This is an excellent Hotel.We stayed here from 13th May till 25th May.The Hotel has a beautiful garden that sweeps around the entire Hotel.If you've been to Nepal before, you'll know that dogs can be a big problem.They sleep all day and bark/howl all night, however you don't hear the dogs in Hotel Vajra because of the beautiful garden that surrounds the Hotel.In the early morning and evening, the garden is filled with Bird song.In the evening you can smell the sweet,enchanting smell of Jasmine from the many trailing plants that cover the garden walls.
The Hotel itself is very clean inside and out and the staff are helpful,smartly dressed and polite.While we were there, the Bandha's/ strikes were on and the staff went out of their way to make sure we still had a great time whilst there.
The waiters are lovely and no one expects a tip which is great news if your travelling for a long time and watching your money.The menu has a wide choice of food for both non veg and veggies and the coffee ( as much as you can drink ) is the best I have tasted in a long time.
Our Maid/cleaner was really lovely and even brought us freshly picked flowers every day.She would leave them in our room and when we returned in the evenings,the room would smell lovely from the roses and Jasmine she had left.A lovely kind touch we thought.We're sorry we didn't get chance to say goodbye to a lovely friend we made of her.
We stayed in the back packers part of the Hotel and had a shared toilet and shower.This didn't bother us at all.The toilet was next door to our room and the shower was just down a few steps.You're given a key to the shower so you know only the guests in the back packers part of the Hotel can use the shower.There is also another toilet in the shower room.We didn't have to wait once during our stay, to use either the toilet or the shower.The Hotel provide you with fresh clean towels every day, soap and plenty of loo roll also.The bathroom's shared between 2 rooms.
All in all, it's a beautiful place with really lovely staff and we'll stay there again.
