From the second we arrived at the Gaju Suite Hotel until the moment we left, our stay at this hotel was incredible! When we arrived, the owner, Rubin and his assistant greeted us with smiles and impeccable English! They upgraded our room from a Deluxe to an Apartment Suite (which was like having our own private apartment, complete with living room, kitchen, spacious bedroom and bathroom) since they weren't fully booked and it was low season! We were escorted to our room and asked if we needed anything else--our jaws about hit the floor when we realized how incredibly HUGE the suite was--we'd been staying in lower-budget hotels and decided to treat ourselves to a nicer hotel with air conditioning for our last few nights! The rooms were clean, modern and even though there's load sharing (power outages) throughout the entire city, the power would only stay off 30 seconds, max....We'd stayed in other hotels where the power'd be out for hours. Also, the internet was extremely fast and reliable, which proved difficult to find in other locations hotels in the city. The Gaju is located in the heart of Thamel, but despite it's proximity to the bars and restaurants, is surprisingly quiet! Breakfast in the upstairs restaurant was fun! The restaurant is adorably decorated and breakfast was good! Their lunch/dinner menu is reasonable and the food is excellent quality--I was hesitant to order meat at most Kathmandu restaurants, but the Gagju's food quality was exceptional! The restaurant turns into a lively bar in the evening, and we got to hang out and listen to excellent live music with the amazing, friendly owner, Reuben...The customer service was over the top wonderful! The staff was friendly and always gave great advice! Guests also get a 25% discount at the spa inside the hotel and I received an amazing pedicure for a few dollars at the salon across from the spa. We were sad to leave this wonderful oasis in the city and we will DEFINITELY return again to the Gaju Suite and their friendly owners and staff! :)
