Apart from looking more shabby, I can see the place hasn't change since 1989.
I went to this hotel then because there was no room at a small place down the road that had trees growing through the building like something out of The Hobbit.
The Himalaya was a 'normal' place & quite a change to some of the truly unusual places I had stayed.
