Location good, first room was bad

location, location, location
First they put me in some bad quality room, lots of problems. Fan did not work, televisoon not work. After telling these problems they finally change me to room that was ok. Dont know why they put customers who stay longer time, to bad quality rooms. And if you stay one night you get good room right away. Like i did last time.

best hotel during my stay in nepal

attentive staff, lovely room, center location
The staff offered really good and helpful servivce. One of my luggage wheels was broken and the staff contacted their repairman to make it work. The hotel located in the center of the thamel and it's very convenient to get any shops or restaurants. The counter on 1st floor would arrange your tour according to your personal requirements with a price a little bit higher than the market but acceptable.
