The staff here were great, spoke fluent English, and were really helpful with everything. The hot water was plentiful and quite necessary after a long trek in the Gokyo region. My friend had a quiet room, but mine was not so quiet, but that is normal for neighborhoods in Kathmandu. The 5 minute walk to Thamel is easy even at night. Wifi worked all the time, which was rare, and the free internet on the pc's next to the lobby worked well. I paid $20 plus taxes, fees. The garden area is really nice and much larger than the other hotels' claimed gardens. This one is actually a good place to spend time reading or relaxing. Breakfast was nothing special, but ok. I chose Ganesh Himal over Potala Guesthouse which is ok too, right in Thamel, but costs a few dollars more for a similar room. My first night was in Kathmandu Prince which I didn't care for as the hot water and internet was not as reliable.
