This was my first stop in a Buddhist pilgrimage to Nepal and India, so did not know quite what to expect initially. On hindsight, the Kathmandu Grand Hotel turned out to among the better ones that I had stayed in over the 2 weeks...certainly, it is not the last name in luxury, but things worked the way they were supposed to, i.e. electrical sockets are functional, hot water was consistent, room was clean (something which is not always the case in the other hotels I had stayed in subsequently).
This being a tourist class hotel, the cafe tends to be full during breakfast - which was also nothing to shout about. Ironically the other hotels that I had stayed in subsequently - albeit less desirable in terms of room quality - had served better food.
I had stayed in a single room for a total of 2 nights, with no complaints. Service staff were among the better ones that I had encountered during the trip.
