Very kind staff (s) always there for you when you have a request. Good hotel to relax after spending long hours on sightseeing. Highly recommended place to stay!
The penthouse suite was fantastic: The design, the details (my country flag, the stuffed tiger, utensils in the laquer box), view to the rooftop garden and the mountains/sunrise. Very friendly staff made my stay very warm and personal.
Staff is extremely cooperative and well-trained.
Room size is small
Very friendly and helpful staff every thing done to make us feel welcome.one of the friendliest we have ever stayed at.
Only downside is that it has no lift like it 's sister hotel 50metres away.
the staff are very kind always smile，and help you taking luggage to your room.
for me the only pity thing is the room may little small，cause we take the 28size luagge，after put 2 luagge，there may not have enough place to move like normal
good service and staff like a friends and hotel in the market nice place
Location and comfort is the best at thamel.staff well trained
Beds are comfortable Rooms are clean Staff very friendly Breakfast that you can have any time you wake up
Water for shower no power Wifi password changes all the time
Great location, helpful and friendly staff, good food. Wi-fi worked well.
We had to wait to much time for the meals, at least 45 minutes even for breakfast that was not buffet. Attention with the restaurant bill (once was incorrect) and with the hotel bill. It was charged one night more in the credit card but refunded. Very expensive hotel but I recommend it anyway.
Staff were friendly and very helpful. Was also in a great location. Would definitely stay here again.
Nice hotel in the heart of Thamel.
A little bit overpriced, no yard or garden
I liked all!!!! It wAs a big surprise to find a hotel that you can't find anything bad to say about. Even some details that put the hotel in a WOW level.
Spacious room and bathroom. Excellent location. Wifi free of charge and strong connections. I personally think it is the friendliness and attentiveness of the staff which makes this hotel stand out. Nothing is too much effort for them. Decorations are a bit too much but not disturbingly so. Will definitely stay here again!
Bathroom in need of some loving care!
Breakfast & location very good
It is a very clean hotel. The staff are very kind and always helpful. The staff were always smiling and went out of their way to assist. The rooms are very clean and has all the amenities. The location is right in the centre of Thamel which is the touristic and lively area of the city.
It is a pity that the hotel does not have an elevator. It is difficult to go up four flights of stairs. However, there is constant electric cuts in the city and perhaps that is why the hotel did not put an elevator.
Highly recommended. The staff was very nice and useful. The room was comfortable and clean. The location was perfect. We will stay there again without a doubt.
staff: always there to help you if you need anything. location: in the heart of Thamel room: a bit small but with a balcony restaurant: they make really good momo
A bit pricey for Kathmandu but an excellent place to stay!
All staff are very cooperative.
Stayed at the hotel after trekking the Annapurna Circuit and enjoyed every minute of the stay. With great rooms, excellent staff and 24hr power I will definitely be back the next time in Nepal.
- Wonderful staff - large and comfortable suite - creative decor with a sense of humor - back-up generator very important in Katmandu! - amenities in room -wonderful massage and facial services at spa
Perfect location .. very clean rooms .. good food .. excellent wifi service I highly recommend it to those who wants to stay in thamel kathmandu
The room is small but other wise everything is ok
Great location, clean big rooms, wonderful staff!! Very helpful with booking side trips It is boutique hotel, keep that in mind Even offered me a free 3 hour stay in room to clean up when I came back 3 days after stay and was witing to go to airport!
Is a 3% charge for credit payment of room, no elevator, not an issue for me, but may be for some
Interesting penthouse suit with large mirrors next to the bed.
The penthouse suit was very noisy as they have a massive generator on the roof right next to the room. Also the jacuzzi did not work!
