Stayed here for 7 nights then returned for 13 nights during an extended birding trip to the indian subcontinent. Free pick up from the airport took us through Kathmandu to Thamel. We were worried when the driver took us down what appeared to be a back street but were pleasantly surprised when we got to the hotel. It was in a quiet residential area only 5 minutes walk from the shops and other attractions. The girls at reception were very friendly and helpful, always smiling. The rooms were bright and very clean- the cleaning ladies came every day and were also very cheerful. The food was very good with a reasonably varied menu and fair prices. Internet was free as was cooled water. The garden was a pleasant place to chill and we spent quite a bit time sunbathing on the rooftop seated area which gave excellent views of the city and Himalayas beyond. Laundry service was good and cheap. Would recommend to anyone visiting Kathmandu.
