The hospitality is one of the best in Nepal. The room is comfortable, and clean. The hot shower & wi-fi are very well. The best thing about the hotel is the interactions with the staff, they take the time and effort to talk with their guests about their city, weather and books!! Thank you Mr babu ,tula and their staff!!thanks...
