We stayed here several times during our almost-four-weeks trip in Nepal. Nice rooms, clean and big enough to allow us to spread our stuffs and rearrange our bags easily. The staff is really nice and very helpful. And it's not too expensive regarding you're in Thamel. Last but not least, it's at a walking distance from the Tourism Board.

Free airport pickup and decent wifi. Luggage storage very safe (only manager has the key of the storage room). Sometimes noisy, but what do...

We stayed over a week in this hotel and enjoyed it very much. The staff is very friendly and keen to help. The showers our strong and hot, there's a balcony on every floor and it is definitely quieter than some other parts in Thamel. If you don't want to spend to much money and want value for money, we...

This hotel is located in the Thamel area in Kathmandu, a good place for backpackers, nightlife and restaurants. From that point of view the hotel is really good located, the staff is very friendly and helpful but be careful with the rooms you are staying in!! Those located at the back of the hotel are extremely noisy as there are...
