Poor communication and fumbles my requests again
located in Thamel area and lots of shops around.
I requested airport pickup, and it never came. After waiting a long time, I used prepaid taxi to the hotel only to find that the hotel manager was ready to pick me up. Anyway, I was extremely pissed, but picked up the tab to smooth things over for me at their loss, I am pleased with their gesture. Although the manager promised to drop me off at the airport later instead, but guess what? The driver still ASKED me for money and would not let me go away until he confirmed with Hotel Buddha! Do you see the communication problem here again while the guest ends up paying for the problem/mistakes The standard room I had was a "smoker's" room, and I could smell the remnants in the blankets etc. The phone was physically a broken phone, and manager never bothered to replace it even after I told to his face. There was NO soap, No TV in the standard room. I had to sleep in my jackets just to make sure that I don't get infected by the blankets and sheets which smelled smoke-filled. If you just want a cheap place to stay in Thamel, maybe this place is ok for you. The pictures can never show you the real conditions the furnatures are in. The hot water was never hot but warm at best. I didn't bother to take showers because it was never hot enough for me. There is a big tips-box filled with cash right in front of the entrance! Well, tipping is only for extra, out-of-ordinary services provided. I saw none provided during my stay, but I supposed when the hotel claims that airport pickup is available , they mean it is only available if you pay for the higher room rate. I bought the last-minute promotional rate room, and I was left stranded at the airport!! So call the hotel directly to confirm if they are willing to pick you up BEFORE you book it

Okay hotel in chaotic Thamel
Near to hiking gear shops and restaurants
Stayed on 2 occassions. In a total of 3 rooms (changed once). Be careful that you get what you pay for in the room. One room had no hot water. One room had no working fan. The other room was just right (but half the plugs didnt work)

Right at centre of Thamel, basic
convenient for first visit to Nepal
Reasonable clean because it is in quite an old building. Reliable hot water and electricity supply. Noisy during the day if you leave windows open. Standard size room. Reception not necessarily knowledgeable regarding advice on tours. Kitchen is happy to supply hot water for drinking. Breakfast is not included and service for meal tends to be too slow.

Dobry hotel jako baza wypadowa.
Dobra lokalizacja, komunikatywność personelu.
Pokoje nadają się do remontu w niektórych stara klimatyzacja lub tylko wiatrak.
