This was the hotel selected by REI tours as our base while in Kathmandu. The hotel's location is just a short walk to the Thamel district, the Royal Palace, and Garden of Dreams. Rooms were clean and the staff was generallly pleasant. Rooms do have showers but we had the constant issue of bathroon floors being overrun with water. One room had no tub, just a slightly lower depression area in the shower stall that immediatley overran onto the floor. The room with the tub had a shelf at the front of the tub that acted as a gutter, flowing water onto the floor. We visted in Dec-Jan so don't know if they turn off AC for the winter but our rooms were too warm and we could not get the fan to turn on or cool. Opening the window is a downright health risk due to the smog. Hair dryers are not provided in the rooms but one can be requested. One day it took about 1/2 hour to get one delivered, another day we gave up after waiting about an hour. We did have laundry done. Very efficient, ready the next day, and reasonably priced. One very nice amenity was that as this was just our base while in Kathmandu, we were allowed to store luggage and unnecessary items in a locked room while trekking in other parts of the country.
