Stayed one night with a friend on our way to Kathmandu. We had a 10 hour layover before catching a 6:30 AM flight. Make sure you either have the connecting flight boarding pass, or a confirmed reservation. I had some online reservation issues and wasn't sure if I actually had a valid reservation or not. The surprise was seeing someone at the gate with my name on a card (first time ever) who guided us through the transit procedures and the very thorough Indian security procedures. The hotel is accessed in the waiting area of T-3 before the gates and isn't clearly marked. It was good to have the guide get us there. Make sure he/she registers you with the security (army) staff at the hotel entrance. They're supposed to record your passport information, which we didn't do, and it almost came back to bite us the following morning when we checked out.
Check-in was pretty fast and the rooms are what they are, small with two beds and a long dresser with a TV. But moderately comfortable with a good bathroom and shower. We showered, relaxed a little, went down to the terminal (take your passport and boarding pass) to get a bite and some coffee. They offered a wake-up service as well as having I-phone docking clocks. Up at 4:30, checked-out at 5:00 and at our gate by 5:30. Much easier than leaving the airport and probably much more comfortable than the sleeping pods.
