Great value for money. The best part of this hotel is the restaurant on the roof run by chef Jimmy. I would recommend the traditional indian breakfast and definitely have dinner up there one night. We stayed in a deluxe room and were lucky to have an outside balcony area. Would definitely recommend room 111. The hotel staff are always...

The room was comfortable, was big,but in my room the heater didn't worked that day, so it was cold that night. But the sheet warming me. The breakfast was good and the crew are friendly. When we were living they gave us an scarf for the good luck. From outside it look totally different, so you might be surprised!

The hotel is right next to Thamel squire and tourist attraction area, such as shops and restaurants. People are nice and service was good. Rooms are okay with very small bathrooms. I booked through Agoda, but Agoda prices was for 1 person which I didn't realized until I get there. Hotel charged me extra $5 for my wife. It wasn't...

Very impressed with the professional approach by all the staff members. I booked a budget room and was surprised with a free upgrade to the family apartment as they double booked me. Very clean, with WiFi, kettle, microwave, hot water and cable. Definitely has jumped to the top of my list of places in Thamel.

The staff are really helpful and they make sure you get the best from your stay. The only downside for me was the power outages. Damn it was a bummer when you don't have hot water when you shower. I only wish the restaurant was at a lower level. The air gets really thin when you get to the top...

We've have found this hotel occasionally walking around Thamel. And, what a luck! Best accommodation. Very very friendly and helpful staff and the owner. Rooms are clean and nice, bed is very comfortable. Roof-top restaurant serves best fried momo's. You should try them! Will definitely recommend for stay.

The location is really good and the rooms are quiet (for Thamel standards). The rooms were nice and everything seemed to be clean. The breakfast was very basic and could use an upgrade. My biggest disappointment was that I asked for a room that was quiet as I had not been getting a lot of sleep lately and had to...

“1. Select a room in the middle floors to avoid too much climbing for breakfast. 2. Each floor has a balcony room which is better”
