I would recommend Nirvana Garden unreservedly, as a peaceful and nurturing place to stay in the middle of Thamel. The staff are all welcoming, kind and helpful; the ambience is pleasant in a slightly rundown kind of way - but then, much of Kathmandu (even the so-called top-notch hotels) is like this and you get used to this aspect of the teeming city. It is a great place for a single person to stay and unwind. The rooms are pleasant: I had a room with a balcony looking down on the garden/courtyard, and felt very comfortable. Despite the ubiquitous load-sharing, there was always hot water to be had and at least 1 light in the room when dark. The buffet breakfasts were varied and tasty. The service from the restaurant staff was always courteous and non-intrusive. Free access to the internet, when power was available....and the reception staff always knew when the power would be off each day. From 6pm their generator would kick in anyway........Overall I would say I felt very welcomed in this place!
