lovely backyard but the room needs to be upgraded

friendly staff, quiet environment, 24h hot water
Everything is good except for that the breakfast is not included and that the room we lived was a little too old. Also,power sockets were few and we can only charge two of our devices.

A peaceful retreat in a noisy city!

Garden, and roof terrace with views of monkey temple.
This is a great hotel if you can afford a bit more than the average backpacker options. There's a beautiful garden which makes for a peaceful haven in noisy, dusty Katmandhu - only spoiled by the sound of generators during Ktm's many power cuts. My deluxe room was nicely furnished with a comfortable bed and hot shower which never let me down. I felt it was good value at just over £20 although some standard rooms were similar if you stay in the main building - which you should try to do, coz it's like a totally different and much superior hotel! PS There's a great little local restaurant up on the main road a few metres from the junction, called Peacock something or other. Try the paneer pakoda! North field Cafe for good, slightly dearer food and local live music. It's walking distance to the best sights I found in this over-hyped city: Derber Square and Garden of Dreams.

Centrally located clean and comfortable

Friendly and attentive staff, clean and comfortable rooms
Stayed here twice and can definetely recommend the hotel. Advantage is that is very central but not right in the middle of sometimes tiring Thamel.

Fine Budget Option

1. Lots of hot water. 2. Big room 3. Friendly people.
We stayed recently at this hotel for 3 nights. It's a fine budget option for Kathmandu with a friendly and helpful staff, free airport pickup (they met us at the airport), nice garden settings and good food, especially for breakfast. Our room was also large, clean and airy. Free internet was also available and the hotel was the only one in Nepal that we stayed at that always seemed to have electricity. The only disadvantage is that the hotel location is somewhat ratty and there is a potholed, dirt road leading to the hotel which is located between Durbar Square and Thamel (about R 200 taxi ride from both) in an unappealing area. Most hotels in Nepal are noisy by Western standards and this one has lots of dog noise in particular at nighttime.

Enjoyed staying here twice

Location is near Thamel but quiet, lovely gardens are an oasis, modern rooms with good bedding
The hotel is only 2 streets, 5 minutes walk away from the craziness of Thamel. So it's quiet and less congested. It's a real hotel, with security guard and gate, as well as a very attentive front desk staff. The rooms were great. We stayed twice, and the second time was in the new building, in the super deluxe room. Truly excellent. But the deluxe was also great. The difference is better satellite TV, and quieter rooms. Really the only noise you hear are the pigeons, and they can be anywhere. The food was very good, and lovely to eat out in the garden. Each floor has a nice balcony area to read or check emails. Overall, I'd recommend this place for sure.

Great for groups

Restaurant and dining attached, quiet garden, and close proximity to shopping and airport
It was great the staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a group of 14 and were all comfortable! It had an amazing garden that made you feel like you were not in the middle of a busy city. It was close to shopping and the air port. The only downside was that the food took a long time to get to us, though we did have a large group which may have been the issue. The front desk staff was great in enchanging money at a good rate. The tos were clean and the internet was consistently working well! Overall an amazing stay at a great rate!!!
