“Oasis of Tranquillity in Dusty City”
Reviewed November 14, 2013

My room was spacious and overlooked a nice roof garden. Meals were served either inside or outside the hotel. The outside area was very pleasant and you had a choice of shaded or non-shaded areas. The food was of high quality. Breakfast was a buffet with the option of cooking eggs to order. Three locations were available for Internet service and connectivity was good. The location is so so. It is about a 25-minute walk into Thamel and the road resembled a permanent construction site. If you walk it at night, bring a flashlight. There is a side street leading to the hotel, which had a couple of moneychangers and several shops selling T-shirts.

Stayed at this hotel both sides of our trekking adventure (4 nights in total)
We found they hotel to be of very high quality. The staff are all extremely friendly and couldn't do more for you.
We did experience some issues with water temperature but this was dealt with promptly and when you think of where the hotel is you have to be forgiving of some issues. Food in the restaurant was beautifully presented and inexpensive.
The front of the hotel can get quite noisy due to car horns at all hours so i would recommend a room at the back of the hotel for the best chance of rest.
One negative aspect is only 1 wifi appliance may be used in the rooms at any one time.
Would still recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a comfortable place in the middle of chaotic Kathmandu.

The hotel is beautiful, charming, serene, and well appointed; the rooms are great; the food is excellent and it's central location is very practical (and it's amazingly quiet in the heart of Kathmandu), but above all, the staff …. the staff - friendly, outgoing, attentive - anticipated what I'd need before I realized I needed it, and always there with a smile, and a laugh and a joke. I spent over a month there - September / October 2013 - in the middle of the tourist season (and my 5th visit to Nepal), so these observations are not just about a brief stay - it's a real gem - a can't miss, tranquil retreat to stay in the midst of the hubbub of Kathmandu. I hope you enjoy your visit there as much as I did.

My first time in Nepal and stayed here for two nights. I arrived at about midnight after a delayed arrival and check-in was smooth. My room on third floor was not facing the front side where rooms have balconies so I had a view of the house next door. The room was quite simple and a typical standard room configuration of twin beds, desk, small sitting area and bathroom. All was clean except for the bin under the desk that had a dried up banana skin in. The bathroom was on the aging side but functional. Hand soap was a local brand and like a disinfectant type with not such a great smell. Shampoo was supplied in small sachets; also local brand and not that great quality. There was a hand towel holder, but no hand towel - just two bath towels. Shower/hot water were great. Bed and pilows were clean and quite comfortable.
I had breakfast in the restaurant which was included (buffet). There is an indoor eating section as well as a great outdoor area which also has a bar. Plenty of green plants and a nice garden atmosphere. The food quality was average and there was an egg bar to get cooked eggs/omlettes made to order. The juice was not that great but other dishes ok. The best though was the coffee - Illy brand and made by a very talented staff member - one of the best I have had! If you like a good coffee - stay here just for that!
There is an outdoor area on the fifth floor which offers views of Kathmandu and the Raddison hotel next door. Both indoor and outdoor areas to nap/relax or sunbath with a drink.
Overall service was good and all the staff were kind and courteous. There is also a tour desk that can arrange a whole range of activities. Location wise, it is next to the Raddison hotel where there is a casino and restaurants. There is also a short shopping street with souvenirs and a supermarket a short walk away. It is about a 15 minute walk to to the main tourist area of Thamel down a dusty road (but then all the roads are dusty)
Overall a recommended hotel - especially for the great coffee.

Overall I would recommed this hotel as

+ good hot water supply; good water pressure
+ nice Tibetan decoration in the lounge and in the rooms
+ quiet
+ many restaurant staff were ready and available to assist anyone during breakfast
+ with elevator

- the water from the tap and shower smelled bad (like that from the canal or that of stagnant water)
- free breakfast was so-so
- dinner was expensive and horrendous (It's more because of the quality of the ingredients used, not really the chef's shortcomings, I think.)
- the sofas in the lounge need changing
- dim room (some lights were not functioning)
- a very pricey hotel for what you get (room and breakfast) – 198 USD excluding 13% VAT and 10% service charge. At Hotel Manaslu, you get to pay only around 75 USD but you have better rooms (some more spacious and with “character”), very good food and more professional and well-dressed staff

I was on a medical trip in Nepal and we came home each night tired and hungry. The rooms are clean, the staff is helpful and kind, and the food in the restaurant areas is safe and tasty. There are many things about this place that make it cozy, with incense burning and cultural art and furniture touches. The only complaint I have is that the internet is not reliable nor is the bandwidth adequate. Otherwise a home away from home.
I ended up walking to the Radissen next door for internet, and also got a couple of good meals there (but too touristy for me). Great shopping on the street nearby, although overpriced. At the end of the street is a market with all kinds of goodies for between meals or for hikes.

Room Tip: Rooms closer to the front desk seem to have better internet, although sometimes even in the lobby it...
