quiet spot close to Thamel

Great staff, kind and thoughtful
It's a quiet spot close to the bustle of Thamel. It's got a lovely view of the mountains, particularly on the upper floors. The showers are hot and the wireless worked. Breakfast was good and the staff are very helpful and friendly.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Best to get out of town on a sightseeing trip if you want to avoid the busy center of Thamel. Staff are great to suggest places to go.

great service, but rooms a little shabby

great service, quiet street
Has a great location, 5 minutes walk and you are in the busier streets in Thamel, with all the restaurants and shops, but the street it's in is quiet. Durban square is walking distance. The rooms are decent, but a little shabby, and wasn't properly cleaned when we checked in. But i still recommend this hotel, besides the great location, I recommend this hotel for it's service. The staff really did everything they could to help us make our stay in Kathmandu as good as possible. Amongst other things they got us some discounted air tickets, witch is sweet considering how expensive flying is in Nepal.

Nice service but small rooms

Walkable distant from main Bazaar
I stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed the view. It's located in back alley but for the price, I have no complain.

ruhige und doch zentrale Lage, Dachterrasse

geräumige Zimmer, durchgehender roomservice
sehr zentral zw. Durbar Square und Thamel gelegen, aber aufgrund der Seitenstrasse trotzdem ruhig, freundlicher Service, schlechte Internetverbindung

ジェネレーターがない? 致命的でした。  タメル中心からも距離がある。

ネパールは一日の半分くらいが停電しているのですが、このホテルジェネレーターがない?のか壊れているのか、夜、電気がつきませんでした。 フロントに聞いたらあと2時間ほどで復旧する、といわれたものの、根拠もなく、結果やはり復旧せず。懐中電灯もなしとのこと。 タメルの街中からも離れている為、街明かりもなく、砂埃+公害で月明かりもないので、漆黒の中でipadの明かりだけで一晩を過ごしました。(まぁ早く寝ましたが。。。) wifiも通じませんでした。PWを入力してもらっても繋がらず、時間が経ったらチャレンジしてみて、とのこと。結局繋がらず。部屋だけではなく、フロントでも繋がらなかったので、そもそもジェネレーターがないから無線アンテナの電源入ってないのかもしれません。 布団がやたらたくさんありましたが、毛布はベタベタ、枕カバーはしみだらけ。。 朝方の気温はマイナス2℃でしたが、朝から隙間風が。。。 インド系の人が多く、日本人はほとんど泊まっているのを見たことがない、と現地ガイドが言っていました。 なぜココを選んだのか、今となっては僕も疑問。 値段に関してももっと安いホテルがタメル中心にたくさんあります。 日本人旅行者がココを選ぶ理由はないと思います。

 中心部に近く便利でした。  オーナーがフレンドリーな方で、ポカラ往復のバス・飛行機の手配も良心的な値段で素早くやってくれました。  部屋は贅沢な造りではありませんが値段を考えれば十分に満足です。
