Staying at the Backyard Hotel was great value for money because we were always met by friendly staff willing to go above and beyond to help us out. The rooms are excellent, with a great amount of space and good bathrooms. The hotel is also located in the middle of Thamel, which means we could walk almost everywhere as there...
