After a wild drive to the hotel from the airport, about 20 minutes, the hotel was like a calm oasis in the middle of the busy city. We were greeted with tea and the hosts were most eager to set up sightseeing for our group and we were very pleased with our driver and tour guide. Standard rooms must be avoided but the super deluxe were quite acceptable in a city where accommodation standards are low. The gardens are peaceful and the food was quite good. On line booking offered a 30 percent discount which made the value of the package appropriate for the city. We were central, with but a short 5 minute walk to the shopping district and we felt safe at all times. The staff was friendly and eager to please our group of 8 and Kathmandu was certainly a positive experience.
