a nice touch. The room was clean and they provided all of the amenities you'd expect in a hotel of this price. The restaurant is great but the breakfast's aren't the best as they serve western food (which in my experience is never good in a developing country - the local breakfast's are better). There is a guard at night time and a guard dog as well. It is on the outskirt of Thamel so the street is quiet late at night.
Overall we were happy with the service and standard. However, when we left a day early and gave the appropriate notice the staff demanded money and wouldn't let us leave. It was only $30 but based on principle I refused to pay. What annoyed us the most was that another trekker from our tour had already paid for a room and the hotel staff said there was not one available and tried to put her (a solo traveller) in a dingy hotel down a dark alley. We had to get our trekking guide involved and eventually they gave her our room and we didn't pay based on us writing a positive review online.
In short, ensure you get what you pay for and don't pay until you arrive. Otherwise, you should have a pleasant stay.
We stayed here in November 2011.
