THE QUICK RESPONSE OF THE HOTEL STAFF
Taxi services from hotel were expensive then the rates outside
Staff are so friendly and helpful. Got certain valuable info from the reception desk. Good location, quite and only 10 minutes walk to Thamel. Breakfast buffet is fantastic!
It will be better if the room size could be larger.
Staff friendliness and helpfulness. Wonderful pool and deck and grassy area surrounding. AC and wifi were good, included breakfast buffet was good as well.
Katmandu. Crowded, noisy, dirty. Will never come back.
Service Breakfast buffet Size of Room Location Cleanliness
WI Fi temperamental Beware they charge room to bank card rather than wait to give you the option to pay in local currency
I like this hotel as it is very compact at the lobby, easily reach to chek in counter, seating area, bell counter. All staff are very friendly, ready to help you.
The hotel has lift from lobby to rooms but the breakfast room is one floor below the lobby without lift.
I took my sister there for her Birthday :-D It was wonderful. Everyone was very helpful and it was a comfortable stay.
they close the pool at 9 pm :-( we would come back to the hotel really late and by the time the pool was closed. We never get a chance to hang out there at night :-(
Small LCD TV
Room was large and very comfortable 2 x Airconditioners Great Breakfast Friendly staff - our fridge wasn't working and with in 10 minutes they were there to fix it Great shower
Nothing that I can think of
Location Staff Breakfast Garden
Not very cooperative with foreigner. Not a value for money deal.
My trip was cut short and they let me change my booking very easily. Said they were booked when we got there and ended up upgrading us from a standard room to a suite room for free! It was huge and clean. They have backup generators so the electricity loss wasn't an issue. Nice and quiet, really almost made us forget we were in Kathmandu. Everyone was awesome and helpful, food was great, they arranged airport transportation and brought us to and from the spa which was also amazing. Didn't check out the pool or bar so not sure about those but overall I couldn't have been happier with the experience.
It's still in Kathmandu, so the water is smelly and gross.
front desk staff
The staff are incredible here, my friend was ill on our day of check out and they organised a doctor to come see them with a half hour, straight to the room an they let us overstay the check in at no extra cost. Amazing staff, amazing hotel. Can't fault it.
Stunning location in a former royal palace, excellent service by personnel, varied breakfast, good swimming pool, travel desk for tours.
Nothing really, this place is very relaxing after a day in noisy and busing Kathmandu.
Everything is good, staff are nice and helpful, the food are tasteful and the shop of the hotel is great too.
Maybe a little old but is accecptable.
Garden, Swimming pool. We had amazing time.
Food, Breakfast was amazing but dinner........ not so good.
On arrival at the hotel on 25/8/14 my husband and I went to check in and found the reception staff very off putting. They treated us with disdain and juried us through the check in, did not offer us a welcome drink, did not tell us about facilities and breakfast times etc. we were hurried away to our rooms. My husband had to return to the desk to enquirer about Wifi access as we were not given out pass codes on arrival (even though wifi was included in room rate)!! However, the Buffett breakfast was amazing, fantastic selection of foods to choose from. The restaurant and Bar offered a good choice of foods and were good value for money. The pool was really clean and well maintained which the children lived in daily. All rooms were cleaned daily and we found all other staff in the hotel very courteous and polite. It was just the rude reception staff that jet the hotel down !!
Restaurant, pool & housekeeping
Customer service at the front desk was not upto the Mark with the other departments of the hotel. Found the front office staff inattentive & careless various times during the stay..
Good hotel best for tourists....
Great location. Rs.100-150 from Thamel or Durbar Square. Quiet, yet in the heart of the city. Lovely property - colonial in style. Lush garden - if only it rained less! Breakfast was fully loaded with a wide enough assortment. Beds were clean.
Airconditioning was weak for the size of the room and if only there were ceiling fans to help bust the humid weather. We wanted to keep the windows open for fresh air, but without a fan, it was stuffy. If the rooms had a nice view, it could have been better - but hey, you cant have it all !
Pool, breakfast, staff behaviour, location etc
Nothing to not like!!!
