      Staff helpfully and friendly

      Poor room cleanliness, and very tired furnishings Bed linen contained dust mites - which staff changed

      The staff where very friendly and helpful, and the hotel is in a good location. It is a few minutes walk from Thamel, but it is far enough away from it to be quiet at night.

      I initially booked an economy room at $50 a night. When I arrived, I found that the room smelt very musty, the beds where very old ( the state of the mattresses was disgusting), and the fittings in the room (especially the bathroom) where broken and filthy. I upgraded to the "deluxe" room at $70 a night, because the economy room was just too disgusting to stay in. The deluxe room was much better. It seemed to have been redone, because it was newer and much less shabby and broken down. I was shocked at the economy room. I read reviews on this hotel before I booked it, and I think that they did not reflect the state of the economy room at all. The one that I was initailly going to stay in was on the 3rd floor at the end of the corridor. I would recommend avoiding this room at all costs!

      There was nothing I liked in this hotel. It was horrible. Everything was dirty. I was supposed to stay for three nights here but I stayed for only one night. The moment I entered my room I already wanted to leave but since it was already so late I decided to stay at least for that night. But I called the Reception right away and advised them that I am checking out in the morning. I couldn't sleep the whole night. The bed was terrible. I placed towel on it so that somehow I could lay down (both towels and bed covers can be used to scrub your corns and calluses). This is fine for men maybe but if you are a lady I am not sure you can stay longer in this hotel. I booked here because I wanted to save some money but that decision was so wrong. That night I right away made a booking to another hotel (Everest Hotel).

      I enjoyed the friendly dinning room staff. The concierge type fellow was very helpful and willingly assisted us with a cab out the front of the building. I also felt the security guard on duty on the evening of my stay to be pleasant and kindly.

      The receptionist was icy cold. The beds were uncomfortable. Someones thongs were still on the floor in the room. The grounds were littered with rubble. It was on a busy highway and so was quite noisey. The photo online did not represent accurately what the real thing was like. The cleaner was asking for the key 2hrs before checkout - as it happened we were leaving anyway.

      Rooms were nice, staff were friendly and cooperative, assisted with organising tours etc. The security staff were also friendly and helpful.

      I expected to pay the agreed rate at the time of the booking, but this isn't how it works at this hotel. When I went to confirm what I owed I was told one figure, 4 hours later when returning with the money the price had increased 30%. I'm told the price fluctuates according to the exchange rate movements. This was a con, the exchange rate used by the hotel was much less favourable than Western Union were quoting down the road.

      Free internet access, uncomplicated desk staff.

      Service of the kitchen staff for breakfast.

      The only good thing was the location in Kathmandu city.

      Bathroom was dirty, beds were very hard, too expensive for what you get.

      Near Thamel

      Price did´nt include the Vat and service..., Not worth the money because location is very noisy in the corner of Lazimpat Avenue with too much traffic and dust. Rooms covered with dust and dirt, beds very hard ....
