    I love this hotel and always stay there when in Kathmandu. Located at the heart of Thamel. Very nice and helpful staff. They can organize everything you need. Very good Markham Bistro offers breakfast, lunch and dinner. Various room categories available, depending on your budget.

    The hotel's restaurant should provide a little more option in the menu.

    The ambience of the room is phenomenal and overall it was a good stay. Totally satisfied. Would love to stay and visit very soon.

    If they decorates the other half of the building will be more competitive and clean at all. The room without window should improve the smell.

    Everything is good.

    The included breakfast selection was awful and not adjustable. Really didn't understand their system.

    One of the best rooms and beds I've experienced in Nepal in general. Very comfortable, clean, spacious and QUITE! Kathamandu is very hectic, noisy and dusty. It was nice to come back to this hotel after a long day. The inner garden is nice to hangout although not much space to sit around in privacy. The stuff was friendly.

    At my arrive they gave me a standard room. It was old, the bed was not comfortable at all. I changed it with a superior room..

    The standard room are old rooms. If you want the rooms showed in photos you have to book superior or deluxe rooms.

    We were in the old rooms but booked thinking we were in the modern rooms so very over price for what we got. No lift, so you take your own bags to the rooms. You can hear everything from the streets below, which start making noise from about 4.30am. Also booked the wrong month and was charged as didn't notice until after the date. what not sent a reminder.

    The location is great and staff are nice.
