We looked at like 15 different hotels throughout Thamel (including all 10 of the top 10 on tripadvisor), and some of them were pretty cool, but Potala...

We (4 old blokes) used the Potala Tourist Home as our base whilst travelling around Nepal. Ramesh will help you with any request you have, from pick up from the airport to organising and advising on trips. The rooms we booked reflected what we paid (travelling on a budget). We needed a bed, a hot shower and central base. Good...
