    I missed the international atmosphere, this felt more of a hotel specially for people from India. Staff had poor english knowledge. I do not recommend this hotel for people from overseas.

    I did not specially like anything.

    Nice

    Lots of shops in the area with local souvenirs and clothing. You have seen one, you have seen them all. Shopping malls as we know them are not around, and no information is given as to where they might be found. My deluxe room was very comfortable, Very helpful front office manager. I phoned him and asked him if, like other hotels in the area, he was able to arrange my complimentary pick up from the hotel. He made the excellent suggestion that I should get any taxi and ask the taxi driver to take me to the hotel and on arrival go to Reception to be paid by the hotel. This happened, no problem. It removed all the stress of negotiating a taxi fare three times the going rate with taxi drivers whose constant mentality is to rip off every single tourist through considerable overcharging..

    They had a really old toaster at breakfast which frankly should have been thrown away long ago, paricularly it was for self use by guests and not by means of service by restaurant staff. It downgraded the class of the hotel considerably. Electricity cuts are regular and inconvenient but this is common to all hotels. Hotel had its own generator so inconvenience was tolerable. Check the times of cuts at reception so that you at least know when not to use the lift!! Drainage system not too good and I had to keep the bathroom door closed at night to keep away unwelcome smells.

    The room was spacious and clean and staff friendly

    The staff are friendly but they are not knowledgeable about their own city or country. Its no use asking them for directions. Also the paid buffet/alacarte is very expensive

    Nice

    We didn't like the fact that even though we booked it with Booked.net when we arrived to the hotel they didn't have our reservation and their claim was that they don't work with Booked.net. After all that they wanted us to pay in advance and not at the end.

    Nice

    transport was arranged by hotel for pick up drop from /to airport may be at little extra cost .local sight seeing trip was also arranged by hotel .security wise this hotel appears to be very good .we could not avail all facilities of the hotel due to paucity of time .

    pick up from air port was arranged little late resulting in wait at airport & loose precious time .location of hotel is such that one hour was spent in travel from air port for a distance of 7 km .the facilities of hotel were not briefed by hotel .telephone calls received from india were not passed on though calls were acknowledged .no response by hotel for several mails sent by me for clarifications on kathmandu .no news paper was provided .lifts were not switched on when power supply was not there .

    I booked the hotel @ $60.00 per night,but they claimed @ $80.00.After submit my booking voucher then after 2 days they agreed @ $ 60.00.In Reception they had no copy about booking. At the time of check out they claim 3% more for payment through credit card without any receipt.Finaly I have bound to pay in cash to save 3%.

    It was a four star hotel or at least I selected as thinking that way. But it was a hotel with poor hygienic condition and very dirty. Just to summarize tv didn't work, the hotel didn't have slippers and the reception was surprised when we asked slippers as it seems abnormal. And above all the hotel bathtabs and towels were totally old and looked just like floor wipers. I stayed only one night and changed to another hotel.

    Nice

    The best thing about the hotel is that it is situated in the heart of Thamel district could be disadvantageous if you are trying to get to some place ina hurry as its quite crowded .But it allows you to experience the night life in Nepal which ends pretty early so if you have nothing to do in the evening and want to walk around after touring the busy crowded city this is a nice place to walk around find a small joint to eat and relax we found this lovely restaurant called Kruathai with excellent food loved the place and the service.If its a spa kinda break you are looking for definitely not the place as its really busy!Must say the rooms are very spacious we booked 2 deluxe suites could have done with one and extra bed

    Hotel rooms not completely clean the water running in the toilettes are yellow in colour! Breakfast is same for all the 6 days we were there limited menu .

    Good location in Thamel, friendly staff, spacious rooms

    Poor water supply, power failure sometimes... Probably hotel needs a kind of renovation to be of higher standard
