A comfortable room with great staff at reception who helped plan a 2 day trip away with less than 12 hours notice. We just said where we wanted to go and they organised it. Very efficient! Location is good - walk one direction into the main Thamel stretch.... or the opposite way to Kathmandu Durbar Square. 10-15 mins walk in each direction. The garden out the back is lovely and the menu options are good. I would have loved a hot shower but unfortunately it wasn't working for me for the whole stay. When I mentioned it at Reception, they were ready to sort it out immediately, however, the timing wasn't good as we were off exploring. Oh well. It doesn't stop me from recommending this hotel as a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the garden.

The hotel is good and there is free wi fi even inside the rooms. The accommodation is quite simple and just like in the rest of Kathmandu electric energy is not always available. The staff receives you with a nice cup of tea. The hotel have a very beautiful garden where you can have breakfast and a really taste dinner, also a nice place to calm down since Kathmandu is a quite crazy city, where you get stressed just trying to cross the street. I did not like the location though. Thamel is not a good place to stay because streets are very narrow and the polution is bad because most of the streets are not paved. So I would rather stay a little bit away and walk to Thamel than stay in the middle of it.

This was our favorite hotel in Nepal. We stayed a total of five nights in December 2012. We stayed in a deluxe double room for the first four nights and stayed in a super deluxe room for the last night when we returned to Kathmandu after traveling around Nepal. The hotel is in a quiet neighborhood away from the hassle, yet within walking distance of Thamel and Durbar Square. The mattresses were comfortable and the rooms were very clean. The hotel has its own generator to use when the power goes out, although it wasn’t always used during the daylight hours. The hot water was super hot and wonderful. The hotel has three (slow) computer stations to access free internet. We loved that there was a water cooler in the lobby, and we could fill our water bottles at any time. The hotel has a nice garden and the restaurant has a wide variety menu. We really appreciated having a space heater in our room as it was a bit chilly at night. The reception staff are very friendly, although the front desk can get a bit busy and you might have to wait awhile before you can get help from the reception. This is not a five-star resort, but we were very comfortable here and felt that the price was fair for what you get. Lonely Planet picked this hotel as their top choice, and we completely agree.

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.

Room Tip: Bring earplugs in Kathmandu always.

This is the second time I've stayed at this hotel. I was a less impressed this time. When we arrived our reservation was not as we had requested. We had been upgraded to a suite (the most expensive room) which would be fine except we had to pay for the more expensive room. This was frustrating as we had booked on a budget. The room (701) had an overwhelming musky smell. The heater didn't work, and was not fixed for the whole week we stayed. The phone also didn't work, and was also not fixed for the whole week. This meant we were unable to contact reception/room service/make phone calls, etc.
However, the room was very nice. The hotel staff are all very nice and very helpful. The food (esp. breakfast) was really yummy and came really quickly. The hotel is also in a great spot, very close to Thamel.
