Access Nepal Hotel is one of the larger and grander hotels in Thamel. Thamel is the backpackers district of Kathmandu, and a great place to stay. Everything you need is a stone throw away, and the streets/hotels will be full of friendly people who can help you organise your trip. Within Thamel, Access Nepal is strategically located near the more buzzling streets with noisy pubs and good restaurants. Its just a few steps away from pumpernickel bakery (Good for breakfast) and Roadhouse Cafe (Good for Lunch/Dinner), and is also beside Kathmandu Guest House (KGH, just next door).
Most taxi drivers may not know the exact location of Access Nepal hotel just based on the address. If this happens, pass them the phone number, or try going to Kathmandu Guest House instead.
One interesting thing about the hotel when you walk in (instead of booking online), is that there is not exactly a fixed price. So its probably better to do some research by visiting other hotels before deciding, or bargaining with the owners over the price. There are lots of hotels in Thamel, at different price ranges.
The room was clean and good, certainly one of the best (if not the best) among those we stayed in Nepal. Power cuts are common in Nepal, but Access Nepal fixes that by using a backup battery that runs during these power shortage. However, during the period of time, only the lights are working (plugs do not work). The wifi and hot water also works perfectly. The room includes a small refrigerator, but we never found any use for that, especially given the power cuts. The 'sound proof' windows work to a certain extend, blocking off most of the noise from the live bands in the pubs nearby. The music stopped about 12 midnight on a Saturday night.
We stayed there for 1 night (on the 3rd floor), and would have gladly extended our stay if not for the planned flight.
