Amazing place! The rooms were sleek and minimalist, with beautiful beams on the (low) ceilings and other woodwork which gave the room character. Attention was paid to even the small details like the tiny, handmade soap and books on Nepalese history next to the bed. Piping hot shower! The owner is exceptionally friendly and also runs the small but impressive cafe below. NOT the traditional fare which is found everywhere else and is often geared to tourists. The menu is limited but every dish is delicious (we ate there practically every meal because we wanted to try everything!). Ingredients are locally sourced and you can actually get a decent wine. This restaurant would not be out of place in NYC...it is definitely up to that standard. Even if you don't stay here, you should eat here.
