We stayed here at the end of a 3 week tour of India and Nepal, booked after reading the great reviews on TripAdvisor. The hotel definitely lived up to expectations.
Situated in Thamel, down quiet sidestreets, the hotel is very modern and the atmosphere very relaxed. The staff were friendly and very professional, they arranged our taxi to the airport for the next morning without any fuss and spoke decent English. There is free coffee, tea and wifi available in the lobby and free bottles of water provided in the rooms.
Rooms were comfy and adequately furnished, but could have done with a lick of paint. Had a great night sleep though. No lift so quite a few stairs, can be a struggle with heavy luggage though there were porters available. Rooftop terrace offered great views but bar was closed.
IF you are staying in Kathmandu and Thamel especially I would highly recommend. We stayed in May 2014 and the room worked out to be around £28 for the night.
