Initially I had some hesitations to book this hotel because it is situated at some distance from Thamel, Durbar square and other main attractive sites in Kathmandu. It is located in Patan, about where Kathmandu and Patan meet, beautifully located on a hill. I stayed in the hotel in a Garden Wing room for two short periods and really enjoyed it, particularly because it is so quiet and peaceful. However, the room offered no particular luxury but was clean and overall OK. There is a beautiful garden and a medium-sized, unheated pool. The view on Kathmandu and the surrounding Himalayan range from the hotel terraces is beautiful but this requires bright, clear weather and this is often not the case. It takes about a 15 to 20 minutes taxi drive to get to Thamel, depending on the time of the day. Taxis are usually waiting in front of the hotel. The restaurant and the bar are excellent. Breakfast was great. The hotel staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I had the privilege to visit the hotel during the Tihar festival, the festival of lights. Everywhere in the garden and along the balconies small lights were placed, creating a truly fairytale atmosphere. I consider this hotel a great choice when visiting Kathmandu.
