I stayed at Hotel Thamel on two separate trips to Nepal - Oct. 2010 and Feb 2011. I had a great experience each time.
Everyone who works at the hotel is very friendly and accommodating. If you need help with anything - arranging a taxi, planning a trek, etc. the staff is very willing to help. You can also arrange pickup from the airport ahead of time. It was nice arriving in Nepal at the airport and knowing there would be a ride waiting for me.
The rooms are comfortable, clean, and quiet. Modern toilets, too (I was a little worried the toilets would be squat-style). I also enjoyed the attached restaurant where you can get a nice meal for a small price.
And the location is good, too, in the heart of Thamel. You'll have access to many shops, restaurants, internet cafes, and trekking services. Although the hotel is located in a busy area, it is tucked away a bit from the hustle and bustle so you never have problems resting and relaxing inside your room.
I don't know the next time I will return to Kathmandu, but when I do, I will only book a stay at Thamel Hotel. I encourage everyone else to do the same.
