Book early as it fills up very quickly in the trekking season. It's 5 minuets walk form the frenetic Thamel hub which is a bonus as the noise of Thamel in the evenings are manic with music going on untill the wee hours.

After reading some reviews on hotels.com booked this hotel. Gold a complimentary airport pickup and was greeted well at the hotel. It is a good hotel just next to the shopping market of Thamel.

We were here twice in one trip for a total of 5 nights and really enjoyed our stay. Set just to one side of the busy Thamel tourist area, so not too noisy from the street, but still just a few minutes walk from the action, this hotel looks recently refurbished. It has really well decorated and spacious rooms. Bathrooms... More

I was booked to stay at the hotel. In the first instance they apologised for overbooking and sent me elsewhere promising that my room would be available the next day. The next day became a few days then finally they advised me that no room was available - a better paying customer perhaps. Not good form either way.
