This hotel is quite the surprise. Given where we were, quite far from Kathmandu, some 2000m above sea-level in the foothills of the Himalayas, I really wasn’t expecting such a plush hotel.
The lobby, restaurant, lounge area is quite impressive and the rooms well appointed. We had a room on the top floor which had a nice A-frame ceiling. If you wake up early enough, you can see a stunning sunrise over the himalayan range right from your room. You can either just open the curtains or walk out onto your terrace to see this unforgettable vista. Or else you can go to the large rooftop terrace of the hotel to be with all the other hotel guests snapping away :-)
The daily buffet for breakfast and dinner was also excellent. Quite a large variety of food which was very tasty. Don’t forget to test out the bar area which has a centrally-positioned fireplace, with lounge chairs situated all around it. And if you expect a place like this to have no internet connection, you’re wrong. The lobby area had free wifi, while in-room access was payable, but very affordable for a decent connection.
