The beds were extremely comfortable Staff were very friendly Location couldn’t have been better. 10 minutes walk to Thamel, set way back from the road so it’s really quiet. There are also some really nice bars and restaurants in the immediate area. They also organised an amazing box breakfast for us the day we left as we were leaving very early morning for our flight to Lukla for trekking.
The bathroom was quite old fashioned and there was a bit of rust in the bottom of the bath tub. The gym is tiny, it just has 3 machines.
Very peaceful escape from the chaos of central Kathmandu. Lovely gardens and although the hotel may not have all the features of modern hotels, we love the character and feel of it. Breakfast is terrific with lots of choice
The porters, cleaners, door attendants and wait staff are all very polite and friendly. Some of the reception staff and most of the supervisors/ managers need to loose a bit of their self-importance and follow the good example of the others. A small gym and and a small library/book exchange would be a useful addition.
The old grandeur of the building is lovely
The coffee at breakfast wasn't great and the low ceilings in the room made it feel like a basement even though it wasn't underground
The staff are friendly, the food is delicious especially the coffee, the room is clean and shiny lobby
The towels are bit dull and greyish color. The aircon in the treadmill area feel warm
Lovely ambiance and excellent location. Good food too.
