I was given a medium size room on the top floor; the room was 4 meters x 3 meters with very very simple decoration, one small wardrobe and attached very simple bathroom.
There was no refrigerator (while it was clearly mentioned on the website for the type of room I booked) no safe deposit box and coffee/tea maker, and no toiletries except for a small soap bar in the toilet. Room had air conditioning.
Electricity and water were available all the time in the room and hotel, also when no power was available in the nearby hotels one night.
Breakfast (not included) was so and so, it was made of bread and marmalade plus coffee. Breakfast is served in the beautiful and tranquil garden in front of the hotel. Dinner is also available at reasonable prices.
The location of the hotel is very good: although it is at the very end of a private small road, it's quite near the centre and the surroundings are pretty quiet (which is good when in noisy Kathmandu).
Free transfer from the airport could be arranged and it's pretty convenient, although the driver and the guy who's going to pick you up at the arrivals are keeping on asking money tips.
Unfortunately management is pretty annoying and they want you to buy very expensive tours all the time. If you don't accept they will be treating you differently and pretty coldly. Basically they sell transportation but you can get taxis anywhere for one third of the price.
