The hotel itself is beautiful, with well-manicured lawns and even a small pond where I met a goose and a duck.

Breakfast buffet is adequate - descriptions like "amazing, tantalising, wide-ranging spread" do not apply. Every service staff...

I stay their for 5 nights and I did not even get a toothbrush and toothpaste. Would you not believe that I am using one piece of bath soap for 5...

This hotel is very big and offered nice clean rooms with modern facilities and good internet options. Restaurant had good (though limited food at the time due to sanctions from India). Pool area was nice and had a nice eating/chilling out area outside which doesn't get to crazy or busy.

Our National Geographic Expedition tour of Tibet and Nepal wound up at the Y&Y. The staff of the concierge floor was welcoming and responsive. The Chimney restaurant hosted our farewell dinner ad the food and service was outstanding.. I recommend the hotel highly, it was an oasis in the teeming bustle of Katmandu.
