After my last visit to Potala Guest House, I was happy to see three new improvements in the facility. 1) The bathrooms have been renovated, which is good as they were the area needing a little attention. Now, given the typical standards of a budget hotel in Asia, they are very nice. 2) They have once again re-opened an in-house kitchen to serve breakfast. The meals are simple but having a freshly cooked meal served within 2-3 minutes scores big with my busy schedule in Kathmandu. 3) They now have wi-fi throughout the hotel. Previously having use to two very old and slow desk-top computers in the lobby was helpful but having wireless access 24/7 is awesome for all the work I need to get done there. And the wi-fi is on a solar powered battery system, so it never goes down during the periodic power shedding periods.
The staff has not improved, as it is very hard to improve something that is already EXCELLENT. The desk and lobby staff is by far the most helpful and friendly I have found in the past 40 countries I have been to.
