The stay was great. Rooms were clean and the bed was great. The wifi is good and the attendants are very warm and friendly! We went past my tour group's allotted stay and booked the same place for extra vacation days! The milk coffee is great too, don't miss that! :)

I've stayed in many different hotels in Thamel and Yambu is by far the best. Location is perfect, close to everything but quiet enough during day and night.

Whenever I asked him a question I felt he gave me thoughtful, clear, and honest...
