“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2005

Although this hotel was recommended to us by a company using it for its groups, I was very disappointed by a lot of things. First the car promised to take me from the airport did not come and I had to wait and take a taxi. Second, the rooms confirmed on reservation, were not according to the description. It was mentioned that the deluxe rooms had private balcony facing the garden and priced at US$31 +13% tax. We had 3 rooms reserved, got only one and two other, without balcony.,which were priced at US$26+13%tax. On my asking the manager answered that they could not reserve special rooms as they give them on a first come, first give basis. The garden was nice and quiet. The breakfast is served in the garden but on a terrible slow pace. After taking my order it took 1 hour to get not what I ordered. After complaining to the manager the next day the whole thing took 15 minutes. The last complaint I have is about the bill: although we didn't get the rooms we reserved, we were forced to pay for the more expensive ones, so we payed for what we didn't get. I just didn't have anymore energy left to complain and fight for our rights, as surprisingly we came to enjoy and not to have negative feelings. But I would say that this is outragious!
As a summary I would advise anyone wishing to stay in Kathmandu, to look at other hotels and stay away from the Nirvana.
