Stayed at the Royal Penguin for one week in late November 2013. The hotel is situated on a busy road but the noise from the traffic is minimal, Kathmandu shuts down at about 9.00pm so it certainly won't keep you awake. It takes about 20 minutes to walk to Durbar Square from the hotel. The rooms are amazing. Very spacious with a separate seating area, comfortable double bed, plenty of wardrobe space, large bathroom and kettle and fridge. We were on b&b but ate in the restaurant most nights. The food was excellent. Plenty of choice and reasonably priced. What makes this hotel though is the staff. They truly cannot do enough for you. Thank you to everyone who made our stay so enjoyable.
