Very friendly staff, clean and quiet. A hotel with everything you need on site including ATM, booking offices for tourism, restaurant, cafe, spa etc. Yet the hustle and bustle of Thamel on it's doorstep. Including a great supermarket with a large variety of international goods. The only downside I found was that the bed was very thin. Your body sank...

We stayed here twice in between treks and found the location great and outdoor gardens excellent but that was where it ended. Both rooms were very small with hardly any room to turn around in or store any luggage. We paid $80AUD per night with no breakfast for a three star and only had power and heating intermittently, the decor...
