    Only small things to be fixed for future. The latch of the bathroom need a repair. I wish to have more Western capable power sockets.

    Butique sort of, family driven hotel in a side road with a few minutes walk to all places of my interest in the area. God loundry service and a choice of meals. Sunny room. Very good price to quality rate.

    The location is about 5-10 mins walk from the main road.

    This place is more like a home-stay run by people who are loving and kind. They treat you like a guest to their house and provides the best facilities they can. This is not a fancy luxurious hotel. At any time of the day you can join them for a meal and dive into a nice conversation.

    I really recommend this hotel to all people who travel to Kathmandu and would like to stay in a beautiful environment with a family atmosphere. I loved to stay with family who owns the hotel. They were taking care of me like I am their daughter. I fell amazing there and I will definitely come back. Aha, and food was delicious 😋

    There is nothing that you wouldn't like in this place. The whole family is just adorable. I would rather rephrase it in a sense that as I have visited in a lil bit cold season; there are 2 common bathrooms which are comfortable and clean enough, however only 1 bathroom has a water heater (which was perfectly working fine anyway). But, it didn't bother me at all anyway. Some or one room has attached bathroom.

    Almost everything from the budget, location, cleanliness, space, ambience, food and most especially the service and hospitality. There is this sense of feeling like you are part of their family. The whole family are very accommodating and helpful.

    The worst hotel Ever

    The hotel is run by an elderly man and his son. It's basically an old house, being used as a cheap accommodation. After reaching up there, we noticed that the toilet can only be opened from outside . The location is distant , the room was dusty and the bedsheet was dirty. Even there was no soap or slippers provided. We wanted to shift to another hotel and the elderly man started steaming on us, his behaviour was so rough and bad , we wanted to walk right away from the property. The son came and he was logical. He understood our problems and helped us move out . But, by far, that was the worst hotel experience we had.

    The hotel has a nice and small garden in front.

    The staff brings the laundry out to somewhere. My black clothes were bleached beyond recognition which really upset me, plus I walked around with the bleach smell from my clothes. It is not the fault of the hotel. It's best to bring the laundry to somewhere yourself and make sure they don't use bleach.

    Staff are very helpful, friendly and accommodating. The place is quiet as long as the stray dogs are not around, which is beyond the control of the staff. There are places to buy groceries, toiletries, and cell phone/SIM cards.

Nothing was ever too much trouble and we were treated like family! Can't wait to go back next year!
